It’s hard to beat a day on the water.
Spending time floating on a calm lake with your family?
Having a get-together with friends at the dock of the bay?
Yup, there's nothing more relaxing or exhilarating than spending the day on your boat or yacht. Unless you've got poor cell phone signal. Then it becomes a list of problems:
And let’s face it: we live in a world where we're always connected and convenience is in the palm of our hands. Our social lives, our jobs, and even our safety can depend on it.
That’s why, as someone who knows about poor signal on the water, having full bars and reliable coverage is well worth the investment.
Luckily, there’s a solution: it's called a marine signal booster.
It has the ability to boost your weak 3G & 4G signal up to 32X.
Providing you better talk, text, internet, and constant connection when you're out there. Works for all phones & all US & Canadian carriers.
Your cell phone’s signal strength depends on a variety of factors, some of which you can control and others you can’t.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the two main factors that can cause poor reception while on the water:
That means, the further out you travel from the shore, the weaker your cellular signal is likely to be, resulting in a higher frequency of dropped calls, achingly slow emails, and text messages that just won’t go through.
And while it’s unlikely your cell signal is coming in contact with any objects from the shore to your boat, the journey from the tower to the shore might be reducing your overall signal strength.
The concept behind a signal booster is a simple one: take the existing signal coming in and amplify it to a level that powers all your 3G & 4G signal. Instead raising your phone or looking for nearest cell phone tower, you can let this nifty device solve the problem for you.
Here’s how a marine signal booster works:
When it comes to deciding on which signal booster to buy, without question weBoost from Wilson Electronics is the industry leader. And here are the two marine signal boosters we know get the job done.
weBoost Drive 3G-X + Marine Kit
This professional grade booster is the most powerful dual-band 3G signal amplifier for your boat or yacht.
It works with all phone models and carrier networks and offers maximum uplink power for wider range as well as faster uploads. Up to 4 people can use the boosted signal from this amplifier at one time.
If all you need is a 2G or 3G signal, then this booster is for you. Great for talk & text. For high-speed internet like streaming video/music services and websites, look into the 4G model.
The weBoost X series are pro models, so expect whole boat & yacht coverage.
weBoost Drive 4G-X + Marine Kit
Specially crafted to offer improved signals on the 4G and 4G LTE band frequencies as well as 3G and 2G, the professional power of the Drive 4G-X + Marine Essentials Kit is the best way to give you and your fellow passengers.
It's the most powerful marine signal booster in the market. So no worries if you're having poor reception with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or any other carrier. Antenna is weather-resistant, so no worries about the outside elements such as salt and rain.
As a weBoost X series model, it provides the quickest, most responsive internet and cell signal strength on your boat or yacht. Powers up to 4 different devices. Bar none the best 4G boat signal booster that weBoost offers.
