Cell C LTE is it on or is it off?

Vodacom & MTN might lock their routers to their networks, but certainly from the past, Telkom never locked the Huawei ones they sold (like the B525).

What they did with that particular router was load their own software so that it always showed a full 5 bars signal strength.

When Huawei pushed through a significant update (change to the User Interface as well), that also did away with Telkom's signal lock, so now it displays the true strength.

As for Cell C, I wouldn't ever rely on them as a sole or primary LTE provider.
