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, when an external antenna is often all you need
If you're outside the official 4G 'coverage zone', using an external antenna can help you lock on, or increase the signal strength and speed of your 4G connection
