Potential Alternatives to Consider:
For other booster options on the market worth comparing this model to - here are our featured options:
Boosters are NOT the right choice for all applications.
They make the most sense for devices without antenna ports (like smartphones and tablets), or when in weak signal areas. However, for devices with antenna ports in mild to moderate signal areas - a direct-connected antenna can outperform a booster. And boosters can actually DECREASE data speeds in some conditions - never assume you need a booster on all the time - always test at each location!
For more on this:
Consider the Netgear MIMO Antenna for devices with dual antenna ports. This little $27.49 antenna is worth having in your setup. It our extensive testing, it often beats out boosters for data performance in Jetpacks, MiFis and other hotspot devices.
