I officially ordered the 20gb advanced plan, with intents on moving the SIM card into my UML290. I've been using my UML290 with my SIM from my phone, and have been getting pretty decent 4g speeds. I am using an omnidirectional antenna mounted on the side of my house, but I get the feeling if I improve my signal I may be able to get better speeds. I'm currently sitting with an RSSI of 78db. If I go into town with my phone I have 5 bars of 4g (not tested with modem yet so I have no idea what the RSSI is there), and get anywhere from 12-16mbit down, but right now I'm only seeing around 6mbit at home.
Would an amplifier improve my speeds? I'm looking at an amp like: »3gstore.com/product/3580_cellpho ··· ier.html
Can I use this amp in line with my UML290 without frying the modem?
Edit: I ordered the 20gb hotspot plan...sorry
