Even after reading the prior reviews, I was skeptical first about the quality of the product, and more importantly of whether it could help my problem. Let me deal with the first concern first: the antenna is made by Wilson and I was extremely impressed with the build quality, the packaging, the instructions---all first rate. Installation was through the roof of my motorcoach. The National Weather Service is reporting a heat index of 104 here today, so I was dreading climbing on the roof and installing the antennas (I bought two as I have both a Sprint and a Verizon aircard) but it was straightforward; much easier than I anticipated. Took about 30 minutes for both antennas.
As to performance, I'm just amazed. I'm currently parked at Isla Blanca RV park at South Padre Island, Texas. I had been unable to get a Sprint connection at all and my Verizon would grudgingly give me poor and unreliable EVDO service. Now, with the antennas connected, I get four bars and -40db LTE reliably on the Verizon, and two bars -80db on the Sprint. The Sprint is EVDO and a bit flaky, but I couldn't get it at all before, even having tried taking the Cradelpoint 1200 router with the aircards up onto the roof (I was desperate!) so getting even mediocre Sprint speeds is a huge improvement.
I can't say enough about these. Highly recommended.
