    Default HOw to boost GSM Signal

    Hey, I am working in a hard sheltered building. The problem is that I found a sweet spot in the building which can receive hp signal. But it is quite a distance from my desk, Is there a way to tap the signal to my desk area? Any advise on this? is that a product that meant for this purpose? A repeater or something? Pls advise...

    In some places, it's no choice for poor reception.
    Don't forget, signals drop when there's brick walls.

    Agree with +Evenstar. you can ask the building management to get the respective service provider to install booster inside the building but that will depends on the number of users in the specific location.

    It's quite common to use a 3G repeater for overseas homes.

    I think almost all commercial buildings have handphone signal boosters and the handphone companies does the installation for free. They might even need to pay the building's management for installng the antennas on the roof. The signal boosters are everywhere, even inside the toilets, M1, Starhub, Singtel, all located close to each other.

    Can I just ask what might be the reasons for the only spot in the center of the room to have reception? Does wires help?
