Cell phone signal booster sales have gone up since the quarantine. More people are working from home, more overall data is being used per household, and the number of devices per household has increased. All of this translates into a greater need for signal boosters.

Because more people than ever are searching online for the best cell signal boosters, this is a good time to give you some information that will help you pick the right one. There are lots of them out there; many brands, styles, and applications. Here, we’re going to talk about the ones designed specifically for home use. At, we have multiple options for home-use boosters. We’re going to focus on the top 3.

Doing research on cell phone signal boosters can sometimes get confusing. To help answer the question which cell phone signal booster should I get for my home, we’ll tell you the things you need to consider first.

1. How Do I Know If I Should Get A Signal Booster In My Home?

Are you sure you actually need one? If you have fast data speeds and you never drop calls, you probably don’t need a signal booster in your home. But if you have poor data speeds and dropped calls are common, then you do. Cell phone signal boosters are specifically designed to solve these problems. Preventing dropped calls and increasing data performance is what they do best. That means faster email, faster web browsing, and faster app performance.

And it doesn’t matter if you’re with Rogers (Rocket Hub), Bell (Turbo Hub), or Telus (Smart Hub). Every booster from SureCall Canada is compatible with all Canadian networks. This is because all of our boosters feature a directional antenna. Meaning it can locate and utilize the towers of any carrier. It doesn’t even matter if multiple carriers are represented in your home.

If you want to, you can even target particular rooms or areas of your home to be boosted. They are fully customizable in this way.

It’s also worth noting that having a signal booster in the home increases the battery life of all connected devices. This is because when connected to a weak signal, devices use up more of their battery power. A signal booster in the home corrects this and gives battery life a boost.

2. Do Signal Boosters Really Work?

There just has to be an existing signal to work with. Even the semblance of a signal will work in most cases. Boosters don’t create cell signal out of thin air. They locate an existing signal and enhance it. So, just to make this point clear, if there is no signal outside your home at all, a signal booster won’t work.

Also, every SureCall Canada device is Industry Canada Certified. This gives peace of mind to all our customers that every claim made on our packaging and website are valid. There have also been many third-party tests performed over the years, including recently, that confirm our booster’s effectiveness. And of course, there are tens of thousands of positive reviews online.

3. Is Every Home Compatible With Every Signal Booster?

This is a question that’s raised a lot. The problem with this question is that a signal booster’s effectiveness has little to do with the characteristics or style of your home. It has more to do with whether or not there’s a signal outside. So the answer to the question above is probably. If there’s an existing signal of some kind, then yes, it’ll work. If there isn’t, it won’t.

That being said, how much square footage your home contains does influence which booster you choose. Many of the boosters (including some at are differentiated from each other based on how much square footage they’re designed to fill. For example, let’s say your home is over 2,000 sq ft and you need a signal throughout the whole place. In this case, you need to make sure you get a signal booster designed to cover that much space. Typically, the more space the device can cover, the higher the price.

So the lesson here is that the booster you choose needs to match up with your expectations. Not all cell phone signal boosters are created equally. Some are a lot stronger than others.

4. Should I Get A 4G or 3G Signal Booster?

When asking what cell phone signal booster should I get for my home, something to remember is that there are 3G boosters (dual-band) and 4G boosters (five-band).

Five-band boosters are superior in almost every way. Dual-band signal boosters are falling out of style. Most models still being sold today are old, cheap, and have limited features. The reason for this is that 3G, as you know, is nowhere near as fast as 4G. Mobile phones in North America primarily use 4G. Because of this, SureCall Canada doesn’t even carry 3G signal boosters anymore. In order to maintain our standard as the best in the industry, 3G boosters simply don’t make the cut.

All that being said, if you happen to use a 3G phone, that’s okay. Any SureCall booster will still work for you. 4G boosters still boost 3G devices.

5. What Are the Best Cell Signal Boosters?

The 3 best signal boosters designed for the home are the SureCall Flare, the SureCall Fusion4Home 3.0 Yagi/Right Angle, and the SureCall Fusion4Home 3.0 Yagi/Panel. We’ll talk about each one in some detail. Each one has features that make it different from the others. But we are 100% confident that one of these three is the perfect choice for every person in need of a signal booster.
