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 ...

Telekom MagentaEINS Plus: All-round package with 1-month notice period

Anyone who has already taken out a Deutsche Telekom DSL contract and also wants to be mobile on the Deutsche Telekom network can, under certain conditions, get "MagentaEINS Plus" in two expansion stages. A key advantage: a contract term of only 1 month with a notice period of 4 weeks. Even if the previously used contract still has a longer term, this "disappears" - in my case was ...

Deutsche Telekom launches Super-Vectoring

So far, the VDSL speed ends at 100 MBit/s download and 40 MBit/s upload. At least the download rate Telekom wants to increase from 01 August. 250 MBit/s download rate and still 40 Mbit/s upload will be possible in the new MagentaZuhause-XL tariffs. The prerequisite is a current router, e.g. the Fritz!Box 7590 is suitable for the new technology. …

Apparently working access data of Telekom customers is floating around on the darknet. The Bonn-based company is calling on customers to change their passwords, but denies a server hack.

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 ...

Fax via VoIP & VDSL: Cisco SPA112 to Fritz!Box 7490

Anyone who wants to operate a hardware fax on a VoIP connection must either connect this directly to the Fritz!Box or use an adapter such as the Cisco SPA112. Operating an analog fax machine is not necessarily easy for customers with an "All-IP" connection (or whatever the respective provider calls the product). Analogue devices can be connected to the Fritz!Box ...

Law against router compulsion is to come

Currently important for many Internet users: the German government has presented a draft law against router coercion. Core element: the definition of a passive network termination point. This would first of all stipulate that no "active" device - for example a router - represents the transition between the provider's network and the customer. For Telekom customers, this is not so unusual, here there are ...
