Re: Home Broadband very poor

If you read my initial post, I've tried the router in various locations both inside and outside the house.

Hmm i wonder has your coverage changed since three has rolled out their new 4g network, i.e. Before you had good 3G coverage but now that cell is gone and the 4g cell doesnt have as good coverage as the old 3G

Hi Joolz,

 

I've tried the Simm in a phone and the speeds are not much different, download was 3.4Mb, upload 2.3mb. When i reseated the Simm back into the Huawei router initially the Network Status LED display was Red. Rebooted the router again and it returned to Blue. Tried another data speed test, currently 1.69md download, 1.73mb upload, brutal. 

Tired various times today - DL between 0.6 & 1.4mb, upload 1.1 - 1.6mb. This is not a proper service..... What is the point in spending €30 a month for dismal speed like this.

I'd like to send you out a new sIM card Eddie to see if this will boost the signal. Can you PM me your address & I'll get this out to you.

Hi,

 

I've received and activated the new Simm but the speed both download and upload has not changed, fluctuating between max 4.8mb (once) to .81mb download & 3mb to .88mb upload. I was getting 1 bar from the 4G (sometimes nothing) so I configured the router for 3G only and I'm getting 3-4 bars but no difference in speed. I installed the Simm in my old B315 - no difference. It's a far cry from the min 8mb up to 24mb download speed I was getting using the B315 on the 60GB contract I had two years ago. This to me suggests that the current congestion outweighs the amount of Bandwidth that Three can provide as an acceptable service. This to me is unacceptable as a customer paying €30 a month for dial up speeds.

Having the exact same issues as Eddie set out above. Same speeds. It's a pathetic internet speed. I would appreciate if you could set out how to configure the Huawei B525 router to improve. Or if Eddie managed to improve his connection how he did so
