    Signal Booster

    We were unsure about this booster for dropped calls. This is amazing, it took me from 3g and 2 bars to 4g and 3 bars. It makes my broadband work at 4g, I could barely get into any of my apps now I can stream anything with no waiting. I would recommend this booster to anyone having a weak signal, it works. We are in a 30 foot RV and it works when you find the right spot to put it.

    Must have cell booster for rural areas

    We was very hesitant in purchasing this item. This is a amazing cell booster. We live in a very rural and mountain region. We are located down in a hollow in between mountains. The nearest cell tower is 4 air miles from our home. We had none to 1 bar outside and almost never a bar inside of the home. We done a draft install to see if we would get service inside and we did. The weekend done a permanent installment which did take some time approx 2 to 3 hours. We had a tall mount for the outside antenna. The booster is not made to be in a attic so we got a pass threw plastic shown in the picture, pass the cable threw. After installment and adjustment we now get 2 to full bars in the home. Even after full tree blooming still get 2 to full bars of LTE. This works on any cell service. We are amazed that we are getting this strong of service. We did get geek squad protection. Highly recommend cell booster especially rural areas. Waited a few months before we posted a review to test this booster.

    Great way to get better cell phone connections

    This cell phone booster works with out WiFi. It boosted our bars from 1 to 3 and sometimes we get 4 bars! It does not take some time to find the right position on your house. Highly recommended for people who live in the country without broadband internet and bad cell phone reception.

    Unit does a good job

    Unit was delivered on time. Installation was straight forward. It took longer than the 1-2hours WeBoost said it would take but that was because of where I put the exterior and interior antenna and the amplifier box. Temporarily, hooked up system and tried before doing the real installation.

    I do have phone reception in most of my 3000 sq ft house. Before installation I could not make any calls in house. Now have 2-3 bars at most places. Only have 2-3 bars at the exterior antenna so I did not expect much better. There is poor signal at 90degrees to the interior antenna.

    I am quite happy with the unit.

    Excellent Product to improve 4G signal in car!

    I have been facing signal issues in certain areas of my office route. I was looking for cell phone signal booster for car. I found out a solution with weboost Drive Reach vehicle signal booster kit. It came with booster & bracket, outside antenna, inside antenna, power supply, few adhesives to place the antennas and installation guide.

    Setup is very quick and easy. I have installed the outside antenna first based on the instructions provided in the installation guide. I have cleaned the roof of the car, put the adhesive and placed the antenna. I ran the cable into the rear side of the door. After that I have installed the inside antenna on dash with provided Velcro 2 sided adhesive strip. Please make sure that “mounting side” labeled side goes to adhesive stip. After installing the antenna, I have connected the cables to booster. I have connected the power supply cord to the end of the booster. Please make sure that 12V DC power supply is used to connect the power adapter.

    I have started the car to make sure that everything configured correctly. The light is solid green on booster which means everything looks good with respect to setup. To test this product, I drove to my office next day morning and I have noticed my cell phone signal is stronger than ever after installing weboost drive reach in my car. There is no call drop in dead zones and call quality is great as well.

    The booster's antenna reaches out to the cell tower to access voice and data signals. The booster receives the outside signal from the outside antenna. The booster amplifies the outside signal 32x, and sends it to the inside antenna. The inside antenna broadcasts the boosted signal to devices inside the home. I take lot of office calls in car and many times the calls get disconnected during important meetings. I am impressed with weboost drive reach as it improved the cell signal dramatically and there is no drop calls after using this product.

    I highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking to improve cell signal in vehicle.

    Great Concept, Effectiveness Unknown

    The Weboost Drive Reach Mobile Cellular Booster Model 470154 has been a bit of mystery to me and I must admit that I have taken quite a bit longer (much longer than I like) to review this product to make sure I have enough time to evaluate it thoroughly. After a few full weeks of testing, I still cannot confirm or deny it's effectiveness.

    I live in a somewhat remote area where cell service is off and on. Since installing this booster, I still have low signals and dropped calls in the same spots a before. At the same time, I have had others tell me that my call sounded clearer than usual in other areas. I have driven all over the area testing this product, trying to get a read on if it is actually boosting my signals or not... Conclusion: Unknown!

    As for the installation, this was quick and easy to do. The 5-step instructions on/in the packaging are clear and the manual is not need for most people. It took less than 10 minutes to have everything installed, wires tucked away, and the power on. Only the power cord is visible as I had to run it under the floor mat in the back to a power outlet. The other 2 wires are hidden and not in the way.

    PROS

    - Easy install.

    - Plug and play once installed

    - Offer cell signal boost and 4G LTE signal boost from the same unit

    - No wires to plug in to a phone.

    - The power cord offers a USB connection to plug other accessories/phones in if you are limited on power plugs in your vehicle.

    CONS

    - Dropped calls and poor connections still exist. Must have a good signal to get a boost which seems to defeat the purpose of this product.

    - 3 wires (cell, 4g, and power cord) are required for this unit. This can be a mess if you do not tuck the wires away well. Possible damage if wires are pulled or snagged.

    - Wires are straight where the connect to the unit. Would have been a better choice for a 90 degree angle to help reduce wire clutter.

    I personally would not recommend this product based on my experience, however, others might have a better experience here cell service is stronger.

    Great around home, Can't wait for the boonies.

    I've had this a few weeks now. There are two places between work and home where I regularly drop calls. With this booster on I have yet to lose a call. With it off I still lose calls periodically as I always have. There is also a club at a nearby lake where we frequently can't talk at all. With the booster on we have been able to talk every time we have turned the booster on.. We recently traveled from Northeast Texas to Houston through two areas where we usually drop calls. We both made calls through the areas where we regularly lose a signal and neither of us dropped a call. I am enclosing two screenshots of a place I usually drop calls with the booster on and off and you can see the difference in the number of bars at the top right. I have several other screenshots but can only load 2 here. There are several places I travel every year that I lose the signal altogether but I have yet to go this year, I can't wait to see the expected improvement. I will update after I travel this Summer. I accidentally left the antenna on at the car wash. It did not budge. I had a sinking feeling as I remembered that it was still up there and was relieved to see that it did not budge (I'm not recommending that it be left there through the car wash).

    Significant Signal Boost

    The Weboost Drive Reach Mobile Cellular Booster Model 470154 provides a drastic improvement in cellular reception. When in areas that have lower reception and signal quality, the Weboost Drive Reach Mobile Cellular Booster helps to ensure you stay connected to your apps and contacts.

    The device is easy to setup, and the improvement to signal quality is immediate. As with many people, signal quality is very important to me. I travel to areas where the cellular signal might be low which impacts work. In one instance, my device was struggling to get consistent connection to the network as the signal was fluctuating between no bars and 2 bars of reception. Once I connected the signal booster, my throughput on the phone went from 1-3 mbps to over 92mbps.

    I highly recommend this device. You will have much clearer calls and connections to you applications while in cellularly challenged areas.

    It works!

    Earlier this month we went on a road trip to Ennis, Texas for the bluebonnet trail. I downloaded the app on my phone to follow the map, and then suddenly neither my wife's or my phone had signal.

    It was time to put the booster to a test.

    We stopped, put the antenna up and boom! Full bars!!!

    The instructions were easy to follow and setup was painless.

    Cell Phone Booster Kit

    The weBoost Drive Reach is vehicle cell signal booster kit. It works with all US carriers, and is designed to make your cell phone signal more reliable and increase data speeds. After having this installed in my vehicle, I do believe that this product has “boosted” my cell phone signal.

    What’s in the kit: It comes with an exterior antenna, a booster, and an internal antenna.

    How does it work: The external antenna receives the cellular signal. It carries the signal to the booster, which then send the signal to the internal antenna. The internal antenna broadcasts an amplified signal throughout the vehicle.

    The installation: I opted for a professional installation through Best Buy. They had my car for less than 2 hours. The external antenna is magnetic mounted, but can be done with adhesive which was how mine was installed. The external antenna must be mounted 12 inches away from any other antenna. The booster gets installed somewhere in the vehicle (under a seat, cargo area, wherever it will properly fit). Mine was installed in the cargo bay of my CUV. The power for the booster is a DC plug (cigarette lighter). Rather than use my DC power plug I chose to purchase another part for about $15 and have it hardwired to my car. The internal antenna was adhesive mounted to the driver’s side pillar between the passenger doors. It was mounted on the lower half since I have side airbags. That’s it.

    The result: I get an extra bar or so of cellular reception while in my car.

    Overall: I think that this product does make my cellular reception a little more reliable. It’s not designed to magically fix all cellular reception problems. If there is no signal to begin with there is nothing to amplify. It does amplify what signal it gets. As far as installation issues, the installer did mention that the antenna cable was kind of short. Something to consider before you plan to locate the booster. All in all, I think this product will be helpful to keep me in contact with everyone as I travel. weBoost makes these for the home, and I am considering purchasing one of those as well.

    Great signal booster!

    Its a great and strong signal booster, worth the work to install it. I had to get help from a family member to get it installed on my small car. I mean, you can install it quick, but if you want everything neatly (like under weather stripping and hiding cables) you may need help and/or hire one of those stereo installing places to install it. It wasn't too bad between me and my cousin.

    You place the main unit inside your car, hiding it from sight, I put mine under the passengers seat, and the small unobtrusive antennas outside (this one has a very strong magnet, however remember to tuck it in when going to a car wash!!) and inside. Then you root the cables accordingly, I hid them under the car's door and windows weather stripping. Then connect both and then the main unit to the cigarrette lighter plug for power (I guess one could rig a permanent wire to a fuse I guess to further hide it, my cousin suggested that but we didn't, just an idea). Once powered it should get a green light showing its working ok. Please, remember, you must register this booster with your cell phone carrier!!! Mine made me download a form and fill out and sent to them, I still have not heard back from them, but that's what they required, yours may vary, ask them!!

    It works great, I mainly had a huge problem at my job (which is in the middle of a large golf course, and lakes) where I could not get any data. I mean, I had bars, and could call and text but anything data related like browsing web, emails, videos etc nada! With this booster now and I can use data at great speeds at my job! I highly recommend it for any one having spotty connections and signal!

