Purchased a 5510L to use in a rural area.(north central Louisiana) Device stays in home with a tin roof, signal is terrible (-98) if I want to ATTEMPT to increase signal can anyone suggest hardware to purchase? I don't see an external antenna port on this device so I'm not sure what I can use to help boost, if anything will help.

I understand the need of improving service in your home, renatx. Since you mentioned having a tin roof, I'm sure you are aware of the challenges it presents with service. We do offer antennas for LTE service. You can view additional information here: http://vz.to/1vy1PF9

For Jetpacks that do not come with an antenna port users must purchase what is known as a "cradle".  Cradles are like a nearfield wireless technology that allows you to convert the reception from a wired external antenna to the cradle where the Jetpack normally rests.

Check out Wilson Electronics for the current options.  Wilson also offers a variety of indoor and outdoor booster solutions such as amplifiers and antennas that can connect to the cradle.
