SOHO Phone Booster Case Study: Residence & Business in North Houston TX

SOHO 6,000 ft.² Residence & Business in North Houston, Texas with NO 4G coverage

The home-office concerned was being used by the owners as a combination small-office home-office (SOHO) so it was affecting their business adversely.

Site Description

In North Houston, Texas, the owners of a 6,000 square feet home required 4G cellular signal inside the home or SOHO which as usually referred to, as the smallest of small businesses. It is a privately owned and operated business or individuals who are self-employed. Both partners frequently worked within the home that is beautiful and covered with lots of greenery outside. A Wilson Pro 70 Plus phone booster system was successfully installed in the home which resulted in fast, reliable 4G LTE signal reception within the building.

Problems with Cellular Connectivity

As both partners were work-at-home entrepreneurs, it was imperative that they were able to achieve reliable, quality 4G cellphone signal for voice and data connectivity in their home. They urgently required quality voice network and 4G top speeds. Again, because of the building materials used on their home, which included Radiant Barrier insulation encompassing the entire building, and a Stucco wall, the homeowners were unable to achieve 4G coverage throughout their home. Adding to this problem for wireless connectivity, it is located in an older neighborhood with lots of large trees and greenery that dampens mobile reception inside throughout the year.

Because Radiant Barriers are extremely reflective, they are typically used to redirect radiant heat. In this home, the Barrier was designed to ensure solar heat was kept outside the home, so it had been installed on the Stucco wall. Radiant Barriers are commonplace in warm climates like American southern climates. However, combining a Radiant Barrier with a Stucco wall does not just block solar heat - Unfortunately, it also effectively prevents cellular signal from entering a building. With radio waves being unable to penetrate the building, the result was that this 6000 sq. ft. home was unable to achieve any 4G coverage.

Phone Booster Installation Solution

The business owners were too busy with their business and had better things to do than spend the time and effort to deal with a carefully planned installation. Therefore, they requested our help to get it done quickly and effectively for them. Our RF technicians carried out a detailed site survey across the home, with signal readings taken from both inside and outside the home to determine which cellular coverage amplifier we should recommend in this particular situation. The technicians also charted the cable routes, in addition to locating the ideal place to install the new phone booster.

Because of the building materials used, the size of the home, and other pertinent factors identified during the comprehensive site survey, it was proposed that a Wilson Pro 70 Plus with additional three inside antennas meaning total four indoor antennas be installed. The reason a Wilson Pro 70 Plus was chosen is because it has the ability to operate in larger homes, whilst achieving strong external cellular signals without damaging or overloading the amplifier unit. In addition, the WilsonPro 70 Plus phone booster simultaneously supports multiple smartphones on multiple cell carrier networks incl. AT&T Wireless, Verizon, T-Mobile, and others.

Installation of the Wilson Pro 70 Plus Phone Booster

As soon as antennas and cable routes had been identified, installation of the Wilson amplifier was completed. The complete installation process was conducted in such a manner as to ensure that the base signal boosting amplifier unit and its peripheral accessories were professionally installed in safe locations.

Post-Installation, Phone Booster Showed Classic Results

Following installation process of the phone booster system, the testing was carried out throughout the home. As expected, the homeowners immediately began receiving strong and reliable 2 to 3 strong bars of 4G LTE signal on all devices within entire building. Improved 4G signal with enhanced data and voice was exactly what the owners were hoping for, and now they could both conduct their business and reliably connect to the outer world from inside their own home.

  • Don’t know how anyone could live in Texas. It just seems so hot and desolate (no offense to Texans, particularly those who are well-armed). When you add in the problems with cell service for distant areas, I just don’t understand the appeal. I suppose if you like it you have options like this study show with the mobile signal booster.

  • From what I remember in school, Texas is the second biggest state in the United States so I can see where they need more cell phone towers than usual in order to provide signals to everyone in the state. However, I keep reading these case studies on residences and businesses that need phone boosters and they mostly seem to be in Texas. Apparently, the Lone Star State needs to build more cell phone towers. Until they do, it sounds like people will have to rely on phone boosters to help narrow the gap.
