About this deal

I recently moved into a new property where I could get 5g signal via mobile but my mobile phone company would not provide me with broadband as officially there was no 5g in my area yet. The 4G anchor meanwhile will be coming from a much lower frequency (as low as 800mhz, B20 if needed) and that has a much better chance of penetrating the building and connecting to the internal antennas.

The Huawei 5G Outdoor Antenna is a signal boosting antenna which helps you maintain a fast internet and designed to be installed outdoors where there is a much stronger 5G signal compared to the located of your 5G router. What speeds do you get on 4G alone (I assume if you disconnect the antenna then you don't get 5G signal in house)? In my opinion, replacing the AF9E antenna with something else is not likely to increase the signal reception and at the antenna the signal level could actually end up being lower if the peak of the gain isn't in the 'right' place (I caveat this with not knowing the signal loss through the cable in use, so things may balance out if the Huawei cable is poor quality and the others are better with less loss). The signal level (bars of signal or metrics) are not a representation of the speed that is achievable, it is only reporting how good the connection is between your drive and the mast.

So I wouldn't be better off getting another router and using a external 4G Antenna instead of the 5G one I have.

Cons: Battery, even with 8000 mAh it did not last whole day (connected to only one laptop, 4G/4G+ connection). Your closest mast usually has the best metrics and is the one chosen to connect to, so that's not surprising.I would mount the antenna as high as I can (sometimes this doesn't yield the expected results, but usually "height is might") and frankly point it towards both masts, perhaps you're in for a surprise, though to be honest foliage is bad for RF, especially when wet. The Huawei 5G CPE Outdoor Antenna AF9E is a 5G capable antenna for extending the signal of your current 4G home broadband or boosting the signal of your new 5G Device. This 5G antenna is a great choice for users that have a 5G router located indoors where there is a poor signal but there is a much better 5G mobile signal outdoors where you can install this antenna. Directional antenna Frequency range: 3300-4200MHz Peak Gain: 14dBi Cable loss: 5dB Polarization: 45°. Annoyingly since the first two days the maximum download speed is now around 20-30Mbs and driving close to the tower may increase it to 40Mbs.
