Need good out side antenna for MOFI4500-4GXELTE

Post by AshleyAppleton » Tue Oct 22, 2019 6:53 am

I have poor cell service in my house. Had to buy a booster. So my internet speeds are very slow. Pretty sure a out side antenna for my mofi4500 would help. What is a good antana for this and cables and hook ups. Connections and what not.

Depends a lot of carrier, tower distance and terrain.

My carrier is At&t . Not sure on tower distance. What is best way to find out on that? And i would say lots of trees for sure..

Use Google Earth a lot when installing rural 4G for low income families. Can see distance (after using cellmapper.net to locate tower) and after little hack, obstructions in path. Here is a great tutorial on using:

@swwifty made a good antenna comparison here:
