Re: Huawei B525 - firmware guide to enable bridge mode and m

Pointless until the mast is upgraded, as technology moves so quickly there is no point in buying based on some unknown future mast upgrade.

And given Three and EE have a lot of their masts run in a joint venture by MBNL, once upgraded, you might look at EE performance as well.

Whats the difference between "interband" and Intraband contiguous?

I am trying to work out for the following scenarios what would be best?

EE have 1800mhz on a mast (double speed) assuming that means 2 carriers on band 3? What would this be classed as intra or inter band?

Trying to work out the best router for this combo and any potential future ones if ee upgrade to include 2600mhz too - i dont think this is likely in the short term tho.


Thanks!

Hi, I've read through this whole thread to try and establish which device I should buy for a Three unlimited data SIM. I need some help deciding please smile

My requirements are best performance, bridge mode, and possibly want to plug in a phone.

I think the b715 is the best router but it depends on the 2CA and 3CA combinations active on my local tower. However, I'm not sure it's worth the extra and the hassle of importing one.

The b535 sounds like it might be the best option as the 2CA band combinations mean I'll get downloads better than the b525.

The b525 seems like the best choice for custom firmware and tweaking of bands.

Have I missed anything ?

Also if a B525 is locked to EE, will flashing the custom firmware unlock it for Three?

I came to the same conclusion

The 715 can be got for around 140-150, but the 818 looks significantly better for around 200+. Then there's the really nice 5G Pro - for around 350-425!

Since I'm only looking initially at a temporary option for an unknown number of months - 1? 12? who knows - I think the 535 (79 on a 1 month contract) is the best option. Will be a shame to KNOW I could do better though.

After moving it will be back to cable, fttp, or 5G ....

[re: hoopla] [link to this post]
 
Based on what I've read on this thread, I think all of those are overkill as you won't get faster speeds than what you will get with the b535. Three don't support 3ca, unless you're going to go with EE I don't think it will be faster.

Happy for someone else with more knowledge to confirm or deny this....

So I posted a few weeks ago about the B535 for home broadband. I just setup the B535 with three today (brighton). A little underwhelming in performance at around 24-31 down and 4-12 up. I had hoped the local mast had B20, B32 and with CA the perf might be a fair bit above this.

Does anyone know how to check which bands are being used on the B535, and how to persuade it to try other bands?
I've seen some mention of an android app - but I only have iOS and MacOS. Any ideas?

Here's the full data I have so far from the modem -> https://gist.github.com/40959b317fa15580ecc930ce1b88...

This definately suggests it's locked onto band 3. I don't see evidence of CA, but am unsure what to look for.

Any tips on later firmware?
