Are you looking for the Axxess Telkom LTE APN settings? We have been getting enquiries about this from some of our readers. Axxess is a fast growing ISP in South Africa, offering products ranging from fibre to fixed LTE and ADSL. If you have signed up for their Telkom LTE, you will be looking for the APN to get your router up and running. That’s not necessary if you have bought a router as part of the deal.

Those are the Axxess Telkom LTE APN settings. But how do you configure these. Remember that there are many router makes and models in use across South Africa.

- Press enter and on the next page, click on Settings.
- Next, click on Dial-up.
- Now click on Profile Management.
- Next, click on New profile.
- Enter the above details.
- Select the new profile.
- Click Save and Apply.
- Restart your router and connect to the internet.
What are APN settings?
Without the correct APN settings, your router won’t be able to connect to the internet. That’s why you need the Axxess LTE APN settings for Telkom. APN stands for Access Point Name. It’s the name of the gateway through which your device gets connectivity.
If you have gotten your router from Axxess, you won’t have to worry about APN settings. However, if you have just bought the SIM only, this is something that you will have to do. Without the correct APN profile, you will not be able to start using the internet.

After your internet is up and running, you will want to test it’s speed to see whether or not it’s living up to it’s billing. You can use the SA Broadband Speed Test for that. Those that have questions or comments can post them on our Telkom forum.
