Subject speed on 4G LTE Network
Dear Teltonika Crowd forum,
I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask for advice on my dilemma.
If not, maybe you can refer me to the right place.
This is my dilemma:
I have 7 RUT-240 Global routers working for me in South Africa.
They are in a holiday apartment complex.
The complex sits in a bit of difficult corner for 4G LTE signals, so they all have also an outside areal to pick-up the signal.
When we introduced the setup, it was a good enough signal to work with and it was possible to use Wi-Fi for work and pleasure.
Two weeks ago, we bought a little secondhand Mi-Fi router for guests to bring along with them when they where on the road, so they still could stay connected to the internet.
The model is a TP-Link M7300 version 3.0
The guests who have used it, started providing some feedback to us that the speed of the Mi-Fi was better then on the Wi-Fi in the apartments.
At first we thought, this has something to do with the difficult signal we are getting at the apartments versus the usage of the Mi-Fi whilst being on the road.
But in the end, we decided to do a test in 1 of the apartments with the same SIM card at 3 different times of the day, swapping the SIM from the Teltonika RUT-240 to the TP-Link M7300.
The difference was astonishing and then to think of the fact that the little Mi-Fi has not even got an outside areal and is older in production date then the Teltonika.
We thought, something must be wrong here, but what?
<!--[endif]-->This was a long introduction for my very basic question:
What could possibly be wrong?
Is there maybe something wrong in my default settings of the RUT-240 routers that it cannot handle the maximum speeds of the 4G LTE signal?
I really have no idea and hope you can tell / help me.
I have added the snapshots of the speed tests (done with speedtest.net) to this ticket.
Below some technical information on the Teltonika and the TP-Link router.
I really hope someone has a brilliant idea and tip for me
Thanks again in advance, for all the help on this crowd forum, I really love it.

Thanks a lot for the very quick response, that is really appreciated.
Would any of the RUTX models work, or can you advice a particular type.
For me the strenght of the 4G LTE is important and a strong indorr wifi signal is preferred.
Thanks for the help in advance.
