5G E Signal Boosters for Your Car, Home, or Office

5G E Signal Boosters for Your Car, Home, or Office

What is 5G E?

5G E or 5G Evolution delivers up to twice the speeds of standard LTE, per AT&T.

Traditional LTE can download at speeds of 100Mbit/s. Gigabit LTE, also known as LTE-A however has a maximum download speed of 1Gbit/s. That is up to 10 times the performance!

Although all manufacturers are referring to it as LTE Plus or LTE Advanced, AT&T has gone against tradition and have labeled it "5G E" as notation or icon on most new smartphones, since phone software allows carriers to write practically anything they desire beside antenna signal bars.

5G Evolution or 5GE is the term AT&T uses for its gigabit LTE service also commonly known as LTE-A.

5G and 5G-E versus 4G.

5G vs. 4G: According to AT&T that has coined the term, "5G E" is the first step after 4G, on the road to 5G.

Technically it is not 5G, but could more accurately be described as boosted 4G LTE. It is however the first step needed to build out the real 5G due to be released in 2020.

Irrespective of whether it is called 4G LTE advanced or early 5G, one thing is sure and that is that it is fast. Fast enough to do all the things that we do on our smartphones.

Carrier Upload Speed Download Speed
Sprint LTE 1 Mbps 4.8 Mbps
T-Mobile LTE 2.5 Mbps 21 Mbps
AT&T 5G E 21 Mbps 28 Mbps

 

Based on a quick test, AT&T 5G E is 800% faster on uploads and 30% faster on downloads when compared with T-Mobile.

What is a Signal Booster for 5G E?

A 5G E signal booster for a cell phone uses an existing signal including 4G LTE (all carriers) and 5G E (AT&T), and boosts or amplifies it up to 32 times. It then resends the signal into the space within a car, home, or office.

This means that you will get more bars, which in turn leads to:

  1. Consistent Service: Faster downloads, uploads and internet data.
  2. Reliable Reception: Eliminate low quality calls, intermittent service and dropped calls.
  3. Better Coverage: Signal boosters take existing weak signals and amplify them to cover a bigger area.

Features:

  1. Works for all carriers.
  2. Works for 5G E, 4G, LTE service on AT&T.
  3. Easy to install kits.
  4. Works for all phones & cellular devices.
  5. No need to connect to Wi-Fi.
  6. No subscription fees.

For homes, be they in the city with buildings where signal is difficult to get, or in remote rural areas with a cottage or cabin that is off-the-grid, our cell phone signal boosters will do their job. They will expand the AT&T network signal with options ranging from 1 or 2 rooms of up to 2,000 sq. ft. to up to 7,000 sq. ft. per kit depending on outside signal strength and the model.

Signal boosters for vehicles will work for all vehicles including a car, sedan, RV, and even a boat.

Commercial grade AT&T signal boosters for enterprises are designed to cover buildings up to 100K sq. ft. For this option it is however recommended that professional installers be hired or contracted to have the distributed antenna system designed and installed correctly along with the signal amplifier base unit included in each kit. Multiple kits can be used to expand coverage to more than 100,000 sq. feet to millions of square feet.

Below are our top recommendations:

Cellular Amplifier Kits for Vehicles to Boost AT&T 5G E.

Budget:

SureCall N-Range ($199.99)
  • Boosts 4G, LTE, and 5G E (AT&T) Text, Talk, Data and Internet.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Which phones are compatible with 5G E?
  • If your screen displays "5G E", your phone is compatible. Most modern smartphones should be able to pick up 5G E as AT&T rolls out updates.
  • Is there a difference between 5G and 5G E?
  • The real 5G is only likely to launch in 2020. Until it does, carriers like AT&T are building 5G networks and are in the short-term calling their services 5G E. Although it is strictly speaking LTE-advanced, the peak speed is at the low end of what 5G will be capable of.
  • Does an AT&T 5G E Signal Booster improve AT&T hotspot devices?
  • Yes, it does. Any AT&T mobile hotspot router that uses 5G E, 4G, LTE, and 3G will work.
  • What if I use a different carrier later on?
  • All our AT&T signal boosters work for multiple carriers. This makes them compatible with US Cellular, T-Mobile, Verizon, and other local carriers.
  • Will proper 5G make AT&T signal boosters obsolete?
  • No, it won't. 4G and LTE is the mainstay of America’s wireless service and that will not change soon. 4G LTE is only expected to reach its peak between 2030 and 2035, so the current signal boosters will still work for at least a decade.

  • At first, I was thinking about why I would need to buy a signal booster for a 5G phone, then I thought about it further. I see a 5G phone as a high-performance car and a signal booster as a nitrous booster for the car, making it even faster and better. So yes, I could definitely see myself having a booster to make my 5G perform all the better.

  • Thanks for clarification. Since I had noticed 4G LTE change to 5G “E” on by iPhone, I was wondering how my cell phone got converted from 4G to 5G? Apple does not even have 5G phones yet. Bottomline is that there’s no 5G service and no 5G phones yet. These boosters will work fine on my AT&T phone although it says 5GE.
