What is the Difference Between a Commercial Signal Booster and a Signal Booster for Small Business?
Primarily features and power. Commercial signal boosters are designed to cover large buildings and whole complexes and plants, while the most powerful small business booster can cover a few floors of a building or a relatively large warehouse.
Commercial signal boosters are more often used in tandem with one another to cover whole buildings.
How Much Does a Complete Installation Cost?
The cost of an installation varies depending on the size of the installation, the number of amplifiers used, and the required coverage desired. To give a general idea, covering between 5,000-25,000 sq ft of commercial space could cost anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 in equipment alone. If you have a facility larger than 25,000 sq ft, you’ll want it professionally installed, and we provide that service for less than $1 per sq ft.
Do You Install in My Area?
Yes, we install everywhere in the 48 contiguous United States, as well as Alaska and Canada.
What Variables Determine a Cell Phone Booster’s Performance?
There are five main variables that determine a booster’s performance:
- Quality of outside signal
- Maximum gain of the signal booster
- Uplink and downlink power of the signal booster
- Maximum gain of attached antennas
- Quality of cables used in setup
Our experts take these factors into consideration when recommending, designing, and installing commercial signal booster systems.
Picking the Best Amplifier for Your Enterprise
Knowing the strength of your outside signal can save a lot of time and money when picking an amplifier. If you have a strong outside signal, you will be able to get more out of a signal booster system. If you have weak outside signal, you will want to prioritize system power to cover as much area as you can.

What Causes Dropped Calls and Bad Cell Reception?
There are three main variables that cause dropped calls and bad cell reception in your business.
The first is distance from a cell tower. The way to solve this is a more powerful antenna, such as an LPDA antenna, as well as a powerful booster.
The second is building material. With this, you may find yourself with strong signal outside, yet unusable signal inside. If this situation applies, you can make great use of a mid-power signal booster.
Finally, terrain. This can be tricky, but it usually means you have to hunt for good signal somewhere nearby. Usually there are pockets of usable signal in areas where terrain or trees cause signal issues. The trick is finding them, figuring out their strength, and making use of that knowledge to place your outside antenna and amplifier in the best possible location.
