Wi-Ex Launches New zBoost DataBlast

January 31, 2013
Wi-Ex, a leading provider of consumer and commercial cell phone signal booster kits, has revealed its newest addition to the 4G DataBlast line.

The newest zBoost DataBlast increases 4G LTE on the AT&T network and AWS data speeds on T-Mobile. The new zBoost 4G DataBlast increases weak signal that results in 20 percent faster data speed, allowing consumers to take full advantage of voice, data and Internet services on their mobile phones including high-speed data and video, instant messaging, pictures, and more—either at home, in their personal workspace or in the office.

“With AT&T recently announcing their 4G LTE network expansion plans to cover 300 million people in the United States by the end of 2014, we are excited to offer our 4G DataBlast tailored to AT&T customers,” said Frankie Smith, Wi-Ex director of sales. “With the expansion of the 4G technology comes extreme data requirements, making a strong signal more important than ever—a low signal means SLOW data. Recent industry statistics reveal that more than 75 percent of cell phone Internet users experience slow download speeds that prevent things from loading as quickly as they would like.”

The zBoost DataBlast comes kit complete for easy install including base unit, base unit antenna, power supply, low-loss SATV coaxial cable RG-59 (mini), signal antenna and mounting hardware. The omni-directional signal antenna receives signals from multiple cell towers. Additional benefits of the zBoost DataBlast include:

In addition, Wi-Ex introduced the zBoost DataBlast UPGRADE. The new zBoost DataBlast UPGRADE enables previously installed booster products to split the signal cable and establish a new 4G Data Zone in conjunction with the zBoost.

“With 4G cell phone shipments projected to hit 275 million units in 2013 and recent reports showing more than 77 percent of cell internet users experiencing slow download speeds that prevent things from loading as quickly as they would like, a strong 4G signal is becoming a necessity for today’s consumers and businesses,” Smith said. “Our new upgrade allows customers to add on to their current unit providing multiple users a strong signal putting an end to dropped calls and slow data including 4G.”

The zBoost DataBlast UPGRADE comes kit complete, ensuring an easy set up through four simple steps. The package includes base unit, whip antenna, power supply, quad-band signal antenna with mounting hardware and signal combiner.
                          
The only requirements in order to use the DataBlast UPGRADE is to have an existing 2G/3G boosting system that uses RG-6 or RG-11 coaxial cable and a strong outside signal. Currently shipping, the DataBlast UPGRADE retails for $299.