    It works

    I didn’t think it would work. I bought it with the intentions of returning it. It does work. If you are frustrated with your phone losing the signal or the internet this will probably help you. I was having problems with my phone at my job. It was only when the Construction company was working next door. I don’t know how they did it but when they showed up I could not use my phone for anything. My phone works now with the signal booster. I just bought the bigger RV/Truck antenna. I’m hoping that gets an even better signal.

    weBoost - Drive Reach OTR
    Description

    Do you experience slow internet speeds, dropped calls, and the inability to send and receive texts while you’re on the road? With the weBoost Drive Reach OTR, you can improve your cell signal. Wherever work takes you. The Drive Reach OTR uses the latest technology to pick up an existing cell signal, route it the booster, then broadcast that amplified signal into your truck’s cab. To install the Drive Reach OTR, first select where to mount the outside antenna. This is the most important step as it determines the performance of your booster. Check that the antenna is at least 12 inches from all other antennas and openings to avoid interference. The antenna can be secured using the included 3-way mount on a rack or mirror arm. Use the modular mast extensions to ensure the right height for your antenna, from 7.5 to 40 inches. Once the outside antenna is installed, run the coax cable behind the weather stripping of an opening into your cab. Next, mount the inside antenna by using the adhesive strips to attach it to the dash or a seat. We recommend keeping the inside antenna at least 12 inches away from where you’ll most often use your phone. Then run the coax cable to the booster. Plugin both the outside and inside cables. Now, plug in the power cord to the booster. Finally, plug the power adapter into your vehicle’s power supply and turn on the booster. When the green light is on, it’s working. All coax cable needed for installation is provided.

    5 Features
  • Powerful truck booster: The weBoost Drive Reach OTR powerfully boosts signal for fewer dropped calls, better voice quality, faster data speeds, increased hotspot capability, and improved audio and video streaming on the road, even in remote areas
  • DIY installation: All components needed for installation come in one package with a 12VDC power cord that plugs into a power adapter and easy-to-follow instructions
  • Coverage for all trucks: Designed to enhance signal coverage for all trucks with a 3-way antenna mount, spring, mast extensions up to 40”, mounting hardware, side exit adapter, threadlocker, and cable
  • All-terrain, all-weather tough: The outside antenna meets current U.S military and NEMA IP66 standards, meaning it can withstand extreme shaking while being protected from dust, oil, and water
  • Adjustable height: Antenna can be configured into multiple lengths from 7.5-40 in.

    American made quality!

    TL;DR review: The weBoost Drive OTR is an expensive, effective (within its limits/constraints), USA made, booster that could bring you peace of mind to have. It is the most powerful consumer grade vehicle cellphone booster available from weBoost. It has excellent build quality and includes most all of what users will need for install aside from vehicle specific brackets, adapters, etc. It does appear in my limited experience thus far to be yielding improvements to my cell reception and data usage in remote areas.

    Long review:

    The weBoost Drive OTR is a high-quality built system that, likely in response to user reviews on the previous model, includes most all accessories one could need to effectively mount this device. On the previous discontinued model of this cellphone booster, many of the accessories included here had to be purchased separately. This model is best mounted to a semi-truck or an appropriately equipped passenger vehicle that has a roof rack, bed rack, or other custom mounting bracket option to be able to mount a half-inch bolt antenna assembly like this securely. This is NOT the SKU you are looking for if you are seeking a magnetic mounted outside antenna included in the package; this assembly will need to be bolted securely in some fashion to your vehicle. With this information in mind covered, here is my experience.

    I installed this antenna on my 2015 Toyota Tacoma crew cab SR5 4X4 4.0L V6. I was seeking a device to help me maintain cellular connection while on long road trips and in the outdoors on overland and hunting trips--delivering peace of mind that I would have improved cell reception in the event of an emergency or need to download an offline map on the go. I installed the outside antenna on a special antenna bracket adapter that attaches to my previously installed driver side ditch light bracket made by Cali Raised LED (see my pictures). To mount the outside antenna, I used the spring base, coax cable side-exit adapter, the 13" mast extension, included blue Loctite, and the nuts and washers mixed between the included 3-way mount and the spring base. The total height of my setup from mount to tip of the antenna is 26”. All of the listed accessories and more were included in this package. I felt this combination with the spring base was best as I wanted to ensure this antenna would clear my roof top for maximum reception, not be too tall, while having some give and flexibility to bend in a safe part of the assembly when it gets hit and pushed around by low branches etc. I don't have much concern about this happening as the antenna has an IP66 and MIL-STD-810 rating for weatherproof and impact performance, but it is important to do what you can to help prevent unneeded stresses to the antenna assembly as there could be other stress points in your mounting setup that could become an issue if they sustain repetitive or excessive forces. The spring base helps to absorb and dissipate the normal vibrations and movement caused by the road and wind while driving. I routed the outside antenna coax cable next to my hood hinge into my engine compartment and pulled the cable through my firewall into my engine compartment--zip-tying and tucking away the excess neatly in the engine compartment as this cable is LONG at 16ft.

    I installed the Drive Reach OTR cellular amplifier under my seat using the included sticky-backed Velcro strip. This securely mounted the snap-on base of the module under my seat to the carpet without any sliding or other issues so far. The inside antenna I mounted on the driver side center console using the double-sided adhesive strip; adhering to the instructions of ideal distance from where your phone(s) will be used in the vehicle and keeping plenty of distance from the outside antenna to prevent oscillation of the signals. The cigarette plug 12V DC power adapter was plugged into my 12V DC outlet and I also routed that cable underneath the center console trim to keep it neat and tidy. With some careful cable management and neat tucking away of all of the cables, I managed a clean install and got the "green light" on the module, indicating that it is working per the manufacturer.

    Now, the big reveal, how is it working? Well, that is where it this review gets difficult for me. It appears to be helping somewhat with increasing my phone call quality and reception while I am out in the woods away from civilization, but it is not producing the staggering night and day differences in data speed etc. I had, admittedly ignorantly, hoped for.

    To test it, I placed a call to a family member while I was out in area with poor reception with this module turned on and with it turned off to compare the quality. The person I called stated that they heard a difference in my voice call with less static and popping noises when I was using the weBoost. In trying to gather objective data, I downloaded the Speed Test app to my iPhone App to see if there was a difference in the download and upload mbps speed with this device. My results were inconclusive as it seemed like my results were the same whether I had it turned on or not. When I drove out into the woods and lost all but a bar or two on extended network collection, I was unable to initiate the speed test whether I had the weBoost turned on or not. Keep in mind, I have followed all manufacturer instructions for install and I ensure the device had the solid green light on indicating that it was working. WeBoost advises that bars on your phones screen are not the preferred method for effectively measuring the performance of this device. Some reviewers have stated that they noticed increased bars with the use of this device, I did not notice this myself.

    One situation in which I really recognized an improvement with this device was utilizing the hotspot on my iPhone 8 to browse the internet on my Macbook Pro while at my grandpa’s house. He lives in area that gives spotty cell reception at best; one of those places you walk around the house trying to get a good signal so you can make a call. When I brought my laptop over to help him research some building supplies, I utilized the weBoost in my truck. It really was about a noticeable difference in the load time of web pages and the snappiness of the interactions with the pages I was on.

    One other topic I wanted to address was making sure to register this with your wireless network provider. I followed the instructions in the included installation guide booklet (pages 13 and 14) to register my booster with Verizon. The information needed, including the FCC ID for the device was on page 16 of the booklet; you also want to be sure to have your serial number on hand for the device. The process took me less than 5 minutes and keeps in compliance with the usage of such a device.

    Overall, this is an expensive, occasionally but not entirely effective, piece of hardware that could bring you peace of mind in remote regions. I see the decision of this purchase being relative to how much you operate in remote areas or on long stretches of highway across large regions away from good cell tower reception. For once a season trip-takers, I feel like this wouldn't yield a good cost/benefit ratio. For truck drivers or overlanders who are on the road all the time traversing through all sorts of remote or poorly connected areas, I think that the potential benefits this Drive Reach OTR booster has to increase connectivity and reception would be worth it.

    Thanks for reading my review! I hope it helps give another picture of what this package weBoost is offering is like!

    Powerfully boosts cell signal

    I have an older weBoost product for at-home usage, and that one does a great job increasing cell signal, so I am confident this new vehicle booster would also be great and last a long time. I genuinely enjoy this weBoost Drive Reach OTR, which works powerfully to boost cell signal. The booster is great for me since I travel in city and remote areas for both work and pleasure. The package includes everything needed to assemble into your vehicle: height-adjustable outside antenna, small indoor antenna, the booster device, and all wires. Make sure to get the top portion of the outdoor antenna canister above the vehicle roof and away from any cluttering cargo. Included is an optional spring base for the external mounting, which I think is suitable for when you will have some impact or wind resistance with the outside antenna. The mount is two heavy-duty plates designed to be mounted to a truck's headache rack. I used just the main mounting plate to attach it to the corner of my truck bed frame, just drilling four holes for the plate. In my situation, the installation was effortless, attaching the mount and running the cables inside the truck. The interior antenna looks somewhat directional, so you want mobile devices as near as possible, within a foot or few inches, for optional performance. It can handle multiple devices at once.

    I have used it for some time, and now I get faster data speeds, improved audio/video streaming, and better voice quality. I use a 5G phone, and the weBoost amplifies the signal on my phone while inside the truck. I did a speed test on my trips to different central and south Florida locations, especially off roads, remote areas, and the Everglades National Park. Without the booster, most of the time between cities, my phone received 4G signals and only a few bars. With the weBoost it was a super different experience, which now I received 5G a lot more, and in extremely remote locations, I had more full bars. The speed test showed that the booster always did improve both the download and upload. While there is a significant improvement in both, sometimes the download would be faster, and sometimes the upload would be faster. Now, I do not always leave the booster plugged in, especially when the vehicle off or the vehicle key is in the on position for a prolonged time because it might drain out the battery. I mostly use it for special situations like long trips, driving in rural areas, at a wilderness park, when I need faster speed, or when there is a weak signal. To conclude, I am satisfied with the weBooster; it does make a huge difference with both the download and upload speed. It does helps reach signals that are further away.

    Not as good as they think

    I drive OTR and have more then ample room to spread it out, because you can't have the outside and inside antenna and the booster box close to each other per the directions. And I get at most 1 bar. I have Verizon from Verizon, not a secondary cell provider and at best I get one bar. Maybe it might work better with another provider, but as it stands this thing shouldn't be more then 150 dollars at best. I even have it set above the truck top. It's the big one next to the satellite radio antenna.

    A Much-Needed Boost

    My husband is an over-the-road truck driver. He uses AT&T as his cell provider, while I use Verizon here at home. On any given day, my phone connection is more reliable and stable than his. Of course, several factors contribute to this, most specifically where he happens to be in the country, the terrain of the land, weather conditions, number of available cell towers, etc. This is something the both of us have gotten used to dealing with over these many years, with dropped calls being one thing, but his having no connection at all, being the most inconvenient and frustrating.

