My System Specs

Default

I've got a similar issue. The tiny town I live in has virtually 0 reception. I researched a few things and ended up with a Wilson "desktop booster". Turned out that it has like a 3 foot range which is more or less useless. So I ended up getting a proper Wilson booster setup which covers my whole place, but cost over $400...

A cheaper but riskier option might be to try a chinese knock off booster from somewhere like DHGate. Looks like they run about $100. I find that knock offs of electronics like that usually work fine. Just make sure you get 850/1900 band.
