weBoost Launches the Drive 4G-X RV

Tue Apr 18, 2017

149253172760754.jpgweBoost, a St. George, Utah-based leader in cell signal boosters, has announced the launch of the Drive 4G-X RV, the brand’s most powerful and best performing in-vehicle cell phone signal booster, providing up to 32X stronger cell signal.

According to a company release, RV owners will now be able to experience "exceptional call quality, faster data uploads and downloads and fewer lost connections and dead zones when on the road or off."

The Drive 4G-X RV increases the reach of cellular signals by a maximum 50 decibels. Whether you are on a family camping trip, are running your business from the road or are chasing a storm, the Drive 4G-X RV makes the difference in reliable communication and internet access in remote areas, according to the press release.

“Just like people expect good cell coverage at the house, they expect it in their ‘home on the road,’" Wilson Electronics' CEO Bruce Lancaster says. "Part of the RV experience is not sacrificing the luxuries, comforts and necessities of home. Because it provides access to family, friends, work and all of the media we now associate with modern technology’s access to 4G cellular signal, every RV enthusiast should consider packing the Drive 4G-X RV.”

Compared to its RV predecessors, the new booster is smaller, thus taking up less of the valuable space in the RV. Setup is easier with an omnidirectional antenna, meaning the user does not need to determine the direction of the cell tower. The comprehensive Drive 4G-X RV kit includes all of the components needed for a do-it-yourself, one-time installation. This includes:

One Drive 4G-X Unit
One 4G omni antenna
One 4G desktop antenna
AC and hardwire / DC wall power supplies
20-foot, RG-6 cable with connectors preinstalled
Cable entry cover
Cable management mounts and zip ties

Accommodating up to four users across all carriers simultaneously, including Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile, the booster enhances talk, text and high-speed 4G LTE, as well as 3G network signals.

How it Works: The external antenna reaches out to access cellular signal and delivers it to the booster. The booster amplifies the signal and serves as the relay between the phone/device and the nearest cell tower. As a result, mobile devices receive stronger signals that are fed through the booster back to the network.

The Drive 4G-X RV is available for purchase now online at store.weboost.com/products/drive-4g-x-rv and through resellers for $499.99 MSRP. All boosters come with a two-year warranty.
