ISP Load Balancing – Multi WAN

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 .

Verify Your ISP Internet Speed

4gmark

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

also they have iPhone,andrio app

Iphone 5 Order online – Kuwait –

If you are looking to Order Iphone 5 , cant wait the availability in Kuwait stores . or think you will get it cheap

 

you can order it from apple UK online store http://store.apple.com/uk

you need to have UK shipping address service such as Aramex

 

notes you need to consider , Iphone 5 needs Nano chip . Wataniya and Viva announced it will be available but still Operator didnt got the chips and they didnt test it yet . so be patient

 

LTE : no Operator still have LTE service , keep in mind LTE has different frequencies as Band 3, 5 etc .. you need to choose the one fits with your Operator .

MOC still didnt agree on LTE Licenses for Operators so you might not enjoy the LTE Speed . in addition u might later to change your device to the model which support operator LTE frequency

i guess Model A1429 ( UK ) will works fine With Zain , for Viva might be Model A1428

recent note : Kuwait custom do not take charges for Iphone , so u need only to pay the delivery Price

 

additional thing , you might consider to buy the 30pin adapter since iphone 5 has different power adapter “lighting”  why ? cus you dont want to throw the old adapter you already have for Ipad,Iphone and Ipod . also the car adapter
