Is your plan older than 6 months?
Its strange the phone is getting much better speeds. Are you running speed tests in exactly the same spot? Could you try move your modem somewhere else (just for testing).
Optus does make no promises on its 4G network speeds unfortunately. I'm not sure if they treat mobile phone and mobile broadband plans differently in how much bandwidth each is allocated. Both should be uncapped (if newer than 6 months old plans)

Answer to you sugestions I have 1 router 200 Gb plan 2 share data sim modems set up in the best locations in our home for best reception for the last 10 years
I have always had great service until the last month, my mobil broadband plan, I had the sim card rebooted by optus no sucess. I can't understand why optus can't except their (mobil Broadband internet is failing me) I have had to use my mobil iphone as a modem when my internet complety stops working in the evening at night to streem movies, my wife uses her mobil iphone as a modem for her ipads also at night
why this is failing only Optus knows that not good enough ( OPTUS ) ? Ian

So the plan you are on is older than 6 months? I ask because that would mean the speed is capped to 12Mbps (is that the speed you were getting?)
The fact your Optus mobile is getting good speeds suggest one of two things to me.
1) The home broadband speed is somehow differentiated to mobile phone 4G speed. If this is the case congestion in your area might only affect on and not the other.
2) There's an issue with the tower, bands, modem etc. You might need to request Optus send out a technician to test signal strength where you are. Perhaps a nearby tower has a fault or is down?

I bought a new ipad with plan just last month with Optus date speed same as mobil broadband I beleive the towers have changed we have 5 towers aroud us my data speed can drop from 70 Mbps to 7.5 to 0.68 Mbps then no data at all with in 5 minuites thats why I know that the towers swaping my date to another tower are causing the drop out this happend several years ago Optus sent me a new modem problem solved
