There is no built-in antenna on the Xbee LTE module, or any cell module for that matter. I’ve tried a variety of antennas, this is the one we usually use because it’s cheap and fairly rugged and fits easily inside our enclosures: https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=1837-1003

Just use caution with the u.fl connector, it is not designed for frequent connections and disconnections. You should only connect it once and leave it on.
