I’m debating whether or not to get a single user car cell phone booster or a multi-user guide so this article helped a lot. I also learned something new as this is the first time I’ve read about a vehicle cell phone booster that requires professional installation.
There are a lot more cell phone boosters for cars and trucks than I thought there were. There’s also a big change in prices. I remember I looked at cell phone boosters a couple years ago and they were out of my price range. Some of the ones now are affordable and well within what I’d like to pay.
A cellular amplifier is what I want for my car. I’d like one for the house too, but I can’t have both so the car is a priority because I’m in it so much. I’d like to know if there are packages where you can get a cellular amplifier plus installation. They have them for home amplifiers so I’d imagine they do. Anyone know?
This is cool. I like that there are 4G cell phone signal boosters for car. My view on this is that more people are going to get cell phone signal boosters for their cars because they use their cell phones as much in the car as they do at home. I’m always seeing people using their phones whether it’s drivers using GPS, Pandora, etc. or passengers doing their thing while they ride along. I’ve heard that multiple users can slow down signals so a cell phone signal booster for a car will be a big help.
It looks like there are a lot more cell phone signal boosters for vehicles now. This is no shock since more people use their cell phones wherever they go whether it’s passengers or drivers. I have some questions: 1) do cell phone antenna boosters work? 2) what are the best cell phone signal boosters for cars? 3) does AT&T have cell phone boosters for cars? If the answer for the first question is yes, I definitely want to know. I like using my cell phone when I’m driving, but it’s hard to get a good signal when I’m driving through rural areas.
“Do you think we’ll ever see a day when cell phone signal boosters are optional or even factory standard for vehicles?” I don’t think so just because auto manufacturers wouldn’t know what generation booster would be the most marketable. I think you could see a lot of after-market sales of cell phone boosters for vehicles once the public becomes more aware about cell phone boosters. Then again, they’re so easy to install that once people familiarize themselves with the technology, they’ll know they can order it and install it themselves.
With more people doing telecommuting and working out of the office, I think these same people are looking for the best cell phone boosters for their cars. Over time, there’s been enough proof that cell phone boosters for home work, so why shouldn’t ones for cars? With that in mind, people have a lot of car cell phone boosters to check out. Myself, I’d only need one for one phone (mine) as I’m usually the only person in the car. However, some people might want a cell phone booster for multiple phones as they want their family to have strong signals for trips.
That’s a lot of different cell phone signal boosters for your vehicles. I’m starting to think there are just as many ones for vehicles as there are cell phone signal boosters for home. While I haven’t seen any portable cell phone signal boosters, these are still impressive. Do you think we’ll ever see a day when cell phone signal boosters are optional or even factory standard for vehicles?
