Best external antenna for B315 LTE router?

Howzit guys. Looking for some help, hoping this helps others too. 

 

I have a HUAWEI B319 LTE Router with Telkom, 30Gb's + 30Gb's. This one:

I'm currently residing in Durban and where i live doesn't exactly have good LTE coverage. On my best day i only get 2 bars of signal. On every other day it drops to 1 bar. 

The thing is, if i put my router in a certain area of my house (like outside toward the roof area...I get full 3 Bars of LTE coverage!) But thats an inconvenient spot for a number of reasons. 

 

So i came to the realization that i may need to invest in one of those poynting antenna's. However, I'm undecided on which of these to get.

 

XPOL-6-10m (Dual polarized)

 Or...

 

XPOL-2 (Cross polarized)

I'm not looking for the cheaper option or anything. I'd just really appreciate some advice on which one would perform better on the telkom LTE band.

@Specialist, any ideas? I seem to remember you being a guru on LTE

Hi.

 

Did you get an answer to this question? I also would like to put one up but would appreciate if someone could suggest one that they have installed and is working well.

Hi. Where did you buy it? I'm in Port Elizabeth so don't know if I will have to buy online.

 

Thanks!
