Signal boosters – are they worth it?

Mobile phone signal boosters have been around for years, their basic function is to take mobile phone signal from outside and amplify it inside, this is particularly useful for areas of poor or unreliable signal, such as remote/rural homes or offices. A signal booster usually consists of an outdoor and indoor antenna, along with a booster box. It is recommended that you fit the external antenna as high up as possible, some people prefer to fix this antenna to their chimney or outside of an upstairs bedroom, as it will provide most effective there.

Once fitted, you should ensure that your antenna is pointed towards your nearest mobile phone tower, you can get signal checker apps on your phone that may help you with this.
