Ya sometime we are looking for High speed . LTE ? DSL etc … each has technology has it own limitation . and sometime you would like to load balance your traffic between multiple ISP ! .
DSL good for gaming , but bandwidth limitation ! . LTE might give you good bandwidth but with latency ( not suitable for gaming ).
what about if you would like doubling your bandwidth . ya might work
now there are many affordable multi wan or Gateway load balancing routers . yes they become cheap and really provide advance features .
you can utilize those boxes to expand your bandwidth , or choose which apps/server utilize which ISP . the beauty also some provide you with statistics that if you run this app let say youtube it will be much faster in ISP 1 , more than ISP 2 . having latency monitor + bandwidth gauges
I would recommend peplink – nice product and it do the job . you can order it from amazon or any online shop . link here
if you want a simple and cost effective one . you could also consider TP-Link gateway LB . its available in Kuwait from Burhain Tech in Huawei .
Huawei released its new router which is cat11 . with download speed up to 600 MBit/s in the downlink and 50 MBit/s in the uplink. 4 × 4 MIMO which is really interesting .
cat11 means triple aggregation . better than cat6 which is two ..
there is one catch here you need to watch your Operator does it support it or not . also if you have cat6 with lower speed don’t expect with cat11 you will get higher since the operator network might be congested .
so be careful from some operators saying getting this router you will get higher speed . don’t be foil for commercial stuff 🙂
For Most speedtest.net is the usual site to verify ISP/Telco speed. how accurate is it I’m not sure .but I’m sure of one thing . when you are running a speedtest you run it against your provider ! so in this case you measure the speed to your provider network ! not the external internet speed ! .
what is the catch . some providers give speedtest ( the local hosted one ) more priority so when you perform a test you will always get higher speed ! . but when trying to browse the internet you will feel it slow .
some providers throttle Torrent and other kind of apps which we can speak about later .
there is a new site that measure the speed and experience in different way which personally I like . they don’t download a file or do ping only . they perform multiple tests such as running youtube in different quality ( SD,HD) . in addition they started to give ranking to providers in Kuwait for example
they are not the best but they are very cool . try them and tell me what do you think 🙂 . link below
