Free 4G!!

Post by PalmTree » Sun Apr 03, 2016 8:54 am

Hey fellow Phreaks!
This Sunday, Telstra is offering unlimited 4G for its customers as compensation for service outages! I have been downloading liberally all at Telstra's expense!

Yeah I went out and bought the Huawei E5573 modem which was on special at Coles and the post office. It was Optus-branded but thankfully unlocked so I put a $2 Telstra SIM into it which worked automagically and just downloaded all day and night.

I got pretty shit speeds with it despite being a 700mhz (4GX) device. I think Telstra must throttle torrents or something.

I found that you need to port forward if DHT isnt doing too well with torrents
