Awesome bro. What are your before and after speeds?
Before could not even register indoor unit between 50-100. Outdoor unit best was around 400, average around 270 in current location. But it has been a bumpy ride to say the least even with outdoor unit. Your mileage may vary.

Go and have a look at the tower if you know where it is and check what is on it.

Multiplayer gaming has been very stable for me as well. 20ms on BF V servers
Stutter has basically disappeared for me on BFV. At one stage thought my Ryzen 9/2080Ti was causer. Can happily play 4k maxed out now.

Lost count but yeah my tower is back online. Electricity issue seems to have been resolved as the generators are gone and my Rain 5G is online :)

Do you have direct line of site to the tower?
Far from it. I'm in a very bad area hence the outdoor unit. Also behind a hill with lots of trees see diagram below. Will be tweaking install this weekend. Plan is to get unit on a pole about 3-4m.

So how do I go about getting an outdoor unit if my connection is bad? I ordered and I am expecting it next week.
