Mikro Tik
#28
The router automatically picks the strongest cell on a band for the primary upload cell. The only time I would use cell lock is when multiple bands are picked and you want to force the router to use a particular band for uploading. For example, if bands 1 and 3 ticked and band 3 has a faster upload speed, then it's worth locking to the strongest cell on band 3. However, this generally does not affect the download speed.

If the router was not band locked above, it probably switched bands between testing outside and inside. It could also have connected in 3G mode as 20Mbps is well within 3G's capability. The top speed I've seen on 3G is around 40Mbps. The speed usually also drops towards 6pm as more people go online to start streaming.

I generally recommend leaving 3G unticked as the router can switch to 3G if the 4G connection is interrupted or if there is a brief outage.

For obstructions in the line of sight, it depends a lot on the signal frequency and where the obstructions are. With the 800MHz 4G band and the 900MHz 3G band, those signals diffract better around obstacles, particularly if they are near the midway point like above. The higher frequency bands (1 and 3) are much more sensitive and the signal will sharply drop off the higher the obstruction. Basically, try to get the antenna as high has practically possible outside to minimise how much the signal needs to diffract.
