I am dumb and the first TO admit it. Desperate for help with antenna. Should I just pay Telstra or is there any more options. I have 1 bar at the most. Conversations in the house are nill. Does YAGI ANTENNA help me with voice and data. 4G
?

Was this helpful?

Do you have wifi at home? If so you can use wifi calling on your phone if its available to make calls and then use the wifi for data purposes as well.

I'm not entirely sure if that YAGI would be compatible, <a href="https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Mobiles-Tablets/Looking-to-improve-your-indoor-coverage/ta-p/...> is a link to Telstra's Smart Antenna that provides more information

I have personal experience with the smart antenna.
Is your home signal stronger on 3G?
You can attach a Yagi to it.
For it to work please understand it's not an antenna in itself but a mini mini micro micro cell. It needs a stable signal into it.....eg rubbish in ..rubbish out.
I strongly advise you to buy it on a sell or return basis.
Radio signal propogation is not an exact science....so you really need to try it. It's available as 4GX but backwards compatible to 3G. Hope that helps
