" ...  This product boosted my signal from 1x to full bars and also booster my data by at least 3 times.  ...  "

" ...  When I read about the Cel-fi product, I was hopeful it would be better, based on its higher boost strength and selective boosting. ... With the Wilson product in the past, I had to be within 5-10 feet of the inside antenna to receive signal. ... Once I got the Cel-Fi set up, I was able to receive near “full” signal over 25% of my house, and 1-3 bars over the remainder, with only one inside antenna! ... I feel like I could have even better signal with a taller antenna. ... However, I’m sure this would work fine for most people with a decent signal outside. ... If you have poor outside signal, and If you can afford it, I recommend it.  ...  "

It seems to work just fine, with the indoor antenna in an adjacent room. ... Btw, when you are updating the unit with your settings, be sure to do that in a place where there is a good signal . ... I actually had to drive a couple of miles, where I am getting great signal .  ...  "
