If anybody is in that area and could please do a 4G Spark network speed test for me that would be great.

 

My parents are considering getting Spark 4G Wireless broadband. I’m curious to see some speed test so I can advise them if it’s any good.

 

TA.

4G performance on a phone is may not be indicative of wireless broadband performance.

Thanks for your input. Appreciate it. I was thinking if it was not on the front page it would go unnoticed.

I can tell you it’s good coverage. There are two cell sites in that area. One on the hospital and the other by the old Tomoana freezing works.

I get about 70/120 down and 60/80 up all around Hastings

Is a 4G modem in a phone not as powerful as a modem designed specially for a wireless broadband modem?

They are in the best spot for Spark. 2D and Vodafone also have good speeds in Frimley so you have a pick of all three providers.

The cells sites for all three are very close to each other. 2D is another one you should consider
