Performing as Well as Before?

Have you noticed a decline in the performance of your WeBoost cell signal booster? It can be frustrating when a device that once reliably improved your cell signal strength starts to underperform. However, before you become too concerned, let’s explore some common reasons why your WeBoost signal booster might not be working as effectively as it used to and what you can do about it.

External Factors: Environmental changes can significantly impact signal strength. Factors such as new buildings or structures, changes in landscape, or even nearby construction projects can interfere with your booster’s ability to capture and amplify cell signals.

Antenna Alignment: Proper antenna alignment is crucial for optimal performance. If your outdoor antenna has shifted or if there have been changes in your surroundings, it may no longer be aimed at the nearest cell tower. Check the alignment and adjust the antenna direction if necessary.

Cable Issues: Over time, cables can degrade or become damaged, leading to signal loss. Inspect your cables for any signs of wear or damage, and replace them if needed. Additionally, ensure that all connections are secure and properly tightened to minimize signal loss.

Signal Overload: In areas with strong outside signal, your booster might experience overload, causing it to throttle back its amplification. This can result in reduced performance. Consider adjusting the placement of your outdoor antenna or using an attenuator to reduce the incoming signal strength.

Software Updates: Sometimes, updates to your cellular provider’s network or changes in technology can affect how your booster operates. Make sure your WeBoost device’s firmware is up to date to ensure compatibility with the latest network standards and protocols.

Interference: Other electronic devices or sources of interference, such as nearby power lines or electronic equipment, can disrupt the functioning of your booster. Try relocating your equipment to minimize interference and improve performance.

Signal Source: Ensure that your cell phone or device is compatible with the frequency bands supported by your WeBoost booster. Using a device that operates on a different frequency band than the booster is designed for can result in poor performance.

Technical Issues: In some cases, technical issues with the booster itself may be the cause of decreased performance. If you’ve ruled out other potential issues and are still experiencing problems, contact WeBoost customer support for assistance.

By addressing these common issues, you can troubleshoot why your WeBoost cell signal booster isn’t working as effectively as it used to and take steps to improve its performance. Remember to regularly maintain and monitor your booster to ensure continued reliable operation.
