I also did a download test on speedtest.net and was getting 0.9meg download which is better than what I was getting before using the antenna.
When i used it the antenna provided a modest boost that was exactly what i needed. not the best out there but for the £ vs performance its ideal
They use laptops with a G3 dongle and were reporting crappy reception all the time.
I bought this hoping to improve things.
They reported no improvement whatsoever.
I then dug further into this and found the G3 coverage maps for our provider, Vodafone.
I've realized that G3 is a city, town technology, if you are outside major population areas your not going to get a signal even if you strapped a 100 metre mast to your rear.
I would recommend this product if you already have a signal of some kind, if you suffer from no signal situations like us, this just makes no difference whatsoever.
I'm in a very weak signal area, but once connected however I could see my signal strength go from 1 to 4 bars.
A marked improvement.
We bought this for use at different caravan sites around the country as we tour a lot. Our last site visit was checked beforehand on the O2 website for signal availability it replied with a "no signal available". Upon arrival, however, we set up the laptop to find a 60% signal with the internet not responding, exactly as predicted by O2. I then connected the Clip Antenna EXACTLY following the instructions and the signal strength jumped straight up to 80%. We could then access the internet, albeit with a very slow response. Our conclusion was that, as it gave us a limited internet after connection with nothing before, it works!
I may as well have sent £25 for a packet of fresh air- 25 sheets that I could have spent on something worthwile, like beer.
Better signal improvement obtained simply by using the USB extension cable to move the modem away from the laptop
recently my signals have been really weak
But thanks to MobileFun products i gained "better signal strength"
The Clip Antenna gave me an extra point at times (one point on a scale of five was always the max), 'never seen before' and even on a poor reception day loss of signal was very rare. For it's price I am delighted with the results, my only negative comment is that the clip-mount could be wider for my depth of screen if you want that convenience!
providers in more positions than the
karma sutra. You decide.
The product was out of stock when I first had a look and was promised a e-mail when it was back in stock this did not happen. Also the promised text and e-mail to advise of dispatch never came! Goods arrived within 24 hours of order which was very good.
Finding the sweet spot to place the adapter was a case om trial and error but eventually I gained some 40% stronger signal.
That might not seem like very much but it was enough to keep the signal stable!!
Note: You might also want to experiment with the direction in which the antenna points....
