I tested it tonight. No issues. I was pulling down 10 megs and getting 18 megs upload. This is all on band 4 in a rural area with a Wilson 4g booster.
The speed was consistent with what my iPhone 6s+ is getting. I have no idea why the tether is locked down, but it is weird the way it works. When it hits around 7.5, it just stops. No jumps above that amount, etc.
I am really at a delima here because I bought the Netgear thinking my UML295 was slow, but now it actually looks like the Pepwave USB interface was slowing it down. They are advertising the new Pepwave SOTG has USB 2.0 to 4 G speeds, but what the heck do I have? It has the same model number, so not sure.
Another issue I am having with the Netgear is getting it to let my Wii u go into moderate NAT. I have tried more configurations I can count and still haven’t been able to get it to work. It is not the Pepwave because I can’t get it to DMZ when connected directly to my computer. I uses Shieldsup and it said I was running in stealth mode…wonderful
One item of note is with the UML295 I was able to get a moderate NAT through he Pepwave.
