Is it worth getting a booster for my ZTE MF279?

I recently got a ZTE MF279 for my home internet service. I have been very happy with it so far. I'm averaging 26Mb/s down and 2.1 Mb/s up. The MF279 is giving me a reading of -111 to -113 dBm and 2 of 4 bars, but when I put my phone in the same area I'm getting around -101 dBm on average and 4 of 5