    And so, we were excited to be given the chance to try out this WeBoost Drive Reach OTR cell signal booster for trucks, and review our shared experience with regards to how well it worked (or didn’t) for us.*

    I was in the truck during installation, assisting with the process from start to finish. Fortunately, the instructions were detailed enough. Plus, (nearly) everything you will need is included with the device itself.

    Installing the cell signal booster turned out to be less problematic than we had initially anticipated. All-in-all, it took about an hour to get the whole system installed. Most of that was the outside antenna and making sure all the cables were secure and tucked away. My husband likes a neat and clean looking, well-organized truck, especially when it comes to placement of his many electronic devices to insure they are within easy reach. He uses a single antenna for his CB Radio, so was able to use the pre-existing mount on the passenger side mirror along with the spring mount provided with the antenna. This WeBoost came with everything but the screws to mount the bracket that holds the main unit. Take into consideration what’s on the other side of where you’re mounting the bracket, when deciding the length of screws. We used both pieces of the antenna rod to get the most height for the best possible signal. The cable for the antenna runs right down through the center of the rod. No one is stealing this antenna without rendering it useless to them. Lock tight is included for a good weather seal and added security and vibration control where the antenna rods screw together. The antenna can be set up with four different heights depending on your needs. The inside antenna is supposed to be no closer then 18’’ and no more then 36’’ away from your phone. The overhead visor area worked out perfect with my husband’s on-dashboard phone mount. The power supply that plugs into your 12v power supply has a USB plug, so you can charge other items if need be. There is a light on top to let you know that the unit is supplying power to your system. The power switch will disconnect the power to the USB port and to the booster.

    So far how has this cell signal booster performed? Well, my husband has been told by people who he regularly talks to that his audio quality seems to be louder, and he’s definitely seen an improvement in his signal strength in areas that were always iffy. While my husband was on a call with me as he was going over the mountains (one of those occasions when we would routinely lose connection as the call gets dropped), it took longer for the call to be dropped, and this happened less frequently so could simply be a result of changing cell towers as he was driving.

    Yet for how well this WeBoost Drive Reach OTR for trucks will perform over the ‘long haul’ will remain to be seen. I will say, that the cost does seem a tad pricy, even though the unit comes with basically all the items necessary for installation.

    *(I received this item in exchange for an honest review.)

    A boost you can see!

    This weboost really dose boost your cellular Signal. And it works for everyone in the car. Comes with everything you need to install. I did order a separate mounting bracket for my truck so that it wouldn’t interfere with my tonnele cover. The install took me about an hour to run and hide all of the wires under the carpet. Although the cable can be run so the door closes on it I didn’t want to see the wire. So I ran it under the truck cab and up though a drain plug. It’s a nice clean install.

    So far I have only used it down town. Some of the spots where I park I use to get bad reception due to surrounding buildings I think. But with this booster I could see one to two bars more of signal. This will definitely help with drop calls and Internet speed. I am very happy with this unit so far. I added some before and after photos of my signal strength. It’s a difference you can see

    Great for the RV Life

    Having recently dived in to the RV lifestyle with a travel trailer, and having always road tripped in my Ram pickup truck, I was really excited to get this booster. There were always those times where I'd be driving through the middle of nowhere and have horrible cell connection. Usually not a big deal, unless you have a 6 year old riding in the back you're trying to keep happy.

    With the addition of the RV, I found myself staying at several State parks. Unfortunately the state parks I've been to have rarely had good cell coverage. Great if you want to get away, but not so great when you decide you want to work remotely. Because why not take advantage of having to work remote due to the pandemic and do it with some beautiful scenery.

    That's where this booster comes in. I knew about this booster when I visited the oil fields in west Texas. I noticed this weird looking antenna on everyone's trucks, and found out everyone out there swore by it as they tend to drive out into very remote regions.

    So first thing I did when I got this booster was take a quick road trip to the state park I often go to and where I knew had bad cell service. Set everything up on my Ram truck, and started testing my connection without the booster, and then plugging it in.

    The booster did exactly what it said it would do. My cell signal improved every time. Sometimes by only a couple bars, but the improvement was there. I took screenshots of the signal strength with and without the booster to show the improvement. I drove all around the state park testing out in bad spots and good spots, and no matter where I went, my connection was improved. And in case you're wondering, my carrier is T-Mobile, although that shouldn't matter since the booster should work regardless of the carrier.

    So far I'm really happy with this booster, although I have yet to take one of those long road trips to really put it to the test. This booster now allows me to work out of my travel trailer too, since now I can hop onto a call or meeting anytime, whereas before when I tried, the call would just break apart and I was forced to drive out to get service, but no more.

    The only thing I still have trouble doing work-wise, is trying to use my cell phone as a hotspot for data when I need to get on the internet through my laptop. Even though I was getting a boosted connection, I'm not sure it's meant for data usage in this way. So loading sites was painfully slow still, albeit I was at least getting a little bit of data whereas without the booster I got none at all.

    Set-up was much easier than I thought it would be too, with one exception that I'll get to in a moment. All the cables are sufficiently long enough and very durable. It even tells you in the manual that you don't have to worry about damaging the line if you need to run it through your door jamb and shut the door on it. With my Ram, there are actually plenty of spots and holes to route everything through to keep most of it hidden and clean looking.

    Now to the exception, and that is installing the external/outdoor antenna. It uses a standard cb antenna mount, so if you have one of those somewhere, great, but if you don't, good luck. The only mounting bracket this comes with is one that you attach to a metal bar like you would see on old truck sideview mirrors, or more commonly now on semi trucks. As for pickup trucks, they all have more modern sleek mirrors, I don't think they've had the metal bar style in many many years. So be aware that in this case, you'll need to improvise or go out and buy a bracket separately.

    Being that this booster is marketed towards both OTR Truckers and pickup trucks, there's even a picture of a Ram like mine on the front of the box and other pickups on the back, they really should have included some sort of bracket for pickups, maybe a universal one that can attach to a standard pickup truck bed, which is the kind I bought separately.

    Overall, this booster works and does what exactly what it says it can do. If you work out in remote areas, take road trips often, and especially if you live that RV lifestyle, this is practically a must buy.

    MUST HAVE for Over the Road/Long Haul/Road Trips

    Super easy to install in new 2021 Tacoma Pickup, however you may need a mounting bracket for use on an SUV.

    We travel down from New Bern, NC to Charleston, SC - through Myrtle Beach monthly, and we USED to hit many cell dead spots til we got our truck kitted with this weBoost 472154 signal booster.

    We use our phones to stream Spotify mostly these days when travelling, and would be lucky if we had strong enough signal to do that and navigate using google maps.

    Now, we are totally able to make the trip uninterrupted with no slow data speeds/drops - so much so that last weekend the kids used up so much of our data streaming youtube/netflix/etc on our “Unlimited data” plan, that we got throttled by the carrier!

    Not sure if there are stronger models/bigger antennas for OTR 18-wheeler truckers - but if you have a pickup and travel enough where slow internet data speeds, breaking up or cropped calls is problematic - this is 100% the answer.

    We plan on getting a camper too, and this will be a godsend.

    Thanks weBoost!

    Companion for the Trails

    I've been excited to try this to see if the booting capabilities of this device are worth the price. There are some important things to know before you decide to jump on this booster. It is NOT going to magically bring signal to a place that there isn't signal to begin with. Your mobile carrier needs to have some signal in order to BOOST it to a faster and more useable connection.

    With that said, this antenna makes a difference. Please make sure you understand that it is a rather large antennae and you will need to mount it in a place that allows for it to be higher up on your truck/suv.

    Pros:

    -Omni directional antennae

    -Allows for multiple users to benefit from improved call quality, data speeds, and steaming.

    -5G capable for all US networks.

    -10% - 15% average increase in my tests.

    -Power supply has on/off switch at the outlet.

    -Everything included in the box to mount and use.

    (Not Really Cons; Just important things to take note)

    -May need to look at other mounting configurations depending on your rig, truck, suv.

    -Takes time to look into routing wiring from outside your rig, truck, suv, to the inside. Pre-plan in order to find the best way that works for you prior to putting it together.

    Truck- 2019 Toyota 4Runner

    Mounted on OEM roof rack with an adapter from Amazon.

    Routed antenna wire through rear hatch weather strip on passenger side.

    Wire continues inside of passenger side light panel.

    Currently placed the booster inside the trunk area tray.

    From booster to the interior antenna cable is ran through the trim and under the carpet to the passenger seat.

    Interior antenna is near the lower center arm rest.

    weBoost - Drive Reach RV
    Description

    Do you experience slow internet speeds, dropped calls, and the inability to send and receive texts while you’re on the road? With the weBoost Drive Reach RV, you can improve your cell signal. Wherever your adventures take you. The Drive Reach RV uses the latest technology to pick up an existing cell signal, route it the booster, then broadcast that amplified signal into your RV. To install the Drive Reach RV, first select where to mount the outside antenna using the provided ladder bracket. This is the most important step as it impacts the overall performance of the booster. Check that the antenna is at least 12 inches from all other antennas and openings to avoid interference. Use the modular mast extensions to ensure the antenna is above any obstructions. Once the outside antenna is installed, run the coax cable behind the weather stripping of an opening, like a door, window, or pop out slide, into your RV. Next, place the inside antenna on a table or countertop near where you plan to use your devices the most. Then run the coax cables to the booster. Plugin both the outside and inside cables. Now, plug in the power cord to the booster. Finally, plug the power cord into your vehicle’s power supply and turn on the booster. When the green light is on, it’s working.

    Improves signal, but don't expect miracles

    First let's talk about what really matters, does this actually boost cell signal? I got to test this out during a weekend camping trip in my travel trailer at a State Park. Unlike RV parks, State Parks are more about nature and escaping the real world. This means less amenities, no wi-fi, and horrible cell coverage. This particular park was next to a small town with a population of 4500, so it does get some coverage, but it was spotty. With no booster, my phone (a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G through T-Mobile) would continuously jump from 1-2 bars of 5G to absolutely NO signal at all and everything in between.

    With this booster setup inside my trailer, my service did in fact improve. My signal continued to jump around, but instead of going all the way down to zero, it jumped anywhere between a few bars of 4G up to 2-3 bars of 5G. That said, it didn't jump around as much. Overall it was a steadier signal.

