They've all stopped them, I used to have a EE signal Box and it was awesome, but everyone everywhere are tightening their belts and withdrawing services.

All the consumer network sold mobile booster kit also used broadband to connect back to the mobile provider. Just instead of WiFi signal they broadcast a 3G one. So you still have the same dependency.

Even if they still worked, as 3G is being switched off soon anyways so they'd have to be withdrawn.
