My mother in-law has lived in a valley in rural Vermont without reliable internet for almost 15 years now. She recently switched over to AT&T for LTE internet access. The connection was there, but speeds were too low to do much. It was slightly better than her DSL connection, but still not workable (for Zoom meetings in particularâ€”which she needs to run her business). So, I took a chance and helped her order the Home Multiroom setup. The installation was easy (although you need a minor knowledge of light electrical work to run the cable in a way that looks good), and after tweaking the direction of the antennas a bit the signal has gone from 1 bar to 3-4 bars. But, more importantly, the download speeds on her LTE connection went from 0.2-1.5 Mbps to 5-30 Mbps. We are now full believers in this technology. She can do her Zoom meetings whenever she needs, and we can sit around and watch Netflix on our iPad. This setup instantly changed her life.
Doesn't work on Sprint
Did not help my new Sprint service at all

Because my wife and I have been forced to work from home due to the Coronavirus situation, we needed our phones to work as internet hotspots. Before getting the weBoost, we could not engage in remote meetings except by landline telephone and couldn't upload big files. Our kids had trouble completing their schoolwork as well. Once we installed the signal booster, though, all of these things changed, and we have no issues with these tasks.
Went from 1X or weak 3G signal at cabin to solid 4G
Originally, at our cabin that's about 5 miles from a cell tower, the signal inside ranged from no-signal to 1X. Outside it was at best a 2-bar 3G. We purchased the MultiRoom unit and installed the exterior antenna about 25 feet off of the ground on the TV antenna mast. When we hooked everything up we had solid 4G inside of the cabin. We've had multiple family members using it at the same time with their smart-phones and the speeds are great. The only caution I'd advise is to remember that the "5,000 square foot" coverage is likely based on ideal conditions. When you start putting walls in the way of the interior signal, the effective range will drop. We're able to cover all of our 600+ sq foot cabin even though the interior antenna is near one end of the cabin and there's a couple of walls in between it and the back bedroom at the other end of the cabin. So if you're picking which model to purchase, I'd say go larger than the ideal advertised estimated range. I think for a little extra money, you'll likely be happier with the end result.
In my same circumstance I would not buy it again
This unit did not improve the cell signal in my home. I purchased a 3G unit several years ago. I was losing calls in my house. After I installed the new 4G/5G ready unit it did not improve my cell signal even with a new iPhone X unless I switched the phone back to 3G manually. I contacted weboost prior to my purchase and was not advised I may have the same problem after spending $500 + !!!
I live way out in the countryside miles from the city, I often had to go out on the front porch to make a call, and inbound calls usually went directly to voice mail. Always had 2 bars outside, 1 bar inside. Now, I have 3 bars inside. It works as expected.
Outstanding experience across the board
I was completely impressed by Weboost starting from the first inquiry about their products. The sales staff knew A LOT about the product and answered all my questions. They were obviously well trained and more interested in solving a problem with me than logging another win in the sales column. Impressive packaging with very clear instructions to make a successful install. Can't imagine using anyone else for these type of products. Keep up the good work. Customer service and product knowledge matter!
I live in a rural area monopolized by another cell phone service, so where I live I cannot get more than a weak 3G signal. The booster helped so I can get full LTE service in my house. It's a total life saver as the satellite internet is not the best for phone service or tv streaming services.
Working Great Way better Than Expected!
We have a nosiness located in the rural East Tennessee foothills and have always been captive to AT&T for our hard lines , toll Free, and international lines for 22 years! As price points grew and grew for their services, the services seemed to decline as prices went up. After trying a booster from China which was returned within 24 hours we decided to try WeBoost -WOW from the minute we plugged in the power supply and everything rebooted we have 4 -5 bars with no antenna adjustment!!!! Strongly recommend this product !!!!
Would definitely buy again.
Great quality product. Without it, my cell service would not work at times in the Texas Hill Country.
