Calyx Hotspot and VPNs

Hello all,

I am using Calyx T10 hotspot. My method for vpn while using the hotspot was via openvpn client on my andriod device, worked perfectly. Last week my subscription ended with Bytzvpn and so I was interested in trying another service. Here is what I found.
Old service - Bytzsvpn
With Calyx Hotspot via openvpn android - works
home wifi via openvpn android - works.

Test vpn -

Hotspot used - T10 with Calyx LTE plan.

If you have a Calyx hotspot with service, let me know if you have experienced the same. I am wondering if it some solution I can do to have things working smoothly again.
