Nona LTE usb really slow connectivity


#1

I am getting really slow network speed on LTE usb. It is connected to the Verizon network. Is there any speed throttling happening on the hologram side that I can change?

These are the speeds I am getting.

Any ideas?

Hey Omardude,

Cat-M1 speeds are slower than other connections by design (uplink and downlink speeds of 375 kbits/s in half duplex mode), so its best used for applications with low to medium data rate needs. The real advantage is lower power usage and module cost. On top of that this also depends on tower congestion and a few other factors that play into it.

With regards to throttling, Verizon has set a limit of 50MB/month on their Cat-M1 network, but that is an arbitrary number and Cat-M1 devices would be using less than that anyway.

Best,
Maiky
