I'm on a $88 unlimited Smartone plan, it's limited to 2 Mbps but I have absolutely no problem watching YouTube in 480p.
If I wanted lower speed, I might have gone for a sub $100 and not complain. I am paying for a faster service so it’s normal to be disappointed.
EDIT: I think smartone also has better coverage now that I am researching.
THIS. For me it was all or nothing using HKBN on CMHK. Either it was acceptable slower than Smartone and 3 in terms of throughput with an initial higher lag of latency or it was completely unusable which I suspect was when from a network prioritization being pushed to the bottom and/or pushed onto 2G.
On another note, I looked at OpenSignal. They break maps into 4G and then 2G/3G. They don't breakdown 2G and 3G separately.
Can anyone confirm if CMHK is 2G/3G/4G or primarily 2G/4G?
"As of May 2018, CMHK provided network service 4.5G, 4G LTE (LTE FDD and TD-LTE), 3GHSPA, GPRS and EDGE."
Can you see opensignal maps on your computer? or are the maps only available on mobile now? Any alternatives? would make it easier to post.
Just an update, CMHK customer service is by far the best compared to my experience with 3HK and "PCCW". They followed up promptly and asked for me to continue using their service for a few more months while they improve the coverage around my area. If I still have issues after a few months, they agreed to void my contract.
Hope they can actually improve their coverage around here as I am happy with their customer services.
