Max possible OpenVPN Client speeds

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I am a mark V owner thinking of purchasing a TETRA. If I were to use it as a normal router with an OpenVPN tunnel (i.e. TETRA is the client) what kind of speeds can I expect to get? It seems most routers max out at ~ 20Mb/s. Am I correct in assuming TETRA will not be able to handle a 100Mb/s connection ?

I don't know about 100 Mb/s - I don't have the means to easily test that right now - but I will say I use a TETRA at home as my primary AP with a dedicated LTE modem and always-on OpenVPN connection and easily achieve 40 Mb/s throughput. The limitation is the LTE modem more than anything as taking the OpenVPN tunnel out of the equation doesn't increase speed coming from the LTE modem.
