    I have a Huawei E5573 mobile wifi device and want to get a good antenna for it to boost the signal so i can stream tv from it . I dont know anything about antennas , so is a bigger dB antenna better ? there are some 11dB and 35dB . i am not far from the transmitter ( mast) only a few hundred meters , but there are some trees hampering the reception , if i go near the transmitter i can get 50mbs download but in house its down to 8 or 9 . i know i can stream on 8 or 9 mbs but because its wifi to my tv box , this weakens the signal again . so is a 35dB better than 11 or am i looking at it the wrong way ? thanks

    Are you asking about an antenna for 4g that is from the mobile phone masts to your Huawei device?

    yes the Huawei is 4G and the signal is just enough to get a picture onto tv via a mag box , so i just want to get a stronger signal , as im only about 300 to 400 meters from the mast but there are some trees that may be obstructing the signal . so i thought an antenna connected to my Huawei would help . What i need to know is , is it better to get a 35dB antenna rather than a 11 dB . thanks
