Connect 4G-X is ideally built for home and offices with a range of 7500 square feet. if you want a signal booster for a smaller location, you can go for Connect 4G, which has a range of 5000 square feet.

Specifications
  • Compatible with all US and Canada carriers including Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and many more.
  • Has a range of up to 7500 square feet.
  • Quick and easy, do it yourself installation.

If you are living in a rural area and got tired of trying different signal boosters then you are absolutely going to love this.

We boost Connect 4G works great in rural areas.

In most of the rural areas, the only way to get a hold of internet connection is to either get a satellite connection or go for a cell phone provider. Satellite connection is expensive and would require quite a maintenance.

Cell phone provider, on the other hand, is cheap and easy to get, but would usually catch weak signals. In that condition, WeBoost 4G-X comes as the ultimate solution.

The booster comes with a range of around 7500 square feet, which would be more than enough. However, before installing the booster, you need to go make sure you are installing it at a point that has the strongest connection. To be sure about that, try installing it at various points in the house.

If you have ever used any signal boosters in past, then you must have faced the problem of battery drainage. it's true that signal boosters consume some part of the battery and same happens with WeBoost connect 4G-X, but as compared to other signal boosters the drainage with Connect 4G-X is quite less.

WeBoost connect 4G also comes with Auto gain technology that automatically balances the signal strength inside the home when the signals outside are too strong. Most of the other signal boosters will completely shut down in these situations and will end up providing no signals what so ever.

The indoor antenna could be improved to a further extent. It works great for short range, but once you start getting far away from the antenna, the signals start getting weaker. In short, the antenna doesn't perform well with concrete walls or any blockage.

Pros

  • Comes with patented automatic gain technology.
  • Consumes only a small percentage of battery.
  • Works great in rural areas.
  • Compatible with all cell phone providers in the US & Canada.
  • Coverage range of 7500 sq. feet.

Cons

  • Booster gets really hot sometimes.

Conclusion:

Though the booster comes with a really hefty price tag, we think the overall features make up to it. It’s compatible with all the cell phone carriers in the market and performs really well in rural areas and woods. If none of the boosters in the market worked for you, this will surely do.


2. Sure call Flare Signal Booster

SureCall Flare Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit for All Carriers 3G/4G LTE up to 2,500 Sq Ft If we don't take the WeBoost signal boosters into consideration, then the sure call boosters would be our most probable choice.

The one thing that we found out quite different from other cell phone signal boosters is the overall design. The Sure call flare comes in a unique triangular shaped design, in silver colors with beautiful engraved spiral lines on top.
We would also like to talk here regarding something that is mistaken by most of the signal booster users.Most of the users complain that the booster didn't work for them at all. Well, for a booster to work, there must be some type of signals. Weak, very weak signals would work. But, if you have absolutely no signals in your area, no booster will work.

Cell Phone Signal Boosters - Buyer's Guide

The Reasons behind Bad Cell phone signals.

KKBSTR Cell Phone Signal Booster, Home ATT T-Mobile Verizon Sprint Cellular Signal Repeater Amplifier Kit - Enhance Your 2G 3G 4G Call Before we get into the solution of the problem, we need to find out why the problem has occurred?

There could be mainly 3 reasons behind bad cell phone signal reception:

  • Your distance from cell phone tower
  • Obstacles in the way between your home and tower
  • Construction material used in building your home/office.

Distance from Cell phone tower to your house:

This is the most common reason for bad reception.

You got settled in the woods and all the towers are installed in cities, which creates a very big distance gap between you and the cell phone tower.

The closer you stay to the tower, stronger the connection is. And, the moment to start going far, the connection gets weaker. At some point, it gets so weak that it can't even hold up a call or Internet connection.

You are likely to suffer from this issue if you are living in rural areas.

Obstacles between your home and Tower

The next reason behind bad signal reception could be too many buildings in the area, some mountains, and hills.

the cell phone signals are usually not able to penetrate this big mountains and building and bounce back.

You can also face this issue if you have underground locations in your house. Signal strength in the underground room is usually weak.

Construction Materials

This might come as a surprise, but yes! construction materials can cause signals blockage.

Things like brick, concrete, and block are well-known blockers of cell phone signals.

If you have noticed that the signals get jammed as soon as you step into your house, then the problem is mainly with the construction materials.

How to fix the weak signals issue with a Cell phone Signal Booster

KKBSTR Cell Phone Signal Booster, Home ATT T-Mobile Verizon Sprint Cellular Signal Repeater Amplifier Kit - Enhance Your 2G 3G 4G Call The first question that comes in mind when someone gets to know about signal boosters is if they actually work?

Well, if you have any kind of signals at your location, they will work. However, if you have absolutely zero signals, they then won't work.

A cell phone signal kit is made of an outside antenna, a signal amplifier, and an inside antenna.

The outside antenna receives the signals from the tower and passes it to the signal amplifier. The signal amplifier improves the signal strength and the passes it forward to an indoor antenna. From there the signals are directly absorbed by cell phones.
