Just curious as to how consistent that is if you are in a non blind spot?

 

Also outside spark is vodafone worth considering?

If you are in a blind spot, I'd expect 0/0

Why not pickup a simcard and test it on your device?

 

 

 

The HWB modem will provide a better and more consistent experience.

 

If your phone doesn't support L700, then you will likely miss out on the specturm that would reach a 'blind spot'

 

 

 

If your phone supports CA (You will see LTE+) then this will be like preformance one would see with the HG618s rather than the normal B351s

 

 

 

 

 

Atleast personally i wouldn't look at Vodafone, purely because many of their WBB offerings include 3G which to someone who isn't aware of all the ins and outs, the product could preform less than intended. (eg get stuck running on 3g until a reboot)

I've gotta ask about the title actually...

 

 

 

have you ran a speedtest and thus getting that number and wondering what your best peak speed will be?

mobile networks are fluid things and its could be higher or lower depending on load

 

 

but come on take some time and write out a post that makes sense, you seem to rush posts and replies and have to make a comment minutes after your last post.

I think he's asking how consistent is the speed if it's 36 Mb/s down and 10 Mb/s up, on Spark Wireless? I think.

if that was the case, i'd say not as consistent as his current fibre connection.

Thanks John.

 

Im facing the awful prospect of moving after only just having got fibre working. And the area has very limited vdsl streets etc. So wireless might be my only option. Im just planning ahead.

 

The map shows good coverage. But I remember once when 2 degrees map said I was in Zone and I wasnt, back when they had the 12GB option. I had to fight to get my money back and then spend a fortune every week for a few months on Spark wireless. But mobile broadband pricing has improved a lot.

 

The only issue is its the only source of TV, netflix etc, so 120GB will get chewed up rather quickly even with settings set to low on Netflix.

That is very unfortunate.

Considered the 240g plan if its avalible there?
