I get adult filtering enabled with either APN. Also, I actually see 10ms _slower_ ping times on 3internet compared to three.co.uk

In reply to a post by gary333:
Do you know if the Mkrotik 4g kit happens to support carrier aggregation?


It does not, it has their own R11e LTE card installed, but this can be swapped out with a number of Sierra and Huawei LTE cards with do support CA

I've tested both official APNs. I see no difference in latency, speed-test throughput, nor any change in blocking behaviour. I've not studied the routing used.

The only difference I've noticed is many more dropped pings using three.co.uk. I've not noticed any problems with packet-loss in normal use, so I guess this is an ICMP deprioritising setting somewhere.

Three unlimited SIMO, replacing 3 km ADSL line.

I couldn't activate mine through the site so started a chat session to activate, they offered a free upgrade to unlimited data for 1 Month. This could be a standard offer, so well worth trying if looking for short-term data or doing loads of speed tests
