WiMax Signal Booster

I have been looking for one of these for years. My room has a very slight signal from a WiMax protection site. I can only get the signal when my phone is on the window with speeds very close to that of EV-DO. I have purchased a signal booster to boost PCS signal in the past and had a great experience with that (a wilson booster which took my service from roaming to full native Sprint 3G). So I have been looking to do the same with this weak WiMax signal

 

Until today, the only systems I could find were $3000+ and only available on Ebay. This system is $250 for a kit and I might get it if LTE turns out to be a ways off.

Good idea. A little pricey but if you have several WiMax phones in the family and your going to keep them for a couple of years it might be a worthwhile investment. With the price and demand for WiMax phones going down I'm surprised that this unit is still that expensive. I'm sure in a month or so it may come down in price as well.

Sure makes you think of the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, they could have sold had this been brought to market 12 to 24 months ago.

It's great when your school's internet crawls at an embarrassing 6mbps, tries to monitor you like the Chinese Golden Shield, and drops the connection completely on a daily basis.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
