Are you part of the 19 million mobile customers that Vodafone has in the United Kingdom? Do you have problems with cell-phone 3G signal in your home or office? We’re here to tell you that Cel-Fi can now help!
Cel-Fi now is offering their signal booster devices for Vodafone mobile services. While Vodafone claims coverage of over 80% of the UK population, there’s still 20% struggling to get a good 3G signal. Being the only legal signal booster in the UK, Cel-Fi aims to make itself available to as many mobile networks as possible, and it’s just gained another one.

Wifi is now available in 130 tube stations in London.
Transport for London has partnered with Virgin Media to bring WiFi to 130 London Underground Stations. For people with Virgin Media, EE, T-Mobile, Orange, Vodafone and O2 – your day just got a bit brighter!
If your phone isn’t on one of those providers, never fear, you can purchase a daily, weekly or monthly Virgin Media WiFi pass to get online!
Not only is WiFi making its way to the Underground, but it’s coming to the Overground as well! Partnering with The Cloud, more than 56 London Overground stations now also have WiFi access available.
Now you never have to deal with bad signal and time without constant connection again! Thanks Virgin Media!
While everyone was excited with all the technology at the 2014 International CES Trade Show in Las Vegas, here at Cel-Fi we have been bursting with joy over receiving the prestigious Mobility Award from Compass Intelligence at the show!
Compass Intelligence Mobility Awards 2014
The awards recognise the best mobile computing, wireless data communications, machine-to-machine and eco-friendly products and services offered in the market during the past year. The 2014 ‘Compass Intelligence Awards’ were selected by 60+ industry-leading press and analysts who cover the mobile and wireless market. Cel-Fi by Nextivity was awarded in the Wireless Femtocells/Small Cells/Signal Boosters Category.
Cel-Fi is currently the only consumer booster authorised and approved by the communications commissions in Australia and United Kingdom and is the first consumer booster fully compliant with the new Report and Order for signal boosters as defined by the Federal Communication Commission in the USA.
Our future is looking bright, and we’re looking ahead to bigger and better things!
Cel-Fi does several things:
1. A Cel-Fi device only boosts specific UMTS carrier frequencies (5MHz channels, up to 3) and not the whole band.
2. Cel-Fi will only boost the pre-configured UMTS carrier frequencies if they actually contain a valid UMTS signal and are for the correct network (i.e. the Cel-Fi device can lock onto the UMTS pilot channel, like a phone, and read broadcast information, such as the network identity or ‘PLMN-ID’ then determine what to boost)
3. Cel-Fi automatically limits its boost when close to the base station (based on a calculation of the actual RF path-loss) and so will never boost thermal noise to a level where the base station’s uplink performance will be damaged
4. Cel-Fi is unconditionally stable and will never oscillate – oscillation is usually a common and serious problem with traditional repeaters which causes power spikes that degrade the base station’s uplink performance.
So is the Cel-FI RS2 Signal booster safe? We actually test the Cel-Fi units like a phone for a SAR rating. Anything with a SAR rating of less than 2.0 is defined as ‘touch safe’. Both the Cel-fi window unit and coverage unit have a SAR rating below 2.0.
Technically measuring SAR is usually only done for hand-held or body worn devices so WiFi routers generally don’t have a SAR rating. In any case the power we emit is no greater in general than other consumer wireless networking devices and smart phones.
