According to the 7730L user guide there are two external antenna ports on this device:

https://ss7.vzw.com/is/content/VerizonWireless/Devices/Mifi/userguide/verizon-jetpack-mifi-7730l-ug....

Found this from the the Ask A Question section of the specs sheet:

https://www.verizonwireless.com/internet-devices/verizon-jetpack-4g-lte-mobile-hotspot-ac791l/

"I know that I too would want to get the most for my Hotspot. I have great news, the Hotspot is indeed compatible with external Antennas. The MIMO Antenna is one such accessory: http://spr.ly/642583f0l

Another great item is the AirCard Signal Boosting Cradle (DC113A)

Both Items are helpful for boosting the signal strength as well as extending the coverage of your Hotspot.   - Nicandro"

Try the antenna linked from the VZW post above and check for specs to confirm the details on the connector.  External antennas work great as an unpowered solution for small performance gains.

If not then fall back on the cradle and use any of the compatible antenna connectors and cables for that particular cradle instead.  Cradles work great for powered solutions like amplifiers and more powerful antennas for big performance gains.

The first hit:

https://www.amazon.com/External-Antenna-Adapter-Pigtail-Hotspots/dp/B00WA6JJVS

Suggests it is a TS9 connector!

Which means I'd buy this two pack of adapters to make them SMA connectors:

But this antenna does not need the adapters:

Read the reviews, they tend to help steer you in the direction.
