External Antennas for HUAWEI B525 modem

Hi Crowd,

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 ?

Regards,

Theo

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.
