Hi can you help please am I missing something?
I have just received my EE sim card here in the UK I have a MikroTik SXT 4G kit and have literally plugged it in directly to my Macbook and sat outside looking at the EE mobile mast which is about 1km away with perfect line of site.
The only changes I have made from default are;
1. Created a APN with The name of EE and the APN name of everywhere
2. Under LTE I then set the Network Mode to LTE only and picked Band 3 and Set the APN profile to EE that I created above and then finally ticked Enable and saved.
That's it! The LTE internet connection was made.
My issue is that like I said I have clear line of sight to the mobile mast but the bars on the device only go to 4 not 5 but hay its just a light.
I load speedtest.net and am getting 74Mbps download speed and 30.76Mbps upload with a 36Sec ping which is actually really good compared to the BT phone line speed results.
Well that's all good the only thing is that the iPhone7+ which was with me was getting 120Mbs download with an upload of 35.7 and a 42Sec ping.
My client saw this and is wanting to know why the specialist Mikrotik isn't getting close to the same speed as an iPhone.
Have I missed a setting or is this normal?
Should I have bought a different Router for him with such a good signal and line of sight?
