Weekend Project: Install a Cell Booster

So you’re going to spend a lot of time inside this winter. You ditched your land line and you’re happy that you don’t pay $50 for a boat anchor. Problem is, you didn’t think it all the way through and you have dead spots in the house.

Installing a cell booster is a quick and easy fix. It’s really as easy as 1,2,3.

(1) Mount the antenna to the highest point on your house that you possibly can.
(2) Run the cable inside the house.
(3) Connect the cable and plug in the booster.

Yes it really is that easy. You can read about my installation experience here. A cell booster makes it possible for me to work away from the office, which, as a roving blogger, I do a lot. It’s an essential part of my business toolkit.

Cell boosters don’t generally amplify 4G signals, but if you’re in the home you probably have wi-fi anyway, right?
