Cell Phone Boosters
« on: February 21, 2020, 12:40:02 PM »
Has anyone used cell phone boosters for commercial buildings? Like 10,000sqft?

Trying to read up on this is difficult because there are so many scam reviews out there..

home docking station from M**** about $200 using tower finder.  most else is junk.
Why is my ringtone sounds of a pinball machine?  To find out why, try calling me during a game of pinball.

We went went the Wilson Pro by the way. Not cheap, about $1100 but it seems to work pretty well. Will repeat a signal and strengthen it quite a bit.. of course there are times when the signal completely drops out in the area which nothing is going to help with but that's another issue entirely.

Sweet unit, it was out of my budget.  You can call Mars with that thing.  Auto tower detect?  Set it and forget it!

Did you manage to install the antenna at the top of the building, preferably above the roof on a pole, on the side closest to the nearest tower?
