Released in April 2018, this weBoost booster kit primarily targets stationary RVers in remote locations.
The kit avoids needing to comply with the mobile gain limitations because it is not suitable for use while in motion. Instead - the directional wideband external antenna included requires aiming and set up at each stop.
Included in the kit is a telescoping pole which allows the outside antenna to get above local clutter for a better direct line of sight to the nearest cell tower.

weBoost states their products are "5G ready." Which is a bit misleading. What they mean is that even with the roll-out of 5G, their products will continue to work because 4G isn't going away. Their boosters do not work on the new 5G spectrum being deployed, and the carriers have not yet overlayed 5G on the frequency bands that current day boosters support.
Review & Testing Status
We tested the RV-65 head-to-head against the SureCall Fusion2GO 3.0, the HiBoost OTR and a collection of MIMO antennas in our 2nd Quarter 2018 testing round:

Potential Alternatives to Consider:
For other booster options on the market worth comparing this model to - here are our featured options:
Boosters are NOT the right choice for all applications.
They make the most sense for devices without antenna ports (like smartphones and tablets), or when in weak signal areas. However, for devices with antenna ports in mild to moderate signal areas - a direct-connected antenna can outperform a booster. And boosters can actually DECREASE data speeds in some conditions - never assume you need a booster on all the time - always test at each location!
