RSRP, SINR and every other acronym inbetween!

Hi

Some history, live in a valley and did have the shameful 3 as my provider. Speeds were okay during the day and dropped to 3Mbps during evening prime time. 

 

Moved to ee yesterday and trying to get my externial omni directional aerial in the right place.  Although omni directional I feel that the back of it is more restrictive due to the fitting plate. 

 

The aerial is on a 6m mast as this was my problem solving with 3. Now I am trying to get the mast lower to avoid finding it in my neighbour's house.

Please comment on above- do I need the 6m for stability of signal?

 

If so I am up that aerial with some guy lines!

RSRQ and SINR are the main features to care about and they're not decisively different at 4.5m than 6m.

Hi @newbuilder,

 

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂

 

The performance of your external antenna would depend on the location of your nearest mast in relation to your property and the other environmental factors.

 

It would be a case of testing your connection once you have moved the antenna to your preferred location.

 

Thanks

 

James
