Further information

Does it matter who my broadband provider is?

No, Signal Boost simply uses your Broadband Wi-Fi signal and it doesn’t matter who supplies the broadband.

How many Signal Boost phones can be used at any one time?

This depends on your broadband speed.  You need a broadband speed of around 80Kb/second for a call.  If your broadband is faster than 240Kb/second you can connect up to three calls at the same time. 

How can I tell on my bill which calls were made using Signal Boost?

Calls made using Signal Boost will be marked as ‘Homezone’ on your bill.  We use the term Homezone to describe the coverage that is provided by Signal Boost.

What happens if I’m on a call and move in or out of range of my Wi-Fi?

As long as your phone has Signal Boost coverage or an EE signal, your call will continue uninterrupted.  If your phone can’t pick up either of these signals whilst on the call, the call will disconnect.    

Once it’s up and running all you have to do is leave WiFi active on your phone and you’ll be able to send and receive calls and texts as normal.  Using Signal Boost doesn’t cost any extra – calls and texts are charged at your usual plan rates.  To use the internet on your phone, you’ll need to use your home WiFi to use data.
