I have personally tested this unique device both in Italy and in the UK in very difficult areas Decemer . In all cases, where there was a weak 3G signal but not enough for data on my Galaxy S2 or my 3G dongle, the WiBE pulled the signal in very well. The hardest test I gave it was at two locations at the base of the Calabrian mountains in Italy near Santa Domenica Talao and Orsomarso where I managed to pull my email and speak on Skype to my UK contacts. Those who spend a lot of time on the road either at work or for leisure will find the WiBE to be a real blessing. With a 6 volt supply either through an appropriate car adapter or the supplied mains adapter, it is easy to fit on the dashboard or in my case on a seat in the MH and just let it do its bit.
Travelling back to the UK in the MH, I could listen to Radio 4 (what else?) online on my Galaxy S2 set to WiFi via the WiBE all the way up the spine of Italy, a total of 1000km, using a 3 ITA data sim card. During this period, the signal was surprisingly stable. While WiBE cannot increase the throughput if not available, usually due to contention limits on the network, it does a brilliant job where the problem is low signal strength.
I recently demonstrated the WiBE to one of our clients in Kinver (WMids), where the BT broadband is quite slow. With WiBE we were testing on speedtest.net an average of 1.5 Mb/s download and upload speeds of up to 2.09Mb/s. This is in an area where a 3G data connection was at best slow or non- existent on my Galaxy S2. Coupled with a Snom VOIP phone via the LAN port at the back, we made calls using the Woden VOIP number which means that you can literally carry your office with you wherever you are. Such a simple combination in your home or small office, could replace your BT line and broadband in one swoop.
