What good is a huawei router modification and external antenna installation if you don't know where your nearest mast is? Good job we have you covered.
Find your nearest mast location/direction at Cell Mapper's Website.
Cell Mappers database is created by its users. therefore the information provided on their website may not be 100% correct or up to date. For best practice its best to map your nearest masts yourself. You can do this simply by downloading their app, creating an account and take a drive out to map your nearest masts yourself. all the information your app obtains is then uploaded back to Cell Mappers website for all to view.
Why settle for less performance? We have tested many external antennas and can personally recommend Poynting antennas, take a look in our shop at our external antennas range!
SA (stand-alone) SA means the mast and router are capable of negotiating a link without needing a 4G connection first, the router must be SA capable and the mast must have its own dedicated 5G infrastructure “SA” not dependant on 4g. (This is more expensive for operators to install).
NSA (none stand-alone) NSA means the router and the mast must negotiate a 4G link before it can negotiate and use 5g once negotiated it will still require a link in 4g despite using 5g. Basically the operator attached a 5g radio to an existing 4g mast so not pure 5g like SA (cheaper to install)
5G NSA still relies upon a 4G signal to establish a link to 5G. therefore 5G signal/mast can be a different mast to your 4G mast/network. be sure to identify your 4G mast and 5G masts separately and position your antennas accordingly. Use a separate antenna for both 5G and 4G. At present there isn't any 5G SA masts installed in the UK and therefore you will be using 5G NSA
