What network are you on ? I know Vodafone sell femtocels
Vodafone Sure Signal
Has anyone found a mobile signal booster that is reliable?
I've spent the last few days trying to source a booster, and wouldn't you know....The only 2 I can find, and neither company wants to answer the phone OR email, so I'm a little bit fed up!
Has anyone found anything like this for 1000m2?
Here are the 2 I've found so far....
High powered O2 and Vodafone mobile phone signal booster
Large 900mhz 1000m2 - £179.99 : gsmmobilesignalbooster.co.uk
Same model, but do they want the business? Seems not from their reluctance to make contact!!!
Does anyone know if there is a T-Mobile (EE) or 02 version of this booster?
As far as I am aware, the mobile operators can sell these and they are legal but the ones sold by other suppliers are not all legal to use.

I'm on O2...but this is correct....as I've just found out!
Ofcom | Mobile phone jammers and cellular enhancers
The last paragraph says it all really! £5000 and/or 51 weeks in clink....Niiiiice!
My aunt had a couple of guys in suits knock on her door a couple of weeks ago who flashed her IDs and asked to come in all officially. One went upstairs while the other explained that their signal boosters were blocking out signal for the whole area. She was pretty shaken and said she wished she hadn't opened the door to which their reply was "We would've busted it down anyway, we've got a warrant to enter".
Nothing ultimately came of it since she was (conscientiously) innocent, she had no idea they were illegal as you can pick them up all over the place but yeh... moral of the story is that if you don't want ofcom kicking your door down get an "official" one or more importantly, don't get an iPhone
O2 BoostBox and costs ~£150.
Alternatively you could wait until O2 release their TuGo smartphone app and then you can make phone calls over WiFi.

Viber - Free calls, Free text messages, photo and location sharing for Android or iOS. No new accounts or passwords to remember, just links to your existing mobile number.

Also very useful for family/friends abroad.
I am going to try and get the Office Signal Box's little brother since my signal is non-existent at home.
Btw, Three also have a femtocell (called the Home Signal) which looks very similar to the one sold by EE. They are probably made by the same company?
