I've already setup LHG LTE6 with HAP AC3 in river valley so got some experience. On my land I have vacation homes and at least for now LTE is just only option but signal is really weak - you almost can't call or send SMS in most places, internet in phones is not usable at all except some hills.
One summer house had Zyxel LTE3202 and it worked well with 3-9 mbps down and 1-5 mbps up. After recognizing Microtik, I decided that will buy 2 wAP AC LTE6 for 2 homes so Zyxel would be "upgraded" - now I'm in shock that wAP most of the time doesn't see almost anything! It connects baerly only when pointed in weird way. Long response times, almost zero internet, really weak sources in Cell Monitor.
When locked with the same towers which Zyxel chooses as best one wAP works at 20-30% of strenght, most of the time doesn't even connect. This is shocking because Zyxel LTE3202 is 20% the price of wAP AC LTE6.
What I'm missing here? Does wAP have ZERO antena gain? It behaves literally like cell phone in those places. I would understand this if I wouldn't have comparison to that cheap Zyxel :O
Yes I could mount antena but would prefer to go with SXT/LHG straight away but for now wanted "all in one" device for homes inside without drilling etc.
