Wireless 4G LTE Requires Booster Antenna for Faster Speeds

A cellular repeater system, or booster antenna, increases your mobile broadband connection's potential download and upload speeds. This powerful device amplifies cellular signals, creating a strong local network with faster speeds. If you're struggling to connect to mobile broadband, a booster antenna can help.

If you're too far from the nearest tower, a booster antenna can bridge the distance. Wireless broadband carriers build towers in places with a high density of cellphone users, which, unfortunately, means rural users draw the short stick when it comes to coverage. If the wireless internet tower is more than 3 miles away, your service will suffer without a booster.

We recommend a booster if the tower is any more than 3 miles away. If your building's construction materials block cellular signals, a booster antenna can intensify the signals and get them through. Radio waves don't pass through concrete or metal easily, which is why, cellular signal strength inside a car is worse than outside a car.

Yagi Antenna Improves Wireless Signal and Latency

A Yagi antenna is a unidirectional antenna that sends and receives radio waves in a single, dedicated direction. Today, many very high-gain booster antennas utilize this basic antenna technology, which was first mass-produced during World War II.

A Yagi antenna differs from other antennas because it transmits data in a single direction. Because of this, a Yagi can transmit data much further than an omnidirectional antenna. For a visual representation, imagine a spotlight and a floodlight. The spotlight concentrates a beam in one direction to reveal something too far away for a floodlight to illuminate.

A Yagi is ideal for locations that receive a weak signal from a single nearby tower. The Yagi reaches further than other antennas and, therefore, improves transmission in even the remotest of areas.

A Super Duo Yagi Antenna becomes a Super MIMO when combined in a single network to support a single router(s). Such a configuration can double the signal, increase speeds and reduce latency.

Omni-directional Antenna Boosters 3G and 4G LTE Wireless Signals

An omnidirectional antenna, on the other hand, is ideal for locations that already receive a medium to strong signal, but are looking to enhance that signal. Omnidirectional antennas transmit data uniformly in all directions, so they are ideal for locations that receive equivalent signals from multiple nearby towers, and not a weak signal from one tower in particular.

Wireless 3G and 4G LTE routers and hotspots that are in leafy addresses can benefit tremendously from an omni-directional booster antenna because of the booster ability to receive and transmit signal within a 360-degree setting.

Wireless 4G Packages Can Be Boosted By MIMO Antennas

A multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antenna boosts wireless 4G LTE data throughputs by transmitting multiple signals simultaneously via a series of small, imbedded antennas. Because it consists of multiple antennas, MIMO technology multiplies the potential of a conventional antenna. This translates into much faster downloads and uploads on your mobile broadband network.

In controlled studies, MIMO antennas have gains of 100% or more over single input, single output (SISO) antennas. This means that, by switching from a SISO to a MIMO antenna, you could double the area of your boosted cellular coverage. This lends greater mobility to users navigating a large home or office.

The advantage of a stationary antenna is that you can lock it in the place where it gives maximum gains. The advantage of a portable antenna is the opposite: you never lock it in place, which makes it convenient for commuting and travelling. Because MIMO boosts cellular coverage, it is very popular as a portable booster antenna. These portable MIMOs are smaller than their stationary counterparts and often feature suction cups for easy moving and mounting.
