Cellphone Signal Provider Offers Booster Kit for Longhaul Drivers


Cellphone-signal equipment provider weBoost introduced a booster kit for longhaul drivers.

Drive 4G-X OTR can provide a signal that is as much as 32 times stronger than other products, the company said in a statement. The unit works with all major cellphone providers and is configured to run on 3G, 4GLTE or other networks.

“In our increasingly connected world, bringing a reliable cell signal to everyone, from within city centers to the open road, is important to us,” said Bruce Lancaster, CEO of St. George, Utah-based Wilson Electronics. The company sells weBoost products.

The statement said the unit can simultaneously amplify both voice and data communications. It can handle 700, 800, 1,700 and 1,900 to 2,200 megaherz cell signals, using a 24-inch antenna.
