I’ve got a bit of a long stretch which I’m hoping you might be able to help me with.
It’s a stretch as I have never been aboard the boat and I’m trying to figure out what’s happening from afar.
The boat has an LTE HD2 is getting about 3Mb download, and 15Mb upload (laptop connected via lan, no other devices), and is showing the below signal strengths - no real change when on the other 4g band (band 7)
My original thoughts were that there was too much noise in the area which might be causing the higher upload than download speeds - but with the SINR of 15dB, could this be the case?
I’m inclined to ground out the unit somehow, but am not sure of the best place to do this on the HD2 - there’s 3 terminals on the power connector, is one for earthing purposes?
I also thought that it could be a cell site contention issue, but phones aboard seem to be working at higher bandwidths. One difference however is the sim card is by a budget company using Orange’s network - Is it possible the orange cell tower is kicking off the other network (simyo) before the orange network customers?
I know there might not be a huge amount we can do to help with the crew aboard are under some severe pressure to sort something out, so I’m helping where I can.
