Huawei B618 LTE-A Pro

bolt.pngHuawei released its new router which is cat11 . with download speed up to  600 MBit/s in the downlink and 50 MBit/s in the uplink.  4 × 4 MIMO  which is really interesting .

cat11 means triple aggregation . better than cat6 which is two ..

there is one catch here you need to watch your Operator does it support it or not . also if you have cat6 with lower speed don’t expect with cat11 you will get higher since the operator network might be congested .

so be careful from some operators saying getting this router you will get higher speed . don’t be foil for commercial stuff 🙂

Verify Your ISP Internet Speed

4gmark

For Most speedtest.net is the usual site to verify ISP/Telco speed. how accurate is it I’m not sure .but I’m sure of one thing . when you are running a speedtest you run it against your provider ! so in this case you measure the speed to your provider network ! not the external internet speed ! .

what is the catch . some providers give speedtest ( the local hosted one ) more priority so when you perform a test you will always get higher speed ! . but when trying to browse the internet you will feel it slow .

some providers throttle Torrent and other kind of apps which we can speak about later .

 

there is a new site that measure the speed and experience in different way which personally I like . they don’t download a file or do ping only . they perform multiple tests such as running youtube in different quality ( SD,HD) .  in addition they started to give ranking to providers in Kuwait for example

they are not the best but they are very cool . try them and tell me what do you think 🙂 . link below

also they have iPhone,andrio app

LTE Watch

There is a good site offer a great tool to manage your Huawei Router . it is usually used to troubleshoot signal related such as RSSI etc . but the beauty of this tool is the following .

ability to change Freq yes . you can force your Huawei Router to which Operator Freq it can connect to . such as 800Mhz , 1800Mhz , 2600Mhz .

sometime operator Freq is congested ( loaded ) . so you could play around to find a good freq to connect to .

don’t forget also you could force LTE-A if you prefer .

 

this is really a great tool and I advise any Tech person to give it a shot ..

 

one note , for Huawei Router it has special image so make sure you download the right tool for Huawei router .
