There are a couple if Huawei devices that get good press.  I have an old (no longer available) model that I used in low signal areas with reasonable success.  Placement needed a bit of care to get the best.  Mine only included 3G whereas their current models include 4G too.  About £60 I think.

You’ll need a signal booster for that and they aren’t cheap nor easy to connect into unless you have a phone or MiFi unit with external aerial ports.

I also think on them lines when I'm away in the caravan, but I also miss the days of when I didn't feel the need to be contactable 24/7
I've been on holiday ( doing jobs at home, not a vacation, and it winds me up how many interruptions I get from work and elsewhere while trying. To get things done.
We managed for donkeys years without mobile phones, why are they like an other limb these days.
As a mobile service engineer, no one phones me to say , go home early.
I used to get the where are you ! Now GPS tells them where I am !!!!
And I get, can you call at " such and such on your way home ( which is usually 100 miles out of my way )
