Winegard Co. announced that the company has launched its ConnecT 2.0 family of products. According to a press release, the ConnecT 2.0 creates an RV hotspot and maximizes speed, reliability and range from both Wi-Fi and 4G LTE networks, ensuring customers can stay connected to their smartphones, laptops, media players and other devices.
“Winegard is always innovating new ways to enhance and improve our customers’ experience with state-of-the-art, powerful total connectivity products,” said National Sales and Marketing Manager Keith Larson of Winegard’s RV aftermarket group. “With ConnecT 2.0, Winegard customers will enjoy increased Internet speed and range, enhanced Wi-Fi calling or messaging, or be able to connect to 4G LTE networks in remote areas where Wi-Fi or cell service is weak or unavailable.”
Designed specifically for the mobile environment, the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 WiFi Extender (ConnecT WF2) is a long-range, high-performance Wi-Fi extender that increases the range of Wi-Fi hotspots beyond the range of a smartphone hotspot. The product uses its multiple, built-in smart antennas to scan and connect to Wi-Fi signals, rebroadcasting them in and around the RV.
The ConnecT 2.0 WiFi Extender + 4G LTE (ConnecT 4G2) model can also connect to nationwide 4G LTE when Wi-Fi is not available, ensuring reliable, uninterrupted, in-motion and stationary coverage due to its long-range, high-performance LTE antennas.
The model is now certified with AT&T and Verizon as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot, and RVers can add it to their new or existing plan by simply swapping out the included SIM card or choose Winegard ConnecT’s data network which features no-contract 30-day plans with no data throttling, so you only pay for the time you’re using your RV.
The ConnecT 2.0 models are simple and quick to setup with step-by-step onscreen instruction to connect to all your devices in just seconds. Security is a top priority, and customers only need to setup their secure network once for peace of mind. The products offer Advanced Wi-Fi protected access, a separate guest network access option, and double firewall protection. The Connect 2.0 family of products comes in a sleek, low-profile dome.
The ConnecT 2.0 is readily available at most RV dealer stores.
