What is a Cell Phone Signal Booster for Office and Commercial Buildings?
In offices and commercial buildings a cell phone signal booster can provide everybody inside the building with reliable cell signals for all US carriers and devices. Signal boosters require no recurring fees, can be easy to install for small spaces, and are used across the US to boost weak voice, text and 4G LTE data signals for reliable cell service in small and large offices and commercial buildings.
How Do Cell Phone Boosters for Offices and Commercial Buildings Work?
Offices and commercial buildings with no cell signal inside and weak but usable signals outside or nearby the building can improve the cell signal inside by installing a SureCall signal booster. Cell phone signal boosters use an outside antenna to capture the signal that exists outside of the building, a signal booster that strengthens the signal’s strength, and inside antenna(s) to distribute the improved cell signal throughout the inside of the building. Cell phone boosters are used to stop dropped calls and fix weak signals in offices and commercial buildings up to 500,000 square feet. Any space with a weak cell signal can benefit from one of SureCall’s powerful cell phone signal boosters to improve cell signals for all carriers, all cell phones and devices, and with absolutely no recurring fees after purchase.
Best Cell Phone Signal Booster for Offices and Commercial Buildings
Selecting the best cell phone signal booster for an office or commercial building will depend on a few things - size of the building, strength of the signal outside of the building, density and number of walls in the building, price, number of carriers, and satisfaction suite of the manufacturer. SureCall signal boosters work with all cellular carriers in the US to boost voice, text and 4G LTE data in offices and commercial buildings with any wall density up to 500,000 square feet. As long as there is a usable cell signal outside of the building one of our boosters will be able to boost the signal with the best price-performance value of any booster on the market and a Customer Satisfaction Suite that provides SureCall customers with a 3-year warranty, 60-day money-back guarantee, and lifetime US-Based technical support.
Improve Cell Signals for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile in Offices and Commercial Spaces
There are three cellular improvement solutions that are most frequently used to boost signals in small and large offices and commercial spaces: signal booster, femtocell (also called microcell), and Active Distributed Antenna System (DAS). The best option for improving cell service in an office or commercial space is simple to identify by answering a few basic questions.
Does the building need coverage for more than one cell carrier?
If yes, the signal booster will be the better choice as one signal booster can improve the signal strength for every US cell carrier with a weak signal outside of a building. On the other hand, femtocells and microcells are specific to one carrier. Active DAS can also boost signals for multiple carriers, however, you must seek the approval of the FCC and every carrier you will be boosting - this can be a long process but multiple carrier coverage is possible with Active DAS.
How large is the building that needs better cell signal?
SureCall cell phone signal boosters can improve cell signals in buildings up to about 500,000 square feet, depending on the booster kit. Femtocells and microcells boost signals for very small areas, typically between 1 to 2 rooms. Active DAS boosts signals for massive buildings, stadiums, shopping malls and other spaces over 500,000 square feet that have a very high count of simultaneous users.
Is there a cell signal outside or nearby the building?
If no, you will be best suited by a femtocell or microcell that can be purchased from your specific cellular carrier. These work by creating a cellular hotspot that uses the building’s Internet connection. A second option for very large buildings with no outside signal is Active DAS, which connects directly to the carrier’s network and can generate a signal even if one is not already present in the area. On the other hand, if there is a usable signal near the building, a signal booster is most often the better choice for improved signals for every US cell carrier.
What are the needs for timeline and pricing?
When it comes to timeline, a femtocell can be easily installed, a signal booster can be installed in anywhere between one day and one week, depending on the size of the building, and Active DAS often takes more than one year for receipt of all approvals from FCC and carriers and installation. The price to improve cell signal varies. Femtocells cost a few hundred dollars and have a recurring monthly fee, cell phone signal boosters cost between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, based on the size of the building, and Active DAS costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.
What Causes Dropped Calls and Bad Cell Reception?
Dropped calls, slow cell phone data, and weak cell signal are the product of many different factors working both together and alone. Distance from a cell tower, cell tower user capacity, and the number of objects between you and the tower all cause dropped calls and weak cell signals. Some of the common signal blocking objects include mountains, rocks, trees, snow or dirt-pile, rain, dust in the air, buildings, dense walls, and anything made of metal, like copper, aluminum, iron and more. Basically, the more items or distance between a cell phone and a cell tower, the weaker the signal will be. This needs to be taken into mind both for the signal the device receives from the cell tower and the signal the device sends back to the cell tower. SureCall signal boosters boost that signal for both directions to overcome those cell phone signal blocking obstacles.
