We live between Baybay and Ormoc City on Leyte, a strech with no 4G Globe coverage. I use a hi-gain antenna and draw a -70dbi 3G signal from Baybay. Down load speeds vary grately, but can reach as high as 5mbps.

I am shopping for better equipment. On order is a + 24 dbi parabolic antenna. Selecting a modem router is difficult. It would be so helpful to know exactly which frequenc band are used in this area by Globe.

If you have a recomendation, then share it with me. I want cat 20 architecture and at least 802.11ac wifi. Of course the modem must take a sim and connect a mimo antenna.

It would be nice to buy a modem seperate from the wifi router. Just cannot find what I want.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
