How Does a Verizon Network Extender Work?

Verizon Wireless boasts one of America’s most reliable networks, with coverage reaching to many

Verizon Wireless boasts one of America’s most reliable networks, with coverage reaching to many corners of the country. Most Verizon customers enjoy cell service in areas where others can’t find a signal. However, there are still numerous dead spots and areas where cell service can be weak. Areas like the inside of some houses, thick concrete office buildings, extremely rural locations, and overly congested urban locations can all offer poorer data and cell reception. With a network extender from SureCall, Verizon Wireless customers and others can benefit from improved signal quality in areas with weak service.

Several years ago, people were used to being somewhere without a cell phone or other means of communication. Today, the majority of people require constant cell phones and data reception. However, cell phone reception and connection are dependent on the nearby signal strength and data reception. Even with a network of thousands of towers in the United States today and a broad coverage area, your Verizon signal may not be full strength in all areas. A Verizon network extender can take weak cell service and turn it into a reliable connection. Let’s take a look at how a network extender works.

Extenders strengthen cell signal and data reception.


A network extender can boost signals in various areas where Verizon or other cell service is limited. These extenders work using a signal booster, an outside antenna, and an inside antenna to help deliver a stronger signal. While network extenders don’t generate a new cell phone signal or produce a signal where there isn’t one, they boost the strength of nearby signals. Once installed, the outside antenna searches for and captures the best signal from the nearest tower. The best signal in proximity to the antenna is then sent to the booster, which bolsters the strength of the signal. The inside antenna receives the newly strengthened signal and then rebroadcasts it to phones and other devices. As long as the antenna can find a reliable signal nearby, you will have improved cell service.

Network extenders improve weak signals in homes and offices.


Dropping calls or moving around to find service at home can be really inconvenient. However, if you drop calls or lose reception at your office, it could cost you business and money. An extender can help boost the Verizon network or other carrier network in and around your home or office. Boosters strengthen 4G LTE and 5G signals in homes of any size or office as long as there is at least a weak signal outside. Depending on the size of the office building, you might require a larger network extender. Extenders for the home and office are easy to install and can provide immediate improved signal quality.

Extenders can create better reception when you’re on the road.


Similar to the way a signal booster in the home or office can extend the Verizon network, a mobile extender can do the same in your car or RV. Relying on the same three-antenna and booster components, a mobile extender is great for use when you are out on the road or parked in an area with weak service. From buildings to trees, many things can interfere with a cell signal, and an extender can help alleviate those problems. When you are out on the road, you probably rely on your phone for navigation and other important features. However, without reliable service in some areas, your access to these tools might be interrupted. A mobile network extender travels with you to ensure you have the cell service you need.

If you find that you are in areas where cell reception is weak, a network extender can help to improve signal strength in your car, RV, home, or office. A Verizon extender can help you get even better service on one of America’s strongest networks.
