Hey guys!

I use a 4G LTE home broadband connection. My ISP uses LTE CAT 4 (150 Mbps down / 50 Mbps up) over LTE Band 3 (FDD). I also have my cell phone plan with the same ISP. Both my iPhone & Huawei 4G LTE home broadband router receive the exact same signal.

However, my ISP caps my home broadband connection speed to a maximum of 90 Mbps down / 10 Mbps up despite claiming that there are no limits/restrictions on the connection speed - the package is advertised as 'Max 4G speed'. I confirmed with customer support that 90/10 are indeed the limits imposed.

On the other hand, speed tests on my iPhone's LTE connection show that speeds of up to 145 Mbps down / 40 Mbps up are actually possible, especially during off-peak hours. Once again, both my iPhone & home router receive the exact same signal, and I conduct the speed tests on both devices from the exact same spot at my place to ensure consistency.

My question is: Is there a way (hack/workaround) for me to remove these speed restrictions imposed by my ISP? If so, how?
