There are two main types of antennas recommended for homes and buildings.
- Similar in appearance to a TV antenna, directional antennas are designed to be roof mounted and must be pointed at a base station to provide higher performance. Directional antennas provide substantially higher performance than omnidirectional types.
- Conversely this type of antenna can receive signals from any direction, and will often take the form of a lengthy tube containing a series of copper elements. We have small desk antennas for when you need something portable (or just to give it an extra boost), and also large roof mounted antennas for permanent house installations.
Which type do I need?
The first step to working out what you require is to scope out the problem - how many bars of service do you have? Is signal strong outside and just poor inside? When it comes to antennas for the house, the best option is always to externally mount the antenna.
The most important thing you can do is work out where your nearest base station is, and how many are in the area. You can find this out by following our Locating a Phone Tower guide. If you couldn't work it out you can book in for a Detailed Site Assessment where we can look after everything for you. In any case, click one of the sections below to continue..
