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!

Signal Booster...Woo-hoo!

From Julie Gray on September 20, 2011 :: 9:49 pm

I use my phone mostly while in my bedroom. I will soon be moving to an apartment where I am fairly certain the signal will be practically non-existent.

No signal in my apartment

From Kj Pope on September 20, 2011 :: 10:03 pm

I hope this can do as advertised. My personal cell service is AT&T and signal in my apartment is sketchy at best. For work my cell and wireless card are Verizon and there is absolutely no signal at home for me.

From maria rose on September 20, 2011 :: 10:51 pm

i live in a basement apartment and do not have a landline phone so cell service has to be good in all areas of apartment. I hope this works better than the airwave i had to get from sprint to get service in apartment because of cell tower blockage.

It would be great to have use of my cell phone at my house- can’t get reception now, even in the upstairs rooms.

Outside on front porch, or sometimes on couch by window in living room.  I live is a Rural area and in the past year have taken my mom in since my dad passed away. In past 3 years she has fallen and broke her neck twice so would feel better if had stronger signal.

I have a home office set up in my basement and I have to leave my cell phone on the basement step by the side door to receive my calls.  I could TRULY use this in my basement. I receive ZERO signal while down here.  Thanks!

From Thomas Irving on September 21, 2011 :: 6:47 am

The whole house.  For some reason, cell phone reception here is pretty bad (there might be an Indian burial ground near…).



From Donna Kozumplik on September 21, 2011 :: 7:07 am

I go outside to get a better signal.


This would be a gift

From Margaret Talesnick on September 21, 2011 :: 7:47 am

Answering the phone while watching tv.


Living Room

From Lisa Roberts on September 21, 2011 :: 8:59 am

I usually use mine in the living room, but, if I won it I would give it to my son. His reception is horrible at his home. He literally has to sit on his couch in a certain spot just to get 2 bars. And then it is iffy sometimes

We get poor reception in our living room

From julie petroski on September 21, 2011 :: 9:46 am

actually just about every room is an issue. our brick house seems to be blocking the signal. or maybe it’s just AT&T…

When guests come over many times there is no signal in the den.


zBoost METRO

From AF on September 22, 2011 :: 12:37 am

It would be such a relief to know that I could use my cell phone at home- especially during storm weather damage to lines. Without this, we would have to travel 1 mile by car to be able to get a signal out for emergencies. If our road is closed due to trees down, we are cut off from the rest of the world.



From susanlanai on September 22, 2011 :: 4:13 am
