I purchased a house where the cell phone signal strength is very low. It’s strange, because the cell tower is about two miles directly north from my house, but it must be a combination of slight rises in the land and trees, because I get almost no signal inside or outside my house. When I drive past the tower I get full signal.
I get slightly better signal if I’m on the second floor, and slightly better yet if I’m in the attic. Still nowhere near great, but better.
Is there a cheap, diy sort of solution I could try to see if I can get better signal on my first floor and in my basement?
I tried this, but it didn’t do anything. Probably because there’s about 75 feet of RG-59 between the two antenna. I have a signal booster I could put in between them, but I’m still skeptical it will work.
Any other ideas I could try? Eventually I’ll get internet to my house, which will hopefully make this problem go away.
