+1 needed for clarification also.
Philippines carriers are a mess.

Just to add to the mix, the provider I use has 10+ APN's, and on any given
day, 1 or 2 of the APN's will be consistently faster than the other 8.

So Backhaul, Spectrum, APN are the factors where I cannot figure the
Industrial 4G/LTE router with Cat6 aggregation, and 3 or 4 out of 5 bars

Please never upgrade to the latest Windows 10 - You don’t need the hassle,
and I don’t need the work.
More seriously, the 6 months older Windows 10 releases are typically FAR
MORE stable - a simple RACS script can fix this - just ask :)
If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait
until you hire an amateur - Red Adair.
