Fixtel supplies and installs Cel-Fi Go boosters for homes, offices, warehouses, factories, retail spaces, and any workplace. We make sure your signal is boosted to ensure day to day business operations runs smoothly and revenue is not adversely affected.


The first question to ask yourself is “How much is it costing your company on missing or not answering calls’? The issue might be costing you much more than you realise as it not easily measured or quantifiable. Deals can be won or lost over a phone call, sales can be lost if a customer cannot contact your business and productivity drops with poor phone reception – all of this means lost revenue opportunity and revenue dropping. Spending the money on installing a Cel-Fi Go Smart Signal Repeater to provide excellent mobile coverage for your business premise means your business runs at premium efficiency. Making the most of every revenue opportunity. And if the issue is for private properties like homes or body corporates or hospitality venues like hotels and retail precincts the impact is on tenancy and value. Both of which will go down with poor mobile coverage. Fixtel is trusted by businesses for all their telecommunication needs and issues. Our site engineers come to your business and conduct a site audit to determine the best installation of the mobile booster/s. Example of simple Installation and supply for one unit start at $3,000. Average install with 2 external antennas, 4 internal units working with two carriers installed using 200 meters of cable with maintenance is around $12,000 These are two examples – one simple install and one more complicated. So the price could be anywhere from $3,000 to $12,000 depending on what is needed. And for larger jobs, the price could be more, with a site inspection and quote we can give exact costs upfront.


Does it matter what carrier?

No, we can install for all carriers, each carrier will need a unit.

Does it matter if its 3G or 4G?

It does not matter if you have 3G or 4G or even both. Optus and Vodafone have multiband and Telstra requires a voice and a data unit for boosting. Our engineers know the specs for every situation and will install accordingly.

Is 5G signal boosting available?

At this stage not yet, but when they do become available all we need to do is use the cabling set up or run another cable to use the 5G.

Does a mobile signal booster fix a dead spot?

Remember it’s a booster and can only boost the existing signal, our engineers will be able to confirm during the site audit if it’s truly a dead spot or a very low signal.

Do you charge for Site Inspections?

A site inspection costs $500 but is fully refundable with purchase and installation. A site inspection is vital to understand the problem. How poor the reception is, what carrier unit is needed, how many units are needed. It’s much more than just coming out and viewing the property. And we cannot install Cel-Fi boosters without a site inspection.

Do you need floor plans?

Yes, in most cases we need floor plans of the building/floor and need to know how many levels to the roof. It’s also helpful to tell us if any buildings or structures built around the building recently?

Does each unit require its own cable to the roof?

Yes, and it depends on your carrier. Telstra units require two units – one for voice and one for data. Vodafone units can do both voice and data. Optus units can do both voice and data. Please note – In a Body Corporate environment Fixtel will need permission from the body corporate to put units on the roof
