I’ve been adding to my setup over the past 6 months. Each addition has improved my overall signal strength, and internet connection to some degree. I’m at the point that my signal is acceptable to me and I’m pretty happy with it. I did just find out that the SMA aux for the BR1 is used for MIMO and it gets closer to the LTE spec. I’m not sure what scheme or anything like that. It would be cool to here more about how that technically works, and if anyone has information, I’d love to read more about it.
Here’s my real question though: given that I’m content with the signal, would adding another outdoor antenna do 1 of 2 things: [B]increase my bandwidth[/B] or [B]decrease my latency?[/B] I know that a lot of this is up to the receiving antenna (my provider), but I’d like to see if my chances of achieving those 2 goals are possible.

What are my chances that adding another Wilson Panel to the SMA aux will increase my bandwidth or decrease my latency? Also would I need to have the same setup (antenna and amp) or just an antenna to see improvements?
