Netted 4-5 db improvement over a small indoor "stick" antenna. Both antenna's were mounted indoors in a window where Verizon's data signal seemed to be highest save an outdoor mounting which I might do at a later date.

Transaction went well, and product works well with MiFi 4620 to bring VZW LTE indoors.

Even though I can't actually "see" the cell site and even though there are trees between me and the tower I am getting an 8dbm improvement. It is now a solid signal with improved performance.

Operation 3G successful. Used to have a long usb cord to position the modem at the best spot by the window and never saw more than 3 bars (out of five)and not even 3 on average. Decided to put this antenna outside the window around that spot and BOOM! Now I never see less than 4 bars. Installation on a metal pole was straight forward and with a little testing, found the best direction to face the antenna. Definitely great buy.

This antenna seems to bring in as strong a signal as the previous 3G antenna we had, which was rated at a higher gain than this one. One significant advantage of this one for our application is that it's fully enclosed. Our old one was not, and the signal would become intermittent when we had a fire going in rainy weather. The antennas are mounted above our chimney, and we think that the combination of water and smoke may have partially shorted the signal on the exposed antenna. At any rate, this one has not had the same problem. It works equally well on 3G and 4G signals; I wish we could find an amplifier that does the same!

Have a Verizon USB760 and live in the mountains of NE Tennessee (fringe area) House is lined with foil faced insulation little signal, only through windows.Picked up (on average) 10 to 12 dB (about 70dBm now) over my previous Verizon antenna. Connected to the outside with a 25" low loss cable ...the signal is now in the 50dBm range..Note you must point toward you closest cell tower..very directional. In process now in making a permanent outside mount... Excellent antenna.(and cable). Regards Fred

I bought this antenna to improve my data service by enhancing a weak Verizon cell signal. Customer service advised expertly on the antenna cable requirements. The system works well out of the box, is simple to install and took me from 2 bars to a strong 4 on my MiFi.

Fantastic antenna, PLUS FANTASTIC AFTER SALE HELP AND CONSIDERATION!!!
I sent for, and received the antenna and a twenty foot RG-58 cable.
I thought that my connection needs were in order.
-They were not!
I called, asking for assistance; I needed a non-standard ADAPTER.
They shipped the needed adapter to me with NO SHIPPING COST!!
I received the adapter just in time for a camping trip, which involved my need to use the new antenna. (Very speedy service!!!)
At camp, I set up my Wyfre (sp?) bi-directional amplifier with the standard supplied 3 dB gain antenna, mounted on the roof of the hard-side camper. NO SIGNALS AT ALL...
I set up the new Wilson Yagi: I had SIGNALS!!! Not strong, bit I was truly amazed! The camp site is in the country, and is about 200 or so feel below average terrain. I was impressed that this compact antenna could deliver as well as it did!
I used two seven-foot pieces of EMT tubing, joined by a metal coupler as a mast to hold the small and light Wilson antenna. This mast is attached (using Velcro tapes) to the top edge of the small hard-side camper, at roof level. (The antenna was a few feet above the roof of the small camper.) I was able to aim the antenna from inside the camper by opening a window to grasp and turn the mast. Simple, but it worked! I found the "front lobe" of the antenna to be quite wide, or broad; -This may well have been due to my extremely poor location.
The antenna was actually touched by a tree's leaves on the "back end." (This is NEVER GOOD!!) The antenna was well nested in trees, as it was only a third of the height of the densely wooded area. I was able to get wireless broadband even in the rain!!!!!! (I had felt that the rain would increase the absorption of the signals more, as the trees and leaves were VERY wet!)
Nope, this is a winner! I taped the type N connection's junction from the antenna's short cable and the 20 foot RG-58 cable, then I sealed it with a good grade of RTV sealant for a very secure weatherproofing. The cable is coiled and remains attached to the top seven foot mast. Both sections of the mast hang in a secure position in our tow-vehicle, a panel-van, so it travels well.
Yep, this antenna is a KEEPER!!!
