Three network 5G roll out making gains

Uh oh a year? I wonder what took them so long.
It was installed fairly promptly, but the switch on took forever, probably since the old one was microwave backhaul, the new one being fibre.

I sure hope it doesn't take that long for mine. Hopefully not seeing there's a next month date for my test hole. :LOL:

I sure hope they don't find a rock the size of Gibraltar where X marks the spot. :rolleyes:

Looks like i'll be waiting a long while then still then (and still am). Maybe they have to remove old poles serving an area? There are 2 quite close to me which incidentally are performing poorly now
Upload speeds for me have taken a nosedive , would regularly see 20/30+mbit now its sub 5.

Three seem to have made a change in how they use CA here, Band 3 used to CA with 20, now it will only do CA with 20 as the primary band, a welcome change since i no longer get stuck on band 20 only with terrible data speeds.

I solely locked 20 and 32 bands as that’s all it ever worked on.

When 1 and 3 were included it wouldn’t work.
Here to, but only with band 3 as the primnary band, never witth 20 as primary, when i used to fall onto band 20 it didnt CA and was extremely slow

Tbh I think it’s down to the device carrier policy and aggregation settings. Peter C changed his carrier settings on his OP 9 pro so he could access SA 700MHz in a video. Just a thought

On my B525 if I select bands 3 and 20 then B20 will always be the primary, never works the other way around.
cacombos.com says it should work either way so it must be the network that dictates what CA combo works on any given mask.

SA 5G, in UK?! Which video is this?
SA 4G!

His device Carrier Settings were only letting him connect to 700MHz 4G if the 5G connection was there so he modified it to let him connect to SA 700MHz. Did I mention this was on Three

What...?

This isnt SA - Peter modified his policy so that B28 will now aggregate with other 4G carriers on Three, the configurations for which his device didn't have originally.
B28 was originally only available as a single band (no other 4G carriers in aggregation), or in combination with n78 5G.

Oooh ok, I must have misunderstood. Sorry about that everyone :D

Decided to get closer to the new 5G mast in Congleton and test the speeds, very disappointing for 5G with 100mhz bandwidth!
