Best Cheap Cell Phone Signal Booster
Cheap cell phone signal boosters are a great choice if you need better signal, but don't have a lot to spend. Our choices may be cheaper in price, but they don't skimp on quality. It’s important to remember that the more expensive the booster, the better the coverage and gain. That's not to say that cheaper boosters don't work, they absolutely do. But they will work better in an environment with a stronger outside signal.
The stronger your outside signal, the more a cell phone signal booster has to work with. The best cheap cell phone signal boosters make the most of every ounce of outside signal. We offer some great cheap boosters for vehicles and homes, starting from R5250.
Can I Use Budget Unlicensed Signal Boosters?
No. All legal cell phone signal boosters are licensed with ICASA. Sometimes you may come across really cheap signal boosters online and be tempted to buy one. Before you do, make sure that they are legal and licensed. Often, you’ll find that the really cheap ones aren't.
Why is this important? An unregistered cell signal booster can take down the entire cellular network for everyone in an area. ICASA lists every registered booster on its website. Many of these illegal boosters can be found on the internet. If you use an illegal booster you run the risk of disconnecting everyone around you, or even worse, disrupting 911 and other emergency services.
