Extending cell range

Is the range for wireless broadband about the same as cell tower range? Since most of our cell phones have a built-in antennae smaller than my - well, they're small, OK? - can cell phone range or wireless broadband range be extended by any significant amount with a better antennae mounted 40 feet in the air? I currently lose cell coverage from 0 - 7 miles offshore, depending on how close I am to civilization, but if I could triple or quadruple that with a better antennae and a two-way signal booster.....

I'm not a techie - I press 7 or 10 buttons and start talking.

John
