Comparison between zBoost vs Wilson Pro Cell Phone Signal Boosters.

Robert Van Buskirik, President and CEO, Wilson Electronics, has rightly quoted, “In old days, you ran inside to answer the phone. Now you run outside to answer it.” In the wake of the technological boom of the 90s, cell-phones and other wireless communication devices came to become ubiquitous. Now, a significant part of our lives and our work are unfalteringly dependent on these devices, which in turn look up to an uninterrupted supply of tower signals to ensure seamless and error-free connections and services. While carrier companies are trying hard to add more cell-phone towers and expand their coverage areas, the problem still seems to persist. Hence, the FCC's approval of cell signal phone boosters comes as a boon.

So, what is a cell phone signal booster?

A cell phone signal booster, cell phone amplifier or cellular repeater is a device that amplifies weak signals from outside to stronger, more usable signals and broadcasts them inside to be used by smartphones and other wireless devices. While there are many players in the cell phone signal booster market, two of the names we most often hear are zBoost and Wilson Pro. Though both zBoost and Wilson Pro are both owned by Wilson Electronics, both are directed at different markets: zBoost for value-line markets while Wilson Pro for Enterprise solutions.
