Fyve or Congstar: Discounter in the D-Net

D-networks do not have to be expensive: with Congstar (a Telekom subsidiary) and Fyve (a product of ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG), there are two low-cost providers that operate on the Telekom (Congstar) and Vodafone networks respectively. Fyve is a classic prepaid provider, whereas Congstar also offers postpaid contracts as well as DSL and VDSL. Both offer calls and SMS for 9 ...

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 ...

Telecom combines LTE and DSL

With the new "MagentaZuhause Hybrid" offer, Telekom is introducing a combination as DSL and LTE - the bandwidths are combined as required. The prerequisite is a VoIP connection from Telekom, via which voice telephony can then be handled in any case. The hybrid turbo always doubles the performance data of the underlying DSL connection: at 16 MBit/s there is ...

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 ...

Congstar and LTE: soon no longer possible?

Currently, reports are piling up that Congstar is moving to no longer tacitly allow LTE in its contract rates. This would mean that an exciting feature of the postpaid tariffs of the Telekom subsidiary would be lost. Although LTE was never part of Congstar's contract, it was still possible to use it with a postpaid contract within the specified speeds (7.2 Mbit/s) - handy when ...

Judgement against throttling of Telekom

After Telekom announced its intention to throttle DSL and VDSL connections from 2016 (Telekom brings throttling to the fixed network), there has now been a ruling, which was made by the Regional Court of Cologne and prohibits the throttling of Telekom, at least in the Call&Surf tariffs. The complaint had been filed by consumer protection groups in NRW, who want to ensure that "customers are not throttled over the entire ...

o² to congstar - my change

After I am increasingly dissatisfied with o² and congstar as a Telekom subsidiary operates in the D1 network (which is generally considered much more reliable) I dare my first provider change with number porting. Actually, this should work without problems, but so far I only have the confirmation from o² that my letter of cancellation has arrived. The prices are quite similar with congstar ...

Iphone 4 can be pre-ordered - T-Mobile surprises with customer interest

Apparently, T-Mobile was a bit surprised by the customer interest in the Iphone 4 - otherwise it can not be explained that the Bonn-based company has not provided more computing power on its own website. At times (especially in the morning) the site was hardly accessible today. The prices for the Iphone 4 are anything but cheap - ...
