I recently purchased/received a Pepwave Max Br1 for use in our new rural home where currently the only ISP option is a “local” throttled satellite internet (gag)
We have an unlimited plan through T-Mobile for 4gLTE service that came with a ZTE Falcon hotspot+SIM. My speeds would range from 6mb down/2mb up to MAYBE 7.5mb down, and around 75ms ping). I purchased the Pepwave after reading several reviews hoping that since it had actual external antennas and more importantly wired LAN ports that I would receive a better signal and possibly produce better DL speeds(?)
After inserting my SIM and setting up to the best of my ability and the PDF’s available my speed test is putting me at about 600ms ping, .98mb down and .56mb up. Obviously not good. The other problem I’ve run into is my IP is changing constantly all over the country, one moment I’m in Indiana next I’m in Oregon.
I assume this is 100% due to my lack of knowledge on setting this up correctly and I would love love love some help using my pepwave.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S I get 3-4 bars of 4g LTE signal (TMobile) out here in the boonies of AL
