ST. GEORGE, Utah, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Promising better connections and fewer dropped calls, Wilson Electronics (www.WilsonElectronics.com), North America's leading maker of cellular signal boosters, today announced the availability of the Sleek® 4G-V, the world's first 4G signal booster designed to improve cell reception in vehicles like cars, trucks, and boats.
In areas with Verizon Wireless™ LTE service on the 700 MHz band, the Sleek 4G-V will ensure a strong LTE signal as well as conventional 3G and 2G signals. Benefits include fewer dropped connections and no-service "dead zones," faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for wireless devices.
According to published accounts, Verizon Wireless reported the company had more than eight million LTE subscribers in the first quarter of 2012. During the first three months of the year the company sold almost 3 million LTE devices.
"Devices operating on Verizon's LTE network can now benefit from Wilson signal boosting technology just as 3G and 2G devices have done for years," said Laine Matthews, Wilson's director of business development. "The Sleek 4G-V allows them to maintain a strong reliable signal in weak signal areas. It's also an ideal all-in-one phone cradle and signal booster for any driver, especially anyone living in an area where 'hands-free' driving is a must, or pro-active drivers practicing safe driving skills."
In areas not served by Verizon Wireless LTE, the cell phone signal booster will amplify any existing signal on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands (except Nextel/iDEN). This allows the user to enjoy a strong, reliable cellular signal even when no 4G service is available.
Although the Sleek 4G-V is designed for use in a vehicle, it can also be used indoors with the purchase of an optional accessory kit – where it also boosts 4G wireless hotspots like the Verizon JetPack™.
The 4G-V can also deliver more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone alone, and weighs only three ounces (85 grams) and measures just 2.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches (6.4 x 11.4 6.4 cm). Simple, do-it-yourself installation is done in a matter of minutes.
Like all Wilson cell phone boosters, the Sleek 4G-V features very sophisticated cellular network protection technologies developed over more than a decade of research and development.
