We are using a Huawei B525 wireless modem and while download speeds are acceptable (30 MB/s), uploads are currently so slow (0.10 MB/s) that Internet is hard to use I've switched to using my phone instead. Any suggestions? Details as follows.
We are in Hawthone East and the modem shows 5 Bars so, signal seems fine and latency is currently about 30mS. My phone is also on Optus and if I run a speed test on that, I get about 30 Mb/s uploads so, it seems like the Optus network is fine.
Anything I can try to fix this issue?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Still having this problem. Uploads thru Huawei 0.15 MB/s. Whereas, if I switch to my phone (also on Optus) I get 17.1 MB/s uploads. This is making Internet use very difficult 😞
Just tried changing APN from ltebroadband to yesinternet and authentication from CHAP to PAP.
Now getting 9.92 Mbps download and 8.4 Mbps upload (was getting only 0.1 Mbps upload). So, not fast, but usable.
However, if I run the same speed test on my phone, I currently get about 20 Mbps down and up.
Paddylee... you're my hero 🙂
Upload speeds have gone from 0.15 Mbps to 25 Mbps. That is... not too shabby 🙂
Plus as an added bonus, we are currently getting 29 Mbps downloads.
So Paddylee, thank you 🙂
