Unfortunately speeds on Telkom LTE is most of the time slower than ADSL and highly unreliable. You probably need to live right next to a tower to get good speed and hope Peak time it is still usable.
Anyone who recently got these deals that get more than 1MB upload and 10MB download consistently?
I have tried forcing.. one band gives better download other better upload ..
currently on auto now getting 14mbs download 1.5mb upload
Started testing the Telkom LTE in my area in Centurion and have to say I am not too impressed with speeds.
Averaging DL @ 4-7Mb/s and UL @ 8-13Mb/s with router showing 4G+ -> I am running a 618B-22d though so am forced to run on the 1800mhz band the whole time. Peak times the DL drops to around 2-3Mb/s with UL remaining steady. Anyone have any experience in changing to the 2600mhz (Telkom only?) band for better throughput?
My signal is very strong across the ranges but I am not sure whether it's due to Telkom roaming. Can I test roaming feature using the internal USSD function in the router?
If I understand this correctly, the 22d is utilising both bands automatically...those bands = 1800Mhz right? It does not utilise the Telkom only (2600Mhz?) band?...
4G+ on the B618s-22d means you are using Band1+Band3 aggregation (which combines both bands). If that is slow then your only other option is Band 40. Since band 1+band 3 aggregation is available forcing 1800MHz only means you would lose the aggregation and be on LTE 1800MHz only. SO rather use the band tool to force b1+b3
Try forcing to 2100 Mhz, I did that and its not bad at all, ave about 40 Mbps.Cancelling due to terrible speeds, even webpages struggling to load , in durban @ 75% signal. Def congestion because at 5am get 10Mbps
