Wireless Signal Strength at Home: Signal Boosters?

I have been using AT&T for over 8 years now and I always had this issue of signal strength / lost signal in my house. It wasn't a big issue in my previous house, however in the past 3 years I had really bad problem in my new house. I work out of my home office and my cell phone is my primary phone for my office and this makes it an even bigger issue for me. Does AT&T provide signal boosters for these issues ? I know of at least one other provider that gives out boosters free of cost to compensate for coverage/signal issues. I did not find any kind support for this issue at all from AT&T.

AT&T has a femtocell that they sell called the MicroCell. It is not free but the purchase price is a one time cost. It uses your internet connection to connect to the AT&T Mobility Servers via VoIP. AT&T at one time did give out the MicroCell for free to selected individuals but that was more for marketing than anything else. If you are in a documented area of poor coverage they may sell you one at a discount but that is certainly not policy and is up to the discretion of Support/Sales.

 

There are other options such as signal boosters but they can be pricey. There is even one that is approved for use on the AT&T network and another one that works basically on any network up to 4G/LTE.

Thanks for your reply. But, I looked into the MicroCell option however I feel I do not need to pay for the MicroCell due to lack of quality service from AT&T. Other providers are ready to provide a remedy free of cost.
