Hi TTers,

Does anyone have experience with systems purporting to boost access to weak cell towers?

Where our cottage is located, our cell coverage often arrives from the other side of Lake Winnipeg, about 25 miles away. In summer, one bar on the phone's "s-meter" is the most we can hope for. Data moves at a glacial pace.

I've found online systems comprising an outdoor yagi, an amplifier and an indoor panel antenna said to serve as a sort-of repeater to offer stronger reception and improved data rates.

Do these work?
