This may be a dumb question, or just lack of me knowing how things work but the booster themselves is it an actualy "BOOSTER" or does it just send a separate signal? My issue is that the connection on my phone is rarely 4G so when im connected, things just take a very long time or i run at ~150-200ms. Will this booster increase my signal thus lowering my ping?
Most work by capturing the signal with an outside antenna, amplify it, then rebroadcasting it inside. Some have an inside cradle that the cell phone has to be placed into. Others use an inside antenna to broadcast a stronger signal inside (to avoid causing a signal loop. the outside antenna has to be separated from the inside antenna by a certain distance, the amount depending on the type of equipment used).
I recently installed a Straight Talk home phone setupmade by Huawei to replace my landline because of the excessive number of robocalls I was getting (granted, even one is excessive but I was getting several a day). It works on the Verizon network and allows m to connect my cordless phone base station to it. Since I live in an aluminum box (mobile home), to get a decent signal, I installed a cable from the home phone box to out side and installed the original antenna outside. Sprint has discontinued using Huawei but they may have something else similar.Edited by Lady Fitzgerald - 2/12/16 at 12:56pm
