TogoTelecom – Raspberry Router

TogoTelecom – Raspberry Router

The Raspberry Pi Router (RaspRouter) for your TogoTelecom connection

Turn your Raspberry in a Router (Global), with the Github Repo from billz it’s easy to do this, but we want to extend it even further.

We are in Togo, Africa and love this country/continent. How to have affordable internet in a country who costs 1Mbit/s around 100 Euro/per month? You see right, 1Mbit/s (100-110Kbit/s Download – 20Kbit/s Upload) for 100 Euro!!! That’s kinda incredible. There exists a cheaper solution (Nope, not hacking the provider), using TogoTelekom “Normade USB Stick”, which costs around 18 Euro per month. The connection doesn’t has a fixed line (What it’s better) and you can surf a complete month for 18 Euro. You get right now the story.

Thanks to billz repo we have the “base” of our Raspberry Router setup, look into his repo to see how to install. We extending it to the WvDIAL for TogoTelecom, we created also a GitHub Repo. With this both, you have the “initial” base of accessing internet via your Raspberry. Well, but now you miss one important thing, there isn’t a WvDIAL page in RaspAp – WebGUI, we created for this also a GitHub Repo. We changed the “include/functions.php” “index.php” files, which has the WvDIAL page. Adding a systemd init file and after each reboot you got your internet up and running.

If you aren’t familiar with GitHub/Raspberry, we creating this solution for you, just drop us a line, and we get back to you

Note: Our RaspRouter currently supports a limited USB Dongle, if you have an older or even newer USB Dongle please let us know. We help you to install the dongle on your RaspRouter. Also we have tested with MTN, TogoCel, TogoTelecom and Moov.
