Hi all - my parents live on a farm so I've recently got an unlimited data SIM to use as mobile Wifi which will be loads better than their cabled broadband service. I'm using a TP-LINK - Archer MR400 router and I get download speeds of c10mbps, much better than the c1 Mbps with TalkTalk - however, my own phone uses EE and I get download speeds of c120 Mbps. Do we know why this would be and do we have any tips for improving the speed? Thanks
Hi Dave - thanks for getting back to me so quickly!
That makes a lot of sense, and isn't surprising really however is there anything I can do to improve the speed I get? Can I get on specific bands through my router? Would any other tech help me be able to get faster speeds?
Thanks for following up - are you able to answer the follow up question:
Simplistically the aim is to get the fastest speed possible 🙂 however it's clear (and understandable) that VM have access to fewer bands than someone like EE but... is there any way to understand the speed on each band? Then choose the fastest band? Or is this something that the TP-LINK - Archer MR400 router will do itself?
Thanks for getting back to me and again, apologies if the questions were incorrect. I suppose in my head I was just double checking that there wasn't anything I can do from a network provider side - which it sounds like there isn't.
