Why use an external antenna?

Next time you're out-and-about look around you - every day thousands of Australians use external antennas to enjoy fast, uninterrupted wireless broadband internet. If you're in a rural, hilly, low signal area, or you can't get a good signal indoors there's no need to tear your hair out over slow mobile broadband crashing or dropping out half way - an external antenna is often all you need.



What does a patch lead do?

Most antenna cables terminate with a standard connection, most commonly a female 'FME' connector. To plug an antenna into your phone or wireless modem, you need a short cable that acts as a conversion from the FME connector to the device-specific connector that will plug into the antenna port on your device.

The 4G100WV modem/router uses a technology called MIMO. This technology uses two antennas to theoretically double your speed in selected areas. To check whether your area is MIMO enabled use our Telstra coverage map guide.

Which connector type do I need?

We offer both the standard FME connector that you will find on 90% of antenna cables, and the less common SMA connector sometimes used. The following images will help you identify which connector your antenna cable has, and consequently what patch lead you require. If you don't yet have an antenna, you can find what connector your antenna will have at the bottom of it's description.
