WeBoost Eqo signal booster works in any home, for any carrier

I live relatively far from a major metropolitan area, so my cellular connection is not always the best. Sometimes, I have to take meetings with my head out the back door so I can get more than one bar of signal. The struggle is real.

WeBoost hopes to help alleviate that struggle with the Eqo signal booster. It’s two devices: a main amplifier with a built-in antenna and a satellite amplifier, which you’d theoretically put by a window in your house to help fill in any gaps of coverage from the outside.

From our test at CES, the Eqo works ridiculously well and takes mere minutes to set up. It works on all five major LTE bands in the U.S., including those used by Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The only downside is that the Eqo is limited to 1,200 square feet, so you’ll need a different setup if you’ve got a larger house. But for apartments and smaller town homes, this is a great way to eliminate the hassle of staying in one very particular spot of your house just to take a phone call.
