LTE Speed on weak signal on WAP AC LTE 6

Fri Mar 27, 2020 12:04 am

Hello,

I just purchased and installed WAP ac LTE 6 and side by side to my mobile phone and shitty old Alcatel, WAP AC LTE 6 is much slower.

Speedtest gets 7-8Mbps on Mikrotik, on my phone ~28Mbps and shitty Alcatel ~20. RSRP/RSRQ is almost the same on the phone as on mikrotik. And mikrotik has huge antennas!

How is this possible? Am I doing something wrong? Maybe faulty product? Or LTE Cat 6 modem is not performing well?

THX!

If you compare i$Phone then be sure you compare with 6 or 6s model, all newer have bigger category then r11e-LTE6.
The case similar to you should be: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=158719 .
Please check post with images .

You should check at what bands works your phone, what CA, what signal-s. Then you can compare those devices.

Hi Sib,

thank you for your reply. I did check with Samsung S10e. Signal is about the same. Even if signal was -91 (which is good), the speed was ~10Mbps (same channel). As I said, even my shitty Alcatel One Touch Y850 was much better. https://www.4gltemall.com/alcatel-one-touch-y850.html

I gave up and returned device. I'll probably go and order SXT LTE 6 and place it under the roof or on chimney. Should I expect the same issues with this device?

OK, after reading thru threads. What would you recommend? Custom 800Mhz antenna with LtAP mini?

I just want to have Mikrotik a not some f*cking mobile Alcatel :).

THX!

Jaromir

Edit: I'll probably go with this one: http://www.panorama-antennas.com/site/i ... uct_id=292 and LtAP mini. Is it good idea?

In your place first what I do.... it's a good scan of my region.
When I try found your region from data you provide, at CellMapper.net then I not have any info.
You can install CellMapper app, update thanks that app the info about your BTS... some car travel in cov time are not best plan :( but then you know where is your Best BTS.
You can do a directional antenna and try found the best tower and band.... . I use to this usb e3372 and directional antenna.

Best way is use spacific band antenna and modem with good power out.
I not see many BTS in your region, if he is correctly marked via CellMapper who found your eNB 862331 in T-Mobile ISP but he cannot place on map your bts...

Hi! Thank for your email!

There are 2 BTS towers. Both 800Mhz. https://en.mapy.cz/zakladni?mereni-vzda ... ncXT5vKkHS

The one that is 3km has better connection I guess. I can get up to 80Mbps with my Samsung S10e when I'm outside and when I'm roamed to it. With the same signal and when roamed to second bts (the one that is ~2km) I get ~20Mbps.

The question is - has ltap mini enough power for the panorama antenna http://www.panorama-antennas.com/site/i ... uct_id=292 ? Maybe the built in antenna will be sufficient when placed outside?
