RBLHGR success story

Fri May 24, 2019 5:47 pm

I've been using Mikrotik since ~2000. I am retiring to a farm and it is in typical "rural america".

There is no "highspeed" wired options. There is ADSL from the local phone company that runs 3M/500K D/U for $50/month. Yes.. a whopping 1/2 M up and it's unreliable to say the least.

T-Mobile has allowed unlimited hotspotting which gave us around 10M/10M, but that was after I installed a Wilson Electronics cellular repeater on the roof because of the poor cell service out here.

When I saw MT release the RBLHGR, I couldn't have been happier. Got one right away and put it on the roof. WOW. MT to the rescue. As you can see by the pics, the service is way better than the ADSL option.

Very incredible speed! I'm thinking that if LHG could has gigabit ethernet, you can get a little bit more.

What is your RSRP?

Regards.

Ping times (and specially ping jitter) indicate that there's other activity on the same LTE cell and it's questionable if OP could really get higher speed ... at least not during same day time as he did the test. But anyway, it's quite likely that load on "his" LTE cell will just increase with time and that the 100Mbps ethernet port bottleneck will become less important.

Pretty sweet. Do you ever have any issues with the sim disconnecting from the operator network? or the LTE interface disappearing from the Interface list

Sorry for the delayed response, but here is the data from my router.
I have not seen random disconnects. The connection stays up for weeks at a time. Most of the resets are me or the power. On the farm we lose power more than you would think.

.

The interesting thing is, if I run a bidirectional test FROM the router... it just kills the poor little thing and performance drops below the speed of the LTE link.
