Why buy the VanConnect 4G

  • VanConnect 4G incorporates true Telstra 4GX and Optus 4G+ at 300Mb/s through LTE-ADVANCED, whereas the competition only offers 150Mb/s. This means that VanConnect gives you up to twice as fast mobile data speeds, an absolute must for online streaming and downloading.
  • VanConnect uses WiFi 5, also known as AC wireless, with a throughput of 1,200 MBit per second. This is four times faster WiFi than the competition. A must when streaming High Definition movies to multiple devices, or using Netflix or other online streaming services in your caravan.
  • VanConnect 4G incorporates MIMO technology for both 4G and WiFi. MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) is a wireless technology that uses multiple transmitters and receivers to transfer more data at the same time, effectively doubling your wireless speed.
  • VanConnect uses superior 3G and 4G omni directional antennas, providing a stronger connection to your Telstra, Optus and Vodafone mobile network provider. This allows the VanConnect to provide you with internet where the competition is unable to connect to a mobile service.
  • VanConnect uses superior WiFi 5 antennas, providing a faster, more stable and further reaching WiFi network for you to enjoy. The VanConnect 4G incorporates 4 high quality antennas to maximize WiFi performance, compared to the competitions 2 antennas
  • VanConnect 4G has a built in USB-3 port, allowing for 5,000 Mbit/s data transfer, compared to the competitions 480 Mbit/s USB-2 port. This means 10x faster USB data transfer, ideal for streaming High Definition movies to multiple devices or transferring data to your connected storage.
  • VanConnect 4G is a media streaming device. The VanConnect can stream music and High Definition movies to devices on the network, such as mobile phones and tables. Movies and music can be stored on a standard USB device. The VanConnect 4G is also able to accept SD cards, allowing you to view and transfer movies and pictures from digital cameras, or just use as additional storage space on the VanConnect.
  • VanConnect can read drives that are formatted to exFAT or NTFS, not just FAT32 like some other devices on the market. This gives the VanConnect the capability to connect to storage drives and read files larger than 4GB. Great for watching those High Definition movies, or storing your HD drone footage.
  • No other company on the market is able to provide such an easy to install and use system. The full Cowfish package encompasses mobile data, WiFi, network storage, data security and streaming services through dedicated hardware designed and built to work together.

Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • How is the VanConnect different to hot spotting from my phone, or using a router from the competition?

    The VanConnect provides a superior connection to your data providers network. The VanConnect also provides you with a far better coverage for your RV WiFi network. The VanConnect is wired in to the 12V supply of the van, so you don't have to worry about a flat phone battery.

  • Do I have to sign up to a mobile phone contract?

    No, not if you don’t want to. VanConnect comes with a Telstra pre paid starter kit. You can use this starter kit or you can purchase a kit from your choice of data provider. With a pre paid kit you only pay for the data you use. You can also choose to get a contract for your VanConnect, some providers allow you to link the VanConnect to your existing phone contract.

  • Does it work everywhere?

    VanConnect works with all major Australian data providers including Telstra, Vodafone and Optus. The superior external antenna allows you to connect to the providers network, where the competition does not. VanConnect operates on the full spectrum of 3G, 4G and 5G bands used by all major Australian data providers. Please refer to the VanConnect specifications for more detail.

  • I already have a Cel-Fi Go installed. Will the VanConnect work with a Cel-Fi Go and do I still require the external antenna for the VanConnect?

    The VanConnect will be able to connect to the Cel-Fi Go in order to give you internet. The Cel-Fi Go picks up a 3G or 4G signal with an external antenna and then sends that same signal out again through a small internal antenna for you to receive. People refer to a Cel-Fi as a booster, but it is actually a repeater, that has a better antenna compared to your mobile phone. As long as the VanConnect is placed within the range of the Cel-Fi internal antenna, you will not necessarily require our external antenna.

    However, the Cel-Fi Go units do not operate on the 2100MHz and 2600MHz frequencies used by Telstra, only on the 700, 850 and 1800MHz frequencies. The VanConnect External Antenna can connect to all Teltra, Optus and Vodafone frequencies, including the frequencies that the Cel-Fi unit cannot connect to.

    The VanConnect also use a technology called “MIMO” (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) where they use multiple antennas to increase data speeds. The VanConnect uses 2×2 MIMO, but the Cel-Fi Go is not capable of this, as it is single antenna in and single antenna out. This means that your internet speed will effectively be halved by introducing a Cel-Fi Go. The Cel-Fi Go is designed for 3G voice calls, and it will help you to maintain a voice call in remote areas. This is what it is designed for, not internet data.

  • How do I set my Wi-Fi network name and password?

    Step by step instructions are provided in the user guide.

  • Do I have to set up my antenna each time I set up the caravan?

    No, the antenna is set and forget. You install the device once and then there is no more setup required.

  • Does VanConnect work with streaming video services such as YouTube, NetFlix and Disney+?

    Yes, the dual band and MiMo features of the VanConnect allows you to stream content to multiple mobile devices at once over the caravan WiFi network.

  • What is the range of the VanConnect?

    The external antenna provides WiFi coverage up to 100 metres..

  • How much power does the VanConnect use?

    The VanConnect operates on 12V supplied by the caravan and requires 0.3A under typical use.

  • What warranty is supplied with the product?

    The VanConnect comes with a 12 month hardware warranty.
