SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV vs weBoost Drive 4G-X RV
A few days ago, I had the opportunity to compare the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV vs weBoost Drive 4G-X RV. We tested both RV kits at a location we found with terrible cell phone reception.
I temporarily installed both booster kits and made a series of test calls and data speed tests to see if one booster would perform better than the other. I had a friend there to help me film the results, and I was pretty surprised at the difference in performance.
Here’s a quick teaser video that gives a briefer overview of the test results:
We used the following procedures to compare the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV vs weBoost Drive 4G-X RV kits.
- I mounted both the SureCall and the weBoost antenna to the ladder on the back of the RV.
The SureCall antenna mounting kit was better suited for the smaller diameter of the ladder rails on this particular RV. Because the nuts ran all the way to the end on the U-bolts that came with the weBoost outdoor antenna, it wasn’t quite enough to secure the antenna to the ladder. On the other hand, the U-bolts that came with the SureCall outdoor antenna had more room. I was able to firmly secure the antenna to the ladder with the SureCall U-bolts.
- I ran the wires to a centrally-located area in the RV.
Because this was just a temporary test (I didn’t want to drill any holes into the side of the RV that I borrowed from a friend), I did a really quick, rough installation by running the wires along the top of the RV and then poking them through the kitchen window.
- I plugged the devices in, one at a time and made a few phone calls and then ran several bandwidth tests using the “speedtest.net” app.
For the tests in this video, I made sure that the phone was the same distance away from the inside antenna for each booster. Then, I performed the download tests 5 times and the average speeds of those 5 tests are the mentioned numbers.
- Different antennas were tried in differing configurations to see which one gave the best performance.
First, we tried both boosters with their configuration out of the box. Then, we tried differing configurations. The different tests and their results are outlined below in greater detail.
- Test 1: Out of the Box.
First, I tested the boosters as they come out of the box. In this test, the Fusion2Go 3.0 RV beat out the weBoost Drive 4G-X Rv with a download speed of 2.85 Mbps and completed all 5 tests. The Drive 4G-X RV failed 3 tests and came in with a download speed of 1.66.
SureCall – 2.85 Mbps Download and .18 Mbps Upload.
weBoost – 1.66 Mbps Download and .03 Mbps Upload.
- Test 2: Optional Antennas SureCall.
Next, I tested the optional antenna that came with the Fusion2Go 3.0 RV. It actually beat the previous results with a 3.97 Mbps Download .29 Mbps Upload. The Drive 4G-X RV does not come with any additional antennas so I had nothing to compare here.
SureCall – 3.97 Mbps Download .29 Mbps Upload.
weBoost – This booster comes with only one antenna.
- Test 3: Stationary Yagi Antenna SureCall
Finally I tested the two boosters with a higher gain Yagi antenna. Again, the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV beat the weBoost Drive 4G-X RV hands down with a whopping 18.7 Mbps download speed over the 3.43 Mbps down that weBoost provided.
SureCall – 18.7 Mbps Download .87 Upload.
weBoost – 3.43 Mbps Download .05 Upload.
The Full Video
Here’s the lengthier video comparison:
For me, performance is the most important factor to consider when comparing cell phone signal boosters. The results of this test were very clear. When comparing the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV vs weBoost Drive 4G-X RV, the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV kit is the undisputed champion. The SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV Kit clearly out-performed the weBoost Drive 4G-X RV Kit.
So, If you are looking for a reliable cell phone signal booster for an RV, I would definitely recommend the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV cell phone signal booster kit. In my tests, I found that it easily outperformed the WeBoost Drive 4G-X RV booster.
If you are looking for the vehicle cell phone signal booster that I tested in this video, you can find the Fusion2Go 3.0 RV Kit here in my store.
