I always thought that mobile hot spots connected to cell towers using cell frequencies, so if that's accurate, a cell phone booster should work the same for a hotspot.

I would suggest you check out the following website.
It will answer all your questions.

I will also add that I have a CelFi mobile X booster that works great!

We just purchased the Verizon Jet Pack, dumped CenturyLink and use it at home and traveling. We just completed a month long trip to Co. Wyoming and S Dakota from Florida. It was great to have access to Trip Advisor, Dyrt, RV Parky, Roadtrippers and live weather radar while driving down the road for reviews on campsites and places of interest, dining.
One thing with the Jet Pack is the bait and switch with data. We purchased a “unlimited” plan but found out that after you use your allowed 4g they slow it down drastically, which really didnt effect us.
On the return trip, in Missouri in the middle of nowhere, had a new Bosch Alternator fail, did a Google search while watching my voltmeter drop driving down the interstate, NEXT EXIT, A CHEVY DEALERSHIP! Saved our butt big time.

I own 4 different Wilson boosters (although none 4G) and recommend their products.

Where I usually get weak signal, I mostly stop dropping calls and having voice quality issues.

One of the boosters is installed in a very low lying woody area in the mountains, and you can make calls next to the booster, while it's almost impossible to make calls in the vicinity.

I may buy a 4g booster, and wish I spent the extra $100/200 when I bought the 'whole house" 3G booster a few years back (as I now use 4G as backup internet in my remote cabin)

I recommend a 4g booster. As far as hotspots go, if you plan on using one a lot, get one to preserve your phone's battery life. For occasional use, phone might be fine.

Upgraded to the posted enhanced antenna while also increasing the distance to the internal antenna and the improvement was very Noticeable!

I’m not thinking about replacing the internal antenna and see how much better it gets

Tks for the info on the new antenna!!

Cell phone signal booster is same as mobile hotspot booster but if the signal is very weak outside, I recommend buying the most powerful kit available.

Here's the most powerful one not recommended before for improving reception in home:

Here's one that is most powerful but for use inside vehicles:

Both above kits boost reception for all cell phone carrier networks, at the same time.

I got a Weboost cell booster with the OTR antenna and it works amazingly well. Cost is about $500 and I keep my iphone in a Rammount xgrip within about 2” of the internal antenna. The closer you keep your phone the more powerful the signal you will get.
