What is a mobile phone signal booster?
With all of the different types of mobile and internet devices and accessories on the market, it is so easy to get overwhelmed and confused about what a mobile phone signal booster actually is.
But the concept of a booster for mobile phone is relatively easy to understand – we promise! So let us take a moment to run you through how it works.
So let’s say you have a mobile phone contract with Vodafone. They are your major mobile carrier and you rely on them to erect mobile towers and construct networking equipment around the country to provide you with as strong a signal as possible around as much of the country as possible.
However and often despite these major mobile carrier’s best efforts, there are large portions of Australia that still only experience weak coverage, if any coverage at all.
So to combat this, a mobile phone signal booster is designed to receive the signal that is floating around in the air through its outdoor antenna and to transmit it to its internal booster, which runs on its own power supply in your home, office, boat e.t.c. The wiring inside the internal booster for mobile phone strengthens the signal that has been received from the airwaves outside, sends it to an internal antenna, adjusts to the same frequency as the original signal and re-transmits it with greater power and strength to the end receiver!
How mobile signal boosters work?
So let’s break down how the mobile phone booster signal works into some simple points:
- The mobile phone booster’s extremely sensitive outdoor antenna picks up signals in the air that are so weak that your mobile phone cannot detect them (largely due to the size of the antenna of the booster in comparison to the much smaller antenna inside a mobile phone).
- The weak signal is passed from the outdoor antenna to the internal booster through the shortest possible guaranteed route – the cable between the antenna and the booster that you would have plugged in!
- The booster strengthens the weak signal by matching it to the strength of the frequency from the receiver’s signal, using the external power that you plugged your internal booster into when you installed it!
- The internal booster then transmits this new, super-charged signal to the internal antenna.
The internal antenna then transmits that same strength signal out to the whole area that it covers, i.e. your office, car, farm e.t.c.
Businesses benefit greatly from mobile signal boosters and use them in their warehouses, for example, as one of our clients – Auto Covers.

Are mobile signal boosters safe?
There is a great deal of scare-mongering in Australia about the long term effects on a person’s health, after extensive exposure to a network tower or a mobile phone or telecommunications device. So why would you ever install another piece of equipment into your car or into your home that is an even greater hazard?
Well we are here to assure you that our mobile phone signal boosters are not a health hazard to you or to your family at all. Despite the conflicting opinions about the damaging effect of major pieces of networking equipment on a person’s health, here are a few of the reasons why your mobile phone signal booster does not present the same problem:
- The booster is low power and services a limited number of users. It is no way generates the same amount of residual power or emits the same number of signals as a large mobile tower
- Whilst mobile phones are usually carried or used close to the body, a mobile phone signal booster remains in one part of your office or boat and you do not need to come in direct contact with it on ongoing bases.
- Whilst your mobile phone signal booster is responsible for increasing the strength of the signals coming to and from where you are, there is no evidence to support the fact that the waves emitted by them are strong enough to cause any harm.
- Mobile phone boosters are currently being used in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra with no reports of incidents.
A Booster for Everyone
Most people wonder, which booster is the best fit for me? Well, to answer that, you need to ask yourself this, where is my signal poor and unsteady? Is it in your house or maybe in your car as you move about? Maybe you are a seaman and you can’t quite get a good signal when out at sea. Have no worry though, each one is well covered. We have boosters that suit your every need. Be it a boat, office, apartment or car, we have boosters that are specifically tailored towards each use.
When we say we have a booster for everyone, we actually do. Our boosters are capable of boosting signals of the major network providers in Australia. Be it Vodafone, Optus or OtherProviders, our boosters will boost all signals. It is a common misconception that each network provider will require its own booster. However, that could not be further from the truth. Our signal boosters are indiscriminate and you just need to get one that suits all. During purchase, make sure you get one that is compatible with your network provider.
Powerful vs Standard Kit
During checkout, you will have to choose between a standard kit and a powerful kit. A powerful kit is way stronger than the standard kit. This choice entirely on how deep your signal woes stretch. First, you will have to do a small test. Check how many bars you get on your phone. If you have two or three, then the standard kit should be able to cater to that. If you get 1 bar it is time to bring out the big guns. The powerful signal booster should be able to bring the signal back to life and your phone will get full bars just like that! More so, you should check to see how big the coverage ought to be. It goes without saying, if you intend to use the booster in a small space like your apartment, a standard kit will suffice. However, if you need to cover a larger area, you should consider getting a more powerful kit.
Voice or Data?
Most people wonder whether using mobile signal boosters boosts voice call only. Our boosters work to boost both voice and data signals. This, however, depends on the model of your mobile phone signal repeater. Our boosters can also boost 2g, 3G, 4G and LTE signals, so that should not be a worry especially with 4G mobile users. With these boosters, you can put a sock on all your connectivity problems once and for all.
The 4G Booster
The telecommunications industry has been revolutionized with the 4G band network. The speeds that you can get from 4G boosters are remarkable to say the least. It is like your internet is on steroids. However, poor connections can make your internet seem like it is on its death bed, always slow, always buffering. Our 4G signal boosters give your phone’s 4G signal the lifeline it needs, making it strong, consistent and reliable. With the booster, you get to enjoy your fast internet always
We have cell phone signal boosters for New Zealand, South Africa and France markets as well .
