I will say that I have noticed very little contention.
I chalk that up to there being very few users in my postcode at the moment.
Having said that they have a huge chunk of spectrum available to them in this band - but I don't know how that correlates with bandwidth in the 3.5ghz area.
It is half way between a Mobile LTE connection and a home DSL connection.
PingTest gives the connection an A, the pings are normally around the 30ms mark in the UK and more often than not you're getting 30mbit
(this is with 4 out of 5 bars of coverage showing).
The GemTek router however is [censored], it won't allow you to set an IP address or the DHCP range, you can't change anything on it barring the Wireless SSID it really is a bad idea on their part. I get that they're trying to do plug in and go but really, its not good.
To be fair the Huawei I snagged doesn't allow you to do much more but you can at least set the LAN IP and change DHCP settings and firewall settings.
Neither will allow you to bridge them to a more worthy router.
Also the GemTek router pegs at 90-99% CPU utilisation when the WiFi is turned on and you're downloading something, so its majorly under spec'd for the job.
All in all from a tech point of view Relish are a real mixed bag, I just hope they pull their finger out and get things working properly for the more technical of us.
Finally their call centre seems to be offshore, which is fine, but it seems to also be a glorified messaging centre with messages getting relayed back to UK Broadband and then the call centre coming back to you, this is a horrible setup, I've given up with my queries due to it being like that.
Anyway will keep on at it.
