The Wilson 461104 AG Pro 4G (previously called the AG Pro Quint) is one of the first true 5-band signal boosters available on the market, which means that it's able to boost the frequency ranges for the 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks for all of the major carriers in the United States*. It is also one of the most powerful signal boosters available, with a 70 dB amplifier and the best cables and antennas available from Wilson Electronics, so it can boost the signal in your home, office or building up to 10,000 sq ft or more with a strong signal outside. For a better idea of what sort of coverage you can get out of the Wilson 461104 AG Pro 4G, see the Coverage Area section below.
The following should help you better understand how the outside signal strength affects coverage and what sort of general coverage you can expect for your situation. It is important to remember that there are many factors that go into determining the actual coverage area, so actual results may vary from these general estimates.
- If you have an existing strong 5-bar outside signal, you may receive up to 10,000 sq ft or more of boosted signal inside the building.*
- If you have an existing 3 to 4-bar (-90 dB) outside signal, you may receive up to 8,000 sq ft of boosted signal inside the building.*
- If you have an existing 1 to 2-bar (-100 dB) outside signal, you may receive up to 2,000 sq ft of boosted signal inside the building*.
The Wilson 461104 AG Pro 4G supports the largest number of carriers for the 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks of any signal booster available today. Here is a more detailed breakdown of the carriers, networks and frequencies boosted by the AG Pro 4G:
- AT&T 2G, 3G, 4G HSPA+ & 4G LTE
- Verizon 2G, 3G & 4G LTE
- Sprint 2G, 3G & 4G LTE
- T-Mobile 2G, 3G, 4G HSPA+ & 4G LTE
- US Cellular 2G, 3G & 4G LTE
- All other carriers using 800 MHz, 1900 MHz, and AWS 1700/2100 MHz frequencies
The Wilson 461104 AG Pro 4G signal booster is currently available for shipment and operation within the United States and Canada. It will not work in most of Europe, Asia or Africa because the frequencies used there are different from North America.

While the Wilson AG Pro 4G comes with everything that you need for immediate installation, there are a couple of additional items you may want to consider.
For locations that receive regular thunderstorms and lightning, a lightning surge protector kit will protect against nearby lightning strikes that cause surges in static electricity that can overload and fry an amplifier. It contains a gas discharge that will automatically cut the connection between the amplifier and the outside antenna when overloaded.
When mounting the outside yagi antenna on the roof or elevated location, the recommended method is to afix the antenna to a vertical pole. While it's very possible you might have an existing tv antenna or other pole in the location, a Pole Mount Kit is a great option if you don't. It simply attaches to a flat vertical surface and provides with with a foot of vertical pole to attach the antenna and rotate into place.
Installing the Wilson 461104 AG Pro 4G signal booster system is fairly straightfoward, but will require running cable from the roof or elevated location into the house, as well as potentially drilling and screwing in components. If you feel comfortable with this level of installation, then feel free to proceed, otherwise you may want to consider hiring a general contractor, electrician, cable repair person, or handyman to assist in the installation.
Additionally, before you begin, we recommend a soft installation initially, where you don't permanently mount components, drill holes or finalize cable runs until you're sure that the system is performing to the level that you would like. Once you've tested out antenna and component locations, and are satisfied wth the results, then you can go ahead and permanently install everything. Finally, read through the entire set of installation instructions both here and in the included manual before beginning, and feel free to call us with any questions before you proceed.
- We'll start the installation from the roof and work our way into the house. First, start by determining the part of the roof that receives the best signal, as we'll want to locate the directional antenna there and ideally aim it away from the house (and not back over the roof). Once you've identified the portion of the roof which is best, locate the vertical pole which you'll be mounting the yagi directional antenna on as high up on the roof as possible. Attach the directional antenna and temporarily aim it away from the house. Run the 75 ft. cable from the antenna into the attic of the house, if possible through a vent or soffit, but you may need to drill a hole at this step.
- Once the cable is inside the house, the recommended place to locate all of the additional equipment is going to be in the attic of the house (If this is not possible, please call us to discuss other installation locations). Run the cable to the area of the attic that has power, and locate the amplifier here. If you've purchased a lighting surge protector, then attach that now, and then connect the 2ft cable to the "Outside Antenna" port of the amplifier, otherwise directly connect the outside cable to the "Outside Antenna" port. Connect the 60 ft cable to the antenna port on the other side of the amplifier, and run it to the center of the attic. Connect the panel antenna and lay it face down on the floor of the attic.
- Once all of the components are connected, power on the amplifier by plugging it in. As it's powering up, you should see the lights flashing, and then check to see that they turn solid green. If they are blinking or are any other color than green, you'll need to troubleshoot the setup by consulting the manual or contact us for help.
- Directional antennas must be aimed for best results. When aiming and when mounting the antenna, make sure that it is parallel with the ground, do not aim it up at the sky or down at the ground. Start with the antenna high on the roof pointed in one direction. Turn on the system and have a person inside stand 3 ft from the inside antenna and take a signal reading with their phone in field test mode. Rotate the yagi antenna 45 degrees and then pause for 30 to 60 seconds. After the pause, the person inside should take another signal reading, and then you can repeat the process. Each time your partner checks the signal strength, also check to make sure there aren't any warning lights on the amplifier. After you've gone all the way around, mount the antenna facing in the direction with the strongest signal. If possible, also mount the antenna on that side of the home or office so that it's pointing away from the building and not over the building.
The included manual is very helpful and we recommend reading through it before beginning the installation. If you run into any issues, feel free to contact us for help.
* The actual coverage area of a signal booster is dependent on many factors including existing outside signal strength, obstructions between you and the cell tower, the materials used in your home or office, the layout of the area you need to cover with a boosted signal, and other factors. The approximate coverage areas listed above are estimates. Actual coverage area will vary based on these and other factors. If you're not sure if a system will be powerful enough for your needs, contact us to find out.
