Why on earth would you need a cell booster for your car?

OK, I know what you’re thinking. Everyone uses a phone in their car. I can see massive cell towers literally dotting the highways and byways. Cars have big glass windows that let signal through. So why would anyone need a cell booster for a car?

I see where you’re coming from and you’re not wrong. There are just a few more things you may want to consider.

It’s a battle for resources out there.
Sure, you may be able to see that massive cell tower but so can thousands of other people. No matter how big that tower is, there’s a chance it could get overloaded. With a cellular booster, you could potentially reach the tower with a stronger signal, hold onto it longer, and potentially reach a more distant tower if the one closest to you is congested.

Everyone can tell when you’re in the car. It’s not just because there’s a lot of noise; modern handsfree systems use noise reduction. They know because the signal is sometimes garbled and sometimes drops. This is due to low signal strength, plain and simple. A cellular signal booster can help with this.

Because you don’t always break down in the middle of the city.
You keep a lot of emergency gear in your car, right? Flashlight, tools, spare tire, blanket, etc, right? You do that because your car could break down. It’s the same thing with a cellular signal booster. You could need it to call for help when you’re really remote.
