The Importance of an Office Signal Booster

Mobile Signal Solutions Installation Process

Why Do You Have Poor Mobile Signals in Your Office?

UK cities receive a strong signal from all network providers including Vodafone, O2, EE and Three. The problem arises from how the offices are constructed, a focus on insulation and heat retention means using materials that block the GSM, 3G and 4G signal entering the office. Mobile signal operates on frequency bands that struggle to get through numerous building materials including concrete, steel and foil backed insulating materials. In particular, kingspan insulation acts as a barrier for phone signals entering office buildings.
