If you're looking to get the absolute best data rates for your LTE or 5G hotspot, using cross-polarized MIMO external antennas is often the best option.
Our MIMO Log Periodic 11 dBi Hotspot/Router External Antenna kit for 4G LTE/5G Hotspots & Routers includes everything you need, including the adapters necessary to connect the MIMO antennas to your hotspot or LTE router.
Our Log Periodic antennas offer up to 11 dBi gain between 1710 and 2700 MHz, and 10 dBi gain between 600 MHz and 900 MHz.
These antennas are also sometimes referred to as "yagi antennas" by they are technically log periodic antennas.
MIMO Log Periodic vs MIMO Panel
We also sell a MIMO Panel Antenna Kit for Hotspots/Routers that is very similar to this kit but with slightly lower gain and directivity. We recommend using the MIMO Log Periodic Antennas if you have line-of-sight to your nearest cell towers. If you're surrounded by trees, buildings, or hills, the MIMO Panel Antenna Kit will likely perform somewhat better than the configuration on this page.

Lightning Surge Protectors
We highly recommend using our RSRF Lightning Surge Protector Kits to product your hotspot or 4G LTE/5G router from electrical surges due to lightning. Our Lightning Surge Protector Kits include a 5 ft RS200 Jumper and a short length of grounding cable.
Our RSRF N-type to SMA and N-Female to TS-9 adapters allow our MIMO antennas to be connected to almost any hotspot or LTE router. Please choose the correct adapter based on the hotspot type you are using.
LTE routers like devices by Cradlepoint, MoFi, and Pepwave typically make use of SMA connectors. Battery-powered hotspots like the Verizon MiFi Jetpack and the Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 make have TS9 connectors.
Our detailed guide for your hotspot or 4G LTE/5G router
Every hotspot and router is different, so we’ve written up detailed guides for some of the most common devices here.
We suggest reading our guide for your router, or referring to your user manual. We know, there’s a lot of information out there and this can get very technical. Don’t be afraid to reach out to us for support!
