I have had my signal assist box since Wednesday. What a difference it has made, Nice to get god signal in my house and no more missed calls.
Thanks BT mobile.
Having now had the booster for a week I can confirm it's efficacy in providing a 3G signal throughout the house. Whilst not perhaps as versatile a solution as O2 TU GO and it does use as much current as a router, but 24 hr access is now guaranteed, so here's a happy bunny!
just got off the phone to 2nd line. apparently giving out "signal assist" boxes was apparently a trial, which has now ended.
please call back in February...
I was given the same response that there were no trial boxes left. I have now cancelled the two lines I had moved to BT, taken the early temination charge as a necessary hit and returned to Voda. Really poor service, but no choice since we could not receive any calls at home and to divert to the home phone meant going outside to get a signal to set the divert.
Perhaps at next contract discussion it will be resolved?
Currently one up for bids on a well known internet auction site. Bid is on £21 at the moment.
It could however be registered to an account, and may not work on another account. I would guess there would be some configuration/routing changed made to the original owners broadband to allow a route back to BT mobile.
Value added services like the discontinued Broadband Talk, and the current SmartTalk service, require config changes.
