The networks of mobile operators are constantly expanding their coverage areas, more and more new base stations with towers are being launched. However, there are still many places where the signal strength is insufficient for a normal and stable Internet, and in some places even simple voice communication is interrupted. To solve this problem, there are special devices – signal amplifiers for cellular communications and the Internet. The Expertology team brings you a special rating with reviews of the best, according to our experts, devices and kits for providing stable and high-quality mobile communications where the pure signal is too weak and unstable.

How to choose a cellular and Internet signal booster

To begin with, let’s figure it out, and in what general situations and circumstances you may need a signal amplifier, what tasks such devices can handle in general, what “pitfalls” can be in installation and operation, well, and most importantly – what should be guided when choosing an amplifier cell phone and internet signal.

So, the main task of the amplifier – provide a reliable signal in those places where there may be interruptions with its stability and power. In cities, the cause of an unstable signal can be congestion at repeater stations, outside the city – dead zones due to terrain features and, by definition, a lower density of operator towers, worse coverage, other prioritization (in favor of voice, to the detriment of the Internet, for example) and other.

As of 2019, mobile operators operating in the Russian market use six frequency bands: 450, 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Within these figures, all generations of cellular communication standards that are relevant today – 2G, 3G, UMTS, 4G, LTE and all their possible variations are covered. So, 2G provides only voice communication and uses the frequencies 900 and 1800 MHz; 3G is already “two-in-one” – both voice and Internet at frequencies of 900 and 2100 MHz; 4G in the basic version is designed only for the transmission of ultra-high-speed Internet at frequencies of 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz. However, today the situation in Russia is different – LTE operates at a frequency of 900 MHz, and most operators have already acquired permissions to use the frequency of 2100 MHz. Since the beginning of 2019, in addition to the basic LTE, the VoLTE service has been added – voice data transmission via the 4G packet network inclusive (switching between 4G and 2G / 3G occurs on the fly, imperceptibly to the user).

Knowing all these points is important when choosing the most suitable model or kit for amplifying a cellular signal and / or Internet. When buying a cellular and Internet signal booster, you should clearly understand what exactly you are going to amplify – voice communication, 4G broadband Internet, or something else. In our rating, different kits will be presented, each of which copes better with some task, and worse with some.

Outside of big cities, in places with low population density, it is applied mostly frequency 900MHz – She is the most “long-range”. In big cities, they mostly use GSM1800, 3G, and also LTE.

When it comes to strengthening the signal of cellular communications and the Internet in large warehouse and office premises within the city, experts recommend using repeaters at a frequency of 2100 and 1800 MHz. Why exactly them is a separate topic, but such a recommendation is quite justified. In general, the general rule applies here – the smartphone will always try to connect to the highest of the frequencies that are available to it in the current location. Therefore, when choosing an amplifier, you should focus on the upper operating frequencies. If the task is to cover the entire range of capabilities of a cellular operator in a certain area or room, there are multi-band combined devices for this.

One of the key features of the kit equipment for amplifying a cellular signal and the Internet is the output power – it determines the area that the repeater is able to cover with an already amplified signal. So, for example, an amplifier with an output power of 100mW is able to provide coverage with a stable and high-quality signal of 200-300 kV. meters of area. With a power of 250-300mW, the local coverage area will already be 500-1000 sq. meters – the best option for country houses with large plots. It is reasonable to buy an amplifier with a small margin of power, but without “kinks”. An excessively powerful amplifier under certain conditions can in itself cause interference at the base station of a cellular operator. Such an object will be instantly “calculated” by the relevant services, the owner will be fined, and the equipment will be confiscated in the worst case, and at best simply banned for further use.

Another visual and indicative characteristic of the amplifier – gain. It is measured in decibels (dB) and indicates how much the signal will rise at the output relative to the input.

And one more important point. The signal amplifier amplifies this same signal by a documentary value only under ideal conditions and using only one channel. In fact, interference, noise, interference and conversations of several subscribers at the same time within the local coverage area are inevitable. Each of these factors, to one degree or another, will reduce the effect of amplifying the signal of cellular communications and the Internet for each individual user.

Finally, the package. Signal amplifiers are most often sold in the form of complete kits. Each such kit ideally includes the repeater itself, connecting cables, various accessories and two antennas – a large external (receiving) and a compact internal (transmitting). But a variety of variations of this configuration are possible, depending on the specific model.

The best single and dual band cell phone and internet signal boosters

In the first nomination of the rating, we will consider rather highly specialized amplifiers that operate only at one or two specific frequencies or standards. Here we will consider two examples of such devices, each of which is available in many variants for each frequency, but individually can serve only one or two within two communication standards.

Everstream ES1800P

Rating: 4.9

Everstream ES1800P

The nomination is opened by the Everstream brand repeater, a domestic brand owned by Sigma Service. The manufacturer has been operating in the telecommunications market since 2007, and since then it has grown from a small installation company into a major integrator in the field of cellular communications.

This particular amplifier operates within the GSM1800/LTE1800 frequencies and standards. However, this is only a representative of a whole series, and for each frequency the company releases a separate device of exactly the same form factor and configuration. The difference is only in the operating frequency and, accordingly, in the nomenclature. We take ES1800P as a good example.

So, this model is a repeater with an operating frequency of 1800 MHz, capable of operating at this frequency in GSM and LTE networks. The outgoing signal power is 100mW, which allows coverage up to 300 sq. meters of area.

