Loading...loading again!

Hello again!
My life is not going as I dreamed and hoped of. I have not find a job and my money is all gone so end of the year (or beginning of 2015) I will be moving back to my mothers house if things will not change dramatically. This sucks because I feel that this will create stress for my mother and stepfather. I will be alright or atleast I hope so.

"What about your own space and stuff?" To me it really is no problem, I need place to computer (still laptop huoh), xbox 360, tv, clothes some books and games. I have lots of books to be honest but if I pack them right they will survive and my dad has promised to semi warm place to hold them and my other stuff. Own space...well there is not much need for it, I don't date at moment and there is door that opens and closes as I please! Alone in own place do get lonely to be honest. My record of not speaking anyone is 2 weeks!

There will be one problem though the internet! 

I have slow connection in my parents’ house, only way to get guaranteed internet is ADSL (old slow copper cables) and only from one provider! They are working on optical fiber connections but there is NO idea when they will get to area where our house is and it will cost +1000€ to get to the line when they do. They are working now in some areas in centrals of two villages and we live 8km away of one of them it middle of nothing.

Right now they deliver 3 speed options:

  • Fast (1,5/0,75 Mbit/s) for 21,20€/month
  • Faster (3/075 Mbit/s) for 34,30€/month
  • Fastest (8/1 Mbit/s) for 39,90€/month 
Notice that these are promised speeds not the real ones! You can crank speed up for free but getting it back down is 36€. Dropping service altogether is free but reconnecting is again 36€ but this unlike speed will take about week or so.

There is mobile internet possibility and here in Finland we have no data limits! Provider that we use on our phones promises that our house is on area where there should be 4G LTE that can carry max 50Mbit/s and 3G max 21Mbit/s. 4G would be 19,80€ and 3G 14,90€ per month and those are full prices! And when putting Huawei B593 4G router in package 9€/month for 24 months it would mean 23,90€ per month + 3,90€ starting cost. Problem with this is that there is some problems with signals, there are specific place in the house that you can get signal at all to make phone call!

Usual speed change range in different networks by mobile provider:
  • 3G > 0,4-15 Mbit/s
  • Dual Carrier > 0,4-25 Mbit/s
  • 4G LTE > 5-40 Mbit/s
Mobile network provider speed map.
Did remove some location information you will not need :D
Seriously you will not need them! Road number is only
thing you will get.
With mobile internet there is way to use our existing TW-EAV510 modem/router but then we have to buy 4G modem stick that will support LTE and work with our router. From TeleWell they say that following devices will work on 3G/4G/LTE speeds with TW-EAV510

  • TW-LTE 4G/3G
  • TW-LTE 4G/3G+
  • E 392
  • E 3276
  • E 3372
  • E 5776S


There is TW-LTE 4G/3G that cost 89€ in Gigantti but there is only one piece other side of Finland and there is no more in central warehouse. In Jimms (Finnish electronic store) price is 119,90€ and this particular model delivery time is not confirmed, They do other hand  have TW-LTE 4G/3G+ model same 119,90€ with 2-4 day shipping time that would work as well with our router on LTE speed.

From internet provider there are options as well. To my interest did catch one modem/router and one 4G stick. There is options to buy it once over deal or on monthly contract (12/24/36 months).

Router/modem Huawei B593 4G/WLAN

  • once 216€
  • 12 month 18€/m
  • 24 month 9€/m
  • 36 month 6€/m
4G stick Huawei E3372

  • once 126€
  • 12 month 10,50€/m
  • 24 month 5,25€/m
  • 36 month 3,50€/m
Now I just need to find out if there is possibility to have E3372 and that 4G to test run. There is danger that it will not work but that would be same price than ADSL but faster. Of course I have to talk with my mother about this as well, right now she is person of paying this stuff.

You may understand that watching stuff from internet or playing online is little painful at a moment. It is nice if speed do clime to that 1MB but that is not too common, If mobile internet will be stable it will boost speeds really up! Even 2G is max 200 kbit/s...that i around what we get right now!
When getting home I will do speed test by wireless connection and post that picture in HERE

Our The Minister of Education, Science and Communications has spoken that everyone in Finland should be able to get 10Mb connection... now promised speed is 1MB but even that is not happening on most places so that up to 10Mb damn. I would not mind but how this is again tested and guaranteed is unknown. In theory my mothers house could get 100Mb by 4G super mobile(19,90€/m for 12m and after that 29,80€/m) but how often you will get that...not so much.
