What Does an AT&T Cell Booster Do?

AT&T Cell Booster can automatically connect to any AT&T device. Once connected, these devices give a bigger bump to signal strength. If you're on the edge of a network, Cell Booster’s 3,000 square feet and Cell Booster Pro’s 15,000 square feet coverage make it an ideal fit for apartments, big homes, and small offices. The actual coverage, however, may be limited due to factors, like building materials, connected device capability, and other obstructions.  

How Does AT&T Cell Booster Work?

AT&T Cell Booster collects and enhances the signal from outside cell towers and transmits the boosted cell phone signal for use by your mobile phone. This technology includes the following components:

  1. The outside antenna: It is usually mounted on the roof of your home to catch the signal from nearby cell towers and pull it inside the cell booster.
  2. The booster: It receives and amplifies the signal, and then broadcasts the enhanced signal to an inside antenna.
  3. The inside antenna: It sends the amplified signal for use by your cellular-enabled devices, such as mobile phones.
