So looks like I need to use a WISP at my new house as there is no ADSL and I'm a several blocks from fixed LTE coverage. It's a double story house so I might have fixed LTE coverage and I could use an antenna. But it's 150km away and I don't have sims to test with. I need to be online asap and the WISP has line of sight. So though I'd prefer fixed LTE I don't have much of a choice going for a WISP. That said ...

The WISP I'm looking at has these antennas as options, which would you pick and why?

Depends on a lot of factors.

What frequency is the WISP of choice using? Are you in a rural or urban environment?

Thinking about it, just take the antenna that the WISP recommends. They (should) recommend the best one for the job.

Thats quite the markup, is this the norm?

Lets take Dynadish.

Retail to anyone @R2695.00
Sold to resellers @R1895.00

Their price R3500.00, close to double the cost, does this include installation?

Anyway, I would go with the powerbeam 400.
