Will there be a 4G Network Extender

I currently have the Samsung 4G Network Extender. It works great where it is installed in my home office, but my cell phone reception is terrible in the rest of the house. Since Verizon has rolled out 4GLTE in my area also, will there be a 4G Network extender that I can use?

Thanks

The VZW NE is for 3G only.

If you would like 4G LTE coverage in an area it normally does not reach or penetrate then you can look into antenna and amplifier kits that are sold through 3rd parties.

Examples of 3rd party amplifier and antennas:

Anytime you consider purchasing a wireless network extender you should analyze your environment with a site survey.  Here is a great link that can explain the process of performing a site survey and analyzing the results:

A 4G network extender is pointless. Voices calls and texting don't go over 4G. And the NE uses a broadband conenction in your home and if you have broadband in your home you can just use wi-fi for data.

Sorry about the typo, I currently have a 3G Network Extender. Verizon sold this to me to help with my Cell Phone Signal Strength. It has helped considerably with that problem. It connects to my router, and is positioned in a window. The only problems with it are that it will not work when I have LTE enabled on my iPhone. When I disable LTE I get great signal strength in my home office where the Network Extender is located. Signal strength in the rest of the house isn't great. My Wi-Fi strength is good throughout the house. I had asked Verizon months ago if they were coming out with a 4G network extender and was told they expected to but didn't know when.

Calls are now delivered over LTE, on many of the newer phones. S5, S6, iPhone6, Droid Turbo, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini, Droid Ultra, Moto X, etc.
