we have recently got 2 pcs of TRB245 that according to catalogue have LTE4.

tested with all operators and speeds are very low than expected. a steady maximum it was 15-16 Mbps with some spikes at 35-40Mbps.

LTE signal is -48 to -55 dbm. same sim card gives 80 - 90 Mbps tested on Iphone or android device.

is there any specific config or firmware that affects LTE connection?

The difference in speeds can be explained by the fact that LTE cat4 modems are not capable of carrier aggregation, which would be a significant factor in regards to increased performance. Your iphone and android devices might also employ some form or MIMO and other advanced signal processing techniques, missing in TRB245.

I would suggest to try setting custom LTE bands, to look for possible improvements. You can do it in the WebUI, by going to Network -> Mobile -> General section and switching to Manual option of Band selection setting. A different antenna can also be tested. 

Best regards,
