Some people may still be in fringe areas and will need additional equipment to boost the LTE signal. 3gstore has antennas, amplifiers and repeater kits to help in those areas. The following kits listed below are a few of our most popular:

*Wilson Sleek 4g-A is for users who need to boost signal to one phone or hotspot (like the Elevate Hotspot) in a car, truck, or SUV. (can be used indoors with accessory kit - sold separately)
*Cellphone-Mate 3-Watt AT&T/US Cellular 4G LTE Direct Connect Amplifier - CM700A-32 [700Amhz ONLY]- is for providing the most signal possible to a single AT&T or US Cellular 4G LTE device that has an antenna port.
*Cellphone-Mate 65db Tri-Flex 4G-A Repeater Kit for AT&T 3G/4G w/ OMNI Antenna [700A/800/1900MHz] is for users who need to provide amplified voice/3G and AT&T 4G signal to multiple cellular modems or phones in a home or office up to 5000 square feet and have the space to accommodate the 50' of separation between the outside and inside antennas that this kit requires.

Some applications will only need antennas. Here are the most popular antennas:
*9.5" Full Band Outdoor Omni 3G/4G Antenna-is for 3g and 4g users who do not have line of sight to the cell tower or don't want to worry about aiming an antenna; mobile users who need an omni antenna that covers 3G and 4G.*
*Wilson Outdoor Weatherproof Directional Panel Antenna - 304453/301157 is for 3G and 4G users who know where the cell tower serving them is located (or have the patience to test it during installation until it is properly aimed).
*Wilson Wide-Band Yagi (700Mhz-2700Mhz) - 304411 is for 3G and 4G users who have direct line of sight to the cell tower serving them (NO obstructions!).

3gstore highly recommends doing a site survey at fixed locations before purchasing any equipment. You can find the instructions to the site survey here: 3gstore.com/rssi
