What You Need to Know Before Buying a Signal Booster


If you’re looking for the right signal booster for your needs, make sure you do your research first. The wrong product can cause you more trouble than it’s worth, and may end up costing you far more than what you paid initially.

Sure you could buy a legacy booster or repeater from the back of an airline magazine, from a no-name website or off the back of a truck in an alley someplace. Or you could be smart and buy a signal booster that’s been authorized for use by your mobile carrier.

Cel-Fi smart signal boosters have been authorized for use by more than 137 mobile operators in 66 countries. That means they have been specifically tested for the job they’re meant to do.

Operator approval is important. If you choose to ignore it and purchase a signal booster that does not meet the new guidelines laid out by the FCC for consumer boosters, you could have them or some other regulatory body knocking on your door telling you to shut down your repeater because it’s interfering with other operator networks.

It’s really pretty simple. When looking for a smart signal booster, buy it from a company that has the specific authorization from your operator. So you can either talk to your mobile network operator, visit our website cel-fi.com knowing that our smart signal boosters are authorized for use and designed specifically to meet the needs of 137 mobile operators, or contact one of our sales reps who can point you in the right direction.

It doesn’t matter which of those options you choose. What’s more important is knowing what not to choose.
