I am considering having installed an antenna on the Winegard antenna to improve internet reception from the Next G network in fringe areas.

It has been suggested to me that I should mount a 7.5dBi RFI CD2197 antenna for outback touring.

I would be interested in users recent experience in selection of an antenna and Telstra mobile broadband WiFi device.

What antenna and device are you using and are they performing as hoped.

I bought a 6db gain aerial from Jaycar for $90 ...suits 3g & 4g ...not sure what else.
As I type this I have no reception on my Samsung S4 phone without the aerial & 3 bars with it. I use the phone WiFi for the laptop. Works well for me.

Contacted Sound In Motion who recommend the RFI CD2195 which they now install on new vans.

Is anyone using this antenna?

Hi John and Noelinda
We have a 9 db antenna on the vehicle as phone aerial plus a 6.5 db on the winegard on the van. We use the van aerial for both the phone and the WiFi, works well. Christine often sits in the vehicle at camp sites to send messages to the family and friends.
The 9 db works well, up 60 km out in the flat country to get messages away.
Regards Andrew
