Signal boosters to solve cable attenuation issues

I have a Tooway set-up provided by skyDSL in France, with an RM5111 modem. Although the connection is usable, it's not up to video streaming and that's an important part of my requirement. The best signal strength I've managed to obtain is an Rx SNR of just over 13.00 dB. However, my real issue is that I have a cable attenuation of about 17.00 dB, which seems very high. I installed my dish on a post some distance from the house because it was too ugly to put on the house facade and the pitch of the roof is E-W. As a result I have a cable run of something over 25m from the dish to the modem. I'm using RG6 coax, so I don't think the cable itself is an issue. Looking online, it would seem that a bidrectional autogain signal booster might fix the problem, but I'm having trouble finding a suitable product for my set-up. A Sonora LA281R-T24 amplifier seems right for the job, but is only available in the US, not Europe. Does anyone have any suggestions for products I might be able to obtain in Europe?

I think maybe is better to you a better coax wire, like LMR400, LMR600- 800..... are expensive but is better than installing a "electronic" tool, in the middle, reading waves and creating again the wire.... never it works well..
