The Glomex Marine Antennas' weBBoat 4G Plus coastal Internet antenna system receives Wi-Fi and 3G/4G cellular signals up to 20 miles from shore, and amplifies and redistributes them as a hotspot within the boat, helping those on the water to stay in constant touch with the world.

weBBoat 4G Plus provides simultaneous access for up to 32 devices. It has dual SIM card slots to minimize data roaming charges while maximizing cellular coverage. In LTE mode, speeds can be as high as 100 Mbps on download and 50 Mbps on upload.

Inside the 10" radome are a pair of high-gain and wide bandwidth antennas for 3G/4G reception and two Wi-Fi antennas. An integrated router has three Ethernet ports for adding on-board networked devices.

Using the weBBoat 4G Plus is simple with the free IOS or Android mobile app. The heart of the cutting-edge system, it provides advanced functionality and controls all aspects of the antenna, including SIM card status monitoring and selecting auto switching preferences.

Installation of the weBBoat 4G Plus is plug-and-play. It has a small footprint and a wide range of versatile mounting options for optimal placement of the antenna. A single power lead makes for easy hook up to 12 or 24V DC systems.

Glomex Marine Antennas' weBBoat 4G Plus has an MSRP of $995 and comes with a two-year warranty.
