dude... you do you.
If an older member weighs in take notice and learn
Age =/= correct though
you've been here as long as myself Gunna
what do you think my intentions are here?
Honesty? I can't tell as your comments don't really related to the topic at hand which is using 4G as a viable replacement or alternative to the NBN albeit a steep technical learning curve and initial investment.
you can click on my name and see my previous comment history Gunna.
Again, you've been here here as long as I have. This isn't a new thing.
it's been almost 20yrs... give or take a couple of days. If anything, I'd think you were paying more attention than I was over time
Koopz's post history certainly is something else.
Impressive results and definitely a viable alternative for someone with crappy copper, i was almost tempted to try something similar myself until i moved into my new place and got FTTP
After reading through this thread from start to finish, I thought this would be the ideal option for us.
Being stuck on ADSL at 5Mbps as we are so far from the exchange and not using the home phone meant it was time for a change.
Signed up to the Optus 200gb with the Huawei B525.
Added one of these Blackhawk antennas on the roof https://blackhawkantennas.com.au/mimo-xpol-panel-antenna/
Average speeds are as below pic, but ranges between 60Mbps, to about 140Mbps on band 7.
We are in Kilsyth with LOS to the towers on Mt Dandenong, around 6kms away.
So thanks for a great thread, hopefully it gives others the inspiration to make the move to better speeds!
Fantastic! Just stay off my tower Jealous of your upload!
I'm going to be doing some testing soon with a second M1 connected to MIMO yagis pointed to another tower, load balanced on my Ubiquiti USG. Still researching and planning but have all the kit to do it, just need to get up on the roof and get it all connected!
My pitiful Optus 4G.
You lucky lucky bastard! Monty94
HAHAH The saddest part of that pic is the rating LOL
The problem with that stat is that people mostly go to speedtest.net when they have problems.
So its not a representative sample.
We seem to have a lot of Band 40 towers around us but locking the modem gets us same download but <5Mbps uploads.
Band 7 must be light on users around us!. Ive tried to find which tower we are locked on with Band 7 but seems tricky. More reading needed there!
Im happy with those speeds anyway I don't think adjusting the antenna is going to yield much improvement.
Can you confirm full model number of modem, and confirm you can infact force the bands you want it to use? Can you force multiple for CA? I am currently looking into a 525 to test alongside the Nighthawk but need these details confirmed before buying one.
The modem is the Huawei B525s-65a.
I haven't looked into locking in bands, we have only had it a week.
Have downloaded LTEInspecteur but haven't had a play. It does give options to select bands for CA etc. I'll have a play with it tonight or tomorrow while I'm home sick.
From within the modem you can select 4G only, 4G no 2300 and 4G 2300 only. We get best speeds on 4G only. Not seperate bands as such.
Snagged a 525 today so will see how it goes against the Nighthawk connected to the externals
Would be good to see what sort of results you get.
Ill do some testing tomorrow when no one is home and see what numbers i can get on different bands. Especially keen on messing with band 40.
I'll hopefully have some results by end of weekend
If you can’t beat them... make money from them.
There’s money in you lot it seems.
