How To Strengthen Your Mobile Signal: To Build A Self-Made Booster Or To Buy A 4G Amplifier?

Today it is quite difficult to imagine our life without high-speed mobile internet. We use the connection not only for communication or entertainment, many of us need to be connected in order to work and to earn money.

However, even if you use the services of the best carrier in the country, this fact doesn’t guarantee that you won’t have any issues with your 4G connections. Quite often signal problems are not a fault of your operator as there are many external factors (like peculiarities of your building or landscape) that can deteriorate the stability of connection.

But the main thing that you should know is that you can solve 4G signal problems on your own! And there are even a couple of ways to do it. In this article, we are going to tell you more about what can be done to ensure a stable connection in your house or office: from creating a self-made booster to buying a ready set. Please, pay attention that some of these methods will be applicable only if you have a 4G modem or router.


Variant 1 (the easiest one)

Placing your modem near the window or outdoors

Actually, you can try to do it right now. It won’t take much time but it won’t guarantee perfect results as well. It is absolutely simple to do it (as for additional equipment or tools, you may need only a USB extension cord).

But you should understand that the highest result that you can achieve in this case is to boost your 4G signal by 10-15%.


Variant 2

Building a self-made booster with something available at home

This method is quite simple and doesn’t require huge investments. In this case to boost the signal sent by your 4G modem, you need to use something that you can find at home like a cooking pot or a tin can.

In this case, you need to place your modem inside the can which will help to concentrate the signal on the modem. Then the modem should be connected to the computer with a cable of a relevant length (otherwise, the increase in signal will be very insignificant).

This diy 4G LTE signal booster for home demonstrates a little bit better results than the first one. The signal with such a 4G amplifier will be increased by 15-20%. One of the main disadvantages of this method is a rather impressive size of this construction.


Variant 3

Building a zigzag antenna for a 4G modem

This method is far not the easiest one but if you like doing things on your own and are confident in your skills, you can try.

To do it, you need a copper flat wire with a diameter of 2.5-3 mm that you should bend in the shape of two squares with the right dimensions. There is a lot of information on the internet on how to define the right size and how to build it. Strict accuracy in calculations is required! When the antenna is ready, it should be connected to the modem with a coaxial cable.

This antenna can help you to boost your 4G signal by up to 50%. But it is important to understand that if you build an antenna of an irrelevant size, it won’t function and help you in making your signal stronger.


Variant 4

Buying a ready-made 4G signal booster for home
