I am sorry your experience has not reached to understanding that data communication speed is measured in megabits per second and most users expect better than 2 million bits per second throughput.
I have to disappoint you - I do understand megabits per second and their abbreviation Mbps. But I do not know what your repeatedly used Mps+ means!!!
I accept it may be a problem with my three devices as it appears to be a timeout problem, but I have difficulty accepting that all three could have the same failing as I can find no setting appropriate. Windows 10 has all updates done and has had the OS completely reloaded on my phone twice, on my tablet twice and on my laptop twice in an attempt to tidy up my systems and I have been a consistent user of CCleaner on both my tablet and laptop. Just today I experienced 4 dropouts on Telstra Air and requiring multiple restarts to achieve a reconnection. The Telstra Air connection I have easy access to, is a neighbours WIFI gateway that is less than ten metres from my desk and it is in turn ADSL connected to an NBN fibre node via less than 500metres of copper. I do experience dropouts on my phone hotspot also and rarely see faster than 2 meg throughput on it either, yet I have line of sight to the Telstra mobile tower under 2km away. I have just accepted a slow network as I travel widely in a motorhome and my emails are handled by client software masking the speed issue for emails and browsing is not a big part of my computing usage.
Predictive typing are its worst maybe?
@Kevin_Hutch, from your description, it's not a problem with the Telstra system that you're experiencing but a problem with your device.
With the problem that you are experiencing, it sounds like the OS needs reloading. It's not working the way it should based on your description.
You both have gone way off the topic I posted on. Why not start a new thread? I have no issues with my Lumia 640 LTE both on WiFi or mobile date through Telstra.
My issue is that WIN 10 uses the app approach, with tiles, in line with current trends, but the WIN app store is not producing the Apps we need, Telstra being one of them. Smart companies like bank of Queensland & ANZ allow their website to reduce down, like an app, so it it suitable for use on a WIN mobile device. One would have thought Telstra could use this approach? Companies like Ridges hotels make apps for the other 2 operating systems but also allow you to download a barcode with all your check-in details on it which overs the main points of the app. What we need from companies is a bit of imagination as Windows is the main O/S being used around the world.
Your slow speed on your neighbours VDSL connection is due to Telstra only allowing you to use a maximum of 10% of the available bandwidth. I have an FTTN connection which is capable of 40 Mbps but if I connect to the modem using Telstra air the speed is limited to 3 Mbps.
The Lumina 640 works on all the Telstra 3G and 4G frequencies, on my Lumina 640 which I no longer use there used to be no problem with speed on the Telstra cellular network. It used to be faster than my then ADSL connection. So your low speed might be due to congestion on the radio tower.
There might of been a case for Telstra developing apps for Windows mobile devices in fact then I advocated that Telstra developed a Telstra app but few people use Windows mobile devices to day that the cost of developing an app is not justified. I do agree with you that developing a Telstra Air for Windows PC would be justified as there are growing number of people using Windows portable devices.
