CPE Pro slow 5G speeds

Hi

I have recently bought a Huawei H112-372 and can not get anything above 100mb/s out of it, i have put a Poyting xpol-0001 5G antenna outside at high level but that made very little difference, but if i stand in the same place with my iphone 12 that gets speeds around 350mb/s, (indoors) both devices are on EE

the signal on the CPE Pro are currently as following:

internal antenna

RSRQ -9.0
RSRP -94
RSSI <=- 113
SINR 1

External antenna

RSRQ -8.0
RSRP -93
RSSI -67
SINR 1

I live on top of a hill and the cell tower is in bottom of valley, although i can't see it, it should be pretty much unobstructed,


BTW, is there any chance the router could be fake? i got it for a very low price, but unwittingly bought it from China! everything seems fine and genuine, just not very fast, like it could be 4G........

The lights on the router, and the web UI, should show the 5G connection - does it?

From the metrics, SINR of 1 is low, are you sure that's right?

Hi,

yes 5G light is on, signal strength is showing full for 4G and one from full on 5G (normally full but is very windy at moment)

Sounds like you need a directional antenna, not an omni.
Try Panorama WMM8G-7-38 5G or Poynting xpol-2 5G, move it around until your signal improves.
