Reliable Internet In Remote Locations: LTE Antenna Installation

This project showcases a smart solution for homes facing the challenge of no or slow internet speeds. The answer lies in an LTE antenna installation, a game-changer for those dealing with poor phone line connections or residing in rural areas.

For more than 20 years we been installing high quality home networks to enhance connectivity and speeds throughout the home. 

Unveiling the LTE Antenna Solution

The need for this LTE antenna installation arose when our client experienced frustratingly slow internet speeds due to a subpar phone line, offering a mere three megabytes per second (Mbps) through BT. Recognizing the limitations of traditional solutions, we embarked on a mission to significantly enhance the internet experience within the house.

Elevating Signal Strength with Precision

The first step in this process involved installing an LTE antenna strategically on the property. Positioned at the highest point, we carefully pointed it towards the Vodafone mast, located in the direction of the bridge. By doing so, we aimed to capture a solid 40 to 60 Mbps from the SIM card, providing a reliable and high-speed internet connection.

Crafting a Neat and Effective Setup

Ensuring a clean and efficient installation, we ran an external-grade Cat5e cable discreetly along the soffit and fascia, securing it to the underside for an unobtrusive appearance. The LTE antenna, mounted on a sturdy aluminum bracket, was designed for durability and optimal signal reception.

The Power of High-Grade Cables

To maximize the efficiency of the LTE antenna, we utilized a dual SIM card slot and a Power over Ethernet (PoE) feature. The latter allowed us to run a longer cable—up to 50 meters of Cat6—ensuring flexibility in antenna placement while maintaining a strong signal.

Addressing the Challenges of Rural Living

For those in rural areas with poor telephone line connections, this LTE antenna solution provides an excellent alternative. By placing the antenna at an optimal height with a clear line of sight to the mast, homeowners can overcome the challenges of slow or unreliable internet speeds.

Future-Proofing Your Internet Connection

Investing in a reliable LTE antenna is particularly crucial when struggling with poor internet speeds. Our client’s setup now powers various devices, including music systems, cinema rooms, and heating controls, seamlessly. The key lies not only in the antenna but also in quality control systems, network switches, and routers, ensuring a robust and reliable network infrastructure.
