The question was not for me but for a friend who cant get on the internet because her mobile reception is not reliable .She usualy pluged a gadget (about 4 inches long by 1 inch wide and about1/2 inch thick) on the side of her laptop which from a different location enabled her to get on to the internet But since she moved to Billingshurst in Sussex the reception for her mobile is not very good and she says she cant get on to the internet anymore.

Is it possible to some how boost the My3 mobile signal?

So that she could again go on the internet?

Hi,
WELCOME TO JUST ANSWER!! My name isXXXXX will assist you to solve or identify your problem.

As the other expert is offline I will try to help you.First of all you can not boost the signal of a mobile device as this is completely depend on the service provider and their tower locations from which they provide the signal to the mobile devices if you want a better reception it will be better to buy a internet dongle from a service provider whose signal is better in your area.If you wish I can help you to find it for you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