    But that steadier signal is a bit deceiving. When it comes to talk and text, aka using your phone as a regular phone, this booster works well and you don't have to worry as much about being completely disconnected from the world. However, when using apps that require data (youtube, facebook, instagram, etc.), it's not as reliable. So if you're in an area where you're already having trouble getting data, this booster isn't going to improve it all that much. Not that it doesn't improve it, I just still had issues with my apps freezing up or taking a lot of time to load data.

    So if you're someone who has to work remotely, I wouldn't rely on this booster to give you a signal good enough, or reliably enough, to work nomadically. But for minimal use, or just to at least be able to call someone if needed and not be completely cut-off, then this works as advertised. And even in the product FAQs it'll tell you that there has to be at least some signal for it to boost, so if your phone doesn't work at all without it, chances are it won't work with it either.

    On the hardware side of things, setting it all up is fairly simple. The hardest part is really just figuring out the best way to route the cable from the outside antenna to the booster. You want to be able to use it during all types of weather but obviously you have to make sure wherever the cable's entry point is into your RV, that it doesn't let water through. I actually found a good temporary spot going through my range hood exhaust fan, which has an exterior vent made to allow for it to be open even in rain. I figured out how to make it permanent too while only drilling a couple holes in the vent and range hood itself, so I don't have to worry about going through any of the actual exterior structure.

    I want to also add that the main cable for the outside antenna is separate, so the antenna itself only has a very short cable on it. I mention this because I had the weBoost for trucks and that one had the full length cable as part of the antenna. That made taking the antenna off and on tedious because of how it twists the cable. That problem doesn't exist with this booster made for RV's. That means it's extremely easy to remove and re-attach the antenna whenever you want, so you don't have to keep it on while traveling. This also allowed me to attach the antenna bracket to a portion of my ladder where it allows the antenna to be at the highest point possible, and then when I'm hitting the road it only takes a few seconds to take it down.

    Finally, I want to add that the cable should be plenty long enough for most RV's. My trailer is only 25', but I had more than enough cable length rolled up that it would have worked on a much longer trailer as well.

    Overall, it's tough to say if this booster is really worth it. It does improve the cell signal, but it's only a slight improvement. If you tend to go out into remote areas a lot and you just want it for a more reliable signal in case you need it, or for minor tasks or data usage, then it's perfect. If you want something to allow you to work, stream, or play games in areas that wouldn't normally have a good enough signal to do so, this isn't going to fix that.

    Great Signal Booster For Remote Workers

    The Weboost Drive Reach RV is a small cellular signal booster that is easy to setup and use. The design is good as the Weboost itself isn't very large and should be something that can be mounted just about anywhere inside your RV or travel trailer. It's case has a solid construction feel to it. You only have to connect 3 cables to it, the outside antenna cable, the inside antenna cable and the power cable. This makes it incredibly easy to setup. Mount the outside antenna on your RV's or travel trailer's ladder, mount the Weboost inside where you want it mounted, and set the inside antenna in your RV or travel trailer's living space. Run the cables and plug the power cable into the Weboost and that's it. The cables that come with it are small diameter cables so running the outside antenna cable to the Weboost shouldn't be too bad. If you don't want to run the outside antenna cable yourself or are worried about doing that, you can get an RV service department to do it. There is a light indicator on the front of the Weboost that indicates various statuses so you will easily know what state it is in. It also comes with a spring for the outside antenna and mounting hardware to mount the outside antenna on the ladder of your RV or travel trailer. Minus the running of the outside antenna cable, this is about as simple as it can get. It's also 5G ready which means you won't need to upgrade to a different model anytime soon.

    One of the locations that I sometimes go in a nearby National Forest is where my cell phone gets only 1 bar of signal, but with the Weboost, I'm now able to get 2 bars of signal at that location. I moved my toy hauler about 100 yards away from that location which allowed me to get 3 bars with the Weboost. So far I am really liking the Drive Reach RV. I don't have to worry as much about where I can be in a national forest or what RV parks I can go to and still get my work laptop connected. This opens up a lot of places for me to visit and still be able to get connected. I would recommend it to anyone looking into getting a cell booster for their RV, travel trailer, 5th wheel, or toy hauler and especially to those who work remotely from their RV and depend on cell service to get connected.

    Very Good But PLEASE READ!

    OK, in all this is a great system. Installation was a cinch. Mount outdoor antenna with any of several supplied mounting brackets, drill a hole, run external cable, plug power in, plug external antenna lead in... Then plug in internal lead, connect internal antenna and bam, system should be good and it is.

    That said, it is VITALLY important that you place the internal antenna roughly table-top height AND in main part of RV where you are going to use it. The internal antenna has a relatively small RF throw area. If you are in visual range of that antenna, you are good to go but if not, you might have some challenges.

    We tested this at a private camp-site in Menooka Park at Wilson Lake in Kansas. Outside of the RV, data was spotty at best all over the campground. Inside the RV (without the weBoost) data was virtually non-existent. As soon as you power on the weBoost, and are in range of the internal antenna, data was excellent. both 4G and 5G and we had seamless streaming on multiple devices.

    End of the day, this is a very good unit BUT please install to recommended guidelines, specifically mounting internal antenna at table-top heights and mount it where it would be used most.

    I would have given a 5 star if the internal antenna had slightly more range and coverage, but end of day, very good system.

    I would certainly recommend to a friend.

    Works and works great with a caveat

    We camp nearly every weekend in our 5th wheel and the state parks are always in bad cell phone reception areas. When you have 2 kids and need to stream Netflix on rainy days, this Weboost is your ticket to parental happiness.

    Pros:

    • Very straight forward install

    • Comes with all the needed parts

    • High quality parts

    Cons:

    • Limited to 110v outlets

    • Ladder mounting bracket will mar your ladder’s paint

    • 25’ Cable length is questionable for very very large rigs

    • Amp can get really warm

    First and foremost, this thing does what it’s intended to do. It boosts available cell signals. It doesn’t magically create cell signal so if you get zero service, this booster will not help. We were getting 2 bars at our favorite camping spot and this booster will get me the full 5 bars. But full 5 bars only if you are within a foot or 2 of the “indoor” antenna. That’s the caveat. You have to be very close to the inside antenna to have the best results. Luckily in my situation, I have the amp and indoor antenna in my living room of the camper where we would normally need the fastest data speeds. The indoor antenna is also on a 20-25ft cable so technically, you can move the antenna around to where you’re going to need the best service. We have our amp and antenna hooked up behind our main TV. I place my iphone near the indoor antenna and setup the phone as a mobile hotspot so that my TV can stream Netflix with very high quality. And you can easily move the indoor antenna to a table where you need to do some computer work with the included long cable.

    I did include a screen shot of my data speeds before and after the install. What’s interesting is that even though my phone was at 2 bars, the download speeds were the same if it was 2 or 5 bars. The upload speeds saw the biggest increase as it went from 4.39Mbps to 12.1Mpbs.

    In summary, we are very pleased with the weboost. It does what its designed to do but you just have to know the limitations. It does increase your data speeds to the point that I can stream Netflix or work on my laptop with no issues. If you intend to use this booster while driving, either have a power converter to run the amp’s required 110v outlet plug or run the generator while driving.

    Good Signal Booster

    Does what it says on the tin! It's relatively easy to mount and setup is pretty much non-existent. Once all the cables are plugged in, you're done. I tested this unit in two locations. The first location has good signal outside but poor signal indoors, the building is mostly metal and blocks the signal. In this situation the booster worked great and was able to boost the signal by almost 20db inside the building, which resulted in better speeds and stability. The results went from a erratic 25 down/0.2 up to a steady 50 down/15 up. The second location was installed in my RV is a low service area. In this situation I would normally have one or two bars of signal while outside of the RV and one bar inside with noticeably slower speeds. With this booster I was able to attain three bars and while the peak speeds stayed in the 15 range, the signal was much more stable and loading of pages and streaming of videos was smoother with less buffering. While it is important to note that you could get slightly better performance by using a booster with a directional antenna I enjoy the convenience of not having to aim at a specific tower especially considering this is mounted on a mobile RV. I have used other WeBoost products in the past and they have always worked well for me. I have also tried a few cheap options and was not impressed, this unit is definitely worth the added cost if you depend on your cell phone in low signal areas.

    WeBoost on my RV

    I've been camping on and off with my new RV for about 9 months now and I've been in several different campsites where I didn't have cell signal or wifi. So I figured what do I have to lose by trying the WeBoost and man what a good decision.

    I will say that installation of this unit wasn't easy, but if wasn't do to WeBoost, but because of my RV manufacturer. The actual installation of the WeBoost was straight forward and easy. So if you're pretty good as a DIY person you shouldn't have any reason to hire a professional. It came with plenty of cable and attaching hardware for a clean installation.

    Now as far as performance this unit performs well. I'm really glad that I got this cell signal booster. I've been using this unit for a little over a week now and I have experience great service everywhere I've been. I use a cellular hotspot for my streaming services and I've enjoyed the speed and no more buffering. I do recommend this item for anyone wanting to get cell service while out camping or even at home if you don't get great service.

    weBoost - Drive Reach RV

    What is in the box

    Inside antenna

    Outside antenna

    Control box

    Antenna extension

    Mast mounting hardware

    Install Guide

    Quick install sheet

    Decal with contact information

    Cable mounting hardware

    Assembly and installation following the enclosed guide went without any problems. I did not do a complete install, but all units were properly put together. There was not a tag on the outside cable as to what end went to the box and what end went to the antenna, I guess wrong and retried. After the outside antenna was hooked to and secured above the RV, I put the inside antenna on the counter and plugged it into the box along with the outside coaxial cable. I then plugged in the transformer and the other end into the control box. The Light came on green but then started flashing red. After a few moments it went to all green. I called someone on the phone as I walked around inside the RV. The signal was breaking up and kept dropping the call. I then unplugged the unit and called back. This call was the same as the first call. When I reached the end of the 26-foot RV the call was again dropped.

    I would not recommend the weBoost – Drive Reach RV unit.

    A Welcome Addition to my RV

    I'll start this off by saying that I admit I havent had my RV very long, but on some of the vacations I've taken in it, I've noticed that in relatively remote areas, cell signal can be a challenge. My RV isn't all that large so I didn't want anything huge to either attach to it or that I would need to set up separately if I stopped.

    Installation was not difficult, the antenna is designed to attach in one of a few different places and it's not intended to be hard-wired to the vehicle power system (although it appears they sell an additional unit to assist with that). It's fairly straightforward. I installed it to the ladder on the back of the RV, ran the wire to the booster unit and inside to the cell receiver.

