FreedomPop Global SIM, MiFi 5792

james lewisjames lewis Posts: 8FreedomPop Newbie
Need some help guys, It's a mifi2 device 'MiFi 5792' and get terrible pings/lag 400 ping at best, while 600-800 is common.
Dload speed can run from 2 mbps to 30 kbps and tends to run to low side.
I have tryed the update drivers feature but it never works. Signal str is 3-4 bars and network seem to be locked to HSPA PLUS. Is this normal for this device or should I try for a #rma?

    @James Lewis - whilst the MiFi2 is technically capable of LTE, the FP Global SIM it uses, is configured for a maximum of HSPA+ speeds & gives it a UK IP address, which is why pings will be in the region of 400ms+. So, what you're seeing is normal for the Global Hotspot/SIM service & is the tradeoff for getting free GSM data access in the States & other supported countries.

    However, the FP supplied MiFi2's appear to be unlocked, so if you have a SIM with a data plan for AT&T/T-Mobile/one of their MVNOs, then you may be able to pop that SIM in to the hotspot to get LTE speed/faster pings.
