A comparison between zBoost vs weBoost brand cell phone signal boosters.

A cell phone signal booster – also known as an amplifier, or repeater - is a device that improves weak signals from outside to stronger, more usable signals. The booster broadcasts them inside to be used by smartphones and other wireless devices.

Often, due to environmental and man-made obstructions, interference can lead to a diminishing signal by the time it reaches your cell phone. This is when cell phone signal boosters can come handy, within residences, offices and even on the move.
