The Drive Reach OTR
First released in November 2020, the weBoost Drive Reach OTR is a connectivity game-changer for off-roading enthusiasts and truck drivers. This award-winning product is weBoost’s most powerful multi-user, in-vehicle cell signal booster for semi-trucks and overlanders. With its ruggedized, all-weather OTR Truck OmniDirectional Antenna, it boasts a maximum connection range and a 60 percent larger service range than other boosters on the market.
