I live in the Shenandoah Valley just outside of Grottoes VA. My internet is via Sprint using a (portable) pocketWiFi device that "beams" my internet from a tower located far away. I went with Sprint since they have an unlimited data plan (which I formerly had with Ntelos, which was bought by Sprint). I originally had only 1 bar on my Wifi device, but after chatting with folks at the 3G store, they recommended this product.
I was skeptical, but took the leap. WOW! It worked great. You get a booster, an outdoor antenna, and an indoor antenna. The outdoor antenna collects the signal, which is sent to the booster and then to the indoor antenna; the boosted signal is then sent to my Wifi device, which sends the signal to the rest of my house. I have consistently 5 bars. I am really impressed.
A few things to note: you will need two people to set this up; one person to manipulate the outdoor antenna (that is hooked up to the booster + indoor antenna) to find the sweet spot for the signal, and another person inside to observe the Wifi device to see the difference in signal strength. If you have a portable Wifi device that runs on batteries (as mine does--it also has an AC adapter), then just take the device outside/on your roof and look for the signal change. Once you've found the high-strength area, that's where to start with placing your antenna.
Across the board, this was a very successful purchase. The folks at 3G store were great, and they even followed up with me to make sure I was satisfied. Great product, great business.

My former internet service was expensive and poor, so I wanted to switch to a new one based on a hotspot. However, my reception here is really bad so I needed a new amplifier. This seems to have done the trick very nicely!

Product works fantastic, it double the signal, it accommodates multiple users, I can now use the phones without dropping the calls

Buy with caution! If you don't have a bar or two on your phone, this will not help. You must have a signal in order for it to be able to work. I am in a fringe area, mine works depending on the weather and cloud cover. I am planning to add a yagi antenna with hopes that it will help enough to make this work most of the time. The unit and antenna connections get very hot if the signal is weak as it has to work very hard to amplify a weak signal. This helps a lot inside the house and is a very good appliance. Just be aware of its limitations before making a purchase.3G store is very helpful and it is easy to get help.

Thank you to 5gstore for calling me to check up on how the product was working for me, that is great customer service. The device works great, I went from a -116 dBm to a -88 dBm.

Not only was the box open, which I expected, but the system was also "open" and will not close properly.

The "open box" really wasn't opened, it appears to be more of an overstock item. Everything was still sealed in the manufacturers packaging. Unit works great and now I have phone service in my steel building workshop. Thanks 5Gstore.

We are located on a lake, and had sattelite internet. It was painfully slow, and then we heard about this product. We installed it and it works great with a pantech modem! Couldn't be happier with it!
