Hybrid LTE homebrew for more Internet speed: Speedify

Unlike the open source solution using OpenMPTCPRouter that I described in the last post, Speedify is a commercial solution based on a VPN client. The principle is the same: two lines are bundled, the data is routed via an endpoint and the speed is improved that way. Again, the setup is the same: a VDSL connection with 250 MBit/s and a ...

Hybrid LTE for more Internet speed: OpenMPTCProuter

With Hybrid LTE, Telekom offers a tariff that combines a DSL connection with data transmission via LTE. I wondered whether it would be possible to implement something like this myself and came across the openmptcprouter project. The idea here is to bundle multiple internet connections and increase bandwidth that way. In my setup there is one ...

Congstar to Telekom - why I switched

For many years I was satisfied with Congstar as a mobile provider, even if LTE was never officially available with Congstar. However, with the current Magenta 5.0 tariffs plus 10,-€ advantage Telekom got me. Until now, Congstar's 9 cent tariff (with LTE) was ideal for me: around 17,- EURO per month were available with 1 GB data volume (at 12,95 ...

Congstar LTE further restricted

It was previously possible to use the Telekom LTE network with a Congstar contract card - but this is being restricted in more and more tariffs. With the new tariffs, there is now faster 3G Internet, but still no LTE. Unlike the rest of the network operators (after the merger of o2 and Eplus only two competitors remain) denies ...

Congstar: Influence compression with Speed Manager

Congstar uses the T-Mobile network, so some functions are also available. One exciting one: the Speed Manager at http://speed.telekom.de (only works with a congstar or other SIM card in the T-Mobile network), which can be used to influence the image and HTML compression. By default, the on-the-fly compression of the code is selected, but not of the images. If you want faster data transfer without ...

LTE roaming in Europe also with Congstar

Telekom enables its customers to use LTE data networks in other European countries. This is also possible with Congstar, at least in Italy. If you have a Congstar tariff, which makes it possible to use the 4G network of Telekom in Germany, you can apparently also use the roaming offered by Telekom. The speed will be limited to the ...

As reported by teltarif.de, the LTE network of E-Plus can be used with the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C with the second iOS 8 beta. This was previously not possible due to a missing profile. E-Plus uses a 1,800 MHz LTE network, which is also used by Telekom. Technically, all iPhones from the 5 series onwards are thus able to ...
