Wilson Electronics' DT4G Cell Signal Booster—justlaunched, this is the FIRST consumer cell signal booster to boost ALL voice anddata signals, including 4G, for ALL US carriers. Today, more than 80% of cellphone calls are made from inside a building. Many types of building materialsmake it difficult for a good cell signal to get inside, including low-e glass,metal roofing, brick, window coating, and more. The DT4G helps overcome thesebuilding materials by using a powerful antenna to pull in the good signal,boosting it, and then redistributing a usable signal indoors through a small,desktop antenna. The process is then repeated, but in reverse, sending a strongsignal back to the cell tower. The result, a stronger, more reliable cellsignal in the area of your home or office where you need it most.  The DT4G Cell Signal Booster is under $400 and for more information go to: www.wilsonelectronics.com/greenberg 

The product is available on Amazon.com as well: http://www.amazon.com/Wilson-Electronics-Signal-Booster-Office/dp/B00HWX16GU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394471233&sr=8-1&keywords=dt4g
