Cell Phone Wi-Fi Signal Booster

on 2017 Jul 19th

Your Two Road Route to Wi-Fi

The first path to having Wi-Fi in your home is the well worn road of connecting to a router that uses landline internet. This is provided by internet service providers and is known as wireline internet .

A new highway has opened up and that is where we use our 3G and 4G LTE services that we receive from our cell phone carrier. 

This is of course wireless internet.

The Canadian Radio, Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) found in their 2016 communications monitoring report showed that 23.7% of Canadian households subscribe exclusively to wireline internet. The findings revealed that 13.6% subscribe exclusively to wireless internet. But these figures are set to dramatically change in the coming years as many more Canadians adopt wireless services. 

The wireline services have been in steady decline. 

Today we see that Canadian households have opted for using mobile phones (85.6%). This is a significant change from the 94% who were subscribed to landline service in the last decade.

In 2017 we see how 4G LTE offers high speed Wi-Fi internet which allows people to make their cellular devices the hub of all of their digital activities. With the arrival of 5G in the 2020 future we will see even more people “cutting the cord” and choosing wireless internet as their first choice.

Is It Too Good to Be True?

The fantastic thing about wireless internet is that it goes wherever you go. You are not tied to your home Wi-Fi router. You can move around the city texting, emailing, calling, posting pics to social media, downloading and uploading wherever there is a quality signal. 

Yes, that’s the snag – 

“Quality” signal. 

But it’s not that big of a deal if you have a cell phone Wi-Fi signal booster up your sleeve (well not literally). This is not a solution that your carrier likes to talk about, yet we all know how often our signals plunge to a sluggish one bar. When you have an FCC-certified cell phone signal booster at your fingertips it takes an outside signal, amplifies it up to 32X and rebroadcasts the now powerful signal to an area that needs a Wi-Fi lift in your home or car.

Isn’t Quality Signal My Carriers Job?

Yes, you are paying a carrier and your expectation is that they will consistently deliver top quality signal but they can’t because there are a few obstacles that get in the way of the signal reaching your phone. 

Well...

You could even be living right next to a cell tower and still not get full bars!

Remember that cell phone signals are radio waves (AM-FM) and they will always be susceptible to interference. These can be outside interference like tall structures, trees, hills, mountains and valleys. Building materials like glass, metal, concrete, electrical or magnetic conductive material, energy-efficient material can cause major interference. Internal building obstructions can also play a role in lowering your signal –thick walls, plaster, wood, electrical devices, drywall, clutter. 

And of course

–the weather. 

Yup, the weather.

This is where a cellphone signal booster is going to empower you with the convenience of quality signal!

You can say goodbye to bad reception, dropped calls and slow internet. A cellular Wi-Fi signal booster gives you peace of mind that you will always get signal when you need it most. At the same time, you are going to save dramatically on landline internet and upgrade to getting faster internet 24/7.

Here are a few life changing options…
