Cell phone signal booster company weBoost has on display at the Great American Trucking Show its most powerful signal booster for truckers – its Drive 4G-X OTR – which offers the most powerful signal boosting capabilities allowed by the Federal Communications Commission.
weBoost’s Nelson Roberts says trucks are more insulated than ever before, cutting into the amount of cell signal mobile devices can receive. Additionally, Roberts says with more video and audio streaming, a stronger signal is necessary for these devices to work properly without interruption.
Instead of switching cell service providers because of poor signal, the 4G-X OTR is designed to provide a “significant increase” to cell signal to all cellular devices from any carrier, Roberts says. The booster comes in a kit with an external truck antenna, the booster itself, a 12-volt power cord and mounting brackets. The full kit runs at $499.99.
weBoost also offers a similar product that provides a smaller boost in signal at a lower price point of $379.99, the Drive 4G-M. Each product comes with a two-year factory warranty.
