Since I moved into the cabin here in the Wicklow Mountains a few years ago, I`ve been struggling with a very bad cell phone signal. I have just had Novatel install a StellaDoradus GSM repeater system and I am delighted with the improved signal quality of my phone and the very careful installation of the system. For the first time, I am now able to make and receive mobile calls at home, as I had to go out to use my mobile phone. In addition, the signal quality is now crystal clear and much better than before when I had to go out, because even then my calls were often interrupted – but now all this is a thing of the past. It was a pleasure to do with Novatel Communications and the quality of their service and installation was excellent and friendly. No. Digital TV and satellite TV both work with different radio signals for mobile phones. The signal repeater, on the other hand, not only receives weak signals and transmits them again, but also involves the control and filtering of interference, allowing other frequency users to coexist. These devices have passed a series of demanding high-frequency tests (E.T.S.I standard) and meet the European standards required to bear the CE marking. There is a flaw in Ofcom`s policies, which means that it is not illegal to sell mobile signal boosters without a license (therefore, a quick Google search yields thousands of low-cost results), but it is completely illegal to use such products – the end user is ultimately held responsible for paying the hefty fines. Illegal devices that do not meet these conditions can cause interference on the mobile network and even other consumer devices. Walls and insulation can interfere with the coverage of your home or office and reduce signal coverage. However, wide open interiors allow for an increase in coverage.
An external antenna picks up cellular signals outside the home and amplifies them inside the home, providing the user with better indoor reception. Our signal boosters for mobile phones (also called signal boosters by others – which are not) are designed and manufactured by StellaDoradus. StellaDoradus is a company based in Waterford, Ireland. They manufacture cellular and WIFI antennas for the EU and US markets. The company also designs and manufactures repeaters for mobile phones that comply with EU standards. All SD products are fully compliant with European R.E.D. regulations and have passed all E.S.T.I. tests, making it safe and legal to use in Ireland, the UK and the rest of Europe. 3G typically broadcasts on 900 MHz or 2100 MHz frequency bands, and mobile operators such as Vodafone, Meteor or Three use these frequencies to provide a 3G signal to their customers. If you`re having trouble receiving the 3G signal in your area, take one of the StellaDoradus 3G repeater kits and enjoy a high-speed internet connection. Only certified mobile signal boosters are legal. The communications regulator here in Ireland, Comreg, has drawn up a list of legal arrangements.
Here is the list of legal mobile phone signal boosters for Ireland: Stelladoradus designs and manufactures legal repeaters in Ireland. However, not all devices are considered legal and licensed in Ireland. These products must meet several technical conditions and pass several tests. The technical conditions aim to provide consumers with better indoor coverage while protecting mobile operators from unwanted interference. There is no limit to the number of phones or devices the repeater can handle. The number of phones that can make a call at any given time depends on the nearby base station. The repeater simply amplifies the signals from the phone and base station.

Up to 283 illegal mobile phone amplifiers, Wi-Fi repeaters, GPS trackers, radar detectors and signal jammers have been seized by customs at postal centers in the past 12 months. It`s just that the only European manufacturer of legal signal amplifiers is here in Ireland, Waterford. The reason we are on Comreg`s list of legal boosters is that our boosters do not cause interference in the operator`s network. Eir – the renowned Meteor, works on the GSM frequency bands 900MHz and 1800MHz. So, if you want to improve your GSM signal for this network, then StellaDoradus Model SD-RP-1002-GD is the best signal repeater kit. You can use it indoors or outdoors, setup is quick and easy. Coilers are not based in Ireland, but also sell legal repeaters. I have good news and bad news. The good news is that our telecommunications controller now allows signal boosters (called “repeaters”) for your home. The bad news is that they cost a lot of money and need to be installed professionally.
A typical 4G repeater costs between €600 and €1,000 to be delivered and installed. In other words, it`s not the same as a simple home Wi-Fi extender box that connects to your home broadband router from your local electronics store for around €100. We didn`t have a phone signal in our house and after contacting Novatel, they quickly suggested a suitable signal booster. They also put us in touch with Keith from MTV Solutions, who installed the device. We received the device and installed it without delay and now we have a 3G signal in every room of our house. I am delighted with the service and highly recommend buying a StellaDoradus kit to improve your phone`s signal. We moved into a new home in rural Ireland, which has always been our dream. Unfortunately, we couldn`t get the broadband and the house didn`t have a cell phone signal inside.
We looked everywhere for a signal amplification solution, but we couldn`t find anything that would work for us until someone recommended Novatel. Niamh and Frank were incredibly understanding, easy to handle and kept their promises. Now we have very decent wireless broadband that is more than enough for what we need, and they have installed a solution that gives us 4G cellular coverage throughout our home. Novatel has made a big difference than anyone else. I would recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. They are lovely people and accomplished professionals. These devices usually consist of 3 parts; an external antenna similar to a TV antenna, an internal antenna placed in the house and the repeater box itself, similar to a Wi-Fi modem placed in a house. The external antenna picks up cellular signals outside the home and then amplifies them inside the house, allowing the user to improve indoor reception.
Up to 60% of interference on mobile networks in Ireland is caused by people using illegal roof antennas and signal boosters. While many devices are advertised as mobile phone amplifiers or repeaters, both amplify the signals of mobile phones. However, only some meet the technical requirements required by ComReg. Illegal devices that do not meet these conditions can cause interference on the mobile network and even other consumer devices. Illegal devices are confiscated by ComReg and users can be prosecuted. By placing an order, you offer to purchase a cell phone signal booster/cell phone on and subject to the following conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. You probably already know the basic operation of a mobile signal. Order one of our GSM (Calls/SMS) range extender kits and say goodbye to cancelled calls.
In Ireland, GSM is usually on a frequency of 900 MHz, and well-known Irish mobile operators such as Vodafone, Meteor or Three use this frequency to provide GSM voice signals to their subscribers. Use one of our kits, they are guaranteed to work with the operators mentioned above. Supported technologies are 3G (UMTS/WCDMA), 4G (HSPA/HSPA+) and LTE.
