My LTE speeds are fine, my hotspot has ample data for the month, but as soon as I login to my corporate VPN (which I have to do to access internal networks), my speed drop to Kbps levels. Here are the stats I’ve tested many times, switching back and forth multiple times:
- Fine : Home network (AT&T Uverse), NO VPN connection = ~20-30 Mbps download speed
- Fine : Home network (AT&T UVerse), WITH VPN connection = ~20-30 Mbps
- Fine : T-Mobile Hotspot, NO VPN connection = ~20-30 Mbps
- Horrible : T-Mobile Hotspot, WITH VPN connection = ~300-600 Kbps
I absolutely have to have faster VPN capability through hotspot (traveling, not always on home network). How can I fix this?
Here are my phone details and the VPN I’m using, but notice that both work fine independently, just not VPN with T-Mobile Hotspot.
Phone : LG V30, 20GB High-speed hotspot data per month
VPN : AnyConnect
I hear rumors that T-mobile throttles VPN’s to prevent getting around hotspot levels. I’m not trying to do that, and pay for the necessary Hotspot levels needed. How can I get my paid-for hotspot speeds while VPNing into my corporate network?
