This kind of service quality has been experienced with three different models of router from EE:

  1. The original, floor mounted 5G router,
  2. A replacement 4G router, and
  3. A replacement 5G router of the latest design

The same kind of results are experienced when connected with two different kinds of PC and two different models of iPhone.

Router (3) has been used for these tests, its location and device details are displayed below together with the signal strength being experienced.

It should be noted that these are spot tests that capture the service only at these moments. Performance varies considerably, all the time, sometimes stopping completely, giving the impression that packets are arriving in irregular bursts. The service now will not usually support a Zoom call.
