New here so i thought i would share my DIY mod for better BW
I recently purchased a ZTE MF 181 T-Stick as i live in an area that only dialup is available through the land line which was to painful to use.
Unfortunately i live in a area ware xt coverage was also classed as poor luckaly my house is quite high up so i was able to get reception on 1 to 2 bars giving me some ware from 20% to 25% signal strength and dl speeds of about 3to 400 kbps not quite as good as i would of hoped
i went and brought a 5 meter active usb extension cable did some tests around the house and found an area of better reception duct taped the modem to the window what a diffrence signal of 32 % to 46% on and dl speeds of 500 to 1000mbps
Knowing i could do better than this found an old large pan lid vary parabolic in shape added this to the equation much better signal 50% to 62% and dl speeds of 1.1mbps tp 2 mbps on a good day
major improvement hope this might help others whos reception is ant as great as it could be
