We have badly degraded wiring and our internet is often hti and misss particularly when it rains and the pit fills with water. I wqas thinking on installing wireless 4G and was inteested in others experience. We also have a granny flat under the house and I was interested in the coverage within a house. Would we need a booster?
I am away from home in a caravan for few months and where I am Vivid Wireless is available. To date I have been extremely pleased and am able to stream video and tv without buffering. There are only two of us using the broadband so in a house with more users don't know how much this would slow your speeds.
With regards to what I have read about coverage I think you may struggle with reception to a granny flat but the worse would be a wifi repeater.
If you are thinking of Vivid you do need to check if it is available at your address.
Adding to @Davelew's comment, Home/Vividwireless has had really great reviews!
A couple of important tidbits:
- Vivid & Home wireless broadband operates in areas where we have the Optus 2300Mhz spectrum available.
- We offer speeds of up to 12Mbps down and 1Mbps up.
- In other supported areas where the 2300Mhz spectrum is unavailable, we'll offer speeds of 5Mbps down and 1Mbps up.
For more info, you can check out our Vivid wireless support page. .
You're still going to experience some packet loss.
It'd be subject to the same factors that impact speed over a standard fixed WiFi connection.
If you sign up to Vividwireless, you're given a Cat.4/LTE Huawei B315. The modem can support up to 32 users.
