The speed sounds like it would be a back haul issue and you have no control over that.

For a start, don't wrap the aerial in plastic. They can live outside with no issues providing you seal up the little connector with tape (apply it tightly though).

It sounds like you have a low delta, or a high ISCP level. If you are in an area which is serviced by multiple Woosh sites you may be experiencing a bit of node hopping.

If you have more than a couple of 5m extensions you may have a bit too much cable loss or even a faulty aerial extension.
