When I bought this antenna, I lived 4 miles from the closest 4G tower and without an antenna, my dbm was around 86 and my 4G speed was very slow, about the same as a 3G speed. But when I hooked up this antenna, my speed increased by a factor of 4 but the dbm remained about the same, but I think the reason for this is because my house is L shaped and my house was blocking the path of the signal, plus I had the antenna indoors. So the antenna was definitely worth the money at the time. But as it turned out, Verizon finally turned on a tower closer to my house with 4G, about 1/2 mile away, so now I do not need the antenna. As a matter of fact, using this antenna when the tower is close by will not make any difference. So, even though I do not need this antenna anymore, I am not sorry I bought it because it helped when I needed it.
