    I typed in Greenewood SC. Am I at the right place? The red dots are cell tower locations. Filter them for a specific cell service provider by checking the provider along the top. Cell phone signals are affected by obstructions. Mountains, trees, buildings. Building materials can affect your signal as well. Metal roofing, metal studs. The new roof decking with heat shield material applied. In order for the booster to do some good you have to locate it where there is some kind of signal. In the flat land where I live a viable signal can only reach out about 21 miles.

    I've been reading these forums for a while. This was the first post where I felt I could offer some feedback since I've used products that would help the OP. It's really nothing more than that unfortunately.

    The Verizon network extender website says it covers up to 5,000 sq ft which is about a 40' radius, not 5,000 ft. Or is there a different product that you have?

    OK sorry, you may really like you say be genuine, but 99% of the time when something like this comes up its a certain company media guy that advertises or trashes another company, poseing as a legit poster.

    Yep you are correct in the place, i guess i missed those things on your post? My location is actually 3ish miles southwest of that farthest southwest tower, not even on this map.

    And here is a link to my map of my zip, filtered i think for verizon...
    Bradley Cell Towers and Coverage Maps - CellReception.com

    It shows no towers even in greenwood, which i know there is cause there is a verizon store there in town so there is some towers there?

    My personal cell is alltell, which is very limited maybe half the calls will go through at my house that call me and ones i make maybe 25% can connect allthouth you cant really hear anything, and texts take forever to send. Verizon is worse, basiclly zero signal and att about the same and no one else has a bit of signal.

    No need to apologize, I can certainly see that happening. I guess these days, it's better to assume the worst when reading things online.

    There was a hilarious string of them in the trailer section. One guy complained about X brand of trailer and then another said something then all of a sudden for a week or 2 there kept poping up a person saying how great brand X was then a reply of a person saying how cheap they trailer X was, then another praise. It was like damage control overload for the company then a competitor slamming them again. I pointed it out many times as did others and it continued for a few more posts weeks later!

    Ha, that sounds amazing and terrible at the same time! Sorry to the original poster that we've gotten a bit off topic

    I was just at Verizon today asking about the boosters.

    They say it will work only if you have internet already and can connect the booster to the cable box, and essentially re-transmit the signal. The higher you can get the transmitter, the more range you have. It's been 53 years since I had wave guide theory. Line of sight ,correct.

    Is it also true the higher you place the Mifi the better signal you will have.

    Cost is $199. for the booster
    J.J.

    When I works, I works hard. When I sits and thinks, I goes to sleep.

    Git er done.
