Hey all,
I am at a family members tonight and have gone to put up some Netflix on the tv and nothing but buffer. Done a quick speedtest, 0.2 mbps up and down (can post screenshots if wanted), and 300ms ping.
The modem is a B315 and is running off a RCG tower about 1km away. I’m running out of ideas, any help welcome.

Unlikely, but still possible. Out rural, a handful of people down the road. I can get fast speeds on mobile data.

My guess is the radio in the modem is dead or almost dead - Time for a new one

Request a 4G modem that supports carrier aggregation, I am sure the B315 did not support CA

I’ll look into it, I plugged in an antenna and that helped marginally, pointing in the wrong direction though..
