    Question Novatel T1114 slower than other devices on band 4?

    Is there a reasoning behind why T1114 apparently maxes out at (and usually below) 30mbps? It seems a lot of users have noticed this, is it due to lack of carrier aggregation perhaps?

    My 6620L could pull 60mbps and it had a weaker signal than what the T1114 receives, so an explanation would be nice from this wonderful community of geeks (no offense)

    30Mbps (3.7MBps) is about the highest i've seen on the T1114 too but as of now i've not been able to reach the same speeds with any other equipment I own 6620L, 4510L, galaxy note 3 & galaxy note 4. (Well not in the same location anyway) If I go outside and point the note 3 with a clear line of sight to the tower I seem to remember seeing something around 90Mbps (much higher than the T1114 anyhow)

    But I didn't really care too much about that as it was stable and faster than the 802.11G wireless that's still running on one end of the house anyway.

    It's the older hardware that's responsible. The T1114 dates back to 2013, which is positively ANCIENT with all the hardware improvements in the last 3 years. It's missing Band 2 and Band 5, it doesn't support Cat 6 speeds, and it may not be able to do Carrier Aggregation, either, even with Band 4 activated on it.

    But it IS a very reliable device, much more so than the AC791L Jetpack, which is VZW's only Cat 6 hotspot supporting all the bands and all the possible Carrier Aggregation configurations.

    New signature coming soon-ish...
