Hi Guys,

Doing some work for a client down here that has a boat mostly running around the Otago harbour and sometimes a little way out to sea, and very occasionally it will head up to work in Littleton. At the moment they have an older Vodem that I think only does 2100WCDMA.

Are there any 3G extended devices available from Vodafone that will support an external aerial we could mount somewhere on the boat? At the moment they are losing coverage all together around the harbour mouth, but I know that there is 3G extended down around the Port Chalmers area....

Is this the sort of thing you are looking for?

It only does 900 & 1800, so won't be good for the 3G Extended at 2100.

Thanks, I have sorted something out with bbman.

That device looks to be GSM only, and 3G extended is the 900MHz network.
