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.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
