We've received a report from a Rain 5G Premium customer who claimed that turning off the TR-069 Management Setting on his 5G router resulted in his download speeds increasing significantly.

He first noticed this after he tried to use the router for his home Wi-Fi network on his new fibre connection.

Despite being a 200Mbps package, he was limited to 150Mbps. After turning TR-069 Management off, his speed jumped to 200Mbps.

When testing this with the Rain SIM card inserted, he suddenly achieved speeds in excess of 400Mbps, much higher than his usual 150Mbps.

The customer is located in the Pretoria Moot area.

We have been unable to replicate this issue in our own tests in another location, however.

Are there any Rain 5G Premium users who can perform speed tests with the setting on and off to see if it has an impact on their speeds?

My mate decided against my better judgement to buy this rubbish. 10 days later and 4 deliveries he still has his finger where the sun don't shine. Maybe he should turn off TR-069 Management? :ROFL:
