I have just taken delivery of a mobile / usb type internet connection.This is supposed to deliver @ 7.2Mbps. When connected it shows max signal strength - bit it is so slow to load a web page & the software upload / download meter shows @ 20 - 30 Kbps speed , it takes @ 2 mins to load my home page , any suggestions please ? Many thanks.
I have a 3 dongle and the best I get with three power bars is up to 1Gb, but then it depends on the traffic on site does it not? Some pod cast I have downloaded take about 3 minutes, but from the same site and same size some times it can be a lot longer!
They advertise 7.2 mbps but in reality most of us get approx. between 2.3 and 3.6 mbps.
It all depends on how far away you are from your nearest mobile broadband mast. And whether or not you have tall structures, steel frame, concrete walls etc... blocking off your signal.
Mobile broadband traffic throughout the day can reduce signal and speed too.
I deal with 3g/HSDPA Dongle/stick antenna boosters. These are not the cheap sticky on sticker things.
If you wish, tell me what kind of signal do you typically get, are you downstairs or upstairs and give me your postcode. I will be able to check on the mast system to see how far it is from you and whether or not you would be likely to benefit from a antenna booster taking in mind the signal you are getting currently.
I have two models, a Omni Directional and a Directional model.
