So would you pay $149.99 to boost your signal? I don’t get the point of these things really, I had a problem with a company where I couldn’t get a signal in my house and I just left the company for one that would work for me. I guess though this could have users like for a buddy of mine who goes up to the mountains a lot and has a really big problem getting a cell signal. This new booster works with Verizon 4G as well as the old 2g and 3g networks.
In areas with Verizon Wireless LTE service, the Sleek 4G-V will ensure a strong LTE signal, as well as conventional 3G or 2G signals. Benefits include fewer dropped connections and no-service “dead zones,” faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for wireless devices.
The device, with an MSRP of $149.95, boosts Verizon Wireless’ 700 MHz LTE, as well as all carriers’ 3G and 2G cellular signals on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz frequency bands. Designed for use in a vehicle, the Sleek 4G-V can also be used indoors with the purchase of an optional accessory kit – perfect for boosting signal to 4G wireless hotspots like the Verizon JetPack.
In areas not served by Verizon Wireless LTE, the Sleek 4G-V will amplify any existing signal on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands. This allows the user to enjoy a strong, reliable cellular signal, even when no 4G service is available.
The Sleek 4G-V delivers more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone signal alone, but weighs only three ounces (85 grams) and measures just 2.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches (6.4 x 11.4 6.4 cm). Simple, do-it-yourself installation is done in a matter of minutes.
The Sleek 4G-V will be available in the second quarter of 2012 from most Wilson resellers. It is designed for ideal use with a Bluetooth headset or other hands-free device. Additionally, like all Wilson signal boosters, the Sleek 4G-V features very sophisticated cell tower protection technologies developed over more than a decade of research and development.
