How to Improve Your Mobile Coverage with a HiBoost Signal Booster
HiBoost Signal Booster
Mobile phones are one of the most useful devices available. They let us instantly communicate, quickly access the internet, and feature all kinds of fun and useful applications.
However, using your mobile phone with a poor signal is incredibly frustrating, limiting the phone’s ability to make calls, receive calls, and use mobile internet data. Not only is this frustrating, but also very difficult to fix, especially if you receive a poor signal at home.
Poor mobile coverage is often an issue for those living in rural areas of the UK. With fewer mobile phone masts in these areas, signals tend to be much poorer compared to built-up locations throughout the nation.
Even then, there are multiple obstacles (namely buildings and structures) that block and slow signals in busy areas, meaning living near a mobile phone mast doesn’t guarantee a strong signal.
One of the best ways around poor mobile coverage is to invest in a signal booster. These devices are designed to significantly improve mobile signals so that you can use your mobile phone as it was intended.
Using a HiBoost Signal Booster
HiBoost are one of the top names in the mobile phone signal booster market. Their signal booster devices are generally viewed as the best available, significantly improving the mobile phone signals on all major UK networks.
They have a mobile signal booster for all situations, be a small flat in a busy town or city to rural cottages lacking decent coverage. Their mobile boosters, often called a mobile repeater, are available in various price ranges and come with different features to suit all needs.
So, if you are looking to improve your mobile phone coverage a HiBoost signal booster is a device well worth investing in.
Let’s see how you can usea HiBoost signal booster to improve mobile coverage anywhere in the UK!
Check Your Signal Strength
To buy the right mobile phone signal booster from HiBoost you want to know the current signal strength you are dealing with. The poorer your coverage the better the signal booster needs to be, so bear this in mind and try working out what your average signal strength is.
Outside signals are typically categorised as being weak, medium, and strong, you’ll want to establish what category your signal is in to make sure you get a signal booster with enough power and coverage to reach it.
While it’s possible to determine this by checking the current bars on your phone signal, this measurement is often inaccurate, so instead you should check it using a featured called field test mode.
The signal strength is measured in decibels (dB) in field test mode. Weak will feature no measurement because the signal is so poor or will be around -90 to -110dB and lower. So, if your phone measures anything below -110dB (e.g. -120, -130, -140 and so on) then you’ll need a good strength signal booster from HiBoost.
HiBoost signal boosters work best when there is a decent outside signal to amplify. You should get a much better signal outside from your home, so check both indoors and outdoors to get a better idea of the device you need. 2-3 bars outside your house is typically enough for a home signal booster from HiBoost to significantly improve the indoor signal.
Knowing Your Mobile Network
This is a straight-forward process as your phone displays the information at the top bar. Check to see whether it is 2G,3G, or 4G network coverage your phone uses, as you need a compatible signal booster.
You also need to know your mobile network provider to ensure you a buy a HiBoost signal booster that also operates on this frequency band. Most HiBoost signal booster devices are compatible with all major UK networks anyway, but you should know what they are because they operate their 4G and 3G channels on different frequencies, meaning you need to buy a suitable one.
It may sound complex but you basically need to know whether your phone uses 3G or 4G and what network you are with, which should be obvious.
Choosing Suitable Coverage
The coverage is one of the most things to consider when using a mobile booster as it determines the overall reach of the improved signal. You may benefit from a smaller or lager coverage area depending on your requirements.
For instance, those living in a relatively small home probably don’t need to much in the way of coverage, with between 100 and 500sqm typically providing enough coverage for most small to medium sized homes and office spaces.
Those living in larger spaces or looking to install a mobile signal booster inside of a large commercial property should look for a wider coverage area. HiBoost has signal boosters with coverages as high as 5,000sqm, although that’s probably unnecessarily large for most homes.
Coverages are also available in 1,000, 2,000, and 3,000sqm, so consider how large an area you need the mobile coverage to improve in. While these may seem like too much initially, they don’t cost much more than smaller coverage devices and offer plenty of additional coverage, which could further improve the signal in many instances.
Calling the Experts
Now, all the above information may seem confusing, so if you are unsure of anything then don’t be afraid to call an expert. Mobile Repeater UK sell HiBoost signal boosters and other mobile booster devices and they are more than happy to recommend products based on your requirements.
We will be able to talk you through how to work out your current signal and what device will improve it most – make sure you tell them you’re in the market for a HiBoost product of course!
Installing the Signal Booster
Installing the mobile phone signal booster may be the easiest part! Everything you need is included in the kit and you only need a few basic tools.
The external antenna is attached to an outside wall or roof, preferably in a spot where the mobile signal is strongest! This then connects to an indoor antenna that should be fitted in a space inside where it will reach as much of the house as possible.
Connect these two devices and then connect the indoor antenna to the amplifier device. Turn it on and let the device automatically setup and you are good to go! Any adjustments needed are done through the amplifier, which can be used to control different settings and check on the mobile signal booster’s performance.
