Cellular signal boosters?
I get terrible cell reception in the majority of my house. I have been using a femtocell (AT&T Microcell), but absolutely hate the fact that while I'm on a call, as I walk around the house I will regularly get handed off to the macrocell in a strong spot, then the call will drop when I walk back to an area that relies on the femtocell for coverage (as it can't handle macro to femto hand off).
I have been flirting with the idea of a cellular signal booster, such as the Wilson AG Pro 70db, as I get pretty good reception on my roof. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these. How well will the internal panel antenna will cover a ~1500sqft house, do you run into any feedback issues, do you have any hand off issues (specifically if I have started a call on the macrocell out of the house, then I walk into the Faraday cage that is apparently my house, are there any issues as I go from the macrocell to the in house cell booster)?
