TX power: -5dBm has been giving me download speeds of 1.4 and upload of 1.3

When i began using the device earlier this week my speeds were at around 5/1

From what i can tell i have a great signal so my speeds should be much higher

Any idea if there is an outage in Sydney? Its been abysmally slow since thursday

Hi Matt, yes you have a good signal, but it might be too good that it is too strong and the signal may be becoming distorted.

Your CINR: 38.52/33.38(R3/R1)dB should be no greater than 30 dB.
So what you need to do is to reduce the CINR-R3 to around 30dB or just less, whilst keeping the gap of the R1 to around 4 or 5. Just micro-rotations may do that whilst monitoring or to try a different location for the modem.
