External 3G/LTE antenna + router
First; sorry if this is the wrong forum. I thought it was the one that was closest to the topic.
I have long been looking for a forum that might have some clever people that can help me with this situation that im in. So here it goes.
We have a house thats located - pretty much - in the middle of nowhere. There is however a 3G(soon to be LTE) antenna located around 1 mile from the house. The problem now, is that the trees are blocking the 3G signal / view of the antenna.
I have been considering a dsl line, but considering they can deliver something like 2Mbit downstream and maybe 256Kbit upstream im looking for something else.
I have been looking at the Huawei B593 router with buildin 3g/lte modem and an external antenna - there is a mount for an Free-To-Air DVB-T signal mounted on the house, so I was thinking of mounting it there. Its not free of the treeline but I guess that the signal doesnt need line-of-sight right?
Now here comes the real problem..
What kind of antenna should i pick? - Im guessing directional as its directly towards one antenna. How far can i run the cable from the external antenna down to the router without needing to amplify it?
Hope someone has some input.
