We have the Glowmex. It’s a WiFi hot spot that allows cell reception up to about 20 miles from the tower. It requires you to set up an account like a cell phone. It does not work with Verizon. AT&T and T-Mobile seem to be the preferred providers. When choosing the provider and plan, beware of data usage. I think T-Mobile has an unlimited data plan, AT&T does not. However, if you have a Direct tv account, you can stream all the Direct tv programs without a data charge, so long as you access Direct tv through the Direct tv app. If you connect through a smart tv, and not through the app, data usage charges apply. The Glomex does not boost the normal cell signal to your phone, it only creates WiFi. Hope this is helpful.
