Rutx50 antennas abit weak?

Hi i just got me an rutx50 in hope of getting better connectivity compared to my old ZTE mf286.
Initially i had problems with it connecting to the internet provider at all, but when it did it gets much lower mbits than the zte.

With the zte im at around 8-40 mbits down and 4-15 up.
with the rutx50 im only at 3 max down and 0,3up.

I do live on the countryside in sweden with about 3,5km to the neares tower with some forest in between.
But was hoping that the rutx50s 4 antennas would improve over the zte’s built in 2, but it didnt.

So to my question since its a quite expensive piece of equipment.

are the stock antennas worse than the ZTE built in ones or is it something else?
i wanted to try it out stock at first and was hoping it would be an improvement before eventually getting a pointed 4x4 antenna but this gave me some doubts…


I was not able to find any information on the antennas integrated into the ZTE device, however, it is likely that they simply have a higher gain factor, as it is intended to be positioned in the same orientation everytime, which allows manufacturers to make the antenna slightly higher gain.
For remote locations, I’d suggest exploring third-party solutions for our devices listed here: 3rd party solutions | Teltonika Networks
Or directly from our partners QuWireless and Poynting, as they offer great quality antennas designed for remote locations.

Best regards,

Hi again!
I did some more radical testing today and since it didnt rain i put it on the roof and just as that i got 40 down and 18 up!
As said we live on the country side and i wanted to try it out before i invested further in a pointed antenna!
it seems as the zte got a bit better gain antennas stock but i will look up a pointed 4x4 mimo and see what i can get out of this!

i will do a write up on my conclusions when its done!
Thx for the reply
Best regards
