When is Verizon Wireless going to have a 4G LTE Network Extender? (Signal Booster)

When is Verizon going to have a 4G LTE Network Extender?  (Signal Booster).  The Samsung Network Extender (SCS-2U01) is old and works on 3G.  When are you going to have something that takes advantage of the 4G network.  You can go to Samsung's website and they have a model for the 4G LTE network and it's label for Verizon.

Most home broadband connections still are pretty inadequate to consider running an LTE connection over. The idea is to also allow the phone to make and receive calls and texts (which route over the 3G/CDMA network, which the Samsung repeater does). For data service, Wi-Fi is a more suitable option.

If you need a repeater, purchase something from Wilson that can handle LTE. These would also allow you to use Voice over LTE.

Look into a Wilson 3G/4G booster.  Not much more expensive  (if even) than that Samsung Extender.

4G LTE is for your data. You need internet to run a Network extender. If you have internet you would use Wifi for your data. a 4G LTE network extender is just redundant

True, a 4G booster is best for areas with no cable/DSL.

But then how would they have internet to make the device work?

The extender would need another ISP.  The booster (Wilson) would not, it would only require a permit/license/permission/registration.

That would work for the Wilson units. I was directing it more towards a Verizon unit

That holds true until Voice over LTE is released. Best to invest in repeating LTE regardless of whether or not it is going to be used for data. Just don't run It over the home Internet connection.
