Cellular Booster Professional Design & Installation Services


Why is My Cell Service So Bad?

You’re texting, chatting on the phone, or streaming when suddenly, your connection falters. Your calls drop, messages take forever to send, and videos start buffering.  Well, you are not alone!  If your cell service goes from decent to unstable, there is always a reason.

A few reasons this might happen:  Building Materials, Cell Tower Distance, Heavy Cellular Traffic, Landscape, Weather, Blocking Your Antenna, Low Battery, Cosmic Events, Reflective Coatings on Windows and Your Phone Holds onto a Poor Cellular Band even when a Better one is Available.


Step 1 - Site Survey

The site survey is an opportunity for the installer to take signal strength readings from the rooftop and individual rooms of a building, usually with a signal meter. These professional readings indicate the strength of the outside signal, as well as the rooms with the strongest and weakest signals. That data will then be incorporated into the overall system design to ensure maximum effectiveness.

During the survey, the installer will note the type equipment you need and where it should be installed. The three most important pieces of equipment in a booster system are:

  • The donor antenna (outside antenna), which is placed on the roof of the building.
  • The signal booster (amplifier), which amplifies the signal.
  • The broadcast antenna (inside antenna), which transmits the boosted signal to your device.

The installer will note the best positions for all these components, and also make an estimate for how much cable and which accessories are needed for the system to work as a whole.

Step 2 - System Design

Based on the site signal survey, the installer will recommend a rough design based on the building’s floor plan and the existing signal strength outside the building. Since commercial buildings vary greatly in size (from 20,000 square feet to more than 200,000 square feet, for example), it’s important for any cell signal booster design to be customized. For example, your building may require only one donor antenna but several broadcast antennas connected with cable splitters.

The installer will then recommended a customized solution, describing the types of equipment needed, locations for installation, a plan for running cable, and notes on the final appearance and function. If the customer is satisfied with the plan, including the cost of materials and installation, the provider will work up a quote and begin to move forward with the installation.

Step 3 - Moving Forward

Once a final plan is agreed upon, the installation moves forward. There may be lead time depending on any products that need to be ordered and shipped, but the installation is usually straightforward and efficient. The success of the solutions is about correctly positioning each component and effectively connecting the outside antennas with the amplifiers and broadcast antennas. All equipment is FCC-approved, so commercial clients know the products are authorized for installation.

Step 1 - Give us a call

Vehicle booster installations require a lot less design and installation work than a typical stationary installation.  Reach out to one of our sales staff to discuss your vehicle and your requirements. A few questions that we will ask to ensure we get the right system for your needs and the right equipment for the installation are below:

  • What year, make and model is your vehicle?
  • What cellular provider are you currently with?
  • How many people will be in your vehicle at one time and are they all with the same cellular provider?
  • We always recommend a fender mount donor antenna so we do not have to drill holes in your vehicles body.
    • Do you currently have any antennas mounted on the vehicle, what are they for and where are they located?
  • We will discuss your different options for a signal booster and the antenna to best suit your needs.
  • What date range do you have available to bring your vehicle in for installation?

Step 2 - Design a custom quote

We will take all your information and design a custom quote for you within 24 hours and send via email.  This quote will include shop supplies, the booster, cable, antenna and labor for the installation.

Step 2 - Moving forward

Once you accept our quote we will first ensure that all hardware will be in place before booking an installation appointment.  When you show up to your appointment, our professional installation tech will review your vehicle with you to ensure you agree on installation locations for the system.  Typically the installation time will be between 2.5 hours and 4 hours depending on the style of the vehicle.  Once installation is complete we will give you a call to pick up the vehicle and our installer will review the system with you before departing.
