At my house, the Verizon signal used to be good enough, but something 
changed and it got worse.  I ended  up getting a Samsung Network 
Extender through Verizon.  This connects to my broadband router, and 
creates a mini cell site just for me.  I have found that it is a big 
improvement.  If I relocate the device to a more central spot in my 
house, I'm sure it will be even better.  For this device, you have to 
have broadband service and it needs a GPS signal.  This means it has 
to be located near a window or you have to use the remote GPS 
antenna.  I can't tell you why exactly it needs a GPS signal, but it 
does.  And it's not just needed at setup time.  If it loses the 
signal it eventually starts to complain.  The only other issue is the 
price, but I complained enough to Verizon that they offered it to me 
for $100.  It was listed as "refurbished" but it looked brand new to 
me.  Here it is:

You would also have to do some research to find out if it works for 
non-Verizon phones.
