While reading MTCowboy's thread on a Mobile phone signal booster, I began thinking of my own little dilemma, in hopes someone here may be able to help me address it. First, for those of you who may not know, we have a small farm located about 30kms (~18.6 miles) Southwest of the city of Battambang, Cambodia. Our current ADSL internet provider (in Battambang city), has a main cable run down the highway, about 5kms (~3.1 miles) from the farm. For a while now, I have possessed two TP-Link CPE-510 antennas (outdoor access points). But, we have been unable to find anyone who would allow us to move our internet connection there. What we have been seeking is, to install one of the antennas (the other at our farm), to send / receive our internet signal so we can stay connected through our ISP. (That would have been the best option, due to the speed of the connection.) However, it seems to be off the table at the moment, due to most of the people wanting too much money, to rent a lousy 1 square meter of their land, or roof space, to us. (You should see how they react to two beehives. But, that is another story in itself.) Anyway, an option I am now considering, is a WiFi router that uses the cell towers, by way of an internal SIM card, in order to transmit / receive data. I found a router locally, for about $65 USD (no refund if it doesn't work). It is HUAWEI model number: E5573s-856 Here is what the WiFi (SIM) unit looks like, that I would be using. (Anyone here ever use such an animal, in the US, Canada, or elsewhere?) Also, as SEA never disappoints me, the shop offers no external antenna for this device. I did, however, locate some online, through eBay. The antenna connections are TS-9. So, I went a-lookin' for external antennas that would be compatible with this particular unit. I found three that should be okay, if I haven't lost my ability to understand compatibility of external antennas. But, it's been many years since I was an active ham and even thought about radios, amplifiers, antennas and such. (Dumb me let my license expire. I was a coded tech, a Kilo Bravo 4 call.) Anyway, here they are: Antenna (Directional) Option 1 - This one would be about $45 USD, shipped to me. Antenna (Directional) Option 2 - This one would be about $110 USD, shipped to me. Antenna (Omnidirectional) - This one would be just under $140 USD, shipped to me. A lady at the cell phone shop (different service from my ADSL internet provider), told me that, if we were closer to the highway, we could get 4g. But, being 5kms (as the crow flies) from there, we may only have 3g as an option. That's why I was looking at directional antennas, over the omnidirectional. But, to be honest, I would be happy with anything that is reliable. (Unfortunately, I have no way to test any of this, until I buy it. So, money probably down the drain if it doesn't work for us. So, any of you good folk, especially antenna gurus / amateur operators, have any input as to which antenna may be the best option for me? I am in serious need at this point, as it is the only thing that is stopping me from going to the farm full time. (I need internet at least for the next 7-8 months, to fulfill a contract obligation. Staying here will not be an option, and I don't want to move to another house / apartment, prior to going straight to the farm.) Thanks in advance, for any help you may provide.
