In order to combat weak signal-strength inside the home, T-Mobile will unleash a new program that offers signal boosters to its customers beginning on September 7th. The boosters will increase the available signal of T-Mo's 3G and 4G networks, but, like with most things, has certain downfalls:
- Signal Boosters are not available in multi-family residence (i.e. apartment, condo, etc)
- You must be able to receive at last one bar of 3G service anywhere within the house
- The booster is T-Mobile's property and a fee of up to $500 may be charged if the device is damaged or not returned upon cancellation
- The booster will require a two-year agreement with the associated line
Despite the fact that a two-year agreement is required and the user is held responsible for any possible damages, the booster will not cost any additional monthly charges.
With all things considered, though, this is still good news for users who need a signal boost but aren't willing to ditch Team Magenta.
