I found out just yesterday that Netflix doesn't allow quality selection and auto selects based on Line speed - so now when I do get decent internet, I am going to have to use QoS to fucking restrict Netlix just so it doesn't stream past 720p
Netflix actually does allow quality selction. For those that want to change it..

Log into Netflix on your browser
Select user
Go to Account (top right, drop down next to profile pic)
Select Playback Settings under My Profile
Select one of the following
- Auto
- Low (Up to 300mb/hour)
- Medium (up to 700mb/hour)
- High (up to 3Gb/hour)

Yeah I realised this.

Last thing that would be super helpful confirmation is whether you can set the quality per specific profiles (the people who use your account on Netflix) or if it's just limited to each account.

Reason I ask is because we are currently using a friend's Netflix account and hoping I can set just our profile under their account to 480p/720p?

I'm with Axxess and it's also Month to Month, I'm on a 50GB LTE Package and it's fairly good for Online gaming and the speed is decent. I'm not really having much issues. You get your odd lag spikes, but it's still better than signing yourself up on a 2 Year contract and hating every bit off it.

For gaming my comparison is I found much better performance running my LTE with a Huawei B525 or Huawei B618

So I've now got the following packages running on LTE now

1. Rain - ya know (no failover)

2 Webafrica - Fixed LTE Telkom Uncapped (failover 3G, works without any LTE coverage on Telkom 3G coverage)

3 Supersonic - Fixed MTN LTE (failover 3G pending full terms)

4. Axxess - Telkom's latest sim only deals 220+220 (Webafrica also offers it, failover 3G)

5. Vodacom Business LTE Fixed. Cheapest by far and they install within this week.

6. Openweb??

Anyone have any experience with Openweb LTE packages.

I see they have an Uncapped LTE package @R1499 and they provide higher speeds and a higher FUP.
Up to 12Mbps until 200GB, then up to 6Mbps until 350GB, then up to 3Mbps for the rest of the month

Although I have coverage LTE-A on Telkom, MTN and Vodacom they said they don't have coverage for me.

Who is their provider and does anyone have an Openweb LTE Package?

Speed average tests of 1 hour intervals (Upington Northern Cape)

1. 22down 18up
2. 10down 10up
3. 34down 12up
4. 78down 33up
5. 34down 22up
6. ?

My point is the speeds are location dependant of course.

But my ping on each network was better with nothing older than the B525.

B315 is not recommended for online gaming on LTE

I use B315 with no issues.

I think maybe it's poor if you have multiple people. This is more a bandwidth issue because the modem can only go as high as 80mbps which is slower than a B618 or B525. (Believe me, I've had this twice and consistently).
Also did you use the antennas on the B315 when gaming?
I have them on all the time.
