The Winegard ConnecT 4G1 WiFi Extender + 4G LTE RV internet system was recently awarded second place Product of the Year at the annual Recreational Vehicle Aftermarket Association Executive Conference held Aug. 15-17 in San Diego, California.
RVAA judges all products based on the following criteria: innovation, functionality, value, quality, technology and overall impression. The panel consists of select RV industry professionals and distributors.
"Winegard strives to be on the cutting edge with its product offerings and the Winegard ConnecT is no different," Winegard Director of Sales and Marketing Keith Larson says. “We are pleased that RVAA recognized not only the quality and performance of the ConnecT, but also the value Winegard provides RV users by keeping them connected."
Designed specifically for the mobile environment, Winegard ConnecT 4G1 is a long-range, high-performance WiFi extender that increases the range of existing WiFi hotspots. When WiFi is not available, the ConnecT 4G1 utilizes high-gain 4G LTE antennas to connect to a nationwide data network and provide connectivity in areas where cell coverage may be weak or not available (monthly fee applies).
