Huawei dongle speeds are not as promised

Lookout
Hi I just signed a 16 months contract with 3 for the 750gb dongle modem and it promises up to 300mbps yet I'm getting only 4mbps download and barely 1 of an upload there is only 4 signal bars and trust me I tried moving it around and see if I could get full still nothing I'm sick of testing the internet connection because its using up my gbs also it's mainly for gaming on a playstation 4 can anyone help also I live in a mobile home

Did you buy it online? As far as I know, if you did you have 14 days to return if unhappy with it for any reason.

@DarylG33 Have you tried connecting your console to your router using the ethernet cable? it would get rid of any interference which could be giving you less speeds? What router are you using? If its the new router then you can open your dashboard 192.168.8.1 and switch on 5ghz only. I've seen a few articles here where this improves the speeds but clearly, it won't work on WiFi. Try that when you're gaming and then switch to 2.4ghx when using WiFi. Test it out and come back here to let us know if it works.

It doesn't give me that option I rang 3 they tried to sort it but I haven't
a clue if its gonna work or not.

Re: Huawei dongle speeds are not as promised

You enter 192.168.1.8 or 192.168.8.1 into your browser then username and pword are admin. Click on settings and then WLAN settings. You'll see 2.4 and you'll see 5ghz. Enable 5 GHz by disabling 2.4ghz. I've seen some screen shots and once you're in those settings it's easy to follow and save/apply. I'd try this and see how you go.

"it promises up to 300mbps"

May be the router is capable of 300 mbps, at peak times with Three if you get 3mbps you are lucky. may be that is why they call it 3
