weboost: Boosting Signal & Getting You More Bars

The Show Stopper & Magical Performer

weBoost is the leading brand of cell phone signal boosters designed and manufactured by Wilson Electronics.

Cell phone boosters are electronic devices that pull in weak 3G & 4G LTE signals, amplify it (up to 32X), and then send the boosted signal to your home or vehicle.

Nearly 90% of Americans own a cell phone. 68% of them are smartphones. And about 15% of Americans ONLY use their cell phones to connect to the internet.

With the increasing speeds of 4G LTE and the arrival of 5G that promises to be 10 to 100 times faster, the jump to cell phone-only has increased as customers don’t like to double-dip with paying bills to broadband landline internet (like AT&T Uverse or Comcast) and also monthly cell phone bills, especially when unlimited 4G LTE plans cover their needs.

But There's The Problem We’re Still Dealing With

Unfortunately, we’ve all had these problems with our cell phones before:

  • Dropped calls
  • Poor voice
  • Slow internet
  • Stuck text messages
  • Spotty coverage
  • Low cell phone bars

These are symptoms of poor cell phone signals. And they are absolutely frustrating when trying to go about your daily life. Forget about the lost of convenience, business, or response to an emergency, it’s about the interruptions.

Routines should flow. However, stuff happens. We’re adults, we understand. But, when one constant interruption piles on top of another, multiplied by our daily routine, what begins with annoyance eventually snowballs into distraction and endless frustration.

In today’s digital world, a little peace of mind and flow is what we need - like a good morning cup of coffee (or tea) and a nice quiet evening with a book or favorite TV show.


So What’s Causing All These Problems

Well, despite the complaints, not all blame is to be placed on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint. There are specifi factors that are out of their control. However, with a cell phone signal booster you CAN overcome some of those challanges, but more on that later.

Cell Tower Distance

This is mostly a problem for users in the country side in remote or rural areas. Being far from the cell phone tower means the signal isn’t able to reach your cellular device.

Interference

For rural folks, this is trees, hills, and mountains. For city folks, it’s tall structures, buildings, and other urbanized surroundings. Cell phone signals are basically radio waves (the AM/FM kind). They’re wonderful at covering long distances, but terrible at integrity when passing through and bouncing off objects between the cell tower and your phone.

Building Material

Metal, glass, concrete, thick walls, insulation, and energy-efficient material can interfere with cell signals. So, even if you live right near a carrier tower, if you have obstructing building material, it won’t get to your phone.

Weather

Yes, even a rainy day, snowstorm, and lightning storm can disrupt your signal.

Other People

Cell towers can support hundreds of users. However, get them all calling or using their phones at once and now it’s looking like a scene from a National Geographic film on droughts: a fight where all the animals are battling for a sip of water.

It only takes ONE of those problems to affect your cell phone signal. And if you COMBINE any of them?

Endless, endless frustration.


How a weBoost Cell Phone Signal Booster Can Solve Everything

First, let’s answer some questions. Why get a cell phone signal booster? Why weBoost?

A cell phone booster does 3 thing with 3 simple parts:

  • The outside antenna pulls in the weak 3G & 4G LTE signals. Depending on your model, boosters are powerful enough to communicate with towers several thousand feet away from your home or vehicle to provide you with consistent and reliable service.
  • The amplifier takes the signal and boosts it up to 32X.
  • The inside antenna sends the enhanced signal to the areas in need inside your home or car.

They effectively provide the following:

  • Crystal-clear calls
  • Constant connection
  • Fast internet
  • Quickly deliver and receive text messages
  • Wider coverage
  • More bars

Okay, so why weBoost? That’s easy.

weBoost is the leading cell phone signal booster brand across the globe. 2-year warranty. Free shipping. Award-winning products. A legacy brand name backed by Wilson Electronics.

Most importantly, designed AND made in the USA. This ensures for the highest quality in engineering, design, and customer service.


But Will this Work for Me?

All weBoost signal boosters work for all carriers on all cell devices. Yes, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and others. Yes, all cell phones, smartphones, iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, iPads, tablets, etc.

They’re all backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. Anything happens. They’ll take care of it.

BUT...

For a cell phone signal booster to work the way you expect it to, there must be usable cellular signal outside - even just a sliver of service. A cell phone booster can improve signal, but it cannot create what isn’t there. It’ll heal the injured but not raise the dead.

So the most important thing that you have to do before investing in a signal booster is finding out your signal strength. Here’s what you need to know and how to do it.


Finding Your Signal Strength

The number of cell phone bars on your phone? They’re not scientific. In fact, they’re subjective.

There’s no industry standard on cell phone bars. So, for example, what’s 1 bar on Sprint could be 2 bars on T-Mobile or 3 bars on US Cellular DESPITE having the exact same signal and the exact same speeds.

It’s left in the hands of your carrier to judge what’s low bars and full bars.

