I recently installed the EG25-G modem in my MUDI. I am unable to get speeds over 5Mbps with this new modem using my Google Fi sim, which is activated and was able to get 40+ with the EC25-AF modem installed. Has anyone else been able to acheive better speeds with this modem? Is a firmware update required possibly? It appears the download and upload are being capped at 5Mbps based off of the serving cell information.
I’m not really quite sure what to troubleshoot in order to achieve better speeds.
According to FrequencyCheck, Google Fi uses bands 2/4/12/25/26/41 for LTE connectivity.
Out of these bands, the EG25-G actually supports more than the EC25-AF, so it would make logical sense that the former has higher bandwidth available.
However, if you check the site I linked, it does note that you need to register the device to Google Fi to use it. Since swapping the GSM modem changes the IMEI of the device, is it possible that you didn’t register it, thus are getting considerably reduced speeds not on your end, but on Google’s end?
