I just installed 2degrees Rural Wireless Broadband at an address in Whangarei and noticed fairly high latency; 30-70ms to Auckland on 2degrees vs 7-9ms on other wireless networks in the area.


It seems all traffic is going via [] which appears to be located in the South Island?


Is this normal 2degrees backhaul or is there anyway to improve routing?


  • Router: Huawei B618 (via LAN)
  • Connection: 2degrees (4G)
  • APN: snapws
  • WAN IP Address: 111.69.238.XX
  • PCI: 25
  • CELL_ID: 1745926
  • RSRQ: -8.0dB
  • RSRP: -93dBm
  • SINR: 2dB
  • PLMN: 53024  
  • Speed Down: 42.26Mbps
  • Speed Up: 36.77Mbps

All the fixed wireless access traffic is treated as fixed broadband for the purposes of network management. That means that although the mobile core handles the access, it is forwarded through the fixed network infrastructure to reach the internet, rather than the mobile network gateway.

30ms is normal for LTE. Your 7-9ms comparisons obviously aren't 4G.
