Fleet One Background IP Speeds

Access the new Background IP Quality of Service (QoS):

To access this new QoS, the following two things must occur Firstly upgrade the Firmware on the Terminal: If the firmware is not upgraded, the terminal will continue to limit the user’s speed to 104kbps even if the SIM is provisioned up to 152kbps. Secondly set the QoS to Background 152kbps in SCNG: For New Fleet One Customers: Fleet One SIMs are now provisioned with a QoS of Background up to 152kbps by default. For Existing Fleet One Customers: Please contact us to apply to upgrade your active Fleet One SIM to reach Background IP speeds up to 152kbps.