    In traveling and using it, there was a definite improvement in cell signal when in more remote locations, although if I went too far, even this would eventually lose signal.

    That said though, I can see instances where, aside from just the convenience of having cellular signal far out, could also make the difference in getting help if it is needed. To that point, it does say that it could affect the ability for e911 to work, so in those instances you must be able to tell law enforcement where you are at.

    Overall there's not really a lot more to say about it. It's everything you would hope it would be in terms of installation and use. I imagine a larger system would have more range, but that was not what I wanted. All in all it's a great investment.

    It actually worked

    After much fighting my low end carrier because they couldn't register it, having T-Mobile tell my friend she couldn't register but 1 booster (she has an actual T-Mobile booster for her home) I was able to register it under my daughter (she uses metro PCs) the booster has done what it claimed. I've got at least 2 extra bars when inside my truck (91 f150 single cab long bed) and when walking within 5 feet of my truck.

    The external antenna is on the top of my truck bed cap and the internal antenna is currently hanging on my rear view mirror.

    weBoost drive x

    This product really works. I was honestly surprised, But when I go to my farm about 80 miles from the city, I get terrible phone reception so I thought I would try it. I watched my phone with 1 signal bar, and then I plugged everything in and turned on the switch. It went to 5 bars. I was truthfully shocked, but I highly recommend it. We will take it with us for sure when we travel to other states.

    If you have a signal this will add 1-2 bars. I may add a longer antenna to increase the range when in the back country.

    From zero to two bars on Verizon

    This worked on a regular 5 hr commute thru zero bars, no phone call or text territory for us on verizon. Even tho it showed we were roaming and had 5 bars thru this area, nothing was possible til we got to a large city. It gave us 2 bars!

    draw backs- the signal given off by inside antenna was carried to a very small radius. Had to place my phone about 5 inches away from the inside one-directional antenna that was placed by the radio on my dash and use speaker and squinting, lol. There are no indications which side of the antenna is the one that needs to be facing outward either but I guess it doesn't matter since it gave us a signal. If I drew the phone to my face about 12 inches away no signal. Over all very happy with this.

    Essential for camping if you need to stay connecte

    We were traveling around the country in a converted campervan, and this was essential for work and staying connected while on the road. We generally saw an increase of 1 to 3 bars of service and occasionally even got a usable signal when there wasn't any before.

    Better call quality, no dropped calls, faster data

    I live in ruralish suburbs and cell phone reception where I am can be pretty spotty. Often we have to deal with dropped calls and garbled audio during calls made from inside the house. The setup process for this signal booster is straightforward, though somewhat involved. However, the video tutorials from weBoost guided us through each of the steps from determining where the signal was the weakest in our home, to where it was strongest outside our home, and how to locate the nearest cell tower so we could point the antenna in the right direction. I wasn’t relishing the idea of going up on the roof to mount the outside antenna, but thankfully, after watching the setup videos, we learned that I could install the “outside” antenna in the attic, as long as it was oriented towards the closest cell tower that provided our network’s service (we use Verizon, but it's compatible will all GSM or CDMA networks). This also helped us avoid drilling holes in the exterior wall to run the cable inside, and we were able to skip using the window entry jumper cable.

    Even with the outside antenna in the attic, it was still able to receive a strong enough signal from the tower and transmit it to the booster. We set the inside antenna on the first floor in the living room where we felt we would be making the most calls, therefore needed the most improvement in signal quality. I like that the inside antenna has a modern looking fabric cover to blend in with other décor. It looks just like a Bluetooth speaker sitting on the table, though it can be wall mounted or even hidden behind furniture. The booster unit itself, however, is quite industrial looking and has three wires hanging off of it so this is a better candidate for placing behind a couch or in a closet. It also has an indicator LED on it, so you may want to keep it somewhere where you can check on the status every once in a while. It runs pretty hot to the touch too, so wherever it goes, you have to make sure it has good ventilation.

    This signal booster has improved the cell reception for us across three rooms on our first level according to the signal test results on my Galaxy Note 9. Before setting the booster up, I had pretty consistent signal readings of -115 to -107 dBm, which is fairly low (-120 dBm is pretty much unusable signal). After installing and turning the signal booster on, I’ve been seeing signal readings of -90 up to -65 dBm (-40 dBm would be "perfect" signal). In practical terms, that means I no longer get dropped calls from the rooms where the signal is boosted and since the signal picked up is 4G/LTE, data speeds are faster too, which is really helpful if our WiFi goes down. The booster is also able to pickup 3G network signals, if for some reason the 4G signal isn’t strong enough. So at least call quality can be maintained even if data isn’t available, though it’s unlikely we’ll experience that scenario in our area.

    The only thing to keep in mind is that the inside antenna’s signal is directional and limited in range, so it needs to face into a room to get the most signal out of it, and the signal only travels so far and drops off the farther you move away from the antenna, so we don’t see any of the signal improvement on the 2nd and 3rd floors of our home. Overall, the device was pretty simple to set up, improved call quality and data speeds across three rooms (living room, dining room, kitchen with open floor plan), and gave us consistent and reliable call coverage where we needed it the most.

    Performs as advertised.

    My cell service has been notoriously bad ever since I moved into my home. There has been a lot of new development in the area in the last several years but one thing that has yet to catch up to the demand requirements of the neighborhood is the cell phone coverage. This upgrade was overdue.

    This kit does what it claims. I typically would get no service at all to maybe one bar without it inside my home. Almost as soon as I plugged it in I got three bars. If you are in an area where your service is not reliable and you are using some variant of WiFi calling or VOIP service, you might want to strongly consider this kit. In the event your internet goes down and/or have no landline, you could find yourself in a bind during an emergency situation.

    The provided directions are more than sufficient to get this up and running. The difficulty is all based on how you are going to physically install it in your home. Connecting it and powering it up is a breeze. It's literally spelled out in a instruction manual and on the plastic protective bags each component and cable the kit is wrapped up in in a step-by-step style. It doesn't get more clear than that.

    I took off one star only because of the price of the product. As much as I appreciate how this worked out, it is a bit steep. I think more people in my situation would jump on this if it was a bit cheaper. I know a lot of these would sell in my neighborhood alone if that were the case.

    Good for Rural Areas

    I live in a semi-rural area. I say “semi-rural” because, while I am technically in the country, there is a housing boom in my area, so it feels more like a suburb. We moved here three years ago from an actual suburb of a small city. Cellular reception was more reliable there, as were the utilities.

    During our first year here, we had a power outage for three days due to weather. We relied on our cell service for contact with the outside world. A few times, cell coverage was spotty. We usually don’t get more than two or three bars on a good day, so it didn’t take much to go from good to poor service. When that’s your last way of communicating, it becomes an issue.

    We also have issues with coverage throughout the house. The house has three levels. The upstairs has better service, while in the kitchen it’s poor. We do have wireless calling capability but sometimes that isn’t great in the house, either.

    So, when I saw the weboost Home Cellular Signal Booster, I thought this would be a great item to have.

    Unfortunately, the installation was a bit more complicated than we expected. I originally thought this would be a wireless booster, but it does require running a coaxial cable from the outside antenna to the inside antenna. We do not have the tools nor the comfort level of running cable through the siding and through the basement. The kit does come with a flat piece of wire that is a connector between the coax from the outside to the inside cable. This allows installation through a door or a window. We decided to run the cable through our sliding door for now.

    We installed the outdoor antenna to an existing pole that held our old satellite dish (a clamp for this type of install is included). We used the OpenSignal app to locate our nearest tower and pointed the antenna in that direction. We did have an issue, though, as the way we were running the cable ended up requiring us to get a male-to-male connector in order the finish the install. Otherwise, the kit is complete with everything you need to set up the unit.

    We installed the unit in our kitchen, as the second floor was where we had the most issues. Once connected and plugged in, the booster turned green. We went from two bars to 4 bars instantly. We did not have to move the outside antenna at all. The range was -100, which technically was only in the “good” range according to the instructions, but it was good for us.

    I would recommend this unit for those who need a boost in service, especially in more remote areas. Just be aware that it will take some time to install and some technical know-how.

    Great results

    This unit is on the higher end price wise, but you get what you pay for. I have been using a $150 booster for about a year in my home office. My office is inside a metal shop building and is about 450 sq. feet. Cell signal is weak outside the building generally 1-2 bars LTE at the most, at at the worst the "no signal" icon is on. The last cell booster would consistently give me 2-3 bars, plenty to make a call. However, it only lasted 12 months before it quit working. I have installed this unit and am happy to say I have 5 bars of LTE inside my home office. I hope this unit will last longer than 12 months considering the price. Performance so far has been great!

    I installed the outdoor antenna on top of a 2 foot tall pipe at the peak of my shop, pointing towards the nearest cell tower which is approx. 6.5 miles as the crow flies. Install time was about 1.5 hours.

    If you plan what you’re doing, it will work

    I live 1.6 miles away from my closest AT&T tower. I’m a nurse, not IT, or antenna man, or an expert. But I do have basic knowledge in computers. Before the signal booster my phone reception was -115 to -100 if I step by the window. And dead signal in some places. My whole neighborhood it’s a hole.

    After look online my provider tower I proceed to walk and see the tower and then pin it in my phone GPS. Then I went home and put the signal booster antena in a mop stick and like spider man I climb into to my house roof scared of death.

    I assembly the booster as instructed. And I put the antena pointing to the tower 1.6 miles from home. With google maps I was able to look where I am pointing.

    Once on, I proceed to turn on the booster.

    The signal is most of the time between -50 to -70 and I have notable improvement in my internet speed test. I have 2 floors house, 3 bedrooms, so it works, just take your time and put the booster antenna as high as possible

    It works but won’t give you super speeds!

    This thing really works if you at least have a signal outside. It is a bit of work finding the cell tower so you can point the directional antenna. The app told me to point it in the wrong direction. I have Verizon in the Smoky Mountains with zero signal inside the house. Had to use WiFi calling before I installed this. Not super fast speeds but we do get 4g LTE around 3mb down and 1mb up. Compared to zero without this booster, it’s worth the money.

    Great way to get great cell reception

    This mobile booster really worked. I live just enough away from a tower, that my phone signal drops drastically in my home. My wife missed calls all the time because the signal was too weak, and her text messages would also not send. When I added this booster, it drastically increased the reception.

    Signal Strength before booster installed: -55 dBm 85 asu

    Signal Strength AFTER booster installed: -109 dBm 31 asu

    According to the chart in the paperwork, that is a change in signal from Poor to 4G. I’d say that is a huge win.

