A cell phone signal booster can extend your cell phone’s signal beyond the normal service area. This means less time in no-signal areas where you’re cut off from communication and the information you need to get your job done. If your regular routes are taking you through no-signal areas or you’re a long-haul trucker taking long trips, we recommend getting a signal booster for safety and reliability.
Truckers and delivery drivers of all types rely on Wi-Fi. Long-haul truckers and local delivery drivers use Wi-Fi to pick up jobs, file delivery reports, get navigation and road condition updates, and to stay in touch with friends and fellow truckers along the way. CB radios are still used by truckers in some parts of the country, but they’re used mostly for camaraderie and local information.
Good Wi-Fi also helps truckers stay connected to friends, family, and fellow truckers. Trucking requires long days at the wheel and most of your workweek spent away from home, day and night. Reliable Wi-Fi means you can contact people when you need them and when they need you, and that gives you peace of mind.
A few trucking companies provide a satellite internet connection in their rigs, but it’s slower than Wi-Fi in most areas and expensive to get set up. Others provide mobile phones, hotspots, or other internet options for their drivers, but most truckers are on their own finding the best solutions to stay connected to the internet while on the road and during 18-hour layovers.
