Dialog New APN Settings for Android
Dialog announced a new APN setting for Android devices. According to the new settings the proxy setting is removed and the proxy address 192.168.122.2 is no more used.
Using the Dialog’s old proxy setting causes the Android device to use a single shared IP address to access the internet. Dialog detects the user agent of the device's browser and if it is detected as a mobile browser Dialog continues to serve the user through the shared IP. This usually lowers the data transfer speed. This incident occurs if a user used the Android’s default browser (Dialog considers Android’s default browser as a mobile browser). But a user can still escape this situation if he is using a different browser such as Firefox or any other installed in their device. Then the user is assigned a dedicated dynamic IP as given to unlimited mobile broadband users.
In order to avoid this situation and to experience high data transfer speeds, the user has to remove the proxy setting which Dialog uses to serve the mobile users. With the new settings Dialog simply ignores the user agent of the browser and serves same as serving to unlimited mobile broadband users through dialogbb APN.
