Question

Cell Phone Signal Boosters

I have homes in Ontario, Canada and in Florida. In both cases the signal is not satisfactory, be it inside or out(sometimes 3 or 4 bars and many times only one). Both locations are in either larger cities or on the edge. I have land lines in both places, but would like to get rid of them and use my cell phone(if the signal was reliable and strong enough?

Currently I have a Blackberry Priv and previous phones experienced the same signal issue(dropped calls, weak signal).

My service in Canada is Bell Mobility and the phone seems to prefer T-Mobile when I am roaming in Florida(sometimes AT&T works).

I want to make sure that I get the right booster for both locations as they do not appear to be inexpensive. When I try to research it myself, I get lost in all of the detail.

My home in Canada is three bedrooms and about 2500 square feet. The Florida house is also three bedrooms and a little smaller at 2000 square feet.

Can somebody recommend the right product for these two uses?
