2. Non Geographical Obstructions
3. In Building Connectivity
When you do not receive a good cell phone signal outside, thereâs hardly a chance that you will get a signal when youâre inside your homes, office or any other building. Signal strength is also a problem in underground parking lots. The building materials used are often very dense and do now allow such low frequency waves to easily penetrate. You cannot choose your building materials based on the cell phone signalâs penetration. The various building materials such as window insulation, metal roofing and foil insulation on roofs, concrete and bricks, metallic doors and the other wiring and plumbing are just few of the various components used in a building that can very well obstruct your cell phone signals.
All the above mentioned problems can be solved in several ways. You can either change your mobile service carrier, install a Femtocell which your network carrier may or may not sell and lastly you can install a cell phone signal booster. By spending just a few hundred dollars you can save a lot of pain and frustration. Simply install a cell phone signal booster to solve all the problems such as poor voice quality, dropped calls, mobile internet speed etc. An external antenna is placed in the area where the signal strength is the highest or simply facing the signal tower and then it sends the signal to an amplifier unit to repeat the signal and boost it. The signal is then made available for use via the internal antenna. All of these components are connected together by a low loss cable.
Installing an amplifier is pretty simple; you need to fix the external antenna which clamps to any surface. For best results, place the amplifier where it is protected by the outside weather. This can be done simply by keeping it inside the house where it is connected through a coaxial low loss cable to the external antenna. The internal antenna is usually placed in a location that provides signal to most of the areas in your house. Such places can be the central hall or living room area where you spend the maximum time when youâre home. Make sure that when placing the internal antenna it is placed at least 7 feet above the ground to relay the signal to all areas of the house.
