And at my workplace is the same way.

I cannot speak highly enough of the Sleek 4G-V Signal Booster. I live in an extremely rural area, and the only "broadband" internet available is Verizon's 3G network. However, they installed a 4G tower about 3 miles away from my house. You can search for towers near you at -- antennasearch dot com (Amazon deletes the actual link) -- if you want to find out if you live anywhere near cellular broadband service. Verizon's own service map showed my house about a mile out of reach of 4G service. I spoke with Verizon, and they made it clear they weren't planning on extending service in my area any time soon.

Verizon gave me two weeks to test 4G service at my house per their return policy, so I bought a Verizon 4620L 3G/4G hotspot but I couldn't get 4G connectivity at the house, only 3G. Then I bought a directional antenna and aimed it at the tower. I got a 4G signal, but it was very weak (no bars) and it disconnected frequently.

Enter the Sleek 4G-V Signal Booster. All I had to do was plug it in, connect my existing antenna to it, and I get 5 bars, 4G, ALL THE TIME. ALL. THE. TIME. It never drops the signal. My download speeds went from approximately 78 KB/s to about 400 KB/s during the day, and at night the hotspot has pulled 980 KB/s! That's Kilobytes per second, not bits. Almost a megabyte per second! That's unheard of for a wireless connection out in the sticks. Couple this device with a directional antenna and the broadband problem for rural America is almost solved, except that Verizon doesn't offer an unlimited plan.

The only downside I've found is that the signal boost can confuse the Verizon hotspot because the 3G and 4G networks use different DNS servers.

I own a race fabrication shop that is run out of a building that is built like a small bunker, and use my phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) to tether internet for the shop. Even though this package is specifically set up for vehicles, I took a chance and ordered it without the optional package that converts it for non-vehicle use (an additional ~$35).

I must say, I am extremely pleased with its performance out of the box. I could get a 4G signal most of the time without a booster, but it languished in the -114 to -117 dB range (1-2 bars) and some days I could not get a signal at all.

With this booster, and the antenna mounted in my office, I am now pulling in a solid -97 to -103 dB which is a MAJOR improvement in signal speed and quality. Verizon's 4G network is faster than my Comcast cable hookup used to be. I didn't expect this big of a difference, but the Sleek 4G delivers as promised, and more.

Note that the antenna has a magnetic base, but it does not appear to have to be grounded to work (I noticed no signal loss when I moved it about or just set it on a horizontal surface).

I would have rated it five stars if not for the weak mount and cradle arms. The booster itself attaches to a standard swivel ball mount, which is plenty strong, but the tongue-and-groove interface between the ball mount and booster is looser than I would like. It doesn't really snap into place solidly; not a deal breaker by any means but not as rigid as I would prefer. The only other thing I don't care for are the arms that cradle the phone; they wrap around the front of the phone a bit which makes it somewhat difficult to use the on-screen keyboard for texting, etc.

However, based on performance alone, this one is five stars all the way. I would not hesitate to buy it again!

Works just as advertised. Improved the 4g signal at my home from 2-3 bars to a constant 5 bars. Well worth the money!

I've had the standard Wilson Sleek 800/1900 for several months and it works. I just got the 700/800/1900 Sleek for the Verizon LTE network. Once again, it works, but for me, it was not even close to the up to 20 times claim.

What I've found out running some unscientific tests, is that the usefulness of this product is greatly determined by the scenario you use either of these products. Before going further, my biggest question was if the 700Mhz LTE feature really worked or if it was just a gimmick. I wanted to know if old model and the new model actually differed or if they were essentially the same thing.

They differ. I have strong 4G LTE signal at my house. I had to go into the basement and build up some "walls" to block some signal. I then looked at the dBm and asu readings on my phone for a baseline. I placed the antenna in a location with much better reception, but not at a window. I had 3 bars, bouncing down to 2 and sometimes up to 4, but mostly at 3 with phone by itself. I place the phone in the 3G cradle. No difference on the 4G network. I powered cradle off. No change. I repeated this numerous times, and can say no change in 4G signal.

Next, I placed the phone in the new 4G cradle. Yes, readings changed, phone jumped to strong 4 out of 4 bars. I powered off the cradle. Readings dropped, bars dropped to 3. I repeated this numerous times again and same thing each time.

I can confirm that the 4G LTE model does make a difference. The old 3G model does nothing to improve 4G signal strength.

Now for the variables.

From my experience with both models, the people who gain most are those where placing an external antenna will help get around some form of signal blockage.
