Our Top Five Picks for Boosting Signal in Your Home or Business.
There is nothing more frustrating than dropped calls or slow data speeds. You already pay for an overprice cell phone bill. Is a decent signal really too much to ask for? For some of us, we get dropped calls in the city or where we live in the suburbs. For even more of us, who chose a quieter small-town living. Slow data and poor signal have become an accepted way of life. It is funny that while we must live with half the signal strength others get, we sure do not pay half the bill.
