Cel-Fi Prime

3G/4G/LTE Smart Signal Booster

Improve 3G and 4G LTE cellular service, eliminate dead zones, and dropped calls with Cel-Fi PRIME. With 80 dB of gain, Cel-Fi PRIME will not only improve cellular coverage, it will also reduce your cell phone’s power requirements and extend its battery life. PRIME offers plug-and-play cellular coverage for a room, storefront, kiosk, apartment or similar space, enabling clear and reliable connections within the coverage area-approximately 1,000 ft2. In an open space, the coverage bubble can be much larger

Cel-Fi PRIME uses Nextivity’s patent-pending electrically steerable antenna technology, addressing pilot pollution issues, and ensuring PRIME outperforms the competition.

Cel-Fi PRIME is CE-certified, and available wherever Bands 1 (2100 MHz) and Band 3 (1800 MHz) are used.
