Congratulations to our winner: Serenity from Raymondville, TX!

zBoost METROAre there rooms in your home where you wish you could use your cell phone but you just don't get a good signal? An indoor signal booster, like the zBoost METRO from Wi-Ex, can help.

Designed for use in apartments and small homes, the zBoost METRO can boost signal for an area up to 1500 sq ft inside your home. Simply mount the zBoost METRO's antenna inside a window in your home where you get the best reception (using the included suction cups) and then place the base unit where you want to strengthen the cell signal.

The zBoost METRO works with all U.S. cellular providers - AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon - and enables you to take full advantage of your cell phone's voice, data and Internet services, including 3G data, streaming video, instant messaging, sending pictures, and more.

Benefits include:

  • Supports multiple users simultaneously
  • Decreases dropped or missed calls
  • Easy to set up – comes complete with everything you need
  • No cradle or connections to your phone
  • Extends phone battery life (uses less power when signal is stronger)

The zBoost METRO retails for $299. Enter the zBoost METRO giveaway through September 27th, 2011 for a chance to win one of your own!

Winning this would be great!

From Larry Waters on September 20, 2011 :: 10:39 am

My house is large but there are specific rooms like the master bedroom where my signal is less than optimum. 

It would be great not to have to get out of bed when someone calls!

singal inconsistent at desk

From Dennis Goodwater on September 20, 2011 :: 10:44 am

My desk is located about the center of my brick 4-plex and occasionally breaks up then drops.  Any booster might make that a bygone concern.

From Anne Miller on September 20, 2011 :: 11:09 am

We only use our cell phones by our windows in our bedrooms because we have a weak signal.  We could get rid of our landline if this would work in the rest of our house.  Thank you for the contest!

I would love to be able to use my phone in the living room.  We can only get signal in certain areas upstairs and that’s usually just enough to send a text, not to make a call. Thanks for the chance!

I use my cell mostly in the dining room, however, I have great signal all over the house. The problem is none of my other family members (different carriers) have service anywhere in the house - they have to go outside to use their phones which can get quite annoying!
