I purchased the ZTE 275R hub and installed a new appropriate yagi antenna for it on the roof but my download speed is better but I need more, can I install a signal booster/ Repeator increase speed or is the ZTE hub not mentioned to have one?

If you're located in the US, bidirectional signal boosters are iffy under FCC rules.  See the FCC rules site for information on the topic.

Typical bidirectional signal boosters go into the antenna line and are simple enough to install.  My own experience is that the gain of installing one was not significant.

If you've got a Yagi antenna on the roof and 20 feet of cable running down to your hub, I suspect there's more loss in the line than the gain from a signal booster.
