I just test the speed of my Fido LTE network using an app called speedtest.
The download speed is like 10Mbps and upload speed is like 17Mbps.
Is it normal? other courier's LTE seems like much more faster. 10Mbps is more like WCDMA speed.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you ever considered reporting this on our App ? Simply log in to My Account then click on your phone number, then at the bottom on Network Aid. You can also do it right here .
It's a great way to keep us in the loop when you are experiencing Network issues that are intermittent.
Hope this helps!
Its nice that a fido rep has commented on this thread twice with the same " you cant prove me wrong and im not about to offer any useful feedback" ...
I assume you're referring to my earlier posts (there weren't any others who posted more than once since your post). Firstly, I do not work for, nor do I represent Fido.
I posted information regarding a likely possibility you're getting the speeds you're getting. You chose not to believe that explanation. Fair enough. But that doesn't mean the information I posted was not a contributing factor -- whether you believe it or not.
...there really shouldnt be any weak signal spots in the GTA, an area with 5 million people in a small geographical centre....
That right there, is a fundamental limitation of cellular data -- for all mobile networks. There is a finite amount of bandwidth for any given location. The more people within that location, the more that bandwidth needs to be shared. Add to that, the changing use of mobile data. More and more people are using their devices to stream music or video. The increased data requirement of streaming services only adds to the network congestion.
When would one likely see a decrease in speed? After work or school and evenings, when more people are using the networks.
Yes, it affects everyone in large urban areas -- regardless of provider. Along with the many other factors that affect speed, that's why none of the mobile providers can guarantee speed. If any, they only provide theoretical or peak speeds.
