I'm using the 4G-X antenna on top of a 40' tower in a rural location that had no signal. The $200 mast got the antenna over the hill to give me 4 bars for voice and LTE for data.

I bought the weboost to use on out 47 foot boat so we would have cell and data as we cruise the inland waterway system. We had some initial compatibility issues with the antenna and power supply (we run it on 110v) but the weBoost support team worked with us to find and correct the problem. We get a solid 20db signal boost and love it!
Great product! It does everything it was intent to do, and does it consistently. I recommend it to others who have no or weak service. My prior service was only strong enough ring the cell phones 40% of the time, and if you did answer the cell phone you usually could not hear or be heard by the other person. I'm well please pleased!
We mounted the booster on the highest point we could safely reach on the house, on a pole mounted on the exterior of the home about 35 feet high. The satellite only internet available at the location is not reliable. This is a great solution for multiple users and carriers of cellular service. I purchased a Microsoft tablet with a SIM card and added it to my unlimited cellular plan. Able to stream music, Netflix and no longer have to "go into town" for a better signal. Thanks!
When I moved to a valley in the mountains with a metal-roofed home, I found that I could not get a signal on my older smartphone. Using my husband's, I could get 1-2 bars if I walked up the hill outside of our house. We both bought the latest model of smartphones, and were able to get 1 bar that faded in and out, and that was if we stood in one upstairs room and leaned into the window. We tried two different models of our mobile service's booster, but could not receive a signal on the equipment at all. It wasn't until I took a chance and purchased a Wilson booster (weBoost Connect 4G-X Cell Phone Booster Kit 471104) that we were able to consistently get 3 bars inside our house. The outside antenna is up in a tree, and we think we can ultimately find a better place for it, but it has been working for the last 6 months or so just fine. Sometimes we get a dropped call or have some trouble hearing a caller, but we can make and receive calls from anywhere in the house 90% of the time. A huge improvement over making calls outside (in the snow) or cramming into the corner of a window only to lose the call! I do not have a mobile version of the booster, but we live in a rural area and I've heard from someone locally that has one and loves it. I can highly recommend the indoor booster- it saved my sanity while I waited a few months for internet!
I recently installed a weBoost 4G-X in my home in Creston CA. I used to need to walk outside and stand out there to complete a cell phone call. Once the booster system was installed in my home I can now be anywhere in the home and enjoy Voice and data no matter where I am located inside, I even get better signal on the patio from the signal leaking out of the walls and windows! I will not delay installing one of these systems in the future.
I am the IT guy in a 16K office suite with roughly 125 cell phones, From Iphones to android, and on all 4 different carriers. Before we had staff with one bar or no service. With the Connect 4G-x everyone now has 4-5 bars of service across all carriers listed. Install was a snap and i had the complete kit up and running in two hours. I very highly recommend this system kit.
Works very well, we could make calls but no one could hear us. Installed using a 20' mast for out side antenna and running cable thru the attic. I left booster in the attic and ran cable for the inside antenna thru the wall and came out of one of our a cable outlets. Went from not being able to make calls or recive them to 4 barsLTE. I did not have enough coax the rase the mast to 20 ft, called Wilson Tech support they sent me the other 10 ft of M400 coax and a female to female adapter at no charge. These people are the real deal. I highly reccomend Wilson SKU 471104 booster. Yes its pricey but you get what you pay for.
Be sure to do your research about your signal strength, tower locations, possible installation locations, etc. before buying any booster. WE Boost and Wilson Amplifiers are very prompt to answer your questions before you purchase a booster. I am in a rural area and chose the 4GX over the Connect 4G 470103 booster. I have recently switched from AT&T to Verizon. I have a company phone (basic phone) that is still on AT&T. Unless I walked outside the AT&T phone was almost useless and the new Samsung S7 Edge on Verizon was not much better. We recently installed a WE Boost Connect 4G 470103 at my office due to the building being all metal. The signal outside was about 82 dB at the office. Inside the signal is now OK but seems like the coverage area was limited. I was concerned that my whole house would not be covered (1800 sq. ft. ranch plus basement). I have the 4GX unit installed for one week now. I went from 0-1 bar to 3-5 bars everywhere in my home, even in my basement on Verizon and AT&T. I still don't have all 4 green lights on the unit but I have great signal indoors. I still have one orange light flashing on band 5 but the closest tower is almost two miles away and I am pointed 90 degrees from it. Orange lights can mean too close proximity to a cell tower. Beware the user manual and all vendors selling the 4GX as they still say 20 feet of vertical antenna separation or 50 feet of horizontal antenna separation is adequate. On a test run before permanent mounting I saw that I had flashing red lights meaning oscillation due to the antennas being too close to each other. WE Boost tech support directed me to installation videos that I had not found elsewhere that specifies 25 to 35 feet of vertical separation. Luckily I was mounting on an existing tower and am currently at 28 feet of vertical separation and 20 feet of horizontal separation which finally resolved the flashing red lights. These support videos about installation and the meaning of the lights go on to tell you not to worry about flashing lights (red or orange) as long as you have satisfactory signal coverage inside your home. What is really odd is that using the Cell Map and Open Signal apps to determine my actual signal outside and where it is the best (and also my phone status dB) as suggested by WE Boost videos, the higher I climbed on the tower, the worse the dB reading got (110 to 115 dB). So I was very surprised to see such great signal indoors. WE Boost typically wants a minimum of 105 dB outside signal but prefer less for their boosters to work. I am now suspect of the apps and the orientation of your cell phone when trying to use these apps. Open Signal would point to a AT&T tower even though I was looking for a Verizon tower. All in all a good experience but take your time to do before purchase research. Since I had to mount the antenna so high on my tower, I am going to install a lightning arrestor. Plan your installation options and try some temporary antenna locations with cables running through the windows and across the floor before installing anything permanently. Proper hardware installation is just as or more important than the actual hardware itself.
