Thanks to both of you for the MIMO explanations (and recommendations) w.r.t. LTE connectivity.
In our case the booster + Yagi antenna do improve the overall speed (the location is quite marginal w.r.t. the tower), but my take-away from the explanations is that we get the benefit of only one channel, that the diversity component is simply not there for our system, due to the single antenna. Is that correct?
Assuming that I have only one coax cable run - anything else I should consider to improve connectivity?
Assuming that I can add a second coax run, but only to a pole about 50 feet or more distant from the first antenna, can one mount a second (diversity) antenna there? Or asked differently, how far apart may the two polarization (±45 degrees) antennas be and still be jointly functional?
FWIW: We are on Verizon and AT&T in the US, connecting on bands 13 and 17 (700 MHz)
I appreciate your patience with me - RF level network technology has so far been beyond the scope of my core competency.
