Default Cell phone signal strength

We recently purchased a home in the mountains & have very little cell phone service (AT&T) there. Up to 2 bars if we're lucky on a clear cool day but if it's rainy/cloudy, 1 bar if we're lucky, usually nothing. Is there a way we can get better service (maybe a cell booster) or something? Verizon is worse there & from what we've seen w/ our friends phones, AT&T seems to be "the best" in this area. Not sure if it makes a difference but we have HughesNet satellite wifi - if there's a way to run through that somehow... Just looking for a way to increase our cell service there.
