Dear Vodafone,

When Kaukapakapa got first upgraded to 4g, the dowload speed was between 15mb and 45mb.
Now it is between 2mb and 5mb between 7pm and 10pm..ah wait at 2am is good again...but guess what...i am sleeping..
You also have changed from 700mhz to 1700mhz...(rbi)
Maybe is time to increase panels and bandwidth?

I forgot to mention that if I do check my mobile data (which connects to the same exact tower) is 700mhz and the speed is between 20mb and 25mb download!
So...this is solely down (no pun intended) to Vodafone restricting and playing with bandwidth

Im in waitoki, I get a solid 40 Down / 35 Up prettry much allways, and some times during the day up its 50-60 down and 45 up, occasionally its 70-93down

 

Speed is all over the show, Latency is allways sub25ms   this thing is good but i wanted to find out what others are getting and any tricks and tips for tuning some of the settings etc to get the most out of it.

 

I run an XPOL-v2 Antenna and i found that it gets me 25%-100%  better download  speed, the Upload is about 10% lower when using the antenna but its 17 times faster than my VDSL connection so im happy to sacrafice a wee bit of  upload speed using the antenna to get the stable low latency pings and quicker downloads.

 

Please share your experiences
