eqo Booster Cuts Out Installation Headaches and Improves Signal Up to 32X Across All Major Carriers

ST. GEORGE, UTAH—April 11, 2016— Dropped client calls? #Failed family conversations? Good news: you can improve your cellular signal at home in under a minute with a new product from weBoost. Today weBoost®, the global leader in cell signal boosters, announced the availability of the eqo (/ˈekō/) Booster, the most cost-effective booster in its category, now available in-store at select BestBuy and Micro Center retail locations, and online at BestBuy.com, Amazon.com and MicroCenter.com for $349.99

"Historically, signal boosters required a lengthy installation, and were accompanied by a price tag of around $400 or more," said Bruce Lancaster, weBoost CEO. "We felt that both of these factors were significant barriers to entry for consumers, and with the eqo, weBoost is breaking down those barriers, allowing everyone the opportunity to experience an improved signal in their home or office.

How Does It Work?

All cell phone signals are wireless signals, and the eqo Booster works by amplifying those wireless signals. The eqo Booster includes two parts – a discrete signal booster and an antenna to broadcast that signal throughout the home. Simply place the eqo signal booster unit in an area where signal is available, plug it into an electrical outlet and connect the antenna, then watch the signal bars go up.

Why eqo?

  • Previously, signal boosters required either professional installation or extensive DIY know-how. They also required extra time and effort to cleverly hide equipment and cables out of the way in the home. The eqo Booster deftly solves both of these issues providing:
  • Better Signal Without Installation Hassle: Delivering up to 32X better signal, the new eqo Booster is constructed for easy plug-and-play set-up, requiring just a minute of your time, and does not require an exterior antenna like boosters from previous generations.
  • A Living-Room Ready Design: With a sleek finish and discreet design that fits right in with other home electronics, the eqo provides consumers with a signal booster that blends with any living room's aesthetics.

Capabilities for All Carriers: Whether you have T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, AT&T or Sprint, the eqo will amplify signals simultaneously from all major carriers in the US and Canada, including 4G LTE and 3G bands.

Where Can I Buy eqo?

The eqo Booster is available for purchase now online at buy.weboost.com/eqo/ and at participating retailers for $349.99. The eqo Booster can also be purchased in-store at select BestBuy and Micro Center retail locations, and online at BestBuy.com, Amazon.com and MicroCenter.com.

  • "Historically, signal boosters required a lengthy installation, and were accompanied by a price tag of around $400 or more," said Bruce Lancaster, weBoost CEO.

Well, a $50 savings over a $400 competitor isn't much.
  • they should sell it at $250 if they want to make any real money. Otherwise, it's just another product sitting in warehouses that no one cares about. Posted via Universal Windows App on W10
  • In my experience, these are hit or miss.
     
  • They don't work in every situation.  They do a great job of taking weak/marginal signal and making it usable, but they can't make signal where it doesn't exist.  Zero times anything is still zero.  Also, a lot of people set them up poorly because they don't understand how it works or just being lazy.  The most common being that they place the external antenna to close to the internal antenna creating a feedback loop or the external antenna is mounted in a place that has equally bad reception.
  • First I was like, "cool"....then I saw the price and I was like, "#*$%&#???"
  • Yeah and I bet it's more than $400 when currency conversion into Canadian Dollars. Posted via Universal Windows App on W10
  • Aye, a tad too pricey for most I presume?
  • It depends.  If it's the difference between having cell signal in your house, or having to pay extra for a land line or VoIP service, then it could pay for itself in less than a year (not to mention the convenience factor of being able to use your cell phone in your own home).
  • "It's not a tumor."
  • Bought my Verizon booster for $100
  • That requires an internet connection, this does not, FYI.  This is also supposed to work with any carrier/phone
  • Still. $400? 1200 sq ft? Doesn't compare. My Verizon one provides almost double the coverage area.
  • Agreed.  Just pointing that out.  I did have a Verizon one after the z-boost I mentioned below.  It was very reliable.  But we switched to AT&T, because there is a tower lined up with the valley I'm in, and I don't need any boosters.
  • I would only buy a new signal booster if I could get it at a major retailer, and a decent warranty to go along with it.  I got one years ago (z-boost, IIRC), and it worked about a year, but then it would drop signal over and over again. Not something I was willing to spend that kind of money on again, without any kind of guarantee or an easy route for a replacement.  Installation wasn't any worse than running a cable line, with the receiver in the attic for the best signal. 
  • BTW, nice car.  Mines a CGM 2010 SS
  • I wish I had one, but not mine.  I rented one before if that counts.... Maybe I should change my profile pic to something I own, but nobody cares to look at an '04 Grand Prix or Avalanche, lol.  I do have a nice shot of me jumping my Polaris Scrambler, that might be better.
  • The microcell I got from ATT was $75. It uses internet signal, but that sure beats $350
  • Lol man, for $350, I'd rather be texted and get the messages. Definitely not for consumers, more for business home users or small businesses with no land lines.
