Re: Better indoor mobile repeaters on the way

I am quite happy with the repeater I have at present. The problem now is that the common wifi channels will be swamped with stronger signals from further down the road. Not too bad where I live but high density housing could cause problems.

Re: Better indoor mobile repeaters on the way

@TeeGee Mobile repeaters do not use Wi-fi frequencies, they re-transmit the actual mobile network signals... nothing to do with wi-fi. I consider them to be virtually useless if you have a very weak or non existent mobile signal you can't make it any better. Wi-fi calling is the way to go, that uses existing wi-fi signals to connect to the mobile network through your broadband connection, no stronger signals required.

Thanks for correcting me! As you say, another device where there are better alternatives generally available.
