I connect to sprint, and have both B41 (2500) and B25 (1900) available.
I am about 1 mile from the sprint tower, but it is heavily treed, with a couple of hills in there.
The sprint tower is not super tall as well, it is a smaller tower.
In the winter B41 is great, 40 down and 8 up.
But in the summer when the leaves come in B41 drops to about 15 down, which is still fine but the upload is about 1.3 and takes a second to get going which makes browsing and vpn slow.
I can switch to B25 and get stable 8 down 8 up,
Here is a typical B25 signal:
Here is a typical summer B41
In the Winter the Primary band is about the same except the RSRP is ~ -106, the SINR bounces around from 10 to 25 db range
The secondary is pretty much the same as the primary.
I have an amp for B25, but that doesn’t really need to be boosted, and doesn’t help, and there are no amps for B41 (That I know of).
My Mini is outside on the corner of my property in plastic enclosure on a pole.
Is there a way to download on B41 and upload on B25 (I am assuming not).
Or is there a good way to get the upload speeds up on B41? Is one of the antenna ports receive and one transmit or?
I do have two atennas available to work with. A omnidirection wilson RV / Trucker antenna and a Directional wislon yagi antenna
