I have really struggled with poor wifi with my phone on Plusnet. I bought the 4G kit a couple of months ago and installed it myself. It was so easy and straighforward, with clear concise instructions. I haven't been away to try it out properly yet, but I am astounded that I have better wifi in the MH outside on the driveway than I have in the house!!! Well impressed so far. I went out last week to refill the gas and actually pulled into a lay-by to give it a test and found it was much quicker. I contacted Motorhome Wifi to check if I could use the Sky sim card from my phone as I have accumulated loads of data (I have data rollover) and would like to use it ou when away. I just have alter a couple of settings and it works a treat. Very impressed with their product knowledge and technical advice.

I ordered my pack two and with some trepidation proceeded to drill a hole in the roof of the motorhome I had just spent around £90,000.00 on. The roof aerial has the best possible seal (3M), The installation was painless, everything worked as it should, we bought this package so as to be in touch at home and abroad (we run a business of holiday cottages so need to be in touch at all times). The result? Fantastic, pitch where you like open the laptop, field emails, surf the internet, just pretend you are at home, cannot believe just how good this product is, no more wandering down to reception and hoping no one is looking over your shoulder,.

I have a 4g mifi with roof mounted aerial which has proven to be a great bit of kit. Yesterday it wasn’t working and on inspection the battery was dead, after checking it appeared that the fixed power supply to the mifi has packed up and so I emailed Motorhomewifi explaining the problem and as I couldn’t recall when I purchased the kit, asking if it was still under warranty. I received a prompt reply from Adam advising that I had bought it back in 2016 (doesn’t time fly!) but that if I let him have my address, he would put a replacement in the post!!
Brilliant customer service

Had an iboost for nearly 3 years now. If you have any idea how this kit works well it beats me ,,, only joshing :)
Its been a great buy and its more than paid for itself.
We have been stuck in one place for over a year now and this has given us internet most of the time .
I did have to phone up ,thinking here we go ,when i had to extend the distance from the antenna to the router but Adam once i told him the problem he instantly told me a solution . So top marks for the kit and a big thank you for caring about customers.

We have been using the external roof mounted antenna and Mifi unit since the days of 3G. It has worked really well and when there has been a problem either from the hardware (just once when one of the aerial lead sockets came loose) or due to connection problems (due to the ISP not their unit) the response from them has been quick and helpful.

Hi all,
Purchased a Pack 3 4G/3G from Motorhome Wifi. Really excellent product. needed some advice/support for installation, specifically the MiMo Antenna. This is a fixed mount to the roof and requires a roof penetration. For this, CamperUk undertook this job - and really did a great job in finding a good location on the roof. I contacted Adam (MotorhomeWiFi) a few times, email an telephone for the support I needed - on each occasion, Adam responded promptly and fully, excellent service. Once installed, switched the router on, connected to the wifi, set passwords etc, and as if my magic, I was onto the Internet. Where we are, we get no 4G or 3G coverage for mobile phones..... But with this installed, I have 4G, making the whole cost and work worthwhile.

I purchased an omni directional aerial that worked fine the first season we had it. However, after upgrading my computer software it no longer worked at all. It transpired that the item I bought was no longer supported making it totally useless.

I'm sure their current range of products are very good but the feedback I got from them was not very positive so I'm reticent at buying from them again and will look at alternatives.

When I was putting together the specs of the kit I wanted fitted into the motorhome we were having built for us in Italy, one of the key requirements was maintaining internet connectivity and preferably at the operating lowest cost as we are travelling for about 3 years all around Europe.

I had Adam send over an IBoost and a roof top mounted 4G rooftop antennae with 12V charging connection. The antennae was fitted by our dealer with no problems and the mifi unit and charger sit on the wall inside the bathroom cabinet.

We have not had to use the 4G setup too often as we are usually able to access wifi, but when we have, it works flawlessly and certainly amplifies and delivers the available signal perfectly The roof top aerial is slimline and unobtrusive.

