Booster at 2012 International CES
New Sleek 4G-V boosts voice and data communications
on 2G & 3G Networks, as well as Verizon Wireless™ LTE
LAS VEGAS – Jan. 9, 2012 – Wilson Electronics (www.WilsonElectronics.com),
manufacturer of North America's top-selling line of cellular signal boosters, announced
at 2012 International CES the world's first 4G mobile signal booster, the Sleek® 4G-V.
In areas with Verizon Wireless™ LTE service the Sleek 4G-V will ensure a strong
LTE signal as well as conventional 3G or 2G signals. Benefits include fewer dropped
connections and no-service "dead zones," faster data transfer rates and improved battery
life for wireless devices.
The Sleek 4G-V is on display at the Wilson Electronics booth #35219 in the Las Vegas
Convention Center, South Hall, level 2, through Jan. 13.
The device, with an MSRP of $149.95, boosts all LTE, 3G and 2G cellular signals on 700
MHz, 800 MHz and 1900 MHz frequency bands. Designed for use in a vehicle, the Sleek
4G-V can also be used indoors with the purchase of an optional accessory kit – perfect
for boosting signal to 4G wireless hotspots like the Verizon JetPack.™
"Verizon Wireless customers who use LTE-enabled phones and data devices can now
enjoy the same benefits of Wilson boosters that others on 3G networks have long
enjoyed," said Laine Matthews, Wilson's director of business development. "For those
troubled by a weak signal, the Sleek 4G-V provides a strong, reliable connection so they
can connect with confidence."
In areas not served by Verizon Wireless LTE, the Sleek 4G-V will amplify any existing
signal on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands. This allows the user to enjoy a strong, reliable
cellular signal even when no 4G service is available.
The Sleek 4G-V delivers more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone, but
weighs only three ounces (85 grams) and measures just 2.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches (6.4 x
11.4 6.4 cm). Simple, do-it-yourself installation is done in a matter of minutes.
The Sleek 4G-V will be available in the second quarter of 2012 from most Wilson
resellers. It is designed for ideal use with a Bluetooth headset or other hands-free device.
Additionally, like all Wilson signal boosters, the Sleek 4G-V features very sophisticated
cell tower protection technologies developed over more than a decade of research and
