The boost you need
Mobile phone users can look forward to improved call quality with the CEL-FI range of mobile phone signal boosters. Brought to the UK by Nextivity, the boosters are approved for 3G/4G/LTE voice and data and can be used without an Ofcom licence. Products are available for the Vodafone, O2, EE and Three networks (and associated MVNOs). A CEL-FI Wave app allows users to switch networks depending on their requirements.
