  1. You don't understand the db in regards to radio, higher is better but they're all negative numbers. below -100 dBA is pretty terrible below -110 is pretty much no signal, -50 db is just about ideal.

  2. I love my booster. I live off grid with 1 bar taking me hours to upload video to youtube. with booster gone from 1 hour per minute of video to about 5 minutes per minute of video. huge difference. .

  3. Good to know. My other friend just hooked his up this evening. Same company. He has not done any tests yet. Upload speeds are everything. Uploading video is the most time consuming problem I have being a youtuber. I wonder what satellite wifi quality, speed and cost is? Without internet we cannot work. Thanks for the review. Gonna go see what this product retails for. Thanks for the video CVK

  4. Wow..so cool of the company to seek you out and give you the product for free! Well…that was pretty darn clever… Like you say..they knew it would improve your signal and they also knew that with your having over 145,000 subscribers… they'll make the sales with your review and 👍 up! Great review for a great product! Good job Eric! 😊

  5. I'm really surprised you didn't have a cell booster a long time ago. Figured you had one but never talked about it. We have the cheaper cradle version and it works great. That was pretty nice of them to give you that expensive RV unit.

  6. Great video and great information, thanks so much for this one and I added this one to my playlist.
    PS, WOW! your facial hair sure does grow back fast. I like both looks but preferred the bare face look, as it made you look so much younger. 😎😉❤

  7. audio signal and RF signals are measured differently ( in reverse )
    cell tower RF signal is measured in -db, -90db is stronger than -100db
    32x signal improvement is a 15db improvement, every 3db signal improvement is a doubling of measured electrical strength at the receiver
    going from a -100db signal strength (use an app or look in settings) to a -85db is a 15db aka 32x signal strenght increase
    over -101 is pretty weak signal, -85 is good, under -60 fantastic
    the readings represent how far the signal is from max saturation of the receiving antenna
    panda 'aja' got one of those a while back
    i have had a 'wilson sleek' cradle model for many years, in fact my current one is my second one, i got my first one when only 3G was available, got the second one when i got my first 4G cellphone,
    i've been looking at the 'newer' ones like you bought, plus the residential ones, with more inside coverage area, got to watch the spacing/distant between outside & inside antennas
    you going to enjoy this, surprised it took you this long to get one

  8. Even better is adding Wilson's Yagi antenna that works with the boosters. It's directional and it will increase the signal even more. Thumbs up this comment if you agree!

  9. Awesome. We have the smaller weBoost that we bought last year. Was camping at a state park in Florida. Realized I needed to pay the mortgage. No bars. Well one would come and go and it wasn’t enough for us to get online. Went and bought the weBoost at Best Buy (could of saved money and just paid it when we got a better cell phone signal). Got back to the state park and hooked it up. It brought in a strong 2 bars and we were able to access the internet. We have ZTE Mobley with the unlimited data for $20/month and it works in it also. Hopefully one day we can get the bigger RV version.

  10. Well… I heard about it first here. This booster is what I really need. Very remote.

  11. If you get the directional outdoor yagi antenna for remote locations youll be amazed how much further youll be able get service

  12. I have a weBoost 4G-M and use it exclusively for my data plan on my rig…and not really for the cellphone call boosting…that is just an extra add on for me :). I love the thing though it has made my life much better!!

  13. I would like to see a review at 3 months, 6 months & a year – just to see the effectiveness around the country plus how you like the product over time. 😉

  14. Since the antenna is sticking up above the ladder slightly, do they have an accessory that would allow you to flip the antenna down for traveling or to allow you to keep the antenna flipped down until you get set up in your campsite, then flip it up so you can use it.

  15. Eric, dude, Great video with very clear descriptions and demonstrations. I appreciate all your efforts to get great info out to us. Thanks and hope to run into you out on the road some day! RollingRob out.

  16. I have the Wilson it sucks.. now it it's 400 dollar paper weight it's over heats and makes a high pitch noise now. Another thing I also get fake 4g lte..

  17. 😂 $500 yeah they can keep that shit there are a lot cheaper systems that work just as good if not better.

  18. Looks like this will be a great addition to your RV Life, just be mindful that you have now increased the height of your RV by a few inches so make sure when going under low bridges you have enough clearance room for the new booster, my advice would be get somebody to help you have a measuring tape you stand on top of your RV and your helper take the end of the Tape measure hold it right to the ground then you can see the exact height of top of the new booster, ad an inch two to the height and make a note of it and in your drivers cab have a sticker sign made up and put above your windshield with the clearance height you need and also have a sticker somewhere on your dashboard with the height clearance so you can easily so it while driving so if you are due to go under a low ish bridge a few miles or kilometres away you can look at your height sticker just to make sure that you will go under the bridge without damaging you new booster. Safe travels Eric and Jax.

  19. WOW! Appears to work well Eric. But for $500 that may be a bit steep for the Average RVer. Thanks for another great video Bud.
