Re: Fast

Ditch your Broadband contract and tether to your phone if it is so important.

Re: Fast

As Mike says - or get a 4G/5G BB contract from the network that is giving you that and use the supplied SIM and MiFi dongle.

Re: Fast

Only got this speed in Sainsbury’s car park waiting for other half,I live a mile away but still on 4G here.

Have 100mb with VM and get 111mb all times of the day won’t be getting rid of my little white router trialed it before the 3Hub was released never ever had a problem with it even took it with me when I moved.

Only just got the phone and didn’t realise we had 5G in the area never thought it would be that fast have to find out where the mast is.

Re: Fast

speeds that will eat up most moble data allowances in about 120 seconds 🙂

and they may be fast now but when more 5g phones use it it will drop very case.
Also the speed will drop at a very short distance from the cell tower or inside
