The major knock against most in-home or in-office cellphone signal boosting products is the fact that they tend to be a bit cumbersome when it comes to the installation process. weBoost believes it has found a solution, and it rolled that product out to the tech world this week at CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
During CES Unveiled on Monday night, the company displayed its first plug-and-play “eqo” booster that it said provides up to 32-times better cell signal. It’s design, which does not include or require an exterior antenna, makes it particularly suited to the demands of today’s consumers and small business owners, weBoost said. In fact, the company said the new plug-and-play product can be set up in under a minute—a huge improvement over other signal boosting solutions.
The eqo Booster, which works across all major US and Canadian carrier networks, includes two parts—a discrete signal booster and an antenna to send the signal throughout the home or small office. The eqo Booster is simply placed in a spot in the home or office where a signal is available, it’s then plugged into an electrical outlet, the antenna is connected, and that’s it. The eqo Booster “changes the game for cell signal boosting with its simplicity,” the company said.
