I have both DSL and also LTE. For LTE, I have a TD-LTE Outdoor modem or CPE. It's faster than my DSL. That's why I use it.
But in terms of steady connection, I read before somewhere that DSL offers a more stable and steady connection and so is better.

What's your knowledge about this? Thanks a lot.

Hey, @amirr I don't know if my internet is LAN or DSL or what?, all I know is that I have a technicolor Modem, speed 300/50Mbps & Wi-Fi also and it is through the telephone cable or something, in the wall, can anyone answer me about what kind of internet I have? 😩 :rolleyes::coffee:

Sorry, I know now what kind of Internet I have, it is cable, sorry for asking about something you can find on the web.:censored::cautious:

If you have problem with LTE signal then DSL would be more stable indeed. It's best to test your mobile signal stability where you will actually use it.
In my experience LTE could sometimes drop, or it could even downgrade to 3G or lower, so I would definitely use wired connection in such situation.

So you have both DSL and also LTE for your desktop PC?

Me too; I always use a wired connection for my PC, but I use LTE when my DSL is not okay. My LTE is wired as well.

Wired is probably connection between your computer and modem, but you get modem connected to internet through wireless LTE signal?
