- No NAT
- 4G LTE enabled as of end of January 2017
- More details and ordering on our website.
Data SIMs are provided on a full size SIM card with push out mini-SIM, and within that a push out micro-SIM. We also print the nano-SIM outline. Cutting the Data SIM down is easy but at your own risk (to SIM and mobile device), so we suggest doing so before you activate the Data SIM. Nano SIM cutters are available in the Internet but otherwise small straight bladed nail scissors work well.
The APN need not be set in the UK, if required then set to:
Username and password are not normally needed unless using as ADSL backup or with corporate L2TP relay (see below).
The IPv4 is allocated automatically. The legacy IP (i.e. our end of PPP link) is usually not meaningful and may show as 10.64.64.64. We can route blocks of IPv4s as well. Full 1500 byte MTU is supported.
The Data SIM only works on 3G or 4G LTE, and is using the Three network. Do check their web site for coverage details.
SIMs can take roughly 30 minutes to suspend or activate from the Control Panel.
