Patch lead suit Telstra or Bigpond Sierra Wireless 760S AirCard Hub
Connect your hub (SMA) to an external antenna (FME) - 15cm of RG316 cable
Helps boost signal strength and speed of your 4G LTE device
The Sierra Wireless 760S 4G mobile broadband hub has two antenna sockets - Use the left connector when connecting only one antenna
We recommend the use of dual antennas when on the 4G network
If you'd prefer an inline SMA to FME adaptor, you can find them here.
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.
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 Telstra 4G AirCard Hub uses MIMO technology
This technology uses two antennas to theoretically double your speed in selected areas
