    Unite explore vs nighthawk?

    How much improved is the nighthawk? Does it get better signal/have better antennas?

    I heard there is also a new mifi 8000 coming out for at%t. Can be ordered if you have a business account and i bet it might have similar or better connectivity than the nighthawk. The unite explore is too old lacking few bands I will not buy it this late in the game.

    The Nighthawk does include a number of additional LTE bands that are not present on the Unite Explore. In my area (Anchorage, AK) it does make a difference for me.

    Oh ok I thought it was just band 14 and 66?

    I guess I’m wondering if the nighthawk has stronger antennas than the explore?

    TBH I pull in slightly better signal with the Explore, at my cabin it's AT&T or bust. I carry the Nighthawk daily, and if I place it in the perfect spot at the cabin it'll get 50 down, move it two feet it'll struggle to get 3. The Explore can be mostly anywhere and it gets good speeds.

    For me overall it does better in low signal situations but it's not mind-blowingly better.

    In my experience the nighthawk and UE are very close in performance, in my area anyway.
