SXT LTE speed after 6.43.8 update

Mon Jan 21, 2019 9:33 am

Hello,

Before complaining to my mobile operator would like to check if there could be some improvements in SXT LTE modem from my side.
Could be there such thing that after update speed dropped radically? As a business customer at my mobile operator in working hours I have guaranteed speed for upload/download and if before 6.43.8 got like 38+ mbit/s speed for up/down but now got just up to 10 mbit/s. Do any other users have experienced that? As per tests I made at the same spot, where SXT LTE is positioned, with phone and got better download speed. So current problem is to check if SXT LTE works properly and then if some speed issues is on mobile operator side. As this happened after router upgrade at start need to check on my side.

Any thoughts where to begin?

You will always get a better speed with phone, because Mikrotik is using a very old LTE chipset. Some providers throttle non-phone LTE chip vendors.

I understand that, but before update i had like 40+ mbit/s during working hours, now its bad, so before I rant to mobile operator, wanted to check if there could be some LTE device issues based on new update.

Consulted with my LTE provider and they said that it's now overcrowded in SXT supported frequencies. So to get better internet I will need to switch to other router, that supports more. Sadly that it's not mikrotik one. :(

Have you checked out the new "SXT 4G Kit" MikroTik product?

https://mikrotik.com/product/sxt_4g_kit

It covers the following bands: 3, 7, 20, 31, 41n, 42 and 43, so basically the new spectrum is 41n, 42, and 43, which should all be less crowded frequencies operating mainly with LTE-TDD.

Yes I saw the new SXT kit, but as i'm business customer for mobile operator, they provide me with devices and currently they have only from Huawei.
