Hello freewheelers! I've started this thread to get some Information on using mobile internet in my van. I'd like to find a solution to my inconsistent 3g connection. My van is a Luton sprinter converted to a motorhome, it is essentially a metal box with a fibreglass roof. Depending on where I am I get pretty poor 3g signal, I use an Android phone tethered as a wifi hotspot and connect to that with my tablet. I'd like to find a way of boosting my 3g signal on my phone. So far I haven't found anyone else looking to do the same, from what I have seen, people use 3g dongles with antennas for their internet. I've seen some home made contraptions that have mixed results. And I've seen some expensive gizmos that people use. Im wondering if attaching a high gain aerial to the roof and taping the end of the cable to the back of my phone would work? That seems quite crude, but would it work? so does anyone have any input on their experience, or have any other recommendations for a signal booster? Happy trucking!
