New zBoost Reach Keeps Suburban and Rural Signal-Challenged Consumers Connected with a Reliable Indoor Cell Phone Signal
Las Vegas – January 6, 2014 – zBoost, a leading provider of consumer cell phone signal booster kits, announced today the launch of its zBoost Reach™ line of cell phone signal booster kits to be showcased at the International CES 2014 in booth 80032, LVCC Gold Lot from January 7-10. The zBoost Reach line includes the zBoost Reach, zBoost Xtreme Reach, zBoost Cellular Reach and zBoost Cellular Xtreme Reach and provides signal-challenged consumers in suburban and rural areas with a solution to dead zones, dropped calls and choppy voice. The entire line of boosters complies with the new FCC rules that are set to take effect March 1, 2014.
“We know first-hand, our rural and suburban customers face more challenges when it comes to carrier service. Our Reach line is the newest version of our suburban and rural product line. These kitted solutions are designed to meet the needs of rural and suburban signal-challenged consumers by using both internal and external antennas that provide a higher gain allowing for a stronger signal in those harder to reach areas,” said Karen Reynolds, president of zBoost. “Our boosters have always been kitted and include patented technology to protect the carrier network. Now the new FCC ruling requires that everyone kit their cell phone signal booster products for consumers.”
Cell phone dead zones continue to pose a problem for many consumers in metropolitan, suburban and rural areas. Deadcellzones.com estimates that 50% of US homes do not have seamless wireless coverage and may require indoor solutions to provide a reliable indoor cell phone signal.
”We have all seen the cell phone coverage maps and the huge gaps in the coverage areas for suburban and rural areas. We developed these products to meet the needs of those signal-challenged consumers,” said Frank Smith, vice-president of zBoost. “We see the FCC ruling as a win for consumers as it removes inferior boosters from the market. Boosting cell phone signal is not easy and we have seen many competitors come and go. We look forward to moving forward with our new products and continuing to provide consumers with a kitted solution that protects the carrier network and helps put an end to dead zones for rural and suburban consumers.”
The zBoost Reach line provides suburban and rural consumers with an enhanced cell phone signal on all connected devices operating on the 800 and 1900 MHz frequency for up to 7500 square feet.
