Hello,

my nearest eNB (base station) uses bands 1,3,7,20 and when I download something 4CA is being used for up to 30MB/s speed. However when the data load is lower, CA is no longer used and the primary band is randomly selected (usually 3 or 7).

My eNB doesn't support upload CA so the randomly selected primary band dictates upload speed.

Therefore I'd like the primary band to be always B1, which gives 6MB/s upload speed.

Could you add a setting to the firmware where you can choose the primary band that is being used when CA is not active? E.g. when manually selecting the bands under Network Setting → Broadband → Cellular Band → Band Management or under Cellular Lock(LTE).

Or can this be done with telnet?

Thank you!

    Thank you!

    Indeed, if you manually select B1,B3,B7,B20 under Band Management and then enter only B1 under Cellular Lock(LTE), it works!

    Just make sure your ISP's eNB isn't using energy saving feature by turning off one of the bands at night time…
