In an age where being unable to use your smartphone is an increasingly scary proposition, signal boosters are getting a strong look. While these used to be viewed as a luxury, the desire to make sure that a user has the strongest signal they can have at all times has brought them back in a big way. That is one of the reasons a company, like Wilson Electronics, has doubled its efforts to put out a truly top of the line signal booster. The end result was the 4G-V, a signal booster that is specifically designed for use in vehicles that works on 2G, 3G and LTE networks alike.
Wilson’s 4G-V is a signal booster, which promises that because it can operate on almost any network with almost any provider, there will be less dropped calls and better voice and data connections. The signal booster will also mean there will no longer be any service “dead zones” and there will even be improved battery life for devices taking advantage of the booster. The ability to connect to LTE networks is relatively new to the signal booster game and it should give Wilson Electronics a leg up. LTE networks, such as Verizon’s are boasting more than eight million subscribers at the moment with nearly three million LTE devices sold in the first quarter of 2012 alone.
"Devices operating on Verizon's LTE network can now benefit from Wilson signal boosting technology just as 3G and 2G devices have done for years," Laine Matthews, Wilson's director of business development saidin a recent press release. "The Sleek 4G-V allows them to maintain a strong reliable signal in weak signal areas. It's also an ideal all-in-one phone cradle and signal booster for any driver, especially anyone living in an area where 'hands-free' driving is a must, or pro-active drivers practicing safe driving skills."
If the 4G-V user is not using a device that can connect to an LTE network, they will still be able to connect to most signals on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands. The 4G-V is designed to be used in a vehicle but Wilson has also put out a home accessory kit.
