Oppo 5G CPE T1 for UK?

Looking at getting a more reliable 4g/5g router (5g is imminent in my area) and put off by the constant problems with Huawei routers specially the 5g version which needs regular reboots in order for it to work.

Stumbled across this and the spec looks good for the price, worth a risk for here in the UK?

If it's for Three (or EE), is that really a big deal though? There's not much to gain from B20 if you're thinking Carrier Aggregation.
Do you think it's worth a risk or get the CPE Pro 2 and hope they have fixed all the issues with the CPE Pro?

Are you on Three? It may not be the router itself that’s causing the issues if so. Huawei’s equipment is generally very reliable.

yeah I am on three, looking at something more future proof so I can make use of my wife 6 enabled devices in my home and add to that I updated my firmware on my B535 and cannot change wireless bands anymore!

The Oppo looks like a rebranded Huawei 5g router to me. It comes with a Snapdragon X55 so that kinda gives it away.

The wireless bands setting being unchangeable means you’ve got the auto band switching and nighttime band checking turned on I think?
The other issues are mostly all Three related. You wouldn’t have to reboot nightly on other networks.

I used some firmware from from a non-uk site which I think messed it up, will definitely check though regardless

You may have ran into an issue where the firmware you’ve installed has somehow hidden the applicable settings. You may want to swap that back. On the whole though despite the operator restrictions the HUAWEI CPE kit is very stable and reliable. Very much set and forget. Three’s network quirks really let down basically any router though.

Decided to play it safe and will wait until I can get a 5G signal indoors, interestingly though EE have updated their coverage checker for my post code and 5G is enabled now (waiting for sim to arrive hopefully today)

So in the near(ish) future I will have a choice of either EE or 3 for 5G so buying a 5G router will make more sense then.

EE 5G on a router should be very interesting - they have very good back haul capacity.
