    Anyone on Djembey Mke using the MKE modem notice a lower signal since updating? I'm on EE in Southampton and I'm rarely on 1 bar maybe 2 max. Signal drops to E in my office now :( have checked with EE and no reported problems.

    I'm on EE using MKE firmware+modem
    I can't say I've noticed any difference, but let me know how you get on with MK8 modem. I'll give it a go if it's looking good.

    Much better on this. Now no drop out and stronger signal again. Happy days...

    Monkey see... monkey do! ;)

    It does seem to be a better signal, at my desk, on MK8, over MKE. Will need to test it further though. ;)

    For now, nice one Syd! :thumb:

    No difference for me at all. Still 0 bars and E when indoors. Probably the area though as a mate from london was down and his HTC had 1 to 0 bars in this workplace . Honestly EE has been getting worse. Probably time for a switch next year.

    Guy sat opposite us on his Lumia 700 on O2 had full signal. Irritating when a mast sits in the middle of our car park.

    After 4 days on the MK8 modem, I can honestly say that there is no difference, for me, to the MKE modem in the various locations I have tested it.

    You're not the only one having problems with EE in the UK and their signals as these two articles point out...

    EE Signal Problems: EE Have Cut Back Their 3G Network In The UK Now 4G Is Launched on PostDesk

    This one is a breakdown of a BBC Watchdog programme that lambasted EE for their signal problems...

    I trust this assessment is based on a thorough testing process........the landlord at the TZ must love new modem releases......

    As do the landlords of The Hunters, Kings Head and Red Lion! ;)

    (I always wondered how they could afford villas in Spain and Caribbean cruises. :smokingsomb:)
