Sometimes cellular coverage can be hindered by some building construction material. Thicker cement with metal bracing and some roofing materials can block a cell phone signal. A cellular repeater can help get around the natural blocking of cement with metal which block radio signals and in turn hinder cellular coverage. Foil backing on foam or...
