Should the SINR Be fluctuating ? RSSI & RSRP is Pritty stable but SINR seems to go up and down Started off yesterday evening getting 17mbps download, bearing in mind this is rural Ireland which is pretty good, but as the evening when on speeds got worse I’m not sure If this what happens at peak times, of weather was a factor

My sinr varies from 0 to 10 and does jump around a lot, mainly weather and foliage dependant so worst in summer rain when the trees are full of leaves. Download varies from 30 to 60mb. I can see the mast in winter through the trees 4km away. My best download speeds are in winter on frosty days outside peak times, 70 to 80mb.

Thanks for the reply

is there any particular reason why my uploads speeds is near double my download speeds ?

Those connection stats look spot on.

Could just be a lot of users on that mast taking a slice of available bandwidth.

Have you tried locking onto any other mast in your area?

When I have had that issue I have had to play around with the antenna, moving around a bit and doing speed tests sorts it out, sometimes you can get reflections so a direct aim is not always the best.

Yes other masts were giving much higher readings, and speed was much the same, this is as good as I could get
