The Wilson Sleek 4G is the first cradle based 5-band signal booster that boosts all 5 cell phone signal frequencies that are used in North America. The Wilson Sleek 4G can boost the 2G and 3G networks of virtually all cell phone carriers in North America (except Nextel/iDEN), in addition to the ultra-fast 4G LTE networks from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The Sleek 4G can boost the signal for all kinds of mobile phones and data devices like hotspots and USB data cards.
The Sleek 4G is capable of boosting a cell phone signal by up to 20 times giving you increased coverage, which results in superior call clarity, fewer dropped calls, and faster data speeds. The Sleek 4G kit features a built-in antenna as part of the cradle so your phone or mobile hotspot will have to stay in the cradle in order to benefit from the boosted signal. This requires you to use either a headset, speakerphone, or other hands free device while making calls. The Sleek 4G also includes a USB charging port that allows you to charge your phone or hotspot while it’s in the cradle (USB cable for charging your phone is not included).
How the Sleek 4G Works
Cell phone signal problems occur for two primary reasons. Either your phone isn’t powerful enough to communicate with the tower because you’re too far away, or there are obstacles, which prevent your signal from reaching the tower. Cell phones typically only support about 200 milliwatts of transmission power, which limits the distance you can be from the nearest tower. But with the Sleek 4G, your cell phone signal can be amplified up to 20 times in both directions (to and from the cell phone tower) making your phone able to receive weaker signals and transmit to more distant towers. This allows you to make calls in areas with a weak signal where you would otherwise experience a dropped call or no data.
Wilson’s patented technology dynamically adjusts the Sleek 4G’s signal booster to ensure it’s using the right amount of power to communicate with the cell tower without risking overloading the system. This results in fewer dropped calls, increased call clarity and faster data speeds while still being a responsible consumer.
The Sleek 4G is capable of boosting all major cell phone carriers and amplifies the signal from the standard dual bands as well as AWS (1700/2100 MHz) all of the time. The Sleek 4G cannot boost both Verizon 4G LTE and AT&T 4G LTE at the same time, so it has a switch on the side of the cradle where you can select the network that you would like to boost. If you want to boost Verizon 4G LTE, move the switch into the up position. For AT&T LTE, the switch should be in the down position.
