Recently switched to Optus Wireless Broadband with the HUAWEI B525 modem. I live in a remote area and only have marginal reception, like maybe 1 or 2 bars. The B525 has 2 external SMAF antenna ports, which may improve reception.
Documentation suggests to only use carier i.e. Optus recommended antennas.
( I live in a valley in a forest about 4 to 5 km from the Optus tower ).
So what is the Optus recommended antenna for my situation ?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Optus do not provide any list of antennas.
Its not a 1 size fits all approach and you would need areas that suited your requirements along with terrain, frequencies of the service and other conditions.
Numerous companies that specialise in antennas, including a few that do site surveys to find the bestr solution for you.
These of course have no affiliation to Optus.
OK, thank you.
I will see if I can get someone out here to do a site survey. There are also some antenna companies, which allow you to borrow/rent one of their antennas to check it out.
I'm using this outdoor antenna for Huawei B525, it works great for me, you may have a try: https://www.4gltemall.com/4g-lte-outdoor-antenna-2-x-sma-connectors.html
