Kits boost cell phone range

Mar 3, 2014 by Guest Writer

South Carolina-based Shakespeare Company has launched dual-band Aura and Halo cellular booster kits that improve AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon cell phone and internet reception where phone signals are weak.

The unique design of the boosters increases call clarity for multiple users in areas up to 6,000 square feet. Installation is simple, requiring no special tools or tech skills.

The Aura CA-VAT kit is compatible with virtually all U.S. 2G and 3G networks and betters reception for up to five users simultaneously. Accommodating up to eight users, the Halo model works with virtually all U.S. 2G and 3G networks. It also boosts 4G networks via a carrier-specific configuration (AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon).

Each kit includes amplifier, outdoor and indoor antenna, coax cable and a user manual. The Aura booster retails for $612.86. The Halo retails for $1,430. For more information, visit