    Install process:

    The instructions told me to download an app called, “OpenSignal” so that I could find the right direction to point the antennae. It also showed me the distance to the nearest one and where the others are located. Once I figured out the direction, I had to find the best inconspicuous spot to put the antennae, since it is about a 12” x 8” whitish plastic rectangle. I decided to place it on the side of my eaves of my front porch. I had to drill a hole through my exterior wall, then caulk it closed to avoid water intrusion. I rant he white coax cable up my white siding corner trim, then along my white fascia board. The mount they give you is bright red. Why RED?? Nobody has a red house. It should be white to match the antennae.

    The instructions say that for best performance, the antennae should be 20’-0” vertically above the box that has coaxial cable running between them.

    The cables that are provided are (2) 15’-0” coax cables with a female/female joiner, and a 20’-0” coax cable. There is also a flat cable that can be run through a window, that allows you to add this if you are in an apartment, and no drilling is allowed. I can see that being a great option for mounting on your outdoor patio 3 stories up.

    The overall process took me about 2-2.5 hours, since I had to read instructions, set it up in my living room, measure the difference in signal, figure out best place to install it, drill the hole, mount it.

    This just works!

    I was needing a boost in my house because the cell signal is about 2 bars without help. I opened the box and saw the cabling included. I then realized that I may have a better solution. My biggest area of low signal is in my basement. I decided to use the cable wiring in my home that already existed since we no longer subscribe to cable. I found the correct cable outside that led to my family room where I work from home. I set up a pole to connect the antenna to and connected the antenna, aimed it at the closest tower. I then connected the weboost to the cable in the family room and plugged into power. I then watched all the light turn green to signify it’s working properly. The bars on my phone at that point went from 2-4 and occasionally 5 with the 5G signal. Super happy with how this is working. Makes my battery life last much longer. It’s even higher upstairs even though it’s only rated for one room use. My only complaint is that the booster is very hot to touch. The picture is upstairs at nearly 10 pm and it’s at 46% battery life. I’ve not had to charge my phone all day since I’ve set up the booster. Really pleased with how it’s working in my home.

    Bring strong outdoor cell signal inside.

    The weBoost Home Studio kit is like having your own personal cell tower extension. It’s perfect for increasing the cell signal in rooms that have a hard time getting reception, like an office basement or that room on the wrong side of the house. It does this by having an antenna mounted outside where the cell reception is good, and then sending that signal to a transmitter that’s mounted inside. Keep in mind that it can only extend the same quality of signal it receives, so it’s very important where and how you set up the outdoor antenna. Aiming it takes a bit of trial and error, but the free Opensignal app weBoost recommends helps a ton in finding the best spot and aiming the antenna. On the inside transmitter there’s a status light for each cell band it’s amplifying to let you know if they’re facing any interference. I’ve only used it with Verizon 4G, but it claims to work with all major cell phone carriers and is compatible with 5G as well, so it shouldn’t become outdated anytime soon. Be sure to give the transmitter a few minutes after plugging it in, because it can take a little bit before the band status goes green. In my case, the 2 and 4 bands were orange for about 5 minutes before going and staying green. It’s a well built kit overall that comes with everything you need and doesn’t require any programming. However, you do need to route rg6 coaxial cable (included) from the outside antenna to inside the home. It also needs to be registered with your cell provider, but they give you advice and it’s a lot easier than it sounds. It’s only been a few days, but so far so good, and it’s wonderful finally having a strong cell signal in my home office. If you have good cell reception outside, but a room with bad reception inside, this is definitely your fix. Neat product!

    PROS

    - Extends cell tower signal inside

    - No programming needed

    - Includes all installation hardware

    - Once it’s set, you can forget it

    CONS

    - Aiming outdoor antenna can take some trial and error

    - Installation involves running cable from outside to inside

    Awesome except the 5G claim

    I’m not sure how I feel about this, it says it is 5G ready, but take this with a grain of salt, the 5G emblem matches AT&T’s 5G emblem which is just one of their 4G bands that was rebranded so while the advertising is 100% true you may find much different results depending on the 5G signal that is coming from your carrier. Once you open the box and read the manual, you will find that the lights on the device each represent a different band 2,4,5,12,13… Most carriers will have some service on one or more of the bands, but it may not be their fastest service; so, do yourself a favor and be sure that you go to your carrier’s web page and search for what bands they use before you buy. But generally, if you just have that one room that seems to get no signal or if you live in a concrete apartment that seems to get no signal into it this is a good device for getting service. This is also more of a general solution which has some advantages, mainly which is guests with different carriers than yours are not without signal as well.

    It comes with a Yagi (or direction) antenna, that you can point at the nearest tower simply by using Open Signal as they suggest. For mounting the antenna, I have found that a piece of rigid metal conduit works amazing. If your just have an issue with signal in your house or apartment you could also purchase an OMNI antenna that would not need to be pointed at any one tower. You can also download an app that analyzes your network and gives stats such as the signal strength which may be able to help dial in the absolute best spot to place the antenna.

    The booster itself can be mounted on the wall in an out of the way place or placed on a coffee table like the manual shows. It comes with two 30’ cables and all the mounting supplies you need for the antenna expect a pipe. You’ll see the lights go green for whichever signal it is detecting and boosting.

    Overall, I think this is a nice device and does almost everything that it is designed to do. It says it is designed for a room and that is true, don’t try to buy this for your house, they have a different product in that same device family for that.

    Pros:

    Great signal booster

    Small form factor

    Easy to setup

    Set and forget

    Easy to see a change in status

    Cons:

    Not fully 5G compatible

    Not quite instant

    First thing, get the OpenSignal app and look for the direction the app points to the tower. Walk around your building, maybe even reboot the phone and see if it still points in the general same direction. Now, if that tower happens to line up with the direction of your building, then you can use the included mount with a few screws and mount to a corner. If not, then you need to get you some pole mount hardware like that used for TV/Satellite antennas. There is U-bolt hardware included to mount to that pole, but you have to have a pole on your building to attach to. It doesn’t have to be precise, but within a few degrees.

    Once you have figured that part out, consider where you will run 30/60ft of RG-6 cable (included) from outside to inside and the rest is simple. The indoor booster looks a lot like a typical WiFi router and is as simple with a power adapter, an antenna and a port for the RG-6 cable. Once connected and powered on, the five band lights will give indication of each band's status with red/yellow/green and flashing. Solid green is what you want and it may take a couple minutes for them to become stable. If after a couple minutes they aren’t green, consider moving the booster to a different area, as it may be too close to the outdoor antenna causing interference. If it still doesn’t work, you may have to adjust the angle of the outdoor antenna which is where it is all left up to you and your phone in trial and error on what is better. I really wish they had a simple way of testing strength, like a tone or meter on the booster.

    Anyways, 5 green lights and I went from 1-2 bars inside to 4, out of 5. When outside on my ladder, while installing the outdoor antenna, I was getting about 3-4. So, this essentially boosts what I could get outside, to a steady strength inside. The OpenSignal app also has a speed test, make sure to turn off your WiFi and give it a try with the booster off, then on. You can see in the image below, it clearly made a difference in the speed for download and upload. Throughout the day though, running a test randomly, I get varying results, but that could be the cellphone company as well. This particular booster is meant for small homes or apartments, not whole house. However, it does seem to still keep the strength through other rooms.

    Also of note “On February 20, 2013, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted new rules governing the design and operation of consumer signal boosters” which requires you to register your signal booster with your carrier. With Verizon it said that consumer products are instant registration and all it required was some basic contact info, the model and serial number of the booster. The common carrier websites are in the manual.

    Overall, this has clearly boosted my weak indoor signal, but does require some pre-planning and installation. This isn’t a miracle worker, you have to have some signal already outside in the area in which you wish to install it. If you are only getting 1-2 bars outside, or weak signal, it says the booster will cover a small room. The stronger the outdoor signal, the more coverage inside. So, if you just need that signal that you get outside, brought inside, this will do it.

    Great Cell Signal Booster!!

    When I first heard about the weboost Home Studio, I was a little bit skeptical about how would actually improve my cell reception..After installing and testing it out, I was amazed at how well this actually worked. Not only did the weboost improve my cell reception, but it actually more than doubled my download and upload speeds.

    Setting up the weboost Home Studio takes a little bit of work. You will have to run coax cable from the antenna (outside), to the boost (inside) your desired room. When installing the antenna outside, you will use an app that locates the nearest cell tower, so you know what direction to point the antenna. After you have everything installed, you then need to activate the boost through your cell providers website. The activation is incredibly easy, the part that took the longest was having to call to get my account number. Once you activate the boost through your cell provider, the last thing you need to do is plug in the boost to the included power cord. The boost immediately turns on, there are no waiting times for it to load up either.

    The way the booster works is, it takes the signal from the nearest cell tower and then amplifies it into a room in your home. The better the signal is, the larger the area that the boost will provide. Keep in mind, if you have no signal, the boost won't be able to create one for you. So you will need at least some sort of signal. The booster also allows for multiple devices to use the booster at the same time, but they have to be on the same network as you are.

    Before I installed the boost in my living room, I decided to run a couple speed tests to see what I was getting, The results were nothing to brag about, as they were pretty slow. I then ran the tests again after the boost was installed and couldn't believe how much of a difference it made. It more than doubled my speeds.

    Overall, I am very pleased with the weboost Home Studio. It really does make a huge difference in my cell service by giving me faster upload/download speeds, as well as giving me a better signal. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a week signal and needs a better one.

    Large room Cellular signal booster

    weBoost Home Studio Cell Phone Signal Booster – Designed and assembled in USA with a 2yr warranty and US based customer service. Designed for an apt., small home or a large room this device works with all US carrier networks and phones and is 5G ready. ( booster will amplify any cell signal technology, including 5G, on bands 12/17, 13, 5, 4, and 25/2.)

    Please note you must register this device with your wireless provider.

    You are provided with an outside directional Antenna that you point at your nearest cell tower. To determine where your cell tower is - I used Network Cell Info Lite on my android phone. I hooked it to a pipe on my roof with the included mounting bracket and hooked up one of the 30f Coax cables. After bringing the cable into my home I hooked up the booster which takes the signal that is picked up by the Antenna and amplifies it. After a couple of minutes where it adjusts itself the antenna on the amplifier rebroadcasts the signal. This was located in my breakfast nook which is attached to my living room.

    I originally experienced 1 to 2 bars of signal strength and after installed it went to a constant 3 bars. You could see with the android app and the Android field test mode that my signal basically doubled over what I originally experienced. As an added bonus there are no subscription costs or fees.

