    Although I agree completely on the functionality it helps a hell of a lot when reselling it to someone if it doesn’t look dog ugly.

    So I secured a unit to test. If you're familiar with RouterOS then setup is a piece of cake. Unit looks nice and is easy to open up and disassemble.

    I did some rudimentary side-by-side tests with a Huawei B315 (paddles attached) and the RSRP was -73dBm on the Huawei and -84dBm on the Mikrotik. So the internal antennas are not that great. The download speeds were pretty similar, but the upload suffered (I assume due to the poorer signal). Only other fault was that you can't get the SIM card out easily. It doesn't have a spring eject, so you need to pull it out and the only way to do that was to take off the top cover and push the SIM out.

    Some pics!

    Ok, I can see the antenna are not soldered in like other units. So in theory you can add external antennae.

    Is there any space on the external casing that would allow you to drill through

    There are antenna headers on the board. In the front view you can see the black cable cross over it and the other one is to the right of it.

    You can use 2 of these: http://www.antennas.co.za/Products/P...etails?code=39

    Now I'm tempted to get one, like like decent kit. Is the enclosure weather proof?

    Yes, apparently.

    Scoop seem to stock them.

    It looks like there are two cutouts the size of an SMA connector next to the power connector which could be used for external antennae.

    This would be so nice for a failover LTE connection.
