    Dont you wish they'd offer an uncapped anytime package.I would gladly pay top dollar for a month to month contract with them.

    Thanks for the info Much Appreciated

    You saying "service has declined since inception" is it location dependent or due more users on the Network

    What would you recommend for peak hours set a limit or not ?

    I've used mine at home and at work and my wife uses her one at her office and speeds are not as great as they were initially at all locations. I've got uncapped adsl at home so I have no peak data requirements at all.

    Might be using "internet" as the APN. Ensure that it's the following:

    Username: rain
    APN: rain

    Not actually sure, best to check if the Rain LTE product also works on those APN settings as well.

    The Huawei E5573 is a good bet. Throughput is not as great as a fixed router though.
