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 .



Zain Lte

ZAIN Kuwait has lunched it Lte Network “its wrong to say 4G” . LTe technology gives you a high speed compare to the regular 3G .. Lte can give you up to 100Mb download and 50Mb upload . with Lte+ theoretically it can  reach up to 1G . also the most important point which is good for gamers is the delay . Lte Delay is less than 50ms . Locally it can reach 20ms !! WOW


Zain offers the Lte via different device models ,currently there is ;

  • the USB : good for single Laptop and quit fast than the router 
  • the Router : Good for Sharing and it has a hub 4 ports
  • the MIFI : which is soon i guess by next week

the choice is yours , you can even check NEC routers model NEC has a router/MIFI with external adapter for better LTE coverage .

personally i tried the router , it is good but one note about it , it WIFI antenna is not dual streaming so WIFI speed is not that much fast . you will notice that when you connect your pc direct via the cable and try speed test via cable and wifi . you will notice the difference .

a good trick is . if you still having your ex DSL or Gw Router . connect it to Zain router , disable zain router WIFI and use your ex device WIFI .

Zain router support external LTE antenna . if you can get it Lte signal will be more good 🙂 .

Torrent Download is great

even youtube streaming

for itune movies download i didnt see much different .  i guess Zain will be working to improve that

you can check prices at zain web


Small Note ; if you are looking for Lte for Iphone you can reserve your iphone from Zain , but one note Lte enabling is controlled by Apple not Zain , begging of 2013 Apple will allow it .


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

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
