-10db gain (4G LTE) when installed on the roof with the tower 2.7 miles away; speeds dramatically increased. This product does exactly what it says it does, is a fair price, and purchasing from 3Gstore is the icing on the cake.
Above this was the 'long story short' version, here's the more in-depth version: We live out in the middle of nowhere in a complete dead zone. If you look at a map of cell phone towers in the area they form a circle around our house so we don't get good signal with any carrier. After working with 3Gstore in the past for my dad's home internet I went to them again for my mom's place. We got an aircard from Verizon; this antenna, and the low loss cable from 3G store. 3G store's shipping was prompt, the items were well packaged, and customer supper was great as usual.
We mounted this antenna on the roof pointing in the general direction of the closest Verizon tower and called it good. Plugging the antenna in brings the signal from -104 to -94; a great improvement! Speed test results show faster pings (50-65ms from 70-120ms), increased download speeds (3-5Mb/s from 1Mb/s), MUCH faster upload speeds (7-9Mb/s from 1Mb/s), and the internet is much more consistent.

After I performed a site survey, this antenna was recommended, along with the Cellphone-Mate 4G LTE amp. Before drilling holes for the cable, I decided to try this indoors since I had access to a high loft area. I was very surprised to see my RSSI values drop from -90 to -39 (coupled with the amp and 75' run of LMR400 low loss cable) and significant SINR improvements. I really didn't expect to get such a solid signal based on the terrain between here and the tower. Note that this is a DIRECTIONAL antenna, so slight adjustments can make a big difference. I now have a very solid / reliable 4G LTE connection and the disconnects / drops I was experiencing a few times a day are history. Thanks again 3GStore!

I used this antenna with a Sierra Wireless 250U USB modem connecting to a Spring 3G tower. Without this antenna my signal was about -78dbm. I initially used the antenna indoors through a window with direct line of sight to the tower. That produced a signal of about -71dbm. Surprisingly, when I just opened the window the signal strength went up to -60dbm. My windows are "low-E" glass with a coating in case that matters. Just mentioning it in case others try something similar. I ended up mounting this outside aimed directly at a tower about 2 miles away and the signal strength ranges from -58dbm to -61dbm throughout the day.

So far, so good. No problems.

After Installed, this product did not disappoint me. Initial what to do and how to do instructions that came with the Antenna could be improved. The instructions could be more detailed on what mounting options are using a post. I found several options from lLowes and settled on a precut 5' section of schedule 40 pvc pipe. Due to my soffit having a 12 " overhang I had to build a frame to extend the vertical mounting for the 1 1/2" pvc pipe. I constructed the frame from deck lumber ripped to 4"W and braced it with angle brackets.
In the end I have a 200% improvement in signal strength and upload download speed. Bringing me up to 1.35Mb/s download and up to .5Mb upload. I also couldn't get to the PAntech Aircard RSI test thru the link provided be Wilson, but found a RSI signal strenth level in Wireless Network on my PC.
I completely endorse this product.

I ordered the Verizon repeater and an outdoor panel antenna, and the indoor dome antenna. I was in the overnight shipping area and the product arrived the next day everything was intact. We installed the repeater and antennas following the instructions, used good quality LMR-400 cable between both antennas, observed the proper spacing between both antennas, set up the repeater and it works perfect. I'm 100% satisfied with the product and the 3G store customer service.

Although the Sprint map showed strong signal in my area I actually had a weak 1 or two bars. I think this was due to the great number of trees here blocking the signal. With the antenna I was able to aim down a side street which provided 3 to 4 bars reliably. I ordered the recommended cables for my modem, everything arrived quickly and fit together well.

I live in a Verizon 4G LTE "fringe area" I had a verizon external antenna connected to my 4510L jetpack and I located the antenna in my attic. The BEST signal I could get was about
-86 dBm. I had to force an LTE connection as the modem would switch back and forth between 3G and 4G causing connection and speed issues
While the modem intdicated a 4G connection I only saw 3G speeds usually around 1.5 mbps download and .2 - .5 mbps upload. I purchased the Wilson 304453 directional antenna and SureCall CM700V amplifier here are my results:
With the amplifier connected to my original Verizon omnidirectional antenna in the attic I I saw a DRAMATIC increase in download speeds usually 5-6 mbps sometimes as high as 12 - 15 mbps, LTE signal improved to -68 dBm uplaod speeds improved but were still only between .5 and 1 mbps.
After installing the directional antenna I saw a signal improvement now down to -56dBm
I saw another slight improvement in download speeds however now my upload speeds are consistantly between 2 and 5 mbps
I rate both products (and the 3G store and its sales staff) 5 stars.
Thanks for a great online shopping experience!

Very nice unit. Tested signal level at top of my tower with the indoor antenna. Saw a -96db. After installing this antenna and adding 75' of LMR600 cable I saw -95db at the end of the cable. Very impressed! Easy install at 64' elevation. I receive a strong 4G signal all the time! Thinking of buying another one to do cell phone repeater in my house. Try it, you won't regret it!
