Just starting on this LTE stuff. Have a B525 that i have tried all over the house and best so far is a shelf in the lounge giving the results below. Any comment on what is good/bad will be appreciated.
I have no idea where any towers are and considering an antenna in the roof (tiles above). Either XPOL-1 or XPOL-6
Am I on the right track?

Is there any way of getting more info on the connected tower from the B525. Like which bands are connected, is it a Telkom or Vodacom tower etc..
did you cancel because of the speed ?Lorraine ,Port Elizabeth
Ping: 29 ms
Download: 3.74 Mbps
Upload: 5.69 Mbps
cancelled ( as of now ) service after 2 days
did you cancel because of the speed ?
its very weird, im on 110GB my speeds are always between 4mbp to 11mbps, i have never seein anything above untill 23:00 where speeds go up to 30mbps, BUT! I stream everything in HD without issues, wether im on 4mbps or 11mbps im always on full hd on netflix, youtube and even DSTV now. i have only experienced issues today when DSTV now buffered when i was watching liverpool and spurs but i reloaded the page and went back to full HD.
i dont even bother with speed testing anymore because i know i never go above 11mbps during speak hours. but im happy overall im even upgrading to 220GB
Due to all ADSL cancellations and roaming, Telkom LTE is going to the dogs.
Last night I tried to stream the F1 GP on DSTV Now using Telkom's 2300 Mhz, forget it, speeds were below 2 Mbps, was shocking the way it buffered all the time.
Switched over to 1800 Mhz, a little better but still bad, then switched to 2100 Mhz and that was excellent.
Speed test during the race was 27 Mbps on 2100 mhz.
During the day I switch to 2300+1800 which as I said in my pm is a hell of a lot better than most and then I get around 30 Mbps down and 18 Mbps up as the 2100 mhz only works well during evening peak hours.That is actually decent speeds for 2100MHz. Have you tried aggregating b1 and b3. Should be 27MBps + whatever you get on band 3.
Very happy with mine. Not sure if people are using speed tests as a benchmark, it's not really true to indicating performance.
I'm in menlo park and I hit 100mbits but mostly it's 20ish. Streams 4k without a hitch, and for the one dude above, DSTV now is not a benchmark, it sucks even on 100mbits because THEIR servers can't handle the demand.
So far I am very pleased.
Although, I can't get loopback/haripinning working in the B618 router, can anyone help?
Why? I've seen first hand how my phone on LTE can't streat in DSTV now while my bedroom TV does it in 720p on 4mbits at the same time.To that "one dude's" defence, I was able to stream the F1 over VDSL in 1080p without any problems, so it probably wasn't a DSTV issue in his case.
During the day I switch to 2300+1800 which as I said in my pm is a hell of a lot better than most and then I get around 30 Mbps down and 18 Mbps up as the 2100 mhz only works well during evening peak hours.
Also the 2100 is on another tower 2 km away and I swing the antenna around.
From about 2 am to 5 am I switch to 2300 mhz and get around 45 Mbps which is ok for downloading stuff.
I don't think our tower here does aggregating.
