Speed Tests Show New Record with SureCall Horizon 5G Network Signal Booster

SureCall | February 03, 2022

SureCall, an authorized Verizon 5G signal booster vendor, today announced the results of a field-based study of its Horizon booster (sometimes called a repeater) on Verizon's 5G mmWave Ultra Wideband® (UWB) network, consistently producing near 3 GBps of data speed. The final conclusions of the testing showed SureCall's technology's ability to provide significant benefits to speed and connectivity for all 5G mmWave carriers. You can see a video of the test results here. The team tested download and upload speeds for Verizon's 5G UWB network in an area where, without the Horizon, mmWave data speeds were not found as man-made obstructions were blocking the 5G UWB signals. After activating SureCall's Horizon network signal booster and measuring from multiple distances from the 5G mmWave base station, speed and signal strength improved significantly. At a total distance of 100 meters from the Horizon network booster – in an area where there was no Verizon 5G UWB signal without the Horizon – SureCall's booster provided nearly 3 GB of data speed. "We're so proud of the work our team has put in to build the most powerful 5G mmWave network signal booster,These recent tests showcase the viability of SureCall's network booster technology and how it will play an essential role in the building out of the 5G infrastructure. Our technology provides an essential and cost-effective boost for carriers as they build out their 5G networks, and now we can say, provides incredible improvements to signal quality, speed and strength." CEO for SureCall Hongtao Zhan SureCall used the Horizon, a patent-pending 5G mmWave network signal booster. Built as part of SureCall's 5G Everywhere™ platform to complement base stations as part of a network buildout, the Horizon allows carriers to significantly increase the coverage area of a single base station by boosting the signal in multiple directions, to overcome obstructions and fill coverage gaps. The SureCall Horizon features the highest power on the market, providing more than 10 times the power of the closest available competitor product. This equates to greater range and improved data speeds for more customers in more places. It is also customizable and available globally for all carriers rolling out their 5G networks. A technology leader in building reliable, cost-effective signal boosting technology, SureCall consistently outperforms competing products in independent testing with its patented and patent-pending technology. For 20 years, SureCall has been supplying 2G, 3G and 4G signal boosters in high volume to serve the mobile marketplace. The tests were completed in San Jose, where the base station was consistently transmitting more than 3 GBPS, at 100 meters. For the test, the Horizon was placed 100 meters from the base station (for a total of 200 meters away) and repeated the signal 100 meters away for the blazing speed of nearly 3 GBps.
