11 best cellular and internet signal boosters

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Networks of mobile operators are constantly expanding their coverage areas, more and more base stations with towers are being launched. However, there are still many places where the signal strength is insufficient for a normal and stable Internet, and in some places even simple voice communication goes with great interruptions. To solve this problem, there are special devices – signal amplifiers for cellular communication and the Internet. The team presents you with a special rating with reviews of the best, according to our experts, devices and kits for ensuring stable and high-quality mobile communication where the signal is too weak and unstable in its pure form.

How to choose a signal booster for cellular communication and Internet

First, let's figure it out, and in what situations and circumstances you may need a signal amplifier in general, what tasks can such devices cope with, what kind of pitfalls can be in installation and operation, well, and most importantly – what should be guided when choosing an amplifier signal of cellular communication and the Internet.

So, the main task of the amplifier is to provide a confident signal in those places where there may be interruptions with its stability and power. In cities, the cause of an unstable signal can be overloads at repeater stations, outside the city – dead zones due to the peculiarities of the terrain and, by definition, a lower density of operator towers, worse coverage, a different prioritization (in favor of voice, to the detriment of the Internet, for example) and other.

As of 2019, mobile operators operating in the Russian market use six frequency bands: 450, 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Within these figures, all the current generation-standards of cellular communication are covered – 2G, 3G, UMTS, 4G, LTE and all their possible variations. So, 2G provides only voice communication and uses frequencies of 900 and 1800 MHz; 3G is already 'two-in-one' – both voice and Internet at 900 and 2100 MHz; 4G in the basic version is designed only for the transmission of ultra-high-speed Internet at frequencies of 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz. However, today in Russia the situation is different – LTE operates at a frequency of 900 MHz, and most of the operators have already acquired permits to use the frequency of 2100 MHz. Since the beginning of 2019, in addition to basic LTE, the VoLTE service has been added – the transmission of voice data through the 4G packet network inclusive (switching between 4G and 2G / 3G occurs 'on the fly', invisible to the user).

Knowing all these points is important when choosing the most suitable model or kit for amplifying the cellular communication and / or Internet signal. When buying a signal amplifier for cellular communication and the Internet, you should be clearly aware of what exactly you are going to amplify – voice communication, 4G broadband Internet, or something else. Our rating will feature different sets, each of which copes with some task better, and some worse.

Outside large cities, in places with low population density, the frequency of 900 MHz is used mostly – it is the most 'long-range'. In big cities, they mostly use GSM1800, 3G, and LTE.

If we are talking about strengthening the signal of cellular communication and the Internet in large warehouse and office premises within the city, experts recommend using repeaters at a frequency of 2100 and 1800 MHz. Why them is a separate topic, but such a recommendation is quite justified. In general, a general rule applies here – the smartphone will always try to connect to the highest of those frequencies that are available to it in the current location. Therefore, when choosing an amplifier, you should focus precisely on the upper operating frequencies. If the task is to cover the entire range of capabilities of a cellular operator in a certain area or room, there are multi-band combined devices for this.

One of the key characteristics of a set of equipment for amplifying a cellular communication and Internet signal is the output power – it determines the area that the repeater can cover with the already amplified signal. So, for example, an amplifier with an output power of 100 mW is able to provide coverage with a stable and high-quality signal of 200-300 sq. meters of area. With a power of 250-300mW, the local coverage area will already be 500-1000 sq. meters – the best option for country houses with large areas. It is wise to buy an amplifier with a small headroom, but without the 'kinks'. An excessively powerful amplifier, under certain conditions, can itself cause interference at the base station of a cellular operator. Such an object will be instantly 'calculated' by the relevant services, the owner will be fined, and the equipment in the worst case will be confiscated, and at best it will simply be banned for further use.

Another visual and indicative characteristic of the amplifier is the gain. It is measured in decibels (dB), and shows how much the signal at the output will rise in relation to the input.

And one more important point. The signal amplifier amplifies this very signal by a documentary value only under ideal conditions and provided that only one channel is used. In fact, interference, noise, interference and conversations of several subscribers simultaneously within the local coverage area are inevitable. Each of these factors, to one degree or another, will reduce the effect of strengthening the cellular communication and Internet signal for each individual user.

Finally, the bundle. Signal amplifiers are most often sold as complete kits. Each such kit ideally includes the repeater itself, connecting cables, various accessories, and two antennas – a large external (receive) and a compact internal (transmit). But a variety of variations of this configuration are possible, depending on the specific model.

The best single and dual band cellular and internet signal boosters

In the first nomination of the rating, we will consider rather highly specialized amplifiers that operate only at one or two specific frequencies or standards. Here we will consider two examples of such devices, each of which is produced in many versions for each frequency, but individually can only serve one or two within the two communication standards.

Everstream ES1800P

Rating: 4.9

Everstream ES1800P

The nomination is opened by a repeater of the Everstream trademark, a domestic brand owned by the Sigma Service company. The manufacturer has been working in the telecommunications market since 2007, and since then has grown from a small installation firm into a major integrator in the field of cellular communications.

This particular amplifier operates within the GSM1800 / LTE1800 frequencies and standards. However, this is only a representative of a whole series, and for each frequency the company produces a separate device of exactly the same form factor and configuration. The difference is only in the operating frequency and, accordingly, in the nomenclature. We take ES1800P as an illustrative example.