    I am very pleased with how well it works and I felt it was easy to setup.

    Works well

    We now have cell service in our house, without this we had to go outside to get service. Read the installation instructions on line before buying, you will need to put a pole up, obtained separately, in order to mount the outside antenna. You will need to know where the nearest cell tower is so that you can orient the antenna correctly. You need to have some installation skills, it took some experimentation to locate in the right spot.

    Works good once best location is found.

    At first it did not do very good at all and thought it was just due to a poor outside cell signal and didn’t think there was much we could do to improve. A few weeks later we mourned the antenna on a much taller pole and payed with the direction to point it some and now the unit puts out a pretty strong and fast connection. Still doesn’t cover the whole 1900 sq ft house but it does help the common areas where phones are used most.

We couldn't even make a phone call inside the building, let alone sitting in the 5th wheel. Internet was a complete joke. So we didn't expect much.

    At just a few feet off the ground we are able to use our phones and the internet inside now.!!! We will be mounting it in a more permanent position, now that we know it works.

    It does the job!

    I didn't have any problems installing the product. I don't get great cell service where I'm at even though Verizon states their the best. Tried to resolve the problem through them but they said i would have to subscribe to my local internet provider to get better service. The service is needed to utilize their device to help improve their service. I said that defeats the purpose of using your unlimited internet. Anyway I normally receive 8 gigabytes for downloading, but with this device i now get about 23 gigabytes. I think I get poor service because of all the trees in the yard and neighborhood. I still have minor issues with my tv show freezing, but it's not as bad as before. Weather also plays a factor in reception. I use my internet for everything, computers, game consoles, and tv. It saves a lot of money since I've gotten rid of Comcast and I don't like centurylink at all. I would jus say don't expect miricles with this product, but it works for me.

    A Skeptic's Review. This Works!

    We have a very weak signal. It was difficult to get a reliable cell connection outdoors let alone inside our metal roofed home. Readings outdoors ranged from 118 - 124. We could get a fairly reliable 1 bar on the end of our house toward the nearest tower. Very dense forest separated the two. Being 72 it took me about 4 hours to install the Home Room booster. We now have reliable 3-4 bar service in our home and our hotspot is amazing as well. The signal strength does start to fade when more than 25 ft away but I have not dropped a call anywhere in our 1600 sqft home since installing. Go for the multiroom version if your house is larger.

    Ha it was rainy and cold I don't know why the photo is green.

    My Bother's house has a metal roof and metal siding. The signal from Verizon outside is one and sometimes two bars. My phone could not be used inside the house unless I was at a window. I installed the booster antenna on the roof and turned it on. Wow!

    Great for remote job sites

    Great for remote job sites where cellular signal is very marginal. We had several conex trailers on one of our job sites. We were unable to use phones and tablets for our voice or data communications. We installed these on the outside of the trailers and now have the capability to communicate and send important project information.

    Good Cell Booster option

    Purchased for a vacation home that has poor service. Seem to work well with in the room that it is located. Signal does not seem to carry through the entire home but for the price it is doing enough for what it was needed for.

    Helped but not amazing

    Working from home has us spread all over the house and the lowest level was an AT&T dead zone. Installed this and now text messages go through immediately and calls are better but not great. Still dropping calls if you move around while in the phone. Calls aren’t missed anymore. Important to know where the closest tower is and keep testing the signal during installation and base placement inside to get best results. Hardest part was getting the cable outside and attaching to brick exterior.

    Does a pretty good job

    I needed to boost the signal in my basement. I had been getting just one bar but now consistently get three bars, enabling me to use the device that I was trying to use in the basement. Though I can get four bars, I have to be within about four or five feet of the antenna; otherwise, I would have given the product five stars.

    Doubled my reception!

    I can only get 1 to 2 bars in the most Easterly room in the house. There have even been times where the call has dropped. I installed the SureCall-Flare 3.0 today and after running a cable wire to the farthest room and playing with the direction of the antenna I am able to get a full 4 bars. No more dropped calls! Must be able to run a cable wire through basement and up through wall. I did the job in about 5 hours.

    Works good for a while

    Had it installed immediately and received cell signal in the house again. However, the right yellow light keeps flashing, instructions said it was because outside antenna is too close to inside unit , which isn't true in our case, the distance is more like 75 feet.try disconnect the power and the device works fine again for two day ,then the flashing begins again. therefore I cannot understand why the flashing. Passed return window so that we have to deal with it. Our ten year old Wilson unit was working great until it got hit by lightning. May have to buy Wilson again in the future.

    Huge help during COVID-19

    Our rural home is miles from the nearest cell tower, and our outside signal is marginal to begin with. In addition, our house is concrete and foam construction, which weakens the signal further.

    The Flare with the Omni antenna was very easy to set up and test run. There is a real difference in using a phone as a hotspot for live online Zoom classes. We can also talk on our cellphones without dropping calls!

    For a family that is not tech savvy, this has been a lifesaver for our college student, and a nice upgrade for the rest of us!

    Moves your outdoor signal indoors

    I chose this product because I have a house built in the 60's that gets poor indoor signal reception from my service provider. I'm constantly dropping calls or having audio problems (can you hear me now?), and I was hoping to resolve that issue specifically.

    I received my WeBoost and went onto the website indicated in the package to schedule an install. The process was simple and I was able to schedule an installer for the same day. I received a call before arrival and they were on time (or a little early). They walked around the property to determine the direction of the nearest tower for my cell service, to determine where to mount the antenna (a medium-size fin on an arm that attaches to your eaves).

    The signal repeater, which must be installed inside, runs cable to both antennas and requires a standard outlet. The installers were very professional and helpful in working with me to find a suitable location to install the interior equipment, and accommodated my requests as best they could. I would describe the installation experience as similar to or better than that of a standard satellite or cable TV install.

    The product itself does what it says it does. I went from 0-1 bars of service in my house to a minimum of three depending on location. The service you receive outside your house will now be the service you receive inside your house. It does not "boost" your signal otherwise. If your outdoor signal is poor, this device will not improve it.

    For my part, I've spent the past week using it and haven't had any problems with my calls, which I consider a vast improvement. I'd recommend this to anyone having problems with their indoor cell reception.

    It actually works—but I’m still not convinced

    Overall— the booster actually works and slightly improved my signal. According to the tech I had a -100 ish dB reading around my home (readings from back yard, front yard, side yard, & living room). After install I had about -92 dB inside my home. With that said, I think I have slightly improved reception at home since I haven’t been able to notice any static on the line. Nor have I heard the other party ask me to repeat myself because they couldn’t hear me. Didn’t see much in terms of data.

    Pros— it actually works. Setup is quite simple, if you know how to use power tools you can install it. Although, unless you know exactly where your networks towers are around your area you may still need a tech. Lastly, equipment isn’t very bulky or unsightly.

    Cons— it’s very expensive. (In my case) the improvement isn’t worth the cost. Adds another unsightly antenna to your roof.

    Conclusion— this is one of those types of products where ymmv (your mileage may vary) will certainly apply. In my opinion, if you are considering purchasing a booster, first, contact a tech and have your area scanned. Pinpoint your nearest network tower either though your tech or contacting your wireless carrier, although in the latter case it’s possible that they won’t tell you.

    An overall great booster kit for a house

    Both the unit I received and the installation were provided at no charge as a test unit.

    As of the date of this review, the weBoost Home Complete cell signal booster kit is the top-of-the-line kit that the company provides for consumer, fixed use. While this unit is definitely on the expensive side, it can provide significantly increased coverage if the internal antenna is located correctly. Keep in mind that current units such as this one will boost all bands -- including 5G-LTE, the modified LTE band -- but will not provide bona fide 5G service.

    For this unit, you do have to have professional installation included. This was provided by the great folks over at OnTech, which is actually the same team that works for DISH Network -- and they arrive in said branded vans. The gentleman who performed my install was as professional as could be expected, so I'm not going to spend more time on that aspect. He listened to how I wanted to have the outside antenna installed and provided some great tips.

    The weBoost Home Complete cell signal booster comes with three main parts: the outside antenna, the booster itself (which does get pretty warm as it's being used), and the inside antenna. A picture is included of the final installation for the outdoor antenna. It must be pointed in the general direction of the closest cell tower to provide any sort of service. As you can see, it is a relatively unobtrusive addition to the outside, and will work with most HoA-controlled neighborhoods as well.

    In our instance, since we are no longer using satellite TV (we're now 100% streaming), our tech was able to use the coaxial cable that had already been wired into the house for this device (something I had planned on as we were about to get the unit). In all honesty, since our tech was pretty meticulous at his job, I wouldn't have had any issues if holes would have been drilled to deal with wiring, but that wasn't a part of this install.

    The internal antenna was set up in an enclosed closet for convenience reasons. Our tech went over the technical specifications of distancing for both antennas and how to keep oscillation from happening (which is basically a signal feedback loop that can cause significant interference if not handled properly, something this unit handles by virtue of the LED indicators on the booster itself -- it won't boost a signal if it detects an oscillation).

    To be perfectly honest, if you're comfortable with a drill, ladder, and terminating coaxial cables, there's not really a reason why this couldn't be a DIY-based project, even though weBoost doesn't support that situation with this product. The fact that you must register this device with your wireless carrier is likely part of the reason -- having professional installation is the way that weBoost can effectively guarantee (as it were) that they're in line with FCC regulations (weBoost includes instructions on how to do this in the box).

    What were the results? For our 4,000-square foot house, it definitely boosted our signal -- from a typical one or two bars up to a full five. However, because of the way our internal antenna is set up, and since we do have a decent number of walls/obstructions throughout the house, we can get a good four bars throughout the house, with five typically downstairs. If we were to place the antenna somewhere out in the open, it's likely that our whole-home signaling would likely increase.

    Also, in testing this over a few days post install, I've noticed that our phones might "roam" between the existing tower and our booster "tower," thereby contributing to fluctuating signal ranges from time to time -- that's something built into the way that all cell phones work. Keep that in mind as you're reviewing any sort of signal booster to buy. Our cell tower signals are relatively decent to begin with; I suspect that if you have almost no signaling, you might "stick" with higher signals from the booster more often. This scenario was tested by putting the device into Airplane mode (turning off cellular) and then turning it back on. When doing this, we always got a very strong signal from the booster until the signal algorithms kick in, attempting to find the best signal (don't fault weBoost for that).

    To sum up, the installation was great and the product does work -- assuming you understand what your present cellular situation is now and can make a best-guess as to whether this device is right for you. The price is steep, but this is a pretty powerful unit. Yet for those in more rural areas with next to no cellular reception, this could be exactly what you need for solid signaling.

