Great Product. I live in a very weak signal area. My Verizon phone would only work while next to a window. The best signal I could get was -93dbm but with this product installed I'm getting -75dbm give or take with my phone on my desk. Highly recommended.

The product was not at all hard to install, and I did get some improvement in the signal - a Blackberry (using Sprint) improved the most, the AT&T iPhone almost as good, and the Verizon Android had the least improvement. But you need to stay pretty close to the indoor antennae so your cell essentially becomes a corded landline phone. But since I used to have to walk a 1/4 mile up the road to use my phone, it is a reasonable compromise.

Awesome Product! I live in a rural area and had to go outside in order to make calls and would need to place my phone in a window to send or receive texts. I can now sit in my living room and do either, I can also use my High Speed internet indoors now! It has allowed me to cancel my home phone service so the SignalBoost will pay for itself in just a few months! Just follow the included directions and I feel certain you will be happy with the Wilson SignalBoost. I would encourage the signal site check. By doing this I was able to find the perfect spot to mount the external antenna.

I purchased this kit to get better reception with my Sprint wireless internet card. My previous signal strength was -95db to -105db. I would occasionally get knocked off of the internet and have to reconnect. When I first connected the repeater, I was getting -65db to -75db. Now after about two weeks my signal strength has dropped to -75db t0 -85db which is still an improvement, but not the 55db improvement that is claimed. I have not been knocked off of the internet with the repeater and I also can now use my cell phone in the house instead of going outside. This kit is definitely an improvement. I used a twenty foot length of 3/4" pipe to mount the outside antennae which is the suggested best way to mount the outside antennae. The alternate outside mounting methods may not get the same results.
We're glad it's working out for you! Just to clarify, the 55db you are referring to is the "gain" of the amplifier - it refers to how powerful the amplifier is with regards to how large of an area it can rebroadcast signal to, NOT the amount of improvement you're going to see on your devices. The signal improvement users will see depends on the signal situation at the location (how weak the signal is to begin with, where the tower is, what's in between you and the tower, etc).

I went from very unreliable 3G service to steady 3G service. I would recommend it for anyone in the fringe areas. Ron

Graet item. I am in a strickly 1X area 19 miles on the back of the nearest tower. I was getting 1 bar some of the time. When I hooked up the SignalBoost DT I went up to 4 full bars. Now that all of the leaves are out I am getting 3 bars and sometimes 4 bars. No more dropped calls. Thank You.

I live way out in the country in rural Arkansas. I went from no bars to 4 bars of service in my whole house. I am now even able to game using my Mi-Fi.
Great product fast delivery!

Worked very, very well in my parents home. Prior to installing, they would have to go outside their home to make cell phone calls. Used www.antennasearch.com to find the nearest VZW cell tower. Now they can make clear calls from their couch. Only downside is the broadcast area doesn't cover more than a couple of rooms in the house.
