More detail on our 4G equipment and costs
We at 4G Internet have spent considerable time testing and selecting the 4G equipment that we supply. We've worked closely with some of the biggest brands in networking and antennas to we ensure that we deliver the best possible service to our 4G broadband customers.
Read on for more information on our supplied 4G equipment sets and the pricing for each component part.
TP Link MR6400 combined 4G Modem/WiFi Router - £100 inc VAT
At the heart of our 4G equipment set is the TP Link MR6400 combined 4G modem and WiFi router. This clever and robust device fully integrates the functions of a 4G modem, capable of operating at up to 150 Mbps download speeds and a WiFi router, again capable of delivering wireless coverage at up to 300 Mbps around your property. With its inbuilt SIM card slot ready to take any 4G data-enabled SIM and offering 4 ethernet ports as well as WiFi, the TP Link MR6400 will have you up and running on a fast and stable 4G service in next to no time.
Normally we'd connect the MR6400 to an external antenna (see below). But if you're in a location reported by the networks as having "good indoor coverage", then the MR6400's own antennas will happily connect you to our 4G broadband service and that's all the equipment you'll need!

High Gain Directional MiMo External 4G Antenna - £110 inc VAT **
At 4G Internet our aim is to deliver the highest performing and most stable broadband service possible for our customers. That's why we've carefully selected high-gain and directional external 4G antennas from market-leading manufacturers Panorama and Poynting.
Unlike weaker omnidirectional solutions deployed by other providers, the external 4G antennas we've chosen offer a maximum 9dBi signal gain - that's over three times more than standard external antennas. This means that, even in areas where the 4G networks state that they only offer "outdoor coverage", once aligned correctly, our antenna solutions will latch onto an available 4G signal and considerably amplify it, before delivering it to the 4G modem/router inside your property. The antennas themselves are small and unobtrusive - measuring just 10 inches by 10 inches.
It's worth highlighting that, in order not to lose any signal strength through impedance, the maximum allowable cabling distance between the external 4G antenna and the internal 4G modem/router is 5 metres.
With several decades of the highest quality innovation, design and manufacture, both Panorama and Poynting have firmly established themselves as world-class suppliers of market-leading integrated antenna solutions, specialising in producing antennas for all types of high speed wireless data applications, such as 4G.
Full Professional 4G Equipment Installation & Service Set-Up - £120 inc VAT **
Because our sister division has been installing alternate broadband solutions in some of the most rural and remote locations all across the UK for well over 15 years, we have already got fully trained and professional installation resources in place offering coverage of the entire country - including all of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as England.
This means that, once you've placed your order with us, we should be able to get you up and running on our fast and robust 4G broadband service in just a matter of a couple of weeks or so. There really is no longer any need for you to wait to have good internet connectivity.
Other Start-Up Costs - 4G Account Set-Up & Equipment Delivery - £50 inc VAT
Once your order has been placed with us, we should be able to despatch your 4G equipment set directly to your installation address to arrive within a couple of days.
This means that everything will be at your premises and ready for our professional installers to install and set up for you, ensuring that you'll be connected to our fast and stable 4G broadband service with the minimum of delay.
The only other one-time set-up charge that you need to be aware of is our standard account opening charge, which is set at £40 inc VAT.
So as you'll see from the above, the maximum costs of getting fully installed, set up and started on our 4G broadband service will only amount to £380 inc VAT - and of course, if you're entitled to a government subsidy, all of those start-up costs will be covered! To find out about the availability of regional and central government subsidy schemes, please click here.
** Remember - if you're in a location with a strong 4G signal, you may not even need an external antenna - and because it's so easy to set up our 4G modem/Wifi router, you won't need our installation service either! So your start-up costs could be as low as £150 inc VAT!
Please note that the installation of an external 4G antenna is mandatory if equipment is supplied under any Government subsidy scheme.
