weBoost Drive Reach vs weBoost Drive 4G-X: Which is Better?

The weBoost Drive Reach (470154) is out now, and makes some pretty bold claims as to its power. But while it might be newer, is it actually better than the weBoost Drive 4G-X?

We conducted several thorough tests to figure out the answer to this question, and we’re happy to share them with you here in our official weBoost Drive Reach review.

The Tests

test site

For this test, we went to a suburban area that was in the process of being developed in the southwestern Houston area. The outdoor signal was consistently less than -110 dBm for all carriers, owing to the distance from the nearest cell tower. As you can see, we installed the Drive Reach under the back seat, and did the same for the Drive 4G-X, to ensure similar coax cable runs.

We also tested both vehicle boosters while driving around a forested area, which are notorious for spotty signal.

For these tests, we used exactly what came in the box for both signal boosters. We tested all carriers, but for the sake of space, we’ll only show AT&T and Verizon images.

The Results

  • T-Mobile - Before: -120, After: -108
  • Sprint - Before: -113, After: -90 (does not include Band 41, which means it fluctuates wildly)

As you can see, the Drive 4G-X gives moderately boosted signal, being brought from the -100dBm to the -90dBm range, turning unusable signal into usable signal. It particularly performs best on Verizon. It's definitely better than having no booster at all in a weak signal area.

  • T-Mobile - Before: -120, After: -108
  • Sprint - Before: -113, After: -95 (this includes Band 41, so this reading is stable)
  • While Moving (AT&T) - Before: -102, After: -76

While the Drive 4G-X gave decent results, it’s clear the Reach is able to do more. The worst signal we received with the Reach active was -95 dBm from Sprint, which was -90 dBm with the Drive 4G-X but lacked consistency. Each and every other reading was superior.


If you really value your signal on the road, the Drive Reach is a no brainer. It may cost $50 more, but it is simply a better product than the Drive 4G-X. Wilson Electronics has truly created an impressive booster here.
