Cel-Fi Smart Signal Boosters are the solution for poor indoor signal coverage
Frequency Telecom, an exclusive distributor of Cel-Fi from Nextivity, has the answer to these problems! Cel-Fi offer a range of smart signal boosters that support mobile users to boost their 3G voice and data performance and with the latest Cel-Fi PRO, they can also improve 4G data coverage. The plug-and-play solution comes complete with two units that work to improve indoor coverage by capturing the weak signal that reaches the building with the window unit, improving it and retransmitting the signal via the coverage unit.
Cel-Fi works to comply with regulations set out by Ofcom. Unlike many other signal boosters on the market, Cel-Fi’s unique technology does not interfere with mobile network provider overall performance and is therefore approved by many of the major UK networks.
At Frequency, we offer signal boosters available for four of the major network providers: EE, Three, Vodafone and O2. The units create a large coverage bubble which automatically adjusts to the size of the indoor environment it is serving, making it the perfect choice for both homes and offices alike. What’s more, the technology is completely legal – eliminating the risk that other mobile signal boosters carry!
