A brand name change is not an easy task to accomplish and it takes quite serious consideration when making that switch. Wilson electronics decided to make that change in spite of loosing the brand awareness that Wilson electronics has. Wilson electronics is an household name for the past 2 decades in the cell phone amplifiers , antennas, connectors, cables and related accessory items. With how the mobile industry took off after the advent of Smartphones and its increased demand for cell phone signal boosters the former Wilson Electronics is adapting to take position as a cell phone booster manufacturer and focus just on that product. It is not surprising that the industry leader in cell phone booster manufacturer decided to forgo the household name of “Wilson Electronics” to Weboost. Cell phone booster is still a device that many customers have trouble understanding on what the product does? It is a device that captures cell phone signal with a antenna outside the building where it is actually the strongest, then transmits the same cell phone signal to the amplifier so the signal can be enhanced and then broadcast it inside the building or vehicle . Now it is simple to understand the working principle when explained! However it is not an easy concept to communicate with one word, and that is what Weboost tries to do.
Also in the recent months the FCC took the job of regulating this industry due to a lot of complain from the cell phone carriers saying that some of these signal boosters posed a threat to over tasking their towers and cause damage to the communication network. So the FCC in the best interest of the public decided to step in and announced that all the signal boosters sold in continental United States must be per-approved by the cell phone carriers and comply to strict FCC guide lines. Now, this shook the cell hone booster industry quite a bit and the whole industry went through a new phase of product specification as prescribed by the FCC. Surecall was the re-branding that former Cellphone-mate choose and Weboost by Wilson Electronics.
