Significance of Cell phone Signal Boosters
Spending a minute without cell phones – It has become unbelievable.

Cell phones are not only used for the entertainment purpose but also it become the most convenient and effective device to communicate with each other.
But in spite of lots of advancement of technology, we still face issues during a call like voice is not audible clearly or internet becomes sluggish etc. Here cell phone signal booster comes into the picture.
Signal boosters play a vital role in providing continuous and high bandwidth signals in those places where normal signals become ineffective due to distance from towers or building construction materials.
There is a device named as cellular amplifier which receives weak signal and amplify them to stronger one regardless of mobile service provider.
Need of a Signal Booster
There may be several reasons for which you may need a signal booster like you are far away from a tower or your building construction materials or you have gone to visit some remote places. In these cases, signal booster will help you to maintain your call quality or internet speed.
Although the service providers are working for years to make sure the high bandwidth signal everywhere but high rise buildings at large towns or high hills/mountains in remote areas may become an obstacle for a continuous high quality signal.
Basically a signal booster reduces the distance between source to destination as the signal booster receives the signal, become the source and transmit the amplified signal within a closed place.
Types of signal boosters
Signal boosters are basically of two types: Analog booster and smart booster.
- Analog boosters are basically a broadband type basic booster or amplifier which can be used for all cell phones and all frequencies. The entire set up needs to be assembled and installed. There is an outside antenna comes with it separately.
- Smart Boosters are the most advance digital amplifiers which first receive the signals, clean them and rout. No separate installations are required for this. This type of boosters can operate specific frequencies only.
Based on generation of cellular technologies, Amplifiers can be classified further as 3G Amplifier or booster and 4G amplifier.
- 3G Amplifier: GSM, CDMA, UMTS, HDMA- these kind of wide range 2G and 3G technologies are dealt with this
- 4G Amplifier: 4G boosters are also work on 2G and 3G but basically it work with the most modern technologies like LTE, advanced LTE or LTE plus etc.
In cars and other vehicles panel antennas are found quite often which are very much suitable for both 3G & 4G signals and cover larger rooms.
The latest smart signal boosters are designed to amplify only specific radio frequencies for specific carriers. Hence it very much important to have an idea about your carrier’s frequency and the corresponding network you intends to use on it. Although, being a new technology, 4G LTE has a handful option of carriers. Every carrier operates 4G on different frequencies so you will need specific 4G LTE boosters for your specific carrier.
