Mobile phone signal improvement - zBoost zP

"We are happy to announce the zP at this low price point," said Lloyd R. Meese, President and CEO of Wi-Ex. "We looked at the marketplace compared to our current product offering and found a consumer need based on travel, as well as smaller spaces. The zBoost zP provides a unique solution for those consumers and takes only minutes to set-up with a very small footprint." According to the zBoost Cell Phone Signal Survey recently commissioned by Wi-Ex and conducted by Harris Interactive, 69% of cell phone owners have experienced service problems such as dropped calls (46%), poor signal reception (39%) or dead zones (33%).


zBoost zP cell phone signal boost - Antenna

The zBoost zP repeats and amplifies a cell phone signal from outside the building to a consumer's phone and is ideal for dorms, hotel rooms, condos or apartments all while maintaining the integrity of the carriers network. Like all Wi-Ex products, the zBoost zP uses patent-pending technology to protect the carrier network. In addition, it supports voice calls or data services and works with all phones and carriers except Nextel. The package includes everything consumers need to improve their cell phone signal including a small window mount base unit and indoor antenna. The unit is designed to sit or hang in the window and a simple indoor antenna is cabled up to 20 feet across the room. The device comes in 2 flavors - wired and wireless. The wireless antenna sits on your desk, the wired version must be connected to your phone. The zBoost zP is easy to set-up and provides "take-with-you" convenience with a small footprint.
