1.Why then such devices, if you can get a faster internet connection from an ordinary phone?
2. So I understand, it is not possible to unlock a faster connection from this device and you have to pay as much as 400 euros to achieve the speed that the phone also gives?
3. And how does it relate to much cheaper devices through which the internet works on a sim card and the speed is around 100 Mb / s?
Today I connected this device for the first time since purchase using an Ethernet cable with a laptop, thinking that since I received answers that the iPhone works better and supports higher speeds…
Unfortunately, there is no improvement with the Ethernet cable. Same. Max.~20Mbps.
I’ve already found similar topics on this forum, people had the same problem, but from what I’ve read, there’s not a single specific answer on how to solve the problem with this device blocking the internet data transfer speed.
If something doesn’t work well, then you try one thing after another until you find where the issue is
One elementary, basic check is to change the IMEI to match your phone’s IMEI and also change the TTL to 65
If you don’t know how, search on the forum on how to do it
Another thing, I don’t have iPhone but on Android there are few apps to see on which bands your phone is connected
Check to see if there are in Apps Store the following apps: ‘Netmonitor’ by parizene and ‘NetMonster’ by Michal Mrocek. If there are download them. There are very useful in order to understand the mobile carrier’s signal at your location
It all depends on device’s capabilities. As I already said, Puli is Cat 6, but any iPhone since 6s (2015?) has higher Cat so will probably provide faster connection. Modern phones aren’t ordinary in this regard. They have sophisticated modems and antenna arrays. Also they cost often more than Puli.
As far as I know advanced LTE and 5G modems are expensive. There’s also the second hand market full of slightly slower devices (lower Cat rating).
Which ones exactly?
Of course there’s a possibility that you’ve got a dud, configuration is messed and other factors. Yet the hardware capability gap is the only thing that can be inferred from the information you’re shared so far. Comparing Puli to an iPhone is like comparing apples to oranges.
Thanks for your help, but there is nothing specific about these topics. There should be instructions on how to configure it. In the case of other routers, you insert a sim card and everything works fine, here you have to gymnastics.
The next step would be to check on which LTE / 4G band(s) do your phone and tablet use to connect to the mobile carrier (there should be in the Apps Store, few apps that have been downloaded more than 1 Million times for this)
After you find the bands used by your phone/ tablet - you compare it with your Puli router
Your iPhone/iPad most likely has a much higher cat rated modem, which means that data is delivered over more band frequencies at the same time, which results in higher speeds.
In real world usage your puli with a cat 6 modem (2x2 Mimo cellular) can score about 100-150 Mbps max. Depending on your mobile network cell, the actual numbers of users using data in your cell, the used frequencies and distance to the networks cellular antennas (and obstacles in the way), everything from 20-50 Mbps with a cat 6 modem is good.
If you want to have higher speeds with the modem, you need to invest in a better modem/router. Gl.inet has only two routers atm which support faster speeds (spitz AX - X3000 without a battery and puli AX - XE3000 with built in battery). Both routers will no significantly bigger and heavier than your puli router, but will deliver faster speeds.
