Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

A good test to see if an antenna will help is bring your modem to the cell tower for a speed test. Use a good quality power inverter or better use 12v from a vehicle if you have access to one. This would give you a baseline of what speed is possible with a good signal. Keep an eye on your signal to ...

Your numbers look pretty good not sure if an attendance going to help.

Your modem is a Cat-7, your phone is most likely a Cat~20+. Not fair to compare the two.

Make sure to use a hard Internet cable connection for your speed test. This would remove WiFi from the equation.

Re: Question on Flat Panel Antenna with no Line of Sight

The parabolic antenna can be tricky, the size is misleading, you would think it’s a large net to catch a signal with. But in fact it’s more like a laser pointer.
