    Has anyone had experience using a powered signal booster in an office setting? I work for one of the big 3 and where Im moving to, no signal. Im on the opposite network (Verizon) than they are. I dont think I will have the opportunity to put the antenna outside either, just on top of my overhead cabinet. Also, what brands are people using and/or what website.

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    PS. I sent a note about this to the facilities manager and all I got back was an "lol". Quite professional, huh.

    The problem with a signal booster/repeater is that you need a signal in the first place to use them. The best ones would be those that you place outside.

    I have weak signal in my area at work. So it isn't worth going with any of these boosters? What about this antenna?

    Signal repeaters/amplifiers usually require somewhat a strong signal outside the building, in order to carry the signal inside through a repeater/amplifier.

    Well, where Im sitting, no signal, but if I walk over to the windows, about 200 yards away, I get a signal, 1 bar. I did ask my boss about running a cable with antenna and he said it was ok. So Im thinking I will get a signal. Now that being said, what is the best booster for the buck? I will be trying to supply a signal to 2 phones, the person next to me is in the same boat. [a sinking one...] Or... is there a better device or procedure for acquiring a signal?? All jokes welcome, but facts would be nice too.

    Thanks, I'm considering buying it for my house. My signal is usually fine as long as I'm around a window, but if I get in the middle of the house away from windows, then I tend to drop calls. This has only started recently (within the last month or so) and was never really a problem before...although my signal stregnth has always been about the same.

    wirelessextenders from frys works but you have to be VERY careful about antenna placement. Otherwise the unit wigs out.
