Is Novitec Wifi Booster a Scam? See Review

Novitec Wifi Booster should not be trusted because it claims that internet service providers monitor peak times and reduce speeds, which may be true, but it claims this product will block internet service providers from monitoring this information, therefore, they won't know when to lower speeds which is just a ridiculous. There's no technology that will prevent your internet service provider from throttling your bandwidth.

The Novitec Wifi Booster

Novitec Wifi Booster

Novitec Wifi Booster claims it's Wifi4, or 802.11 N, which maxs out at 600mbps. But, on their product description page, it says "Boost your WiFi signal’s speed up to 1200 Mbps". When you go to the order page it tells the truth, "Up to 300Mbps on 2.4G".

Novitec Wifi Booster website has lots of similarities with a bunch of problematic sites like BuyRangeXTD, HOCWatch, Cardieo, TurboTuuli, BuyBlaux, Blaux, BuyOshenWatch, GetTVBuddy, FeverPatrol, etc. These sites have lots of complaints from their users.

    It is a complete SCAM! I was dumb enough to buy 2 because they said that the more the better and then when you buy one and go to check out, a screen pops up and gives you a discount to buy one more for $34.99, then again yet another pop up to buy more even cheaper. I figured, well if they don’t work, they have (so they say) a hassle free 30 day money back guarantee so, nothing to worry about right…. wrong.. So they finally arrive about a week and half later, I tried them immediately, didn’t want to lose out on that 30 day money back guarantee in case they didn’t work. Well, you guessed it, they didn’t work. I plugged them in just like the instructions said, and checked the speed. It was only 14.88. My own internet speed is 49.54. Well, I said to myself, I’ll plug in the other one in and connect it and that should be good… nope.. Turns out you can only use one at a time, so what’s the sense in buying more than one? And they say that it extends to places that are a distance away from the router, well, that’s not true either. I went to the garage to try it and I didn’t get “any” signal at all.

    Sooo, here’s the best part. After emailing them asking for my “Hassle Free” return, they try to give me a 10% discount to keep them.. I said no thank you. So, they email me back again and tell me this time they will give me a 30% discount if I keep them and I told them why would I keep something that doesn’t work. Soo, here it comes,,,, they say okay well, you have to pay to have them retuned. WHAT? What happened to Hassle Free money back guarantee? And to top it off, not only do “I” have to pay to return something that they know doesn’t work, I have to wait 30 days for it to be inspected to see if it was used. Because if it was used, you don’t get your money back. Wait, how are you supposed to know if something works if you don’t try it. Mind you this all was in a matter of 24 hours. So, “if” they approve the return, then you “might” get your money back but not until 45 days later. So now, I’m out all that money, and hopefully someday I’ll get my money back from something that doesn’t work.

    BOTTOM LINE: DON’T BUY IT.. IT IS A TOTAL SCAM.

    It absolutely sucks! I've tried it! It cut everything in half as far as the speed! I returned it and will not purchase another of any kind. They're all lies and scams!

    It won't even connect or get past part 3 for my mobile phone. I did get it to work on my laptop but it's actually slower than my regular internet through my internet provider by half. Although it talks about different channels working together will interfere signal & the network speed will get slow. It advises me to change the main router channel in time. I don't know how to do that, what that does, nor what to change it to.

    As a cybersecurity engineer and 30 years background in IT with the US Army and now a defense contractor, I had to come and see if there was any truth to this device. I found your site as one of the reviews. If you know the basics of 802.11 and how frequency and wireless bandwidth work, you instantly start to ask questions about how can this thing work? I was interested in finding out, because I'm into this stuff, but basically all it is, is a frequency extender or booster, an amp. People often ask me, "I have 1Gb download to the house but, via fiber, but I can never get that speed." I ask them if all their devices are wireless, and try to explain to them the limitations of wireless, 802.11 and the tech behind it. You are correct, a little research on the basics of wireless communication, and the limitations of what tech is currently out there, would answer this question really fast.

    Just have patience for 802.11ax or even 802.11be in the future, then wireless will improve, but until then, we're stuck with the unregulated spectrum between 2.4G and 5G and 802.11n or 802.11ac. Good post.

    Hard to trust an opinion if I can't do a little research on the review's writer.

      You could ignore who wrote it and fact check the claims using this review as a guide

        A point well made! One that could/should be used on many other media platforms. :):)

        Point Well made! One that should be taken by individuals on many other media platforms. Thank you anonymous user from: Bexar, San Antonio, Texas, for giving sound info base that I can use to further my research on the topic. :)
