I am new in the Hologram community and I have a Hologram Industrial SIM with the Makers plan. I am making some test to validate whether using hologram would work to send some data of some air quality stations packs.
To upload the data I mainly use HTTP protocol and the hardware is a Raspberry Pi with Waveshare SIM 7000E pHat. It supports 2G as well as NB-IoT, eMTC and LTE Cat-M1 technologies.
However, the data upload/download speeds I get are very slow:
Download: 0.11 Mbit/s
Upload: 0.22 Mbit/s
The carrier I am registered in is “Hologram Orange”, here you have more information if useful:
+COPS: (2,“Orange”,“Orange”,“21403”,0),(1,“214 03”,“214 03”)
+COPS: 0,0,“Orange Hologram”,0
What I need to know is if it’s feasible to achieve faster download/upload speeds using the Waveshare and Hologram platform.
I have read in some other posts that the LTE Cat-M1 is not fully spread in Spain, so that might be a possible reason.
Thanks in advance.
