Hi All.

I have done a bit of research and it seems (as with everything in life) you pay for what you get. I am currently running a Huawei B315 with two external antennas. No major complaints. According to what I have read, I might be able to drop my latency a bit if I get a proper router. The only router I have seen that supports external antennas is the B525. Should I grab on of these? Or is there something better on the market? Not sure if anyone else makes LTE routers lol.

Many thanks.

I'm running the B525 on that same Telkom deal - just remember to get the 65a I think which supports the Telkom band. Other than that I think the b618 is the better bet - again, look for the 65a or something that supports the 2300 Telkom network.

Thanks for the replies! I just noticed the B618 only supports the smaller antenna cables. The ones I have will only work on the B5252. Was hoping to get Asus :)

And discovered today that you get converter cables. So will try and get one of those!