The IBoost system is an absolute winner and has given us good stable wifi in many many places where we would have struggled or had to use expensive local data SIM cards in the mifi. These are worth their weight in gold and certainly one of our best purchases. I bought the carry box as well and this was money well spent. Whilst not condoning such practices for a moment, for the cost of a coffee you can find out the wifi password at a nearby cafe then point your antennae back at them and voila - internet for as long as you sit there.

Adam has given me lightning fast support on the couple of occasions I didn't read the instructions properly.

I write this now sitting in a camper parking area in Istanbul where the wifi is far too weak and other campers have to sit outside the office to read emails on their phones. We are cosy and warm inside the camper while the Iboost does its job for us.

Thanks Adam for a great product and overall great service.
We have in Hawaii connected to motorhome Wi-Fi antenna on the roof and wife uses the Internet on her journeys. It's very seldom drops out signal and we are very very pleased with it. we are off to Europe in January and will see how it fares on the continent. We have nothing but superb service from motor home Wi-Fi always ready to help whenever you call them. Prompt delivery of equipment. Five-star service.

We have used ours for our 7 month trip, used on numerous sites and situations excellent bit of kit .Not cheap, but money well spent. Able to get on free (only at reception type site) internet without problem and also multiple devices 2xkindle laptop 2xphones set them once job done whenever boost is on they connect, so no setting everything up each time. BUT do not be mislead..... they do need more or less clear line of site to wifi source and although they do boost signal well they do not work magic signal too weak you wont stand much chance, and of course if very slow internet source will not increase speed. A must have for me but then I am into gadgets but this has been a boon for us on our extended trips.

I purchased the HUAWEI 873b together with a roof antenna in March of this year. Absolutely delighted with the product, its unbelievable using a 3 SIM card. Great pre and after sales service and I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

So the iBoost goes wonky at 8pm Saturday night while in Scotland ....I can fix some things and break most.
An email to Adam at Motorhomewifi generates an instant automated reply quickly followed by another giving me a chance for a quick fix.
Now up and running again....what a great service...second to none.
Thank you guys...First Class Service.

As a full-timer I rely a lot on wifi to keep in contact with family and friends and this has proved invaluable over the years. It turns a barely workable signal into a stable connection on some campsites and aires and, although I have other options available (mifi), I always use this when I have the option except for home banking.

We stay on site in Spain quite a lot in the school holidays and the kids always need paid for wifi. With this little gadget we can all have it for the price of one and with a much stronger signal than without one. I must have had mine about 5 years now and there is no question it has paid for itself.

We also make use of BT Wifi in the U.K. but have had no luck with Fon abroad but I don't think that's the gadgets fault.

The iboost has work brilliantly for me, especially when in France the only wifi was in a wind and rain swept shelter next to the reception, I was sitting in my warm Motorhome with perfect wifi signal 150yrds away...

Only had one problem setting it up one time as I forgot what to do and an email to the suppliers on a Sunday night got me a reply within an hour..! (y)

I use an iboost quite a lot; I'm using it right now. We are living in our camper in the garden while renovating an old house. Without the iBoost the signal is poor and intermittent. With it, it's rock solid and as good as being in the house. It works exactly like that on a campsite, those pitches that no one uses because of poor site wifi can now be used. No more do you have to put up with a poor pitch just because it has wifi. With the iBoost, all the pitches can have good wifi.

Once the iboost is connected to wifi, you can connect your phone, tablet or laptop to it. Just like you'd do with your wifi at home. It's great when you buy a wifi pass for just "one machine", but when that one machine is your iBoost any number of other items hook up to it, so you save money.

Though it will take you quite a while to recoup the cost, they are not cheap, (about £160 as I write) but when you can get a connection with it where others can't; you'll think it priceless.

Knocked a star off because you can't change the device SSID (the name of the network it produces) or more seriously, you can't change the password. However, I believe these issues will be rectified in later editions of the product.

Hi Jim - I have a HUAWEI Mobile Wifi, using 3 and generally it is very good but sometimes abroad the signal is "iffy" - Question is an I-Boost used in conjunction with my mifi or instead of it?
