Works a Treat


Very frustratingly we were only getting one to two bars reception on our Telstra mobile phones. After talking to numerous Telstra branded outlets and antennae specialist shops, Cel-Fi came out as the most recommended. I live in Perth and the Cel-Fi was delivered to my door within 24hrs of ordering. Out of the box it took 5 mins to plug in, fire up and provide me with strong coverage throughout my house! Very happy.
Very easy to set up. Fast delivery.
Very expensive but works.

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread


We have been to Telstra constantly about the poor reception of our mobile phones at home, as we work from home they are a tool that we need to work. From 1 bar reception to nothing in the house we now have 3 to 4 bars constantly, it is a shame that a friend had to tell us about this product as Telstra just said we can not help you as you live out of the reception area.
We have set up with the optional Nextivity Omni Directional Antenna and the ease of setting the unit up was a bonus, do not hesitate to purchase one of these units.

Great Product , fills the gap left by Telstra lack of mobile signal in our area


Our home is only 10 minutes drive from a major Queensland town but we have only very limited or zero mobile phone coverage and due to mine and my partners job comments we needed a better service , as Telstra haven't provided it we purchased a Cel-fi RS2 Booster which we have found to be a great product and met all our requirements as the sales person told us it would
Great Product

Works well.


Considering the cost, the performance is quite good. Optus and Telstra signals have always been very problematic. Optus at least was happy to help, Telstra wanted 1600$ for a similar unit. Thank you to Network Communications located at Hinkler in Bundaberg, Casey went out on a limb for me, I'm happy with Cel-Fi, and the result.
easy to set up.
units seem to require a big distance between them to maximise signal, can be a problem, due to location of the best avaliable 3g signal.

Really impressed!


I purchased one of these to install on one of our remote mine offices in Northern WA. I was really impressed by a number of things. Primarily, how easy it is to install. Once the antenna was up, the rest of the installation was literally plug and play. I was very happy to hear mobile phones going off and people exclaiming "hey, I've got 5 bars!" from practically no signal previously.
Ease of installation... couldn't be easier to get up and running.
Just make sure you plan ahead. The 2 boxes have to be placed a fair way apart from each other.

Excellent but....


Trialled the Cel-Fi over a weekend. As I have no signal in the house I used an external 5db omni antennae and at the Cel-Fi window unit I had 2 bars and a signal of 8 ~ 9 on the coverage unit. Mobile went from no signal to 4 bars with excellent communication on it. The iPad went from no signal to fluctuating solid 3 to occasionally 4 bars but I could not get onto the internet. I use pre paid Telstra and had ample credit. Tried everything, moving both units several times but no changes, moved antennae location all to no avail. Currently on satellite internet and trying to move away from it hence the Cel-Fi trial.
Easy set up. Great mobile signal boost to allow using it.
Expensive. Can't understand why it would not connect to internet?

Hi Jeff

I am wondering if your internet device is still connected on 4G instead of 3G. Cel-Fi doe snot support 4G. To solve this issue please call the Powertec Telecommunications support department and we will assist.

Can't live without my Cel-Fi


Since moving into our house 4 years ago we have had extremely pour reception on our mobiles, so much so that I complained to Telstra. They did a test and advised that we were in the middle of a pour reception area. After some research I purchased the Cel-Fi unit and the results were instant. Since then, no drop outs, clear reception, everything they promised. Yes, the price is rather high, but given that every phone call made or received dropped out prior to installing it, it is worth every cent.
Extremely reliable and does what it says it will do.

I now have Telstra Mobile Signal!!!


I suffer from poor mobile signal in my home, my signal is great outside but concrete walls stop the signal from coming inside. I bought this product, plugged it in and bam I have full signal. The product does exactly what is says on the box and I recommend it for this will poor signal. The price is a little high than I was wanting, but as I run my business from home it will pay for itself soon.
Boosted my signal as advertised
Price was a bit expective at around $780
