Giving mobile signals a boost. Latest from Wi-Ex.

Techstination feature for Friday, October 12, 2012

    Giving that mobile signal a boost.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   While mobile carriers have made improvements over the years, there are still all too many places where cell phone signals are weak, to say the least.   A company called Wi-Ex has been making equipment to help consumers get better signals in homes, offices and cars.   The latest is the zBoost DataBlast, which works with Verizon and T-Mobile LTE signals.  The company’s Roni Pridemore…

“And what it does is if you have a low signal in your home, data will not, it doesn’t work.  It’s so painfully slow that you really don’t want to use it.   So, what this product does is it can increase the speed data up to twenty times.  And there’s just a lot of interest in it because everyone is going to 4G.”

The list price is 400 dollars, but you can find it for less.   There’s more info on the full line at  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
