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

Advanced_Router_Device_Site

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 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
