i think its wider than just my house and openreach don't want to rectify the issue and leave it till everyone is on FTTP and claim it didnt happen, like three's strategy to 'fixing' their 4G.My service at home from a BT Wholesale provider has been acting up the past week or so, but I don't think its anything on the line thats causing my issue, however I turned to my Vodafone connection as backup and I've got a new bunch of problems occuring there now too.
Internet in the UK going to , lots of it seems to be stemming from censoring/filtering/snooping.
Almost 300Mbps from 4G+ and they're all at it up-selling poorer performing 5G like it's something direct from the messiah.And another one, also Canary Wharf, slightly different place. Close to 300 Mbps. Signal is bouncing real good off those sky scrapers.
This is almost better than EE's 5G at home.
I'm getting deja-vu (or perhaps groundhog day...) with you Buggerlugz!Almost 300Mbps from 4G+ and they're all at it up-selling poorer performing 5G like it's something direct from the messiah.
I'm thinking we're being lied too here? Do all the carriers take us for fools?
There is so much scope in the existing 4g technology to "easily" provide a consistent 100Mbps for everyone. Surely it'd be cheaper than even bothering with installing new 5G masts and tech, to just provide more spectrum and mast back/front-haul for existing 4g+ connections?
Because 5G is continuing past the point where 4G+ has got to - if, to achieve 300Mbps with 4G its needed to aggregate 4 bands and have 4x4MIMO on a couple of them, then that requires expense, both in terms of radio R&D for the user device and cost of basebands/antennas on the network side, plus there's the power, maintenance, re-configuration etc all needed too, which becomes more expensive (more complex) with more frequencies to juggle.I get that Gavin, but like I said if 5G is going to return slower speeds generally than what some 4G+ masts are currently capable of, what is the point? They wouldn't need to replace 4G if they all kicked out 300Mbps would they? Likewise if 5G isn't going to provide at the very least a consistent 1Gbps (a 10th of what its capable of) why bother with the investment of spectrum and kit, regardless of return?
So far it's been OK. That's really all I can say but we do get the full 30 down 5 up we are supposed to get on it so it's good in that regard. I feel slightly lied to as they told me it would kick in immediately and that I wouldn't notice a drop when in reality you have to wait 2 mins for if the connection comes back up before it actually works. Not too bad though concidering it's unlimited backup internet for £7!
