Understanding how the booster work is quite easy. The antenna acts as the receiver, it then feeds the modem booster with the signal it receives. The booster then amplifies the signal and also serves as a relay between the cellular modem and the cell tower. Its efficiency then increases the longer it gets connected to the signal of the cellular tower.

The whole kit can improve the signal by as much as 15 dB. Although the level of gain highly depends on certain conditions as there are a lot of factors that can affect the efficiency of the booster. Factors such as environmental condition, machine placement, and more. So it’s important to keep that in mind if you plan to use one of this for your business or commercial placement use.

Another thing worth noting is that this booster is an M2M configuration, meaning it only boosts the signal strength of whatever machine it is connected to. It does not boost the signal strength such as cellular reception for cell phones. If that’s what you are looking for, then the Signal 4G is not for you.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a device that can boost the gain signal of your SIM-based internet 4G data router at home, then this signal booster will be perfect for you.

The Wilson Pro 70 Plus is quite easy to understand how it works. First, you simply have to place the outdoor antenna to a high located for it to have a consistent signal reception. It can detect very faint signals, much fainter than any smartphone or cellphone could ever detect. It will then feed the signal to the model amplifier boosting the signal to a reliable working network. The signal will be then the output of the indoor antenna feeding cellular phone the signal it needs to properly work its telecommunication features.

This booster can provide as much as 70dB of gain with support for bands 2, 4, 5, 13, and 12/17 for 700 to 2100 MHz. Compared to the Pro Signa 4G, the Pro 70 Plus produces a signal network that feeds any cellular phones within the coverage area. Providing a reliable voice and data coverage for 4G, 3G, and 2G connectivity. Unlike the Pro Signal 4G, the Pro 70 Plus is not an M2M device and it does not require a machine to connect to. It will function on its own.

The only downside of this kit is the price. Right now, you can purchase a cellular signal booster for home use as low as $400 for a complete kit with maximum gains of around 50 to 60 dB. So, spending on the Pro 70 plus that cost as much as $2,499.99 may not be as practical as purchasing cheaper ones that can almost provide the same performance.
