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

  • Take full advantage of the fast speed the Optus 4G network offers

  • 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