We’re not going to play that game. The most accurate and technical way is to look at decibel (dB) reading. Cell phone signals operate at a dB frequency of -50 dB to -110 dB. -50 dB is great signal, full bars. -110 dB is virtually no signal, a dead zone. And everything else in between ranges from having good to average to poor signal.

This dB frequency is true for all cell phones and all carriers. Once you understand your dB reading, then you'll understand just exactly how strong your signal is.

Here’s how to find your dB Signal

For iPhone Users

  1. Go into Phone Mode
  2. Dial and Call *3001#12345#*
  3. You'll enter Field Test Mode
  4. Drag down your notifications bar and you will see your dB reading in the left-hand corner.

For Android Users

  1. Access Settings
  2. Then General
  3. Go to About Phone
  4. Network or Status
  5. You should see your dB Value

For other phones email us at sales@signalboosters.com. We’ll try to help you find your dB reading.

Ok, so once you have a dB reading, then you’ll know if a cell phone booster will help you. Anything between -50 dB to -90 dB, a signal booster will give you great results. Between - 91 dB to -100 dB, you’ll get good to ok results. -101 dB to -110 dB, mediocre to no boost.

In other words, if you’re living in a fringe area with barely any signal, you might have to get the most powerful booster to get the best results. Just think of signal boosters like a megaphone. A boosted whisper is better than a whisper but not better than a boosted shout.


Other Things You Need to Know

Each cell phone signal booster is able to amplify 3G and 4G LTE signals. Some are even 5G ready! In areas where 3G is the only signal avaialble, the booster will improve your talk, text, and basic 3G internet. On the other hand, in 4G areas, it'll improve talk, text, high-speed 4G LTE internet, and 3G signals for 3G devices.

There are two types of weBoost signal boosters: home and vehicle boosters.

We've compiled a list of weBoost signal boosters to help you choose the best booster for your needs. This way poor cell reception, dropped calls, unsent texmessages, and slow internet, can be a thing of the past.


weBoost Signal Boosters for Homes and Offices

  • Up to +60 dB Gain
  • $399.99

The Home Room is a budget-friendly signal booster designed to improve cell phone signal where it matters. It’s ideal for 1-2 rooms, apartments, and small homes and offices. With perfect outside signal, the booster can cover areas up to 1, 500 sq ft. On average, however, most people get about 200-500 sq ft of coverage. Many customers who've purchased the Home Room due to spotty signal, are now getting 2-3 more bars of service, allowing them to make and receive calls, send text messages, facetime, stream movies, and browse the web in areas they couldn’t do so before.

weBoost Home Studio

It's designed to work with all US carriers and is compatible with all cellular devices (smartphones, tablets, and hotspots). Many customers have seen a dramatic improvement in their cell signal with the Drive X, even in off the grid areas where the reception was extremely poor.

weBoost Drive Reach

Overview of the weBoost Drive Reach:

  • Boosts Talk, Text, Internet, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • Designed for Cars, Trucks, SUVs, RVs, Fleet Vehicles, and Boats
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • $499.99

The Drive Reach is weBoost’s most powerful multi-carrier signal booster. The kit includes a magnetic mount antenna and a low-profile indoor antenna for easy installation. The amplifier's sleek, metal design, makes it easy to dissipate heat during operation.

Similar to the Drive X, it can boost up to four devices at the same time. But, unlike the Drive X, it's able to reach towers 2x further for twice the signal strength, making it a great performer in rural areas. In fact, many of our customers say that they’re getting at least 2 to 3 more bars in areas where they did not have a consistent connection prior to installing the Drive Reach.

weBoost Drive Reach RV

Overview of the weBoost Drive Reach RV:

The kit includes a desktop antenna that can be easily placed on any flat surface, as well as an RV antenna that must be mounted to the roof or railing support post with the included brackets. The installation will take a little longer than with the regular Drive Reach, but it’ll be worth it. With its 29.5 dBm in uplink power, it can reach far distanced towers to provide you and your passengers (up to four devices) with a reliable connection in rural, suburban, and urban areas.

weBoost Connect RV 65

Overview of the weBoost Drive Reach:

  • Boosts Talk, Text, Internet, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Stationary Use Only
  • Up to +65 dB Gain
  • $649.99

The Connect RV 65 is weBoost’s most powerful stationary signal booster. It features a maximum amplification gain of 65 dB, providing you with the best possible signal, even in areas with extremely poor reception.

Most RV boosters use omnidirectional doner antennas to capture incoming signals from every direction. The Connect RV 65, however, uses a directional antenna to reach further distances and grab a stronger signal. The antenna can be easily mounted to the included 25 ft telescoping pole. For optimal performance, the antenna should be pointing at the closest tower and the pole must be fully extended. When you’re ready to move the RV, simply take down the mounting pole, store it inside your RV, and re-mount it once you reach your next destination.

The booster is designed to work with any RV, but remember, it can only be used while stationary. If you would rather have a reliable signal while driving, look into the weBoost Drive Reach RV or the weBoost Drive X RV.
