I should of mentioned that I’m using an m5 mr5100 which doesn’t support b13.

Well I can only speak on verizon 4g but in my case the strongest signal is 13, the signal my router would pick by default is 5 and the best band for actual use is 66.

My situtation is heavy trees, mountains and a the closest line of site tower is over 6 iles away.
66 is still best but the only way to get it is to bandlock to 66. Luckily with my modem EP06-A band 66 can CA to itself so I connect to band 66 (20 mhz) and when needed it will CA to band 66 (10mhz)

@mtl26637 did you see my question about the wilson antenna?

You mean like one of these:

https://www.weboost.com/products/314411

I started with one of these and then purchased a second one to run in mimo config. They are SLIGHTLY worse then the ltefix ones, at least on paper, but also can be found for about $50 each.

Yes it’s very similar but I think my we boost is a 75ohms yargi. I connected RG6 cable from the antenna to the weboost to an internal antenna. Covers 5000 sq ft. I might of used the wrong cabling and not realized it. But I have 4 green lights on the unit and it is boosting the bars to full bars.

Is there a company in the United States that can modify the m5??? Don’t want to ship out to another country.

ok yeah i think i remember this now from earlier in this thread. Since you already have a 75 ohm booster and its working I would do like I have in my home and have 2 seperate systems.

A booster for phone use (use your 75 ohm booster system)
A router for internet, in my case a wg3526 with an EP06-A
I have a total of 3 antennas on the roof, one for the booster and 2 in a mimo config for the internet router

This allows me to make clear phone calls via the booster with a backup method of calling via wifi calling and also gives me some minor redundency by allowing my phone full internet access though the booster in case the internet router goes down or has issues. Each system can partially backup the other.
