Having some bandwidth and connectivity issues that could use the forums help with.
Just installed a Max Transit Cat 18 that replaced my netgear LTE LB1120 modem. I have been pulling down 20Mbps with the LB1120 consistently with few connectivity interruptions for a few years now.
Max Transit Cat 18 with two Poynting XPOL-2-5G antennas mounted on the roof. The building is in a rural area with cell towers about 1.5 miles away. I can visually see the towers from the roof. The two cell towers are few hundred yards from each other one having bands [2, 4, 17, 30] and the other [2, 4, 5, 66] from cell mapper. You can’t see both towers in the image because they are on top of each other.
I have used a surface laptop that had a snapdragon modem a few months ago that pulled down 60Mbps consecutively for multiple days inside the building.
- Cannot get a consistent bandwidth - I have configured the modem to use LTE Only and I have tried going through each band and turning off and on doing a speedtest. I have gotten some okay speeds when going through the bands but any time I had a decent speed I could not keep them for more than a short period of time. Best speeds I have received with speedtest have been [75down, 147up; 50down, 40up; 55down, 35up] but that was just a few times. So I know the tower(s) is capable of doing some pretty high speeds to my location. Usually I average around (35down, 15up) until the modem is on for half a day or so and the connection goes form LTE-A to LTE and gets super super slow (5down, 1up) until i recycle the device. I am fairly technical but I am new to peplink devices. Looking for anyone’s thoughts on how to get better speeds and deal with the weird drop in bandwidth.
