Carrier firmware vs no-carrier

Apprentice

Could someone explain what are the differences between a carrier and a clean ROM on a factory unlocked phone?

 

I've got a non-branded Note9 using a Three SIM (UK) and I've been thinking about flashing it into the carrier firmware.

 

Are there any pros or cons? Any signal improvements or so?

 

Tks!

Sometimes a certain network feature will only work with carrier firmware.

 

That said a person does take a risk when installing a custom rom.

Is there any impact on the network signal or internet speed?

None at all as far as I'm aware.

 

Unless a network throttles network speeds for infringing their fair usage policy if they have one. 

 

Usually its mast issues or mast congestion that affects speeds .
