Cellular Antennas, Amplifiers and Repeaters are Frequency Specific

Cell phone antennas and amplifiers are frequency specific and you must ensure that the antenna or amplifier you
purchase supports the frequency used by your carrier in the area you want to use it.

For maximum compatibility for most North American carriers 2G/3G/4G equipment that is minimum dual-band 800MHz Cellular or 1900MHz PCS is generally recommended.  In many markets 4G data (LTE, WiMax) is on 700 MHz, 1700-2100 MHz, 1900MHz and 2500-2700 MHz).  Please contact us directly for 4G solutions.

In the case of mid to large building repeater systems, single band systems may be adequate. You can use Wireless Advisor's Carrier License Tool to determine the frequency bands licensed by a particular carrier in a particular zipcode. Please note that ownership of a license does not ensure that the carrier is actively using it.

Exceptions:

iDEN (Nextel, SouthernLINC, Mike): iDEN (Nextel, Southern LINC, Mike) While most dual-band cell antenna support the 800MHz iDEN band, iDEN users must use amplifiers and repeaters specifically designed for iDEN (Nextel, SouthernLINC, Mike) frequencies - Cellular and PCS amplifiers and repeaters will not work.  As of late 2013, iDEN it its original form from Sprint/Nextel has been completely turned off.  Southern Linc is still operating on the 800 mHz iDEN type system. .

T-Mobile 3G: T-Mobile 3G/4G service operates on the new AWS 1700/2100MHz band which is supported by Several Multi-Band amplifiers and Repeaters. Dual-Band Cellular/PCS and single-band PCS equipment is compatible with traditional T-Mobile GSM/EDGE service. Other carriers 3G service (AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint PCS, etc) operate on the standard cellular/PCS frequency bands and can use normal dual-band equipment. More information on T-Mobile 3G frequency.

The following antennas include support for the T-Mobile 3G frequency range (complete T-Mobile US 3G Cell Antenna Category):
