One possible option with Vodafone would be to use a Vodafone X prepay phone SIM. This has unlimited data, but the speed capped at 10Mbps, but still plenty for most usage including streaming. For example, YouTube only requires about 5Mbps for Full HD streaming.

To use that SIM in the SXT, you will need to set the APN to: live.vodafone.com

The ethernet ports stopped working, discovered needed to hide the VRF arrow.
Now they are working but if go into ports and OK get this error..need to hide the VRF arrow to get out of it.
Going by the screenshot, it's running v7.0b6 firmware. I suggest updating it as they are on v7.1b2, which seems to be less buggy from my experience. On mine, the VRF drop-down shows 'main', so they like did some change with this in the newer firmware.

Did a test in their attic with no aerial, while locked to 380, it refused to connect to 380 with no aerial connected.
380 showed -116 to -119 RSRP
Town 409 was -98 to -88 and SINR +12 to +20
That would explain why it keeps trying to use cell 409. It will only lock on to a cell when it has a similar or higher reading, otherwise it's like trying to listen to someone talking at a loud party.

Those Iskra mention a front-back ratio of 23dB, which means that it picks up masts 23dB stronger at the front than in the opposite direction. With those readings, the unwanted mast is up 31dB stronger (strongest -88dBm town cell reading vs the weakest -119dBm rural cell reading), so those antennae will need to be installed such that the house is in-between the antennae and the town mast to try attenuating the unwanted signal as much as possible.

Quote:Also, when testing an external aerial, is it ok to hand hold it (obviously with a slight shake) or should it be fixed firm?
There's no issue with holding the panel antenna as long as there is nothing obstructing the front of it. With the LOG antennas, you'll need something to mount them on to temporarily (such as a tripod) as these can only be held by the clamp, which is difficult to do by hand. The arms of the antenna form part of the signal patch, so if you try grabbing any part of the antenna other than the clamp, it will kill the signal.
