All in all, the Eqo was a bummer. If you bring it home and find it won’t boost signal to a specific area of your house (or, perhaps, won’t even work at all), you’ll have to arrange for a product return. Also, the set up required to achieve optimum results could be challenging for tech newbies. On the plus side, WeBoost offers attentive customer service, which is great considering there’s more to this product than simply plugging it in and gabbing away, as the manual suggests.
For what it’s worth, Wilson suggests checking out the Home4G ($397.00 on Amazon) for larger houses, but I’m going to avoid cellular boosters entirely after this experience, and just stick with Wi-Fi calling. It’s reliable, and doesn’t cost anything extra.
