Review: weBoost Drive 4G-M / Wilson Electronics Mobile 4G (Mobile Cellular Booster)

weboost-drive-4gm-cellular-booster-review

This is a more powerful mobile booster than the cradle style weBoost Drive 4G-S, and supports multiple devices connected on multiple networks at once.

The 4G-M is encased in a hefty metal case, and comes with a DC power supply brick, a small magnetic roof antenna (that requires a ground plane if you don't have a metal roof), and an interior patch antenna with a long flexible cord to increase your placement options.

Note: Before Wilson Electronics re-branded as weBoost, the weBoost Drive 4G-M was known as the Wilson Mobile 4G. We've been told by weBoost that other than the change to the external case color, the new and old version are identical.

Purchasing Options

Note, the 4G-M comes standard with a 6v power supply that plugs in to a DC socket (ie. auto / cigarette lighter style). If you won't have a DC socket available and prefer to run this off of 110 AC power, you will also need to obtain a certified AC/DC power supply.

Deal Alert: The Wilson Electronics Mobile 4G is the older version of this booster but in a blue case (otherwise electronically identical), and it is still occasionally found for sale at a substantial discount.

Quick Take

The weBoost Drive 4G-M is a solidly performing and well-proven booster that supports all the key LTE bands and carriers, and can handle multiple devices at once. If upload speeds while in remote areas are not a prime focus, this is a great choice.
