A cell repeater is a necessity when reception is poor. Dropped calls, marginal voice quality, delayed reception of text messages or voice mails without hearing the phone ring are all annoying and potentially harmful in the case of emergencies. Cell phone usage has grown by leaps and bounds over the last five years. Now almost everyone has a cell phone, but the rural areas still have less consistent service and need cell repeaters to improve their reception and coverage area. Even with the improvement of 3G and 4G cellular service a cellular signal repeater is needed despite the fewer dropped calls, there are still times when calls are dropped. No one wants this to be when they are on an important call.
Verizon AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and the other less known providers might be fighting for signal, but they do agree that cell repeater devices are a necessity in rural areas. The 4G service has not quite expanded to the entire North American continent and will need some help. A cell repeater is the way to get signal into valleys that may be just out of reach of the cell towers. With the major providers fighting over 4G, cell signal repeaters will become more commonplace and necessary.
