Internet/WI-FI Signal Booster Recommendation?

Was wondering which is the best Internet / Wi-Fi Signal Booster to purchase?
Also, can it be applicable to Cell Phone reception?

Nope.
For cell phone reception boost, you need a cell phone booster / amp.
https://www.weboost.com/ (used to be named WIlson Electronics)
They are pretty much the best stuff out there for cell phone reception boosting

I use the Alfa WiFi Camp Pro and I'm very happy with it.

Alfa WiFi Camp Pro -- long range Wi-Fi repeater kit -- R36/Tube-(U)N/A

You can try a search of the forums for "Camp Pro" or "WiFi" also for more information/suggestions.

We use a Wifi Ranger for Wifi and a Weboost 4gm cell booster and are happy with both. The Wifi Ranger was added first. It definitely allows you to pick up wifi from parking lots while stopping along a travel route which helps to take a break,check maps, check mail etc. Campground use is surprising limited. Most campgrounds advertising wifi have ample towers but during the evening no bandwidth due to heavy volume. The booster can't speed up slow wifi from the campground. We often will see additional 30 to 40 wifi but most are secure near campgrounds.
The cell booster is our newer addition and has been getting more use than the ranger. We use it to hot spot wifi using an IPhone when there is no wifi or poor wifi and that seems to be often. The 4gm works very well and can easily take 1-2 bars of 3 g and boost to 3-4 bars lte. We stayed in Devils Garden at Arches National park this summer and had 2-3 bars lte in the evenings (luckily the site was on a hill). The cell booster also provided piece of mind for emergencies to make calls in remote places. This summers trip was 4 weeks thru the 4 corners area and we maintained cell service with the booster 98 % of the trip. Data service was of course less.
Good luck with your upgrades.

I purchased this same thing at the Rally and so far it has been great.

Our 2015 2500HD has GM Wifi, any one boost the signal to reach into the camper? Works if truck is near enough. Wonder if it can be wired switched on without truck key power?

Alfa WiFi Camp Pro. Works great and fantastic customer service. Had what I thought was a problem and they were great to work with. Offered to replace part at no cost. Turned out I didn't need of them to do that. But they were really great to offer.
