The Zyxel NR5103 5G Router with SIM Slot is the router used by EE in 2022 as their standard offering to customers that want a 5GEE Router.

This is a brilliant router, mainly because it has the 4 x external antenna ports on the rear that allow for the connection of an external 5G Antenna.

With regard to the router performance and functionality it is pretty similar to many other 5G routers designed for the home and small office market place.  It has an embedded, high speed 5G Modem capable of connecting to 5G networks.  This modem is also a CAT20 LTE 4G Modem so will provide super fast 4G Internet connectivity if you don’t yet get 5G in your area.

Unlike many other 5G Routers, the 4 x TS9 antenna ports on the back and the antenna selection switch make the Zyxel NR5103 one of the most sought after 5G Routers because many users want to install an outdoor, high gain, 4×4 MIMO 5G Antenna to get the optimum 5G performance and speed.

Of course, just adding an external 5G antenna to the Zyxel NR5103 router will not automatically boost the 5G signal and improve the Download and upload speeds.  You will need to check that you actually get better performance by taking your router outdoors and checking the difference compared to indoor use.
