Thanks for trying to assist me here.

We have 2x B315s-607 Rbi Routers connected to a load balancing router 50/50

I guess the speeds we were told would be for when the tower is one day upgraded to 4G

iphone 5S
Galaxy S6
2 ipad 

When in town, i can get get dual carrier on the field tests. And no problems in Dunedin on 4G

@Mal1234 I am sure it's the site that got a transmission upgrade in the last 2 weeks but no extra capacity for 3G or 4G added yet

Thanks @johnr

Last we heard from tech support upgrade or planned work was completed on 26 oct.

Is there plans to increase capacity or upgrade to 4G.  There are several others in very close proximity that would benefit from this.  We can have 30+ connected to our wifi at times and with limited speeds it does cause a few headaches

All sites will get 4G over time and 30 devices will be smashing the WiFi

Load balancing between two 3G connections on the same site has a real world potential to deliver worse performance, not better.

Thanks for the feedback.

We are a rural property and RBI is the only thing that is available.  We know 30+ connections on RBI is not the best solution.  We do limit the available speed available to people connected to the wifi.  

Unless there is some other way, which is cost effective, we would be incredibly interested.

What i have installed to date.
2 Rbi router
Unifi switch 
unifi edge router load balancing 50/50
8 Unifi APs.

We are not the only one in this situation in our local area. There are plenty of others that could do with additional bandwidth.

We have 2 cell/data accounts with VF.  2 data plans, and also 2 RBI connections, so things get pretty expensive each month.
Current data usage 200-300 Gb month.
