Advice wanted please – Axartel WiMAX Internet
Hi everyone. Has anyone got any experience of using Axartel’s WiMAX internet service and could give me some feedback? I live in the campo near Torrox Pueblo and cannot get a telephone line or fibre so I need an alternative. I currently use 4G but it has a low data cap so I want to swap.
People seem to think Axartel are a good company, but I’m worried about the quality of internet. Is the speed anything like advertised (I can only get the lowest speed of 6mbs) and does it drop out if the weather is bad or there are lots of people online? I would be grateful for any advice or information. The router they provide is a Nucom NJ3R.
Thanks also to Naythan for the ongoing Digamextra service.
Many thanks, Nick
