SIM / mobile account refresh?
#4
Argh; it happened again. This morning download limited to 10Mbit/s and upload limited to 8Mbit/s. Signal strength stats on LTE H-Monitor looked normal. Fixed by trying to manually connect to O2 network within router settings then switching back to automatic network selection. Then speed back up to 65Mbit/s download and 18Mbit/s upload. After some testing I see I can recreate this issue by restarting the router and in some of the restarts this issue will manifest. LTE H-Monitor shows same Cell Id and eNB Id in this throttled mode and the so I do not think it is because my router is connecting to a different mast.

So I think what is happening is that sometimes when my router connects to the mast it gets set to a throttled mode for some reason? Once in this throttled mode it seems I have to keep reconnecting and eventually I will get back onto the normal mode of operation. So it is as if for some reason there is a kind of mode selection on connection and it is not being consistently applied. Does this make any sense? Anything I can do?

Looking through this thread here:

https://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Network-...250/page/2

I wonder if perhaps the problem lies with my local mast given the ultimate fix that sorted the complaint in that thread:

"Vodafone does not apply traffic management to customers on the Max Unlimited plan and so there should have been no reason for Mr XXXXX (Covered to protect Privacy) to experience better speeds via a VPN than he did when connecting directly to the Vodafone network. The testing we conducted revealed a faulty security gateway board that was resulting in slower speeds for customers’ services. This has been replaced and customers will now be experiencing faster speeds in the area."
