Hello. This is my first post.

I was wondering if anyone here has successfully used Telkom's unrestricted APN for gaming. I'm trying to get SWTOR (an MMO) running on my pc and I've opened the necessary ports on my router through port forwarding (they are open according to a port checking app I installed) but I still can't access the game servers. Could Telkom be blocking the servers or is the problem on my end?

Thanks.

I've used the unrestricted APN for both ESO, FFXIV, AoE 2, AoE3, and Valheim with no need for port forwarding.

Oh, add online Uno to the mix. Lockdown horror.

The Telkom Network does allow "Unrestricted" APN. just use the profile name unrestricted no username and password. just unrestricted for apn and apply reboot router Voilah you can now port forward.

What Device you using for Telkom LTE?

Does work. Only issue is higher latency on unrestricted. 20ms on internet apn and about 40ms on unrestricted apn (local ping test)

You need to keep connecting and disconnecting to get an IP from the same region.

I think the ip pools are getting finished and you get allocated an IP from any region available.

Can anyone confirm if the unrestricted APN works on any contract package or are some not allowed to use it?
