AT&T Wireless Booster Solution

I have att and can work while on the road but looking to find a good solution that someone has to improve att wireless service while at a CG.

I need to find some way to improve my service and I am in IT but have not found a decent solution for our iPhone 7 Plus phones, also use a Galaxy S7 for work, hoping someone on here has found a solution as I do not really want to put holes in the New Montana if I donít have to?

Weboost makes a complete line of cell amplifiers and antennae for this application. They also make a line of commercial grade amplifiers under the Wilson name. You can do a quick Google search and find lots of options.

Send a message via AIM to racquetballfreq
X3 to weboost. We are using the 4gx-Rv booster. I also purchased the magnetic antenna for my truck so that we can use it while driving as well.

Do what I did many years ago. I just had to have the iPhone when they first came out. AT&T was the only game in town. While traveling around the country i found that in far to many places no service or weak service causing droped calls. This was sooooo bad the I would forward my phone to my wife's Verizon phone so I could get calls. As soon as Verizon got the iPhone I dumped AT&T. Now I know this was many years ago but from what I see and hear AT&T has not improved.

Just to be fair like RVs all phone carriers have their problems.

We have AT&T and Verizon with WeBoost and MiFi on Verizon and the AT&T wireless home phone/Hotspot with 250G. I teach online, so like you I cannot be disconnected. So far - no problem and we stream TV constantly.

Just got back from a work camping trip. I have the Verizon Jetpack 6620L. Tested it at home and had 23 Mbps down and 10 up for speeds.
went with the month to month unlimited plan.
That was good enough.

Well picked a camp that said they had good cell service.
Get there jetpack had 1 bar and 6 down and 6 up. Not fast enough.
Picked up a weboost RV65. Then went to 3 sometime 5 bars and speeds increased to 10-12 down and 6 down.

found out just how much I was throttled back when after GoT ended their season.
Same location 2 days after GoT ended, speeds went up to 32 down and 12 up. Faster than DSL

During the day I was throttled back to 1 down a 4 up.

I work nights so beign throttled was not too much of an issue.
