"Will this unit boost a laptop with a Verizon usb modem? Is this unit ac powered? Is it mobile for use in a motorhome?"
The product works as indicated, but you have to have a decent signal outside your building for it to do much. I initially couldn't get a good signal outside, and the increase in cell phone service inside was limited to about two feet from the box. Then I installed the antennae that came with the product to a 20 foot pole. I suddenly was getting 2-4 bars throughout my small office and calls were not dropping any longer. This works, but I can see where it would not work for everyone....
