What’s the Best Cell Phone Booster for Rural Areas?
Updated April 21, 2021 Rural areas have unique challenges with cellular reception. Homes and businesses in outlying areas are often more distant from cell towers, receiving less signal and experiencing slower data rates. Cellular signal of low strength have a harder time penetrating building materials, so many rural homes and commercial buildings have no usable indoor cell signal. Fortunately, there are solutions to the problem of poor cell signal in homes, metal buildings, farm o […]
Custom solution: Engine parts manufacturer in Michigan (36,000 ft²)
A Michigan engine-parts manufacturer that produces high-performance parts for racing has two separate buildings, each with an office, warehouse, and manufacturing facilities. Both buildings are constructed of metal, which is very effective at blocking cellular signals and cutting off communication to anyone inside. Powerful Signal designed a solution that included a separate 4G cell signal amplification system for each building. Both buildings had two floors, and contained offices an […]

Why don’t cell phones work in my building?
Commercial passive DAS systems improve cellular reception indoors. A passive DAS system brings usable cell signal inside a building, often working within a hostile signal environment brought on by many different types of building materials. So why does one building get strong, usable cell signal, while the building next to it is a cell signal disaster? Unfortunately there is no single answer to that question; there can be several major variables involved. There are four mai […]
How a Florida distribution center solved its cell phone reception problem
A 90-year-old, $1 billion dollar international food distribution company had cell signal coverage issues in one of their newest distribution centers: Staff who were located in the offices of their 345,000-square-foot distribution center had trouble making and receiving cell phone calls due to the type of commercial building materials used in the distribution center.

Custom solution: South Carolina welding company (14,000 ft²)
Welding companies, by nature, have a lot of metal in their building materials. One South Carolina welding company has a 14,000-square foot metal building with a metal roof; all this metal was blocking cell signals from coming into the office areas. In addition to that, a transformer station behind the building was also interfering with cellular reception. Powerful Signal designed a cell signal amplification system that overcome the problems caused by the metal building and transforme […]
