Users in need of an external antenna to boost 3g/LTE signal strenght within fringe areas will find the Omni External Antenna to be a top buy. If you compare the other available antennas by listed specifications, the 32 in. Omni beats the others by far in all of the usable bands. I have Sprint broadband which actually uses 3 different frequency paths to accomplish their LTE scheme, and in each area the Omni is a strong contender for reception.
I will say, however, that it is advisable to mount the antenna on something that can be moved around at first before deciding on a more permanent location. View whatever signal strength meters that you can access and find "the sweet spot". In my case, I used my router software to view signal strength readings until I was satisfied with a final location. It is mounted on a tripod that used to have two quartz work lights on it, so mine is an easy and solid mount to move around. It also adjusts up and down for height!
So enjoy, and don't forget to talk to the 3g Store support people if you need extension cable, adapters, or anything else that might apply to your installation..

This is the second one I bought, have not put up yet but the other one worked fine so I would think this one should be just as good

I'm using this antenna with a 12' coax going into my camper to a Pantech UHS291L MiFi device. I haven't done any serious comparisons, but I can tell my upload and download speeds have improved compared to the MiFi device just being on the wall in my camper. For an omni directional device, I am pleased with it. Mounts are similar/comparable to most CB antennas.

I installed this on my RV along with an amplifier. Installation was easier then expected. My cell phone reception is noticeably improved. Thank you 3G Store for all of your help.

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 5GStore.com is more than robust enough for this application. The instructional pamphlet 5GStore.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 5gstore. 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.
