Telegram Premium cheaper and in Germany!

Published on in 💬 Micro

I have found a way, it is possible to subscribe to Telegram Premium at a cheaper price and in Germany (where it is actually not yet officially available)!

  1. install Telegram Desktop or Telegram Android (but the version from the Telegram page).
  2. write to the @PremiumBot.
  3. pay for Telegram Premium with a credit card.

I think the 4€ per month is a reasonable price for me for now. I’ve been using Telegram for years and I’m thrilled how quickly new features are implemented. I will gladly pay to keep Telegram going for a long time.

@jan It’s a user agent with JavaScript enabled, because that’s what sends the page view to my statistics tool. And it’s just my homepage (jlelse.dev) and not the home page from my blog. I won’t rate limit though, my site is cached using BunnyCDN and as long as it doesn’t cause gigabytes of traffic, I’ll just let things as they are.

I don’t know what’s the reason for that, but for the last few days someone with Windows 8.1 and what seems like the latest version of Chrome (at least that’s what the User-Agent string is telling) is messing up my homepage stats with hundreds of visits per day. Maybe it’s because jlelse.eu redirects there, which has a quite high Alexa rank and someone is scraping the site every few minutes? 🤔
