How to set up “unrestricted” APN on Telkom LTE / 3G

  1. The first step is to log in to your Telkom Router: http://192.168.8.1 (or your router IP address if using a custom router)
  2. Go to “Settings > Dial-up”
  3. And then “Profile Management”
  4. The old profile name will be TelkomSA and will be set as the default. You then need to create a new profile with the following details:
    Profile name: unrestricted
    IP type: IPv4
    APN: unrestricted
    And then leave the rest of the fields blank.
  5. Save and set the new “Unrestricted APN” profile as your default profile. The noticeable change when connecting to the internet is your our IP address will change from 197.x.x.x to 41.x.x.x
