4G repeater kit promises to boost 4G coverage for HTC EVO for $495

Sprint-repeater If the 4G signal is weak in all the places you use your HTC EVO the most (work and home), then Wireless Coverage Solutions' Sprint 4G repeater kit may be the answer to your WiMAX prayers.

Assuming you have no problem spending $495 to test the company's claims of "guaranteed coverage for your home, office, cabin, warehouse or facility" due to the product's ability to capture a signal with a "high gain external aerial antenna" and feed the input to the repeater, which then "amplifies and rebroadcasts a strong and clear signal." This 60 dB repeater works exclusively with Sprint's 4G network, supports 10 simultaneous users, and is said to give 4G coverage a boost for areas up to 5,000 square feet.

How well it actually works may be a $495 risk for you to take, but if you want to "boost bars, extend range and stop slow connection today," then the link below is supposedly the way to do it.

  • Sure wish we’d get a review instead of just links. Anyone can find a link but to give a review would provide much more valuable information to the readers.

  • Interesting, but if I had an extra $495 to spend I would go for a new off contract EVO 3D since I’m ages away from upgrade eligibility.

    If you’re at work or home, why would you need a good 4G signal? Couldn’t you just connect to your home wireless network and use way less battery? They only time I need 4G is if I’m on the road, I connect to wifi at work and home.

  • I suppose, but in my case I live in the middle of nowhere with nothing but dial-up and satellite internet as viable sources for internet. I’d love to have a 4G signal (or even a 3G signal) that I could tether my home PC to.

    if this were able to provide a 4g signal where there is no 4g coverage. it’s be worth every penny.

  • Unless Wireless Coverage Solutions is going to give Jenn a unit to review I doubt she is going to shell out nearly half a grand just so she can review something.

  • But does it come with a car adapter?

    I could understand that, but you’d need 4G coverage in your area for this to repeat the signal. This doesn’t give coverage where previously none existed

    I know a lot of the radioshack stores had these in store when the Evo 4G first came out. On the Sprint coverage map, am literally no more than 150 yards from what they call “on street” coverage.

    Like everyone else, I wish I could test it. If I could point that high gain antenna at the coverage area, and bring it into my house, I would be set!

    I haven’t had a home wifi network since I bought my Evo. I get great 4G at work, and if I could get it at home, I wouldn’t need anything else.

  • Actually, it might…depending on the gain of the Yagi antenna used. If it will reach out and snag a 4G signal where my phone couldn’t, then it would in fact give coverage where previously none existed. Definitely plausible.

  • Then why post a link to it? Yay, a link to $500 product that has no review. I can find lots of links to products.

    I never asked her to shell out the money. If this was good unit, then send a request to the company and ask for a demo unit. Do a review then post the link with the review. That would help people much more. Just saying…

    FYI:
    I’m not flaming, I come here 5 times a day just to see what updates she posts.

    Pointless when 3G works just as fine. Now if there’s no 3G, then maybe, but still no, unless it was free like an Airave

  • (Up to, not guaranteed)5000 square feet is like the size of two 3-4 bedroom houses. That’s not a lot of coverage for 500 bucks. It’s probably best marketed towards people with obstructions around their workplace or home.

  • I just wonder what the range is. I’m an hour from DC and Baltimore, it’s not likely that a repeater would EVER pick up that signal. If it did, I’d be all about it; especially since I’m paying that extra $10/month for premium data when the signal is a weak and spotty 3G.

  • $500 would be worth it if I could cancel my wired connection. It’d pay for itself in 4 months.

    FYI… you can have differing opinions and not agree without making every little thing into a battle. It was my opinion, which can differ from yours.

  • I couldn’t agree more. Thank you for the FYI.

    Exactly! Which, with 4G you completely could. Like one person posted, you almost could with 3G, but there are still a number of things that would just be too slow.

    In my case, this might make perfect sense.

  • Hey Group,
    Check out accessorygeeks.com they sell them for mobile as well as hom/work.
    Having personal experiance with Wilson they work great!!
    I used mine in a tower crane I was 800′ up and signal problems up there are an every day way of life, 3 of us went in on one and there were no problems after that.
    I also have the mobile version in my truck and I have NO problems at all where ever I travel…………
    The mobile version is about $180.00+ bucks.

    So would this mean your neighbors would also be able to use your signal? And if they did would it eat up your bandwidth, or does it have security.?

    You are absolutely correct. Also, chances are good that any nearby, good-signal strength WiFi will be faster than any of today’s 4G access.

    repeaters are great……..if you like CANCER…….it would be better if you could plug your phone into it and move into another room instead of projecting the signal all through your house. This way you could just use your hotspot as your main wifi
