Slow Internet Connection M5 MR5200 compared to iPhone

Hi,
I got a Nighthawk M5 (MR5200) and an iPhone. Both have a SIM Card from the same provider (Digicel) with the exact same subscription and having them next to each other, I get 8MB/s over the Wifi-Hotspot from my iPhone, but only 2MB/s over the M5!?

Any ideas what could make such a difference? In general I get always less throughput over the M5 compared to the personal hotspot on iPhone. 

What could i check / tweak to improve my data throughput over M5?

I'm currently surfing over Digicel in Antigua, West Indies. 

 

thanks for any input!

Erich

Please confirm you are using MR5200-100NAS device. Looks Digicel just support LTE bands for now? 

 

If you can provide the bands supported by Digicell, that will be helpful.

 

Thanks