The operating frequency band is within 75 MHz. In this case, this means that in the direction of the station-telephone data exchange takes place in the frequency range 1805-1880 MHz, and in the opposite direction – in the range 1710-1785 MHz.

The repeater gain is 65dB for the station-telephone direction and 60dB for the reverse. At the same time, the maximum outgoing power, which is regulated by internal automation, is 19 and 20 dBm, respectively. Permissible gain unevenness in the operating band is +/-3dB.

The dimensions of the device are 230x130x34mm, weight – 1.2kg. To work, he needs a power supply of 12V, 2A. In operation, it consumes no more than 10W of electrical power.

This series is recommended for equipping offices in the basement, country houses, in specific cases – for change houses at remote construction sites. The device is equipped with a fairly informative LCD display, a targeting scale for the base station, and attenuators (devices for reducing EM oscillations). Outgoing power can be adjusted manually.

Advantages

  • reliability and continuity;

  • the ability to manually adjust the outgoing power;

  • stable outgoing signal;

  • accessibility in installation and operation;

  • LCD screen.

Flaws

  • no significant shortcomings were noted.

VEGATEL VT-1800/3G

Rating: 4.8

VEGATEL VT-1800/3G

The second nominee of this selection of our rating is the product of the domestic plant “Moscow Microwaves” – a dual-band signal amplifier for cellular communications and the Internet VEGATEL VT-1800 / 3G.

This is a basic household repeater designed to amplify and stabilize the signal of cellular communications and the Internet of 2G, 3G and 4G generations in two operating bands – 1800 and 2100 MHz. Such frequency coverage allows solving most of the problems with voice communication and the Internet that arise within the city.

To be precise, the device works in three directions – GSM-1800, LTE-1800 and UMTS-2100. The latter is the main one for 3G networks in the Russian Federation. UMTS-2100 provides both voice telephony and internet. GSM-1800 is used by operators where the “long-range” frequency of 900 MHz is unavailable or overloaded. The same will apply to new operators, for example, the provider Tele2, which entered the domestic market quite late, uses only the 1800 MHz frequency to provide 2G communications. As for LTE-1800, this standard is quite often used by Russian mobile operators to provide 4G communications. The main and most used frequency for LTE is still 2600 MHz, but LTE-1800 is quite often used in certain cities and even regions of Russia.

The gain in this model is 65 and 60dB in the directions station-telephone and telephone-station, respectively. Both automatic and manual gain control are provided. Built-in automatic protection against failure due to overload. For manual adjustment, a mechanical switch on the front panel is used – manual adjustment up to 15 dB in 5 dB steps is allowed. Incoming and outgoing signals are configured independently of each other.

In conclusion, a few words about the physical characteristics of the device. Repeater dimensions – 205x175x45mm, weight – 0.84kg. Made in a durable metal case in a natural silver hue. Special holes on the case allow you to mount the repeater on the wall. In operation, it consumes 20W of electrical power. The level of protection against the influence of external factors corresponds to IP40.

Depending on the point of sale, you can buy both the repeater itself separately, and the whole set with outdoor and indoor antennas, cable and additional accessories. Individual distributors allow you to select a complete set at the discretion of the buyer.

Advantages

  • reliability and continuity;

  • ease of installation and operation;

  • automatic and manual gain control;

  • protection from external adverse factors;

  • metal case.

Flaws

  • not the most outstanding amplification power.

PicoCell 1800 SXL

Rating: 4.7

PicoCell 1800 SXL

The third repeater in the nomination of the best cellular and Internet signal amplifiers according to Expertology is another example of high-quality products from the Moscow Microwaves plant, only of a different brand – PicoCell. This is the most powerful amplifier in this group.

This device is noticeably more massive than the previous versions – dimensions are 240x165x80mm and weighs 1.7kg. It is enclosed in a metal case without any special design frills. On the front panel is a black and white LCD screen.

Main technical characteristics: power – 320mW; gain factor – 80dB for the incoming signal and 75dB for the outgoing; operating frequency – 1800 MHz; cellular communication standards – 2G DCS1800/4G LTE1800; auto gain control; power consumption – up to 30W; protection against the influence of external factors – IP40; input impedance – 50 Ohm; noise factor at maximum gain – no more than 6dB;

With this configuration, the amplifier is capable of providing coverage in the thousands or even tens of thousands of square meters. Ultimately, the actual coverage area will depend on a number of factors. These are the nature of the incoming signal (how much it can be fully amplified), the quality and characteristics of the antennas, the length of the cable (the longer, the greater the loss), the specifics of the premises and the materials of the walls / partitions. The location is also important. So, in the conditions of the city, the radius of the coverage area can be minimal – from 200 meters; at the same time outside the city in open spaces, the repeater may well broadcast an amplified signal for 1 or even 2 kilometers.

One of the key advantages of this cellular and Internet amplifier is the presence of effectively integrated protection of the operators’ network from interference generated by the amplifier itself. Being extremely powerful, the repeater does not interfere with nearby base stations of cellular operators. Also a big plus is automatic power control – the repeater changes power when the incoming signal changes.

This model is recommended for wide use – in offices, country houses, small shopping centers, etc. The manufacturer provides an official 12-month warranty.

Advantages

  • record power;

  • reliability and continuity;

  • automatic power adjustment;

  • effective protection against outgoing interference that can affect the operation of base stations of cellular operators.

Flaws

  • some users do not like the clumsy design (a dubious flaw).
