Reprinted with permission from the weBoost blog

People who live in rural areas already know that they are farther away from urban towns and cities, but they may not realize that they are being unnecessarily inconvenienced by being farther away from something else that is so important in this day and age: a cell tower.

For most people, even rural people, a significant portion of life is linked to their cell phones. From staying connected to the world through social media, researching details on obscure subjects, and paying bills via mobile apps, cell phones help us manage many aspects of our lives. But without a strong signal from a nearby cell tower, how can we stay up to date? How do I improve cell phone reception in remote areas?

If you live in a rural or remote area, off-grid cabin, farm or in the mountains and need help boosting your cell phone’s 4G, LTE or internet signal, we can help.

We’ve compiled the best cell phone signal boosters for rural areas to give you a strong signal no matter how far away you live from the nearest cell tower.

Do cell phone boosters work in rural areas?

Yes, in fact, many people in cabins or off-grid homes utilize a booster so they can make calls and send texts inside their homes.

Every weBoost booster has an outside antenna that captures the weak, outside signal then it’s amplified by the booster. Finally, the inside antenna distributes the amplified cell signal to your cellular devices in your home or vehicle. The booster will amplify any carrier’s network so you can experience a strong signal no matter the carrier you have.

OMG! I Got Cell Phone Signal At My Cabin! – WeBoost

“Connecting to the world is now part of our lives. Before weBoost, to get a cell phone signal I would have to climb up a tree or on the roof of my cabin! I’m barely kidding. weBoost helps me to connect to my family and to the outside world. I would never want to live without it.”

weBoost Home Multiroom Cell Signal Booster (3G, 4G, & LTE) Review

“Not only has call quality and stability improved, since the booster captures 4G/LTE signal, mobile data speeds are also about 10 times faster (because dBm rates are logarithmic). Note though, that this is only true in range of the booster, and the signal improvement did not really extend into other floors of the house.”
