Kia ora, the two antenna connections on the rear of the B315, are they for mobile network reception and transmission or are they for wifi reception and transmission? Cheers

Hi Steve,

Help pick up better reception from mobile network e.g if you're rural and quite a ways distance from a cell tower.

Its why there's different coverage estimates on our coverage map -

Generally when we do the install the tech will check signal levels and make a call whether to also put up a yagi (antennae) outside of the house facing a cell site and have a coax cable lead down to the device.

Some other providers whether here or internationally might just provide smaller direct plug in antennae kinda like the old 'bunny ears' like we had on TVs back in the day.
