LAS VEGAS -- Wi-Ex, the leading provider of consumer cell phone signal boosters for the home, office and on the go, announced today the launch of the dual-band zBoost-METRO at the International CTIA Wireless 2010 show. Showcased in booth 6015 and at Pepcom's Digital Experience, the zBoost-METRO is the first consumer based cell phone signal booster designed to meet the needs of the urban dwellers including condos, apartments and other single-story living areas.

The zBoost-METRO is a single room cell phone signal booster that requires no external access for the receiving antenna and no vertical separation. The zBoost-METRO is dual band (800MHz and 1900 MHz) and allows consumers to take full advantage of voice, data and Internet services on their mobile phones including 3G high-speed data and video, instant messaging, pictures and more - at home or in their personal workspace.

"The zBoost-METRO was designed to fit the current market void for urban single-story dwellers," said Lloyd R. Meese, CEO of Wi-Ex. "Traditionally, amplifiers and antennas have required vertical separation of 8 to 15 feet making it impossible for urban single-story dwellers in condos, apartments and dorm rooms to benefit from the zBoost product line and other cell phone signal boosters. The zBoost-METRO features advanced technology in the amplifier and antenna which allows for that separation to be minimized while still covering up to 1500 square feet."

In a separate release:

According to the annual zBoost "State of the Cell Signal" Survey, commissioned by Wi-Ex, the leading provider of consumer cell phone signal boosters for the home, office and car, and conducted by Harris Interactive®, 45 percent of teleworkers[1][1] have experienced problems with their cell phone service while teleworking. The survey updates released today at the International CTIA Wireless 2010 show, fielded December 8 – 10, 2009 via Harris’ online omnibus survey, also revealed that 63 percent of teleworkers consider their cell phone extremely or very important to successful teleworking and 30 percent consider their PDA or smartphone including Blackberry and iPhone extremely or very important to successful teleworking.

Showcased in booth 6015 and at Pepcom's Digital Experience, the zBoost line allows consumers to take full advantage of voice, data and Internet services on their mobile phones including 3G high-speed data and video, instant messaging, pictures and more - at home, in your personal workspace, in the office or on the go in the U.S and abroad.
