Stable cellular communications and high-speed mobile Internet have long become the norm for most people, but companies providing such services do not always provide them with decent quality. It often happens that outside the city during phone calls there are all sorts of interference, the pages start to load rather slowly. You can ensure the stability of the connection with the help of special equipment, which is called a signal amplifier for cellular communications and the Internet.

This is a fairly new technique that appeared on store shelves not so long ago, so few people can correctly navigate its operational characteristics. If you have a need for such a device, then our review of the best cellular and Internet signal boosters is especially for you. But before proceeding to a direct analysis of the useful qualities of the models selected for review, let’s first understand what they are and what properties are most important for specific conditions of product use.

What factors are important when buying a signal amplifier?

In itself, the quality of cellular communication directly depends on a number of factors. These include the power of the operator’s base station (the strongest of them are able to provide a stable connection within a radius of about 100 km), in addition, the terrain plays an important role, as well as various obstacles that are in the signal path — trees, buildings, poles and so on. The more subscribers will be served by one station, the weaker the channel bandwidth will be, which will also affect the stability of the connection.

Amplifiers or repeaters can be single-band and multi-band. The first ones will not cost too much, but at the same time they are able to support only one signal or data transmission format, the second type costs much more, but can support up to 3 different bands used by mobile operators. This product is universal, because it is designed to amplify both the signal of the communication itself and data transmission.

How to choose and install a repeater

Be sure to pay attention to such a parameter as power when choosing a device. It affects the coverage radius, for example, for a room with an area of ​​​​about 50 sq.m. a product with an indicator of the order of 10 mW will be quite enough. As a rule, the repeater is equipped with two toggle switches designed to adjust the power of the outgoing and incoming signal. In other words, it regulates the receiving and transmitting antennas. Most users always set the outgoing signal to the maximum, and adjust the incoming signal depending on its intensity. It should not be made too strong, as this will lead to congestion of the station itself.

On sale you can find products designed to enhance only the Internet in 3G format. This is a rather convenient design, which even an inexperienced user can figure out, besides, models are often equipped with a Wi-Fi module. The type of antenna is also important — they can be panel (another name is sector), directional or ring (they are also collecting). Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages, which we will reveal in more detail in the process of reviewing the models.

When choosing signal amplifiers to include in our review, we took into account all the points mentioned above, as well as relied on user and professional reviews, and did not lose sight of value for money. For each model, we tried to collect the maximum amount of information so that you can appreciate all its capabilities.

The coverage area can reach 200 sq.m. The design is capable of working with cellular communications and the Internet at 3G speed in the UMTS-900 standard, supports the signals of the most common operators in the country — MTS, Megafon and Beeline. The repeater is designed for use in office environments, apartments, country houses, semi-basement and basement premises. Not too high requirements are imposed on the installation — the unit is placed in a dry, heated room. The kit includes the repeater itself, antenna mount, adapter for connecting to the mains, external and internal antennas, as well as a 10 m cable.

The device is installed as follows: the external antenna is placed on the facade of the building or rises to the roof and is fixed there, it is directed so that it is oriented to the nearest base station. The cable is laid in the room so that it does not form rings. When all operations are done, it is connected to the amplifier itself, an internal antenna is installed. Only then can power be supplied to the device. It is desirable that the spread of the distance between the receiving and transmitting antennas be maximum, otherwise the device may not work very correctly.


  • Quite democratic cost;
  • Works with multiple ranges of signals;
  • Significantly improves the performance of both the cellular communication itself and the Internet.


  • It is necessary to place the antennas at a considerable distance from each other, which is not always technically possible.

This is a very compact design of the GSM standard, which is designed to stabilize the cellular signal and enhance mobile Internet reception. Excellent performance in rural and rough terrain. The product is a receiver and transmitter of the GSM 900 format, it receives a signal from the nearest base station through an external antenna. Its amplification is performed automatically, then it is output to an indoor antenna and distributed to various types of mobile devices — mobile phones, tablets, and so on. The power of the device is not too large, but it is quite enough to cover an area with a radius of about 20 sq.m. Due to this equipment, it is possible to ensure stable and high-quality communication and packet data transmission even in the absence of a network — in the so-called «blind» zones, for example, in dungeons, in basements, in low-lying areas of the area. Thanks to him, the signal passes through thick concrete and brick walls.

The installation of the device is quite simple, it does not require any special skills and abilities from the user. The kit comes with a special adapter that allows you to connect the device to the car’s on-board electrical network. In this case, along with the amplifier, there is a set of car antennas that can be placed around the perimeter of the vehicle in various directions, and they will not affect the quality of the road view at all. The device resists low temperatures well and is able to work even in conditions of very high humidity — up to 95%.


  • Compactness;
  • autonomy;
  • Can be connected to a car battery through the cigarette lighter;

An improved version of the previous model from this manufacturer. Ideally shows itself when working with a signal of the GSM 900 format. In the process of operation, it does not create sound and other radiation that could affect the state of human health. Provides a confident and stable signal indoors, the calculated coverage is approximately 300 meters in radius. This device is manufactured in South Korea, which already speaks of the high quality of production. The model has a special protective module that protects it from various extraneous signals. This is expressed in the following: if a so-called «spurious» signal arrives at the receiver, then it is isolated from the cellular signal and is significantly attenuated or completely turned off at the output, and when transmitted to the antenna, it is completely leveled. The design can start a cycle of attenuation and amplification of the supply of basic data, after which the parasitic pulse often disappears on its own.

If necessary, the amplifier power can simply be turned off. This is useful in areas with unstable mobile phone coverage. If it is getting better, then the device can turn off on its own. Gain control is carried out in both directions. During the operation of this model, streaming data is exchanged with a mobile device, so the design works not only for fast loading, but also for a stable response. The repeater must operate at an ambient temperature of +5 to +50 degrees. The length of the cable going to the internal antenna is 5 meters, which is quite enough so that the signals do not overlap.


  • Automatic shutdown system if necessary;
  • There is no need to spread the receiving and transmitting antennas over a considerable distance;
  • Suppression of extraneous signals is provided;
  • Works for both receiving and transmitting.


  • It is difficult to find service centers for the maintenance and repair of this equipment.
