Dear Dimers. Please suggest how to increase mobile network strength inside home. We have tried all Vi, Airtel, BSNL, JIO but all has poor network at our home and my family member needs to come out from home to talk over the phone. Please suggest cheap and best possible way to improve signal strength inside home and give the link of the product (if any) to purchase. And whether that item will work for all mobile company (Vi, Airtel, BSNL, Jio) or any specific network provider? Thanks in advance..

No such product, if same issue in all other houses in your locality then blame it on bad luck & if only in your house this issue is there then again bad luck unless you plan on renovating the house anytime soon.

Try complaining about indoor network issues to respective networks. If any of the post paid users complain, they kind of take that complaint serious

Tried Signal boosters ?
Note: These won’t help u much if the network is congested in your location (If both Signals & Speeds are your priorities)

@dealyogi arrange any good broadband connection and connect it with wifi router. then connect your smartphone to that wifi and use “wifi calling” feature on your smartphone.

There are some preconditions like 4-5 family members on same network.

Then that mobile company local network office (not store) can be requested an indoor antinne to boost signal.

you find its common in hospitals usually is an odd shaped device fixed on the ceiling.

If you stay far away from town. Then figure out the closest Jio tower. Ask the locals on the landlord who has rented the place. From him /her you get the local manager / technicians number.
Catch hold of the person to resolve it.

Contact your Network Provider and get one signal booster installed (They can and they will, if u have contacts and willing to pay extra smile )
Unfortunately.. this is the only legal way to install while many still prefer to use random signal boosters (sourced from china) & when the crackdown occurs (which is very rare), they pay extra fine and sometimes jail?
If its US, FCC certified Signal Boosters are allowed to install legally by people themselves( which cause less issues w.r.t other nearby networks)

What!!! I was not aware that we cant install signal booster. Even I dont know how it looks/install/cost etc. But i saw some comments by our fellow dimers stating about signal booster, so was looking for this solution. However it seems its not so simple..

Our officials are as usual lazy to provide certified equipment and even of they do, our people will continue to look for cheaper alternatives (like.. who cares about what issues neighbours face sweat_smile)

But getting the booster installed via Network operator isn’t that complicated (Especially if you live in a building with 3/4 flats)

Here are some thoughts that you may consider.

Most mobiles/sim cards these days by default select 4G/LTE as preferred network, and this particular network has shorter coverage range. You may consider changing network type to 2G, and this can potentially give you decent signal while indoors. The con side of it is data speed is good for nothing in this mode, but it works wonders for calls

And another idea is to go for broadband connection with an option to connect landline (unlimited calls). if 2G works well, then you can put the data requirements on broadband connection. You can also use the landline option with a cordless phone.

use JioLink -

A lot of new Reliance Jio users don’t know this, but the company also offers something known as ‘JioLink’

Understanding JioLink -

JioLink is a 4G LTE modem that is offered by Reliance Jio to help with enhancing the 4G network coverage for a certain region or area. Even though it is a modem, it is not at all like the JioFi. However, the JioLink is a CPE device that can be installed in the house of the user from which a wireless connection with the 4G network can be provided.

The device utilises the company’s 4G network and spreads it over the house/office of the user through which one or multiple devices can connect at the same time. Another big distinction between the JioFi and the JioLink is that the latter is not portable. This device is mostly used by shops or malls where a lot of users are roaming and need stable network connectivity.

Reliance Jio JioLink Plans -

Reliance Jio is offering a total of three plans under its JioLink services. The plans cost Rs 699, Rs 2,099, and Rs 4,199. The Rs 699 plan comes with a validity of only 28 days but offers 5GB daily data along with 16GB bonus data. So the total amount of data that the users get with this plan is 156GB.

The Rs 2,099 comes with a validity of 84 days + 14 bonus days = 98 days. This plan also offers users 5GB of daily data. But on top of the FUP data, users also get 48GB of bonus data. Lastly, the Rs 4,199 plan comes with a validity of 168 days + 28 bonus days = 196 days. Users get the same 5GB daily FUP data; however, there’s also 96GB of bonus data.
