    AT&T Hotspot Why Slow

    If I recall correctly, the Carrier Aggregation on that iPhone uses more bands than the Netgear 815S and, as a result, may allow faster speeds than the 815S.

    Even though the video below focuses on Verizon devices, the basics are the same.

    i have the same hotspot and yes its slow, in my area theres only 2xCA vs 3xCA and this thing LOVES to lock on band 2 which is really slow....ATT as to much control over the hotspot so its going run like crap

    im still looking for a replacement but not really sure what to get

    Yup, same issue on my Nighthawk M1 MR1100. My iPhone XSM runs circles around it when signal strength is high. Nighthawk has better RF sensitivity in low signal areas though.

    I suspect AT&T does this on purpose. The Nighthawk works so much better in AUS and EUS than it does in the USA. The FCC approvals are weird, too. I don’t think it’s even approved for QAM 64 or 256.
