How Does Wireless 4G LTE Internet Work?

Wireless 4G LTE broadband provides internet to your home or business by sending and receiving radio frequency signals from the cellular towers located up to 8 miles away from your location.

Your smartphone works in a very similar manner, it is just a different type of device. In this case, we will use a wireless router or modem to communicate with the cellular tower for internet connectivity instead of a cell phone.

Internet speed and latency are both affected by the construction of your home or office, your distance from the cellular tower, obstructions (such as tall trees), and the topography of the landscape.

A building with a tin roof and cement walls would likely block the RF signal from connecting to the wireless router or modem.

Remember, the stronger and cleaner the signal strength, the better the speeds and ping-time you will experience. The further away you are from the tower, the weaker the signal will be that is reaching the device.

Natural obstructions such as hills and mountains can also have a profound negative impact on connectivity.

For higher speeds and lower lag-time, you can always add a super Yagi antenna kit that will physically connect to your router or modem via 2 cables. Since the antenna on the other end of the cable is outside mounted up high, it allows your modem to communicate more clearly and directly with the cell tower, thereby improving all aspects of performance.

The antenna can be easily installed by a homeowner or business owner just by following the written instructions or watching a video clip.

The booster will improve your speeds and latency by at least 90%. You would also require a cable with a lower resistance to better conduct a stronger signal to and from the booster antenna. These are included in all our yagi kits.