So, this model is a repeater with an operating frequency of 1800 MHz, capable of operating at this frequency in GSM and LTE networks. The output signal power is 100mW, which provides coverage up to 300 sq. meters of area.

The working frequency band is within 75 MHz. In this case, this means that in the direction of the station-telephone, data exchange is in the frequency range 1805-1880 MHz, and in the opposite direction – in the range 1710-1785 MHz.

The repeater gain is 65dB for the station-to-telephone direction and 60dB for the reverse. In this case, the maximum output power, which is regulated by the internal automation, is 19 and 20 dBm, respectively. The permissible gain unevenness in the operating band is +/- 3dB.

The dimensions of the device are 230x130x34mm, weight – 1.2kg. To work, he needs a 12V, 2A power supply. In operation, it consumes no more than 10W of electrical power.

This series is recommended for equipping offices in semi-basements, country houses, in specific cases – for change houses at remote construction sites. The device is equipped with a sufficiently informative LCD display, a base station pointing scale, attenuators (devices for reducing EM oscillations). The outgoing power can be manually adjusted.

Advantages

  • reliability and continuity;
  • the ability to manually adjust the outgoing power;
  • stable outgoing signal;
  • availability in installation and operation;
  • LCD screen.

disadvantages

  • no significant deficiencies were noted.

VEGATEL VT-1800 / 3G

Rating: 4.8

VEGATEL VT-1800 / 3G

The second nominee of this selection of our rating is a product of the domestic plant 'Moscow Microwaves' – a dual-band amplifier of cellular communication and Internet signal VEGATEL VT-1800 / 3G.

This is a basic level household repeater designed to amplify and stabilize the signal of cellular communication and the Internet of generations 2G, 3G and 4G over two operating bands – 1800 and 2100 MHz. Such frequency coverage allows solving most of the problems with voice communication and the Internet that arise within the city.

To be precise, the device operates in three directions – GSM-1800, LTE-1800 and UMTS-2100. The latter is the main one for 3G networks in the Russian Federation. UMTS-2100 provides both voice telephony and Internet. GSM-1800 is used by operators where the 'long-range' 900MHz frequency is unavailable or overloaded. The same will apply to new operators, for example, the Tele2 provider, which entered the domestic market quite late, uses only 1800 MHz frequency to provide 2G communication. As for LTE-1800, this standard is often used by Russian cellular operators to provide 4G communications. The main and most used frequency for LTE is still 2600 MHz, but LTE-1800 is quite often used in certain cities and even regions of Russia.

The gain in this model is 65 and 60 dB in the station-telephone and telephone-exchange directions, respectively. Both automatic and manual gain control are provided. Built-in automatic protection against failure due to overload. For manual adjustment, a mechanical switch on the front panel is used – manual adjustment is allowed up to 15 dB in 5 dB steps. Incoming and outgoing signals are configured independently of each other.

In conclusion, a few words about the physical characteristics of the device. Repeater dimensions – 205x175x45mm, weight – 0.84kg. Made in a durable metal case in a natural silver shade. Special holes on the housing allow you to mount the repeater on the wall. In operation, it consumes 20W of electrical power. The level of protection against the influence of external factors corresponds to IP40.

Depending on the point of sale, you can buy the repeater itself separately, or a whole set with outdoor and indoor antennas, cable and additional accessories. Individual distributors allow you to select a complete set at the discretion of the buyer.

Advantages

  • reliability and continuity;
  • ease of installation and operation;
  • automatic and manual gain control;
  • protection from external adverse factors;
  • metal case.

disadvantages

  • not the most outstanding amplification power.

PicoCell 1800 SXL

Rating: 4.7

PicoCell 1800 SXL

The third repeater in the nomination for the rating of the best amplifiers for cellular communication and the Internet according to the version is another sample of high-quality products of the Moscow Microwaves plant, only of a different brand – PicoCell. This is the most powerful amplifier in this group.

This device is significantly more massive than the previous versions – dimensions 240x165x80mm and weighs 1.7kg. Enclosed in a metal case without any special design delights. The front panel houses a black and white LCD screen.

With this configuration, the amplifier is capable of providing coverage in the thousands or even tens of thousands of square meters. Ultimately, the actual coverage will depend on a number of factors. This is the nature of the incoming signal (how much it can be fully amplified), the quality and characteristics of the antennas, the length of the cable (the longer, the more losses), the specifics of the premises and materials of the walls / partitions. Location is also important. So, in urban conditions, the radius of the coverage area can be minimal – from 200 meters; at the same time, outside the city, in open spaces, the repeater may well broadcast an amplified signal for 1 or even 2 kilometers.

Experts say that one of the key advantages of this amplifier for cellular communication and the Internet is the presence of an efficiently integrated protection of the operator's network from interference created by the amplifier itself. Being extremely powerful, the repeater does not interfere with the nearby base stations of cellular operators. Also a big plus is the automatic power control – the repeater changes the power when the incoming signal changes.

This model is recommended for widespread use – in office premises, country houses, small shopping centers, etc. The manufacturer provides an official 12-month warranty.

Advantages

  • record power;
  • reliability and continuity;
  • automatic power control;
  • effective protection against outgoing interference that can affect the operation of base stations of cellular operators.

disadvantages

  • some users don't like the clumsy design (a dubious flaw).
