How to Troubleshoot Your Globe AirBoost

What is Globe AirBoost?

AirBoost is an indoor cellular signal booster designed for small spaces that have weak to no indoor 3G signal coverage that’s approximately 10-15 meter radius.


It will give you an independent source of 3G network signal that your mobile phone can latch on to for your family’s call, text and mobile browsing needs.


You’ll need to have a Globe At Home internet connection with at least 5 Mbps speed that the AirBoost can latch on to.

Where do I set up my Globe AirBoost?

Position Globe AirBoost in an uncluttered area with good airflow, two meters from the ground, at least five (5) meters away from the window or farther.


It should also be one (1) meter away from other wireless devices (example: Wi-Fi, wireless landline phones).

How do I know if my AirBoost is properly working?

You’ll know it’s working properly if the LED light indicator shows a steady, green light.

My Globe Airboost doesn’t seem to work properly; how do I troubleshoot this?
