zBoost Featured in New Clark Howard Book

Wi-Ex is proud and excited that Clark Howard featured zBoost in his new book, Living Large in Lean TimesWe may even have yelled Woo Hoo!  a time or two. 

Living Large in Lean Times is Clark’s ultimate guide to saving money,  covering everything from cell phones to student loans, coupon websites  to mortgages, investing to saving on electric bills and beyond.

In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t seen or heard Clark Howard almost everywhere, including Anderson Cooper last week, he is  a nationally syndicated consumer advocate who advises consumers on how to save more, spend less and avoid getting ripped off. His radio show is heard every day on more than 200 radio stations throughout North America. His HLN show runs every Saturday and Sunday at 6am, noon and 4pm ET, and he is a frequent guest on many other talk, variety and news programs.

So what did he say?     “A website called Wi-Ex.com offers a femtocell (cell phone signal booster) called the zBoost for $169 that works with most popular phones. But you must have an existing signal outside your home for a femtocell to amplify; if you don’t have a signal, it won’t be of any help.”

Clark got it just about right, except zBoost is a cell phone signal booster, which is different than a femtocell. zBoost does boost cell signal to prevent dropped and missed calls and also increase data speeds and extends battery life.

Thanks Clark, we really appreciate that you included zBoost in your book.







zBoost Your Data Cards!

I was flipping through the channels last Saturday evening and could not find anything to watch!!  I had gone through all the movie channels and normal cable stations.  I finally settled on the idea that I would stream a movie onto my computer from Netflix.  As I was browsing through all of the categories of movies, I was reminded that I could connect my laptop to my TV to get a bigger picture.  I was pleasantly surprised by how many different movie selections were available to stream into my laptop, and I finally settled on watching District 9.

Well I do not have the traditional internet service at my home.  I use the data card from my wireless provider.  Once I selected my movie Netflix froze while “checking link speed”.  I knew that something was wrong, and started to get a little worried.  I had never had an issue with my internet because we have a zBoost in our home.  I decided to investigate why my signal was so low.  I went into our office where I keep our YX545 SOHO.  Someone had unplugged my trusty zBoost SOHO. I plugged it back in and went to go try again.

I went back into my living room and tried to start the movie back up.  Netflix sped through the “checking link speed” and immediately started the movie!  It was amazing!  I couldn’t tell the difference watching District 9 through Netflix online or one of my DVD’s I had at home.  I now can watch ANY movie offered through Netflix and couldn’t be happier.  Once again the zBoost has changed my life!  Not only does it help with my cell and not dropping calls, but now I can get movies ON DEMAND.  I never have to worry about nothing being on TV on those Saturday nights I want to spend at home.