    Instant increase in bars!

    I had the weBoost Home Complete cell signal booster installed in my home and had an immediate increase from two to four (the max) bars on my cell phone in my home (AT&T). The process to have the signal booster was easy - as it is installed by a professional. This is not something you can do on your own. I was able to call and get an appointment easily with a 2 hour window. The appointment did last nearly 4 hours as the installation process can be tricky. The technician has to locate your cell phone provider towers and the booster has to go in a direction to/from those towers. There are two parts that need to be installed - one part goes in your house and one is outside on your roof (similar to a dish but smaller). The part that is installed inside the house had to be near our cable box and was run through our attic and down the wall. The technician did a great job with installation and we saw an immediate improvement in service as soon as installation was complete.

    Miracle Solution? No. Works? Yes.

    My home office is in the basement of a newer suburban subdivision and while I have never had a problem getting A signal for AT&T or Verizon, I'm constantly getting 1-2 bars on both carriers. Looking at a Booster solution as a 'nice to have' as opposed to an essential purchase I decided to take the plunge because I'm working from home (he justified).

    Package arrived and in the top of the box there was a card with a 7 digit code needed to redeem for the included installation. The process seemed straight forward enough, but when I went to sign up for an OnTech account register the code the scheduling system didn't give me any available dates to schedule. I called the 800# and talked with a scheduling specialist who was working from home due to COVID-19 (Super nice guy BTW) who wasn't able to help me because when he tried to enter the code to schedule in his system it came back as redeemed. He directed me to WeBoost customer care who was also super nice / working from home, but apparently this is a new product and they didn't have much experience with the process. Fortunately, I have a lot of time on my hands so I didn't mind the wait, and they were extremely professional with actual call backs and follow-ups. 5 stars! I ended up getting a new code and calling back to OnTech to schedule the appointment that was available next day!

    Installers arrived with gloves and I gave them a couple masks to wear. The installers day job was installing satellite dishes, and if you're wondering about the installation process...it's the same. There's now an antenna on my roof, pointed at the carrier I chose (AT&T) and a cable running down my roofline and down my water spout. Guys....talk over your purchase decision with your spouses before signing up!

    The first attempt at indoor antenna placement was in the utility room where the cables come into the house and the power supply was already going to be mounted. Sitting in my office roughly 50 feet away I didn't discern any noticeable increase in signal, but as I walked towards the antenna the signal increased significantly. The star deducted is simply due to the fact that the indoor antenna just isn't that strong. Because the area I was hoping to improve was in my office they suggested placing in there. I already had a cable hookup that I wasn't using so it was a pretty simple process.

    Results:

    My AT&T phones went from fluctuating from 1-2 bars to 3-4 bars with the antenna placed on a shelf 5 feet behind where I sit at my computer. Noticeable! When I place my phone next to the antenna the signal is off the charts! I'm sure there are regulations as to how powerful the repeater can be, but man it's crazy how much signal is lost in such a short distance.

    Despite being pointed at an AT&T tower my Verizon hotspot also shows significant signal increase. Bonus! Pictures show the dBm rating at and the difference is pretty amazing.

    I threw some speed test results in there too, but I'd be leery of putting too much faith into tests like that because they were done an hour apart, and a lot of factors can be different.

    Conclusion:

    If you're struggling to get any service in your house and there are no amazing alternatives with strong fiber or cable internet providers to provide a VOIP solution, then this might be a great option for you!

    If you're like me and you get an OK signal but are just annoyed that it's not a GREAT signal then this is a 'nice to have'. If you're looking to spend that stimulus check and support a local installation company - go for it! I can't say that it's going to be a life changing purchase, but maybe it will save you a little aggravation.

    Good to have for better cell signal

    This is review of signal booster consisting of 3 main pieces of hardware that according to product info broadcast up to 7,500 sq f+ installation service that comes with the brand.

    First the problem I have: at house size of about 2,800 sq f, I have service with T-Mobile and closest tower is about 3 1/4 miles away, and very often had non consistency signal strength leading to dropping call. This is strictly in the context of Voice call context and not data service.

    Previous to installation: had around 1 or 2 bars, I guess average 2 bars.

    After Installation: It increase average 1 bar more based on 2 hours usage experience, and vary as walk around home between first floor and second floor.

    Installation detail: Inside Antenna and Booster were installed at first floor, at wall between living room and backyard. Outside Antenna installed at roof pointing to the cell tower. For this first installer gather carrier information and closest tower location that later point to the same direction. Then cable toward inside home to look for best place to install booster and inside antenna. On one hand, this has to do with installers partners with the brand, and they were acceptably diligent to go through every step and make sure it is being installed as should be and still be good for me. The total time took about close to hours.

    After installation:

    1. Signal Strength: as mentioned above, it increased about one bar in average in short time of usage, in some area less or same as before, in another spot of house had full bar, but isn't consistent one straight fashion across home. I was told it has to factor in how stable is the signal from the tower as well. At backyard where was having 1 or 2 bars, didn't impact at all.

    2. Hardware: outdoor antenna is light, indoor antenna feels to blend in well at wall except of the cable, and booster as well.

    Downsides

    1. The booster power outlet doesn't look to hold firm as upon touching slightly loosen and power off.

    2. For inside antenna, it didn't come a bracket to install at corner of house, due to this as didn't have one had to install on the flat side of the wall.

    3.Although it is pure hardware solution and can be checked with signal bars, it doesn't provide app to check its connection for receiving input to output.

    In final conclusion: before having it I expected the booster would provide reliable and consistent signal inside home. But based on short time usage leading to conclude it is good to have as support for just incase and not being dependent on wifi calling if internet connection suffer or any reason. But not to think of it as 100% reliable for consistency at anytime.

    Definitely an improvement but......

    Then cellular signal in my area has never really been great and we have had Verizon, AT&T and are currently using T-Mobile. We have been given signal boosters by two cell providers that we had plugged into outlets in the house and connected them to Wi-Fi, but none have really worked that great at significantly improving the signal out to the end of our property or in the basement.

    I ordered this hoping that it would fix my problem and after having used it for just over three days, it has fixed half of my problem. The distance has significantly increased. I can go to the end of my yard and onto my neighbor's property and still have a strong signal. However, I have seen no changes in my signal in the basement. This was a little disappointing because that's where the man cave is.

    The surprising thing is that there are two towers within two miles of my house. According to the installers, the one that is closer is actually a weaker signal. So they connected it to the furthest tower. They did tell me that if I switch providers that the booster will need to be tweaked because it is set to a specific network, which kind of surprised me, but wasn't a big deal since we have no immediate intentions on switching at the moment.

    I downloaded an app from my app store that I could use to test the speed of my mobile downloads and ran tests prior to the installation and after. In the two photos, you can see a significant increase in download/upload speeds once the booster was installed.

    The installers that came to my house were great. I had already looked online to determine where I needed to install the interior receiver and antenna and had prepped the space, but was hoping that I could possibly install everything in my garage. Fortunately, they were able to do that. I took some pictures of the equipment and where they were installed. I had an old satellite dish that I was no longer using and told them they could install it on that pole if they wanted to, which they did. I didn't want to have more holes drilled or another unsightly pole installed on my house.

    All in all, I am happy that the signal is stronger on the main parts of the house and the improved distance that I get outside. I'm a little disappointed that the signal hasn't increased at all in the basement. This is why I gave it four stars instead of three, but I would still recommend this unit as it does significantly boost your cell signal.

    No more dropped calls

    I have used a Wilson Electronics phone booster in my car in the past with great success, so a whole-home system seems like the next logical step. At home, our cell phones are the only phones used as we do not have a landline in place. I live in a rural area with OK signal (1-2 bars on my iPhone 8+), but had been experiencing randomly dropped calls and occasional inability to make calls despite signal registering on my phone. The system consists of the booster itself, an indoor antenna, and an outdoor antenna. Professional install was included with my device purchase and I would not want to do this DIY. It isn’t complicated per se, but I am not technical enough to have known where the cell tower is broadcasting from and inevitably had I done DIY, I would have crossed the antenna streams which would cause the device not to work. The booster and the indoor antenna need to be mounted within a specific proximity of one another typically in the same room. The outdoor antenna requires mounting at the highest point of your house but below the roof and facing away from the indoor antenna. Since having the device professionally installed, I am no longer dropping calls and have not had any issues with failed outbound calls. I have had to power cycle the booster a few times because its signal strength seems to vary, but I consistently get at least one green light on the booster. I have been using it for a week now. At best when first installed, I saw a full four bars of signal on my phone, but more consistently I see two bars and an occasional 3 bars. For this reason I am rating it 4* rather than 5. Had it consistently kept my signal at a full 4 bars or even boosted it consistently to 3 bars, I would give it 5 stars. This can vary based on your geographic location so someone else might experience something different than me. Regardless of how you measure signal on your phone though, I have no more dropped calls! I highly recommend this product!

    Boosts signal, but no miracle worker

    I live in a mobile home in a rural area. I either had to lean toward a window or go outside to talk on my cellphone. I had to move this unit a couple of times until I found the best place. I does boost my signal from zero bars before to two or three now. I don't have to go outside anymore to make a call.

    Still no bars

    This item was not really worth the amount we paid for it. It says that it is designed for inside use without the need for outdoor antenna however it does not work that well. We still get very little coverage. Although the set up was extremely easy I wished the signal would have been there as well.

    Disappointed

    After reading many mixed reviews on all sorts of these devices, I decided against my better judgement to give it a try. While it gives me a bar or two more and occasionally makes the voice calls clearer, it is still quite a disappointment. Still drop calls and the data is intermittent.

    DOES NOT WORK FOR VERIZON

    Before you buy this product, download the LTE Discovery app and see what band your phone is connecting to, especially if you are a Verizon Wireless customer. THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK ON BAND 66 FOR VERIZON! In fact, according to their tech team, NONE of the products offered by weboost works on Band 66 for Verizon. Not sure about other carriers, but this is a waste if you're a Verizon customer.

    Does Not Work With Weak Cell Signal

    I can’t say if this product works to boost a strong signal which, in all fairness, is what it’s intended to do. ATT suggested I try it as a fix for their weak and spotty coverage in my area. It did nothing. I was able to return it, but was not refunded the $99 Geek Squad “installation” fee, which did not include actually putting the antenna on the roof. (They are not allowed to climb above 10 feet.) For that, I had to pay a contractor. Another fee I will not recover.
