I like the in home boosters, but it assumes you have high speed internet. Not everyone does. I have installed dozens of in home/business boosters. Sometimes they are the best answer. The boosters are not brand specific, so if you want to change carriers or a friend comes over, they have coverage too. Just remember, steel roofing cuts your signal. Sometimes hiring a professional really is worth it. I never had any booster returned I installed. I had three returned because they would not follow directions or the poor antennas included were not up to the job. Yes, antennas are critical and you get what you pay for. Why pay $400-500 for a phone and expect a booster to increase your signal if it only costs $200? It won't, so spend some money on a good unit. Budget $500-800. You can move this booster to your RV for more range also.
