EE Signal Booster
Frequently Asked Questions
The EE mobile signal booster is the most reliable solution for any EE signal problems. The device strengthens the signal in areas with poor EE signal reception. The booster system consists of the EE signal booster box besides two antennas.
The first antenna is set up outside the house/office with the main purpose of catching poor EE signal from the nearest cell towers. The booster box (which is placed indoors) intensifies this signal and then passes it on to the indoor antenna which distributes the improved signal around the house/office.
A great advantage of the EE signal booster is that it is easy to install and use. As soon as you set it all up, you will see positive changes in your signal power. The EE signal booster amplifies your existing coverage levels, helping turn one bar (or even a half bar) into full five bars of signal. You can make clearer calls with less noise and distortion.
- Outside antenna – The outside antenna is installed and positioned on your roof. Its functions are to receive and send signals. It picks up the weak signal from the base station antenna and sends it to the booster.
- The booster – The signal caught by the outdoor antenna is passed to the booster through a cable. The booster then amplifies the strength of the signal. It strengthens the connection bi-directionally. This means that the signal received and sent from the O2 phone is stronger.
- Indoor antenna – This antenna receives the strengthened signal from the booster and transmits it across the house. It will also pick up the signal from the phone to send back to the base tower.
Getting an EE mobile phone signal booster from us is the best way to boost your EE mobile signal. All the signal boosters we offer are 2G, 3G and 4G ready. EE’s signal box is another device that boosts mobile signals at home. It works by connecting to a router and sending traffic over the broadband network in order to increase mobile signal.
The most common reason for poor mobile signals in the UK and the subsequent need for a mobile phone signal booster is insulation. While insulation does keep the heat in, it keeps GSM, 3G, 4G and microwave signals out. Installing an outdoor antenna lets you send the EE signal to the booster system, which boosts the signal to the level required. This is a mandatory requirement by Ofcom.
To improve EE signal strength in a large building, our engineers will also install a DAS, which is a comprehensive network of indoor antennas that spread the signals to rooms all over the building. As soon as the boosters are connected to the DAS, you will have improved EE signals throughout the building. This can amount to over 90% coverage in most cases.
The EE mobile signal booster comprises of four parts:
- An exterior antenna
- Coaxial cable
- A signal amplifier
- An indoor antenna
The exterior antenna obtains signals from nearby cell towers and sends them onwards to the signal amplifier through the coaxial cables. The signal amplifier sends them towards the indoor antenna which then finally transmits the strong signals to all those areas facing poor reception.
EE signal box is a device that gives you great reception around the house by using your home broadband connection. It plugs into your broadband router and creates a link to the EE network to provide great indoor mobile signal coverage.
It works by providing 3G coverage with a range of approximately 15 metres. This allows anyone with access to make a call just as normal. Moreover, any customers on the EE network can use the same box.
EE signal box will work with whatever broadband provider you use. You will, however, need a minimum broadband download speed of 512kbp and an upload speed of 256kbps. You will also require the following:
- A 3G compatible phone on EE network
- A spare Ethernet port in your router
- A spare power supply near your router
