Enhance your indoor mobile network

What is the Mobile Booster project?

Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) has launched the roll out of its new mobile booster scheme, aimed at small businesses and households in rural communities who currently have inadequate coverage, have access to only one provider and who are currently struggling with connectivity.

The initiative, which is being funded through the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership’s (HotSWLEP) Growth Deal, will offer vouchers worth £800 to enable selected premises to purchase a wireless mobile signal booster in order to improve their 4G coverage.

Data from Ofcom states that 23,000 premises across the Devon and Somerset area are 4G “not-spots”, meaning they lack adequate coverage.

The Mobile Booster project aims to upgrade 4G coverage within homes and businesses in order to improve connectivity and the ability to make voice calls.

What is in the Mobile Booster kit?

1. Cel-Fi GO X
2. Indoor Omni Antenna
3. Wideband Directional External Antenna

The equipment, compatible with the EE, O2, Three and Vodafone networks, can only boost one mobile network at a time. The network being boosted can be switched using the Cel-Fi Wave App. You must have at least 1 bar of signal, from your desired operators, somewhere outside of your property.

The equipment has been selected by consultants on behalf of CDS and we make no assurances or guarantees. Should a problem occur after the initial installation sign-off, that is not due to our installation of the equipment, then engineer time and materials will be chargeable.

What does it cost?

The total cost for the kit and installation is £1,100 including VAT. The total customer contribution will be £300. This amount will be taken as a deposit before we schedule an engineer visit and the balance will be paid by the CDS voucher upon completion. Should we find that the system cannot be installed for any reason then a £100-£150 call out fee shall be charged and the balance of the deposit refunded to you.

How do I apply for a voucher?

You must apply for a Mobile Booster voucher directly through the CDS website. The process is very simple and straightforwad, only taking a minuite or two to complete and the results are delivered almost immmediately.
