Jeremy Harpham on his 5G Three Mobile Broadband Trial
Finally my area got 5G broadband from Three. I can currently get around 240Mb down and 70Mb up on 4G. The Three offer was £21 p.m. for unlimited data, including the 5G hub over 24 mths. A no-quibble 14 day return was what convinced me to try.
My trial lasted 6 hours! Despite trying multiple but limited positions in my study for the router I just couldn't get a consistent connection. I need the router to connect with my wired network so could not try other rooms. The Three hub only supports 24 devices for wi-fi which is useless, but typical. Speed varied from 0Mb both up and down to 210Mb down and 40 up.
The up was more variable. Down varied between 40-300Mb. The inconsistency was the killer. I'll try again in a year's time perhaps!

Kev Wright on my Ookla Speed Test Question
I don’t exactly know how to put this into words (or if I am even right!) but I think your mobile internet speed is kinda fixed based on the mast you are on at the time and is variable by a lot of different conditions like distance, and other people on the same mast.
I don’t think changing the server (even if you could) would matter as that would be overridden by the mast situation. I think the idea of having the ability to change it in Ookla is simply to allow you to get a test result if the default server is down or flooded.
John Carson on Rifles feedback
Plugged in the Google TV thingie and it seems completely pointless when a person has a Roku. It has indeed got APV now, but nothing else that the Roku doesn’t do. I don’t get it. What’s the point? What are Google trying to attract people with?
