4G mobile broadband WiFi device is launched by EE UK

Monday, April 22nd 2013

EE has launched one of the first LTE Category4, 150Mbps capable WiFi modems (MiFi), which is the Huwei E5776. This mobile WiFi modem is capable of sharing 4G mobile broadband (connecting up to 10 devices like a mini WiFi router) using the EE network. This first of its kind device creates a mobile WiFi, or rather a MiFi hotspot that allows sharing of many devices like one or more smartphones, tablets or laptops over a 4G connection. It allows EE customers with a computer or device not directly compatible to 4G, to use them on the 4G mobile broadband network. This device converts the 4G signal to a compatible standard wireless broadband signal. The device comes with 2x2 WiFi antennas, a 3000 mAh battery, MicroSD card slot, MicroUSB port and supports IPv6/IPv4 dual stack network.

At present EE is the UK's only major provider offering 4G  connectivity. But Vodafone and O2 are expected to follow soon with their service. However EE is planning to double the speeds on its network this summer, planning to reach 55% of the UK population by June. Current speeds offered are about 5 times that of 3G  presently in UK. EE's 4G mobile broadband plans start at £12.99 per month with 1 GB of data (on a 24 month contract), with 30 days of free service and the Huwei E5776 coming free. Customers buying this device can benefit by EE Film offering 2 for 1 on cinema tickets/streaming/downloading films.  At a £25.99 per month plan (24-month contract), customers can go up to 8GB data allowance. Also available from EE is the USB Dongle to connect to the 4G EE network while on the move. Users can also stay connected on the London Tube with WiFi provided free by Virgin Media.
