Does anyone know where a person can get extra Huawei Q2's and repeaters?

Did they charge you extra for the outdoor installation?

Nope. Might have been an extreme case though. They definitely did some testing before deciding to put up the outdoor unit. I'm in their coverage area so I guess they went the extra mile to get me up and running.

Great service considering I'm under no contractual obligation at this stage other than the month to month subs. Is there a difference in price between the two modems you think?

I would think there should be a price difference being the unit has been manufactured to with stand outdoor conditions. Was just thinking why don't they give the outdoor unit as an option. Because I received my unit on Tuesday and was getting about 185/15 and I am about 900m from the tower.

And last night during the rain and after wards was struggling to get above 100Mbs had to almost put it outside the window to get it above 100Mbs and the speeds were not stable at all. Will be doing some tests tonight and troubleshoot with Rain to see if we can better the speeds

They should be able to help. I get no issues in heavy storms so not sure what the issue there could be

I think they should be able to sort it out, hopefully I can get around cavedog's speeds ;)

Mine was around 50/.7 average if I can remember. Couldn't even register the unit. An extreme case as mentioned. I'll PM you the technicians number.

Here are my stats:

Just feel I should be getting way more?

Well my 5G tower is down since yesterday after a lightning hit so the tower further away I have 2 bars 5G only giving me like 120Mbps. :(

By the looks of those stats signal is not your issue.

My stats on a good day is

5G RSRP-96dBm
5G SINR 7dB


Now I'm connecting to a 5G tower ~1.3KM away because of my closest one being hit by lightning and offline since yesterday

5G RSRP-113dBm
5G SINR 3dB

Get around 100-130Mbps

Could be. No way in hell there is congestion yet there just isn't enough people on it yet especially with the R3250 once off fee.

I would suggest giving them a call and trouble shoot. Ask for a technician or of they can log a ticket for the technician to check if the tower bandwidth is an issue.

I got lucky then, I’m not even in coverage (there is coverage 2km from me) yet i rarely get under 550mbps.

here are my stats (my 5g sinr sometimes goes as high as 28db)

max speed I’ve had is 634mbps, but most of my speed tests I exit before upload starts so they don’t get saved.

Very good signal stats. If you are not covered on the map there is definitely a tower close to you with those signal stats. 5G RSRP -72dBm. That is like 500m-600m or so max from the 5G tower.

yeah I think their map missed that tower or something, I just hope we get 100mbps at least 2 years down the line. Remember how happy we were with telkom lte at the start?

Yeah but it's a bit different hey. Not a lot of 5G devices. This is 5G home so no mobile phones unless you pay the R1000 a month fee but then it doesn't work on 4G so not ideal. R3250 once off fee. Then there is the biggest difference. Spectrum. Rain has ~140MHz vs Telkom 40MHz on band 40 LTE and like 15MHz on the other.

That sounds very promising! I love this service, it’s one of the best investments I’ve made in years.
