Internal Antenna = 43MbpsFor the uninitiated, could you translate that into Mbps please ?
There is an app for your Android phone called OpenSignal.Internal Antenna = 43Mbps
External Antenna = 75Mbps
See the speedtest links
Now I'd like to know if there is any way to find out where your nearest tower and what frequency it is transmitting on.
There are a bunch of 4G antennas on Banggood 4G Ant for R100 - R200. Claims 28dB gain ??
I see Mweb now have the same deal but no R209.I signed up on Tues 9 July. Submitted RICA docs and made R209 eft for modem and submitted the proof of deposit to "speed up the process". Phoned helpdesk and manually got RICAed on Thu 11 July after I had to sign up again and re-submit my RICA docs.
On Fri 19 July Webafrica acknowledges the R209 deposit on 10 July. Seems like the Accts Dept are the slow pokes.
10 days later still no LTE service. "Be online in 5 days" is another broken promise.
Just got another email to say RICA approved and courier will deliver the modem and SIM in the next 3-5 business days.
Still no reply from webAfrica, does anyone know if this LTE will work in an area that has telkom LTE (As tested with a prepaid SIM, but not in coverage per WA website?
So you are currently using webafrica in an area marked as having no coverage??I am in a similar position and I'm sure the Webafrica supplied Telkom B525 modem/SIM will connect to the same towers as your test.
This is after all just Telkom LTE resold, should be no difference. BUT already Webafrica does not offer a news server and with their Telkom LTE you cannot connect to news.telkom.co.za either.
The only reason I went with Webafrica was because Telkom refused to sell me LTE, even though I was using a friends Telkom LTE modem and speed was 30Mb/s, because my house was not 'in their coverage area'.
Looking at webafrica site it says you can return the router after you cancel? So that should be fine then?Another downer is that Webafrica charges same as Telkom but if you want to go your own way after 1 or 2 years they will still charge you full price for the used modem. No incentive to look after this equipment.
Not yet. I'm still waiting for the Webafrica modem to be delivered. I was using the same LTE package from Telkom even though I was outside the coverage (same map as Webafrica) So I'm sure there won't be any problems.So you are currently using webafrica in an area marked as having no coverage??
Actually I got the antenna as a Xmas present from my son
