Around and within 1/2 mile of my home I can find marginal 4G signal with my UML290 modem. It's spotty and unusable and most often not even "there". I live in a rural wooded area, and with this antenna mounted in an upstairs room of my house, I have 1 - 2 bars (in VZ Access Manager) of stable 4G service.
The antenna is well constructed for its price. The 12' lead has a good resilient sheathing although some care must be taken as with handling any communications cables especially in regards to kinks. If the intent is to fish or run the cable through a vehicle or building, I would wrap the connector end with some vinyl tape to help protect it from damage and
contamination. The ground plane laterals must be installed by user, a small tube of loctite is included to secure the threads if the antenna is to be mounted outdoors or on a vehicle.
The package arrived a little beat-up from delivery (kink in the box as if squished or dropped on end) but the contents were unharmed. The "3-way omni mount" purchased from 3GStore.com is more than robust enough for this application. The instructional pamphlet 3GStore.com included with the adapter cable was brief and helpful. I would recommend this product to anyone who's finding marginal signal in their area and thinks a few db might make all the difference.

I had a magnetic mount antenna on my RV roof on a 10" ground plane and was getting 3 bars on my router. After attaching the Omni External Antenna to my crank up TV antenna I immediately saw 4bars. Excellent product and fast service from 3G Store

I purchased this antenna from you and 4 days latter it arrived. All I had to do was screw in the 6 ground plain laterals. 1 of them was def fictive as there wasn't any threads in the hole. I called Wilson and told them what was wrong and he said were did you purchase the antenna. I told him the 3gstore. He asked me for my address and said he was shipping me a new one right away. It arrived and now I can use the internet and I'm really happy with the antenna. Also I didn't have to ship the defective back. Thank You so very much ... Jim S

Used this antenna on my home in a rural area where I was on the fringe of 4G LTE Data Service. The quality is great and the reception improved from 1 to 3G to 4G speed on my Mi-Fi Hot Spot device. I would imagine this would be similar in mobile installations.

Antenna is worthless in Colorado country. Must buy $120 amplifier also to make it work. Of course, Verizon is the real problem out here. Antenna appears to be high quality and it's made in America.

I mounted this outside my house using the 3way mount and a 1" 90 degree piece of conduit. Went from no usable signal to 3 to 4 bars on Verizon 4G. The 3 way mount could have slightly longer bolts included to make mounting easier, it was a stretch to get it to mount to the conduit. Overall, a high quality product and a great price.

Although designed for trucks, we re-purposed this as a permanent antenna mounted to the edge of the house and mated it with a Wilson Sleek 2G/3G. Performance is fantastic, and because it is omnidirectional the phone can hop towers at will without the need to re-aim the antenna. Thanks again 3GSTORE!

I use this on an RV for my cell modem to enable internet access where ever I go. It has allowed access even where the cell phone would not work or worked poorly. I have it attached to an RV TV antenna mast so I can raise it when parked. It has worked very well for this.
I have a second antenna set up at home for the same purpose. I can't get reliable access with just the modem internal antenna, but with this antenna, even though set up inside the house, I get a good signal all the time. I live in a rural area near a city.
I highly recommend this antenna for use with a cell modem.

Great product. Improved the USB modem signal about one bar for us.

This antenna saved a scientific/survey study. We paired this antenna with the Verizon MiFi 4510L, and we had data coverage throughout our survey area. In the mountains of Western MD/ Eastern WV, this antenna provided 100% coverage. Our cell phones (verizon also) had intermittent outages, but the MiFi had 4 or five bars constantly. Without the antenna, we typically only had one bar. The antenna is solidly built. We used the fixed multi-mount on both a boat handrail and an equipment rack on a van. I would recommend using a spring mount for long term deployments.
