Speed issue with Lyca sim in MikroTik device

If GG and Lyca are both mvnos it is weird that the speed is so different though(35 vs 10).
To be fair the speed has got better on Lyca since I opened this thread. There is just a slight difference between Lyca and GG. The problem is that both Lyca and GG seem to connect to transmitters a long way a way. I should be getting a very decent speed as there is a transmitter half a mile away that my dish is pointing to! Maybe it's time to try a genuine 02 sim? But then with 02 I will probably end up paying double what I do on Lyca.

Are people saying band 20 is normally faster than band 40? As I don't find that in my case.

That is strange, how about when the sim is in your phone, can you connect to the nearest mast? No doubt O2 would cost more but they sometimes have some decent offers available. I haven't tested band 20 vs 40 personally so can't comment on that.

O2 have deployed 10 MHz at band 20, 40 MHz at band 40, 5 MHz at band 3, 10 MHz at band 8, 20 MHz at band 28 and 10 MHz at band 1.

Now I don't know what you can see in your local area, but band 40 has the biggest bandwidth available, followed by band 28, band 8, band 1, band 20 and finally band 3.

Just tested my R11e-LTE6 on the latest v033 firmware.
Locally I can see B40, B20 and B1 using my Giffgaff sim.
Without locking bands, it aggregates Band 1 + Band 20.

Performance is shocking, 0.7 down and 5 up.
Ah O2 report a fault on my local mast...

Still not a fan of the r11e-lte6 though, I think my r11e-lte fares better.
