Another True step to full 4G access

New from True, the IoT Router WiFi is a multifunction router that can serve as 4G modem and provide a convenient Internet joining wherever there is no line-based serve.
The router has a full-sized SIM slot for plugging in a 4G SIM card. It ’ s office cord plugs into the wall. It handily shares your Internet connection with your calculator, notebook or tablet.
Since most 4G SIM cards are now in nano SIM form, you might need to use a nano-to-full-sized SIM adapter. Otherwise contact your mobile-phone operator to change the nano SIM back to the full-sized SIM.
The router is useful for a mobile coffee truck or condominium or if you live in a outback sphere where there ’ s a solid adequate 4G signal but no line Internet service such as True Online ’ s FTTX service.
Once the router is on-line with your mobile-phone overhaul, you can connect the LAN cables to the four ports at the back of the router. No further frame-up is needed. The LAN connection mechanically shares out the Internet.
To use this as a WiFi router, though, you need to set up its SSID ( Service Set Identifier ) – giving the name of your WiFi router and a password. frame-up can be done easily by using a Web browser and type in the IP address of the router ( 192.168.0.1 ). A Web-based administrator ’ s page will appear where you can change the SSID and password from those set at the factory.
You can besides use the admin page to send and read SMS messages from the SIM.
The router has two call ports for connecting to telephones and making calls.
The router supports 4G LTE FDD at 900, 1,800 and 2,100MHz, and 3G UMTS at 850, 900, 1900 and 2100MHz.
Peak 4G download accelerate is 150Mbps and peak upload speed 50Mbps. But the real speeds will vary depending on location and how many 4G users are sharing at any given time.
I tested the router on TrueMove H ’ mho LTE network at a Bangkok condominium at eminent noon and measured the association rush. I found that the router achieved a download rush of 15.71Mbps and upload speed of 18Mbps.
The router can partake an Internet association to multiple devices because it supports WiFI 2×2 MIMO ( multiple-input, multiple-output ) protocol and uses WiFi 802.11n protocol at 2.4GHz.
One of the router ’ s four LAN ports can function as a WAN ( wide area network ) – a port that receives the Internet connection from an Internet modem/router such as the matchless that comes with True Online ’ s FTTX servicing.
I connected the router to an FTTX modem/router and shared the Internet with ease.
The True IoT router can besides function as a radio receiver repeater for your current router, extending its WiFi range.
Since the router can work for both FTTX and TrueMove H 4G, it ’ s a good choice for a new convergence package from True Online, which costs Bt799 a month.
That price includes True Super Fibre ( FTTX ) service at 50/20Mbps, TrueMove H ’ s outright 4G data at 4Mbps, unblock WiFi at True hotspots around the state, a TrueVisions Enjoy HD box, TrueID app and TrueU ’ south Red Card. Plus, you get a true wire-based telephone with 50 minutes of call time every calendar month.
The True IoT Router WiFi is now available for Bt1,490, discounted from Bt3,900. You have to sign a 12-month compress for either the True IoT Pack ( Bt399 per calendar month ) or 4G IoT Shared Package ( Bt599 ).
An excess advance requital of Bt500 is required and will be used to reduce the monthly payment of Bt100 a calendar month for five months .
