Rural areas usually have limited cellular coverage. The country of the Netherlands is home to several rural places and rustic farms. So, in your remote house or farm in Holland, you may be experiencing call drops and slow internet due to spotty cellular service. If so, you may be wondering how to boost 4G signals in the Netherlands. Not to worry, there are possible solutions to your issue.
One of these is a 4G LTE signal booster. Whether it will be for an urban or rural location, the booster will come with components that can pick up and make the cellular signal better. In a rural place, it may boost it up to about 32 times. To improve the signal, the system uses an external antenna, the main booster unit, and an internal antenna.
The external antenna will be installed outside your rural cottage or farm, it will receive the signal available there and send it to the booster indoors. The booster will then improve the signal and will pass it on to the internal antenna. The antenna placed indoors will rebroadcast that improved signal to the mobile devices. All standard boosters are designed to cover a single-level house.
It can work only when there is some amount of signal in the location of the external antenna. The signal strength required for it to work will depend on the size of your building. If it is a big residence, then decent signal strength would suffice. If it is a medium-sized house, it would be possible to improve weak outdoor signals with the booster system. To make the coverage as big as possible, extra antennae may be needed, particularly if you are attempting to cover more than one level. In a rural place, you can expect the booster to have a coverage of around 2,500 sq ft.
The coverage of the booster will depend on the signal strength outside. So have realistic expectations regarding coverage. Do not expect it to cover an area of 7,500 sq ft when the signal outside your building is weak.
Another important thing to consider is the installation of the booster system. You may either do it on your own or hire a team of installation service professionals. Some of the booster manufacturers also offer installation services for customers in the countryside.
