DIY: Improve and Boost USB Modem Signal - Parabolic Satellite Dish

Compilation to DIY: Parabolic Satellite Dishes to Improve USB Modem Signal to Boost Internet Connection.

Do you have an unstable signal connection in your area? Or do you have the least signal bar on your dashboard using a USB modem device? Does it make you frustrated with your LOW Signal USB Modem Signal? I am sure it does!

Now, if you are one of those frustrated users(including me) of any USB Modem from different networks, then this Do-It-Yourself(DIY) Instructions can help your USB Modem Signal device improves and boosts signal connection.

Update:
  • Do you still use the USB modem device this year 2020?
Introduction
USB Modem has been known for years and many users prefer to use it because it is convenient, accessible, efficient, and cheap, however, despite the useful features, some problems or disadvantages made it less important.

Factors including signals(location-based), and bandwidth limits(service provider issue) can lead to the slow internet connection which leads to frustrations among the users. The usual problem encountered for a usual user is the signal. 

The low signal means Low Internet Connection. 

The USB Modem captures a low frequency by default, with this, we need to improve the capturing of the signal by using DIY steps on making a Parabolic-like Satellite. Sounds fun huh?

Here is one of the few example designs:

USB Modem Pros and Cons

Pros
  • Cheaper  - when you subscribe for the limited day only this is better than those monthly subscribers. Imagine P50/day, if you only just subscribe for 4days in a month, it is equal to P200/month. However, if you are using it every day, it is more expensive, for example, for a month, 31 days, so 50 * 31 = P 1550. Whereas in a monthly subscription, it is more than 999, the way cheaper than USB Modem.
  • Efficiency & Convenient- You can bring this USB Modem kit everywhere and you can access the internet too unlike some WIMAX or Canopy, a lot bigger than USB Modem.

Cons
  • Expensive - subscribing to it for a month is a lot expensive. You can see in Pros above.
  • Signal - If you are in properly situated location then you don't mind over these things, however for some users especially low elevated and behind with the mountain it is really a  problem. Low Signal means Low Internet.
  • Bandwidth - for a certain network there is a bandwidth limit and rate. In Globe Tattoo, it has only 512 kb/s rate(at maximum, and if you are the only one user in your location), Globe Tattoo has a limit of 800MB and it is sucks.

Parabolic Satellite DISH
You might like me wondered why satellites have a parabolic shape dish, in technical engineering subjects, a Satellite dish is used to collect signals from many sources and to focus it to the receiver. Now, to collect signal, it needs to find a surface that reflects the incoming signal to every point on the dish surface.

To get an optimal signal, it needs to have a parabolic shape, that is why satellite dishes have this kind of shape.
formula - parabola
Now we don't need to discuss it further but if you are keen enough to read more about dishes, parabolic theory. I do recommend to visit here. 
Or you can Google it for more references and sources but for now, i limit only in improving the signal. Since we know some little facts about it. We need to implement such theory physically.

DIY: Improve and Boost USB Modem Signal
Since this is Do-It-Yourself procedures, I don't want to limit your imagination and innovation. This is simply a guide for you to know how exactly looks like. We need some things here to make it successful.

Things you need but limited as to what would running in your way of thinking innovatively.
  • USB Extension Wire - This is a MUST because you need to put your modem outside or near in the window to capture signals. Where to buy it? You can buy it in all the computer stores, cdr-king, octagon, etc. Advisable to Max 8 meters. But using any wire can lead a LITTLE slower. Because the data run in cable, unlike you will just plug the USB modem(direct). Anyways...

  • Aluminum Foil/dish-like - some of the samples were from using an electric metal fan, and some of them covered up with aluminum foil. Aluminum is an element (AI) a silvery-white metal, most abundant metal on Earth's crust, and known to be low density and can resist corrosion. The more low density the better because it shields from radiation that is why aluminum is widely used even in other smartphones.

  • Optional: Electrical Tapes, Soldering Iron, & soldering lead.

Now, for the steps. You can ideally make your DIY Satellite dishes! See below examples of Improvised USB Modem Signal Boosters!
I don't own the Images i simply compile and share it and respect copyright to its owners. Mostly came from mobilarian Peeps...Thank you!

Now in my part, i used that cooking cover to boost my signal.. like you all know, it will really increase signal bars from 3 to FULL. You can try it and its FREE!
