zBoost Provides the Connected Consumer and Digital Workforce an End to Dropped Calls and Slow Data

BARCELONA, Spain, February 14, 2011 - Wi-Ex, a leading provider of consumer and commercial mobile phone signal
boosters for the home and office, is showcasing its zBoost International
product line including the zBoost-ONE UMTS 3G Signal Booster and zBoost for
Home and Office at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Hall 2-0 booth 2J29.
zBoost eliminates mobile phone notspots by increasing the mobile signal
indoors and eliminating dropped calls and slow data. Recent speed tests
showed that the zBoost line of mobile signal boosters can increase data
speeds by as much as 180 percent or almost three times as fast.*

Recent industry statistics state that global mobile phone data has nearly
tripled in the last year, growing more than ten times faster than voice. With
zBoost, users can take full advantage of voice, data and Internet services on
their iPhone, BlackBerry, DROID, smartphone, iPad and other tablets including
3G high speed data, video, instant messaging, pictures and more at home and
in the office.

"Mobile notspots are a challenge for consumers and businesses. A poor
mobile phone signal results in dropped and missed calls, as well as very,
very slow or non-existent data and Internet access-even on a 3G phone Our
recent tests, showed a data speed increase of more than 180 percent - almost
three times as fast with our mobile signal boosters," said Lloyd R. Meese,
CEO of Wi-Ex. "With the continued growth of smartphones, tablets and other
connected devices, products like zBoost are becoming a necessity for today's
digital lifestyle. The zBoost line of products improves signal strength for
better voice and data transmission while maintaining the integrity of the
carriers' networks using patented technology."

Designed for consumers and network operators, the zBoost-ONE(TM) UMTS 3G
signal booster consists of one base unit with no external aerials and extends
3G Voice and Data Zones(TM) for single or multiple users in homes or offices
using UMTS/HSPA (2100MHz). The zBoost for Home and Office, a dual band unit,
works with all mobiles on the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequencies and allows
consumers outside of the US to experience increased indoor mobile signal
coverage - up to 250 sq. meters.

Connected Consumer

With global smartphone shipments reaching more than 90 million in fourth
quarter 2010, consumers are more reliant on their mobile phones each day. The
smartphone is a staple in today's hyperconnected world with consumers
crossing over and using their mobile phones for both business and personal
use. As a mobile society, consumers rely on their smartphones to keep up with
their schedules, check personal and work emails, the weather and stay
connected on Facebook and Twitter.

Digital Workforce

The rapid adoption of smartphones including iPhone and BlackBerry,
tablets and other connected devices by the enterprise has caused a shift in
the workforce. Employees now have the flexibility to take their office with
them; however having a strong signal is key to actually working and using the
mobile phone in today's digital workforce.

According to IDC Technology Spotlight From Consumer-Centric to Business
Essential: Extending Smartphone and Mobile Broadband Device Service into the
Workplace, IDC #1073, January, 2011, "Used for years to improve sub-par
mobile phone service in homes, signal-boosting technology has come of age to
provide increased signal strength throughout a business facility."

The Spotlight adds, "As more workers 'cut the cord' and rely on mobile
service for business critical operations, dropped calls no longer become an
inconvenience, but a hindrance to business performance."
