4g broadband - any good


[link to this post]
 
While this service is apparently only in London at present, there seems to be plans to roll the service out beyond the capital but does it do what it says on the tin?

Not bad at all! Going to keep an eye on this - if they can guarantee that it's just as reliable (and fast, in terms of latency) as having FTTC, I would definitely move to this service!

Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (BQMv4) | IPv6 via HE (BQMv6) | 60/20Mb FTTC
Previous ISPs: <aaisp.net> | Virgin Media (50Mb/Cable) | Be* Un Limited | Zen

I was one of the first that joined their service before they changed to MyNow and then, Relish. I was trying to keep it as a back up device as at that time I thought dial-up was too slow. It was a 256kps download then laugh but the dual wan I got at that time wouldn't work with their modem so sent back the lot.

I wrote to them to ask if they're looking for Beta-Testers in my area as they seem to be just one mile down where I live so they'll hopefull expand going west smile

I signed up on the day it hit the news.

Have a site survey type installation happening this Friday.

Will keep you posted.

Thank you and let us know how you get on with their service, please. laugh (no answer to my email about beta testing for my area but even with their previous incarnations they were pretty [censored] at communication)

It is now installed - huge disconnect between the customer services/sales people on the phone and actual on-the-road engineers and technical teams, but we finally got there in the end over a period of 6 hours today.

Very pleased with the speeds and latency so far. Will post more later once I've done a few internal position tests for best signal etc.

Our speed tests

should hopefully auto detect your Relish connection now.

In reply to a post by fearby:

My understanding is they run their own network.
