I live in a Verizon 4G LTE "fringe area" I had a verizon external antenna connected to my 4510L jetpack and I located the antenna in my attic. The BEST signal I could get was about -86 dBm. I had to force an LTE connection as the modem would switch back and forth between 3G and 4G causing connection and speed issues While the modem intdicated a 4G connection I only saw 3G speeds usually around 1.5 mbps download and .2 - .5 mbps upload. I purchased the Wilson 304453 directional antenna and SureCall CM700V amplifier here are my results: With the amplifier connected to my original Verizon omnidirectional antenna in the attic I I saw a DRAMATIC increase in download speeds usually 5-6 mbps sometimes as high as 12 - 15 mbps, LTE signal improved to -68 dBm uplaod speeds improved but were still only between .5 and 1 mbps. After installing the directional antenna I saw a signal improvement now down to -56dBm I saw another slight improvement in download speeds however now my upload speeds are consistantly between 2 and 5 mbps I rate both products (and the 3G store and its sales staff) 5 stars. Thanks for a great online shopping experience!
