Simple use 🎚
After initial setup, the app automatically connects to the best network and chooses independently between LTE and Deutsche Telekom HotSpots. You can determine easily in the settings whether the app should optimize with regard to data volume or speed.
To protect your personal data, CONNECT App allows you to enable a VPN tunnel when using unencrypted public Wi-Fi networks. This ensures ideal security at all times and lets you enjoy your flatrate with no worries at all.
Data consumption ⛽
With the "Prefer Wi-Fi" option, the CONNECT App optimizes your data connection to use up as little data as possible via LTE. This saves your mobile data volume and ultimately saves you money, too 💰.
With the "Best Connection" option, the CONNECT App optimizes your data connection for optimum speed. This means you can always surf in the mobile Internet with the best connection.
Important: With Magenta / Telekom tariffs without a HotSpot flatrate, the automatic login function may incur additional costs. More information about this is available at www.hotspot.de. You need a Telekom / Magenta mobile phone or fixed-line contract in order to use the app. You can also use the app with the WLAN TO GO function.
