I bought a RUT950 with SISO external antenna (Poynting OMNI-292) - using the external antenna in the main port with the little plastic antenna it came with left in the aux Mobile and 2 Wifi ports. I'm in the UK and installed this on my boat, we live in a marina less than 1 mile from the nearest cell towers. 

We've been getting speeds of around 5Mbps which is consistent with the speeds I get on my mobile. I have tried different network carriers (Three, O2 and Vodafone) and seem to get the same regardless. I put it down to interference in the area, as we get really poor <2 dB SINR. It's the same when putting the SIM in a mobile, we maybe lose 1Mbps speed vs having it in the RUT-950.

However the other day I picked up an EE SIM and plugged it in my phone to activate - I did a speed test and got about 45Mbps which was (relatively) amazing. The status bar indicated I was on 4G+ (LTE-A). When I put it in the RUT-950 the speeds once again dropped to around 5Mbps with the same SINR issues. I'm wondering whether this drop in speed is just because the RUT-950 can't utilise 4G+, or if the SINR issue might be to do with how we have things configured instead of coming from the environment?

Any tips would be appreciated, thanks

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately RUT950 supports only 4G (LTE), 3G, 2G and it doesn't support 4G+ (LTE-A).

For more information about  LTE Speed Discrepancies I will provide you a link to Teltonika wiki page: https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/LTE_Speed_Discrepancies

You can also check our RUTX series devices or RUT360/TCR100, which support Cat6 (LTE-A) cellular connectivity.

You could also try to change your router frequency band, see if it helps with your network speed.

Here is a tutorial video on how to do it: How to Lock LTE Bands and Why | Teltonika Networks.

Let me now if this helps or if you need further help from me.

Kind regards,

Edvinas
