Going to get a iBoost wifi system and just wondered if anyone here has used one and which one did you go for?

Omni directional which I understand is easier to set up (no faffing about trying to locate a signal but more expensive and less range but I do like the idea of being able to roof mount it)
Directional - Cheaper but requires 'focusing'

Plus, is it worth getting one without also getting a fon? (we are not BT customers)

I would have got the omni directional one but they weren't available when i got mine.
If your not a BT customer you will need a fon box at home, to connect to the BT hotspots and fon hotspots you have to be a member of one of them and share your network at home

Thanks Ken, does that mean you are not 100% happy with the directional one?
As I was writing the post I thought the directional one was a no brainier, cheaper, better range.

No, im happy with it, didnt realise it had a better range though, thought it would be easier to set up rather than keep having to turn it and scanning to find the hotspots.
I dont use mine a lot now anyway, get a good signal on 3 network at most places, unlimited data plan and its fast, i tend to tether to that now

Had it now for 2 years, very pleased with it and to date locked into wifi link 3km away no problem. Once you get used to it setting up takes as long as it takes you to site the ant.
