Now the 4G LTE service is becoming available in countries around the world. Being the fastest network available means download speeds four to five times faster than 3G networks, which rivals some home broadband connections. Users can access the fast mobile internet anywhere with any 4G-enabled device. 4G LTE Wi-Fi dongle is one of the choice for you to appreciate the high speed on the move. By simple inserting a SIM card, it could broadcast 4G network anytime with power supply. Without further ado, here are the top 5 high speed 4G LTE Wingles for you!

 

Huawei E8278 LTE Wingle

First up, we have the infallible E8278 from telecommunications giant Huawei. Now, it’s been available in the market for more than 2 years, but still remains a fantastic option. It’s also the most affordable LTE Wingle, but doesn’t compromise on features or build quality. It supports SMS, external antenna ports, soft WiFi for up to 10 devices, SD card, and plug & play features. There are two versions: E8278s-602 and E8278s-603 with different LTE bands supported.

 

Huawei E8372 4G Wingle

The Huawei E8372 is another affordable yet great option for you. It is the latest LTE Wi-Fi dongle from Huawei. It is similar with E8278, but it has more sub versions with more LTE bands supported. It has pretty much everything the Huawei E8278 mentioned above does, such as external antenna supporting, plug and play functionality, and MicroSD card expandable storage, SMS, WiFi broadcast up to 10 devices, SD card, Firewall, UPnP,ALG and NAT function. There are E8372h-511, E8372h-153, E8372h-607, E8372h-608 and E8372h-510.

 

Alcatel Onetouch Link W800

Unlike Huawei E8278 and E8372 which are LTE CAT4 devices, the Alcatel W800 WiFi USB router is a LTE CAT3 device which creates a WiFi zone with download speeds up to blazing fast 100 Mbps. Alcatel one touch link W800 is not only a 4G LTE USB  ongle, but it transforms into a portable WiFi hotspot through the use of two sets of accessories. The W800 router allowing up to 10 users to simultaneously stay connected online. It cannot accept external antenna because there is no slots. There are 3 versions about W800: W800-O, W800-Z, and W800-N.

 

ZTE MF79S

Different from the above Wingles, the MF79S don’t have different subversions. It can only support 4G B1/B3/B5/B8/B40/B41. It is based on WISEFONE7520 platform. The LTE download speed is up to 150Mbps and the upload speed is up to 50Mbps. By inserting a SIM card and insert the dongle to USB power supply, it could broadcast Wi-Fi signal and enable 8 users to access the Internet. It could support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (n up to 150Mbps). Unfortunately, there are no antenna slots for inserting external antenna. If you are in the poor signal area, you could take the Huawei E8278s and E8372 LTE dongle into consideration.

Netgear Aircard 340U

Netgear AirCard 340U is the first 4G LTE modem which has an LCD interface allowing the user to easily view data usage information, network, and signal strength info at a glance. It is a LTE CAT3 dongle which supports download speeds up to 100 Mbps and upload speeds up to 50 Mbps. It also lets user to extend memory with microSD™ cards up to 32GB.

India has the fastest growing mobile internet base across the world and is poised to become the 2nd largest country (by user base) across the world. Indian telecom operators have increased the pace of their 4G rollouts. Earlier, mostly Airtel was launching 4G throughout the country. Currently Vodafone and Idea have stepped up their games, launching 4G in various circles. With so many operators launching/poised to launch 4G in the coming weeks and months, it’s becoming increasingly confusing as to which operator is launching 4G in which location and under which band.

There are mainly 6 different internet providers. Different operators will follow different strategies depending on their spectrum holdings. And there are primarily 4 spectrum bands on which 4G deployment is expected to take place.

  1. Band 5 / 850 MHz band – This band is primarily held by the yet-to-be launched operator Reliance Jio and Reliance Communications. It will provide great coverage to Reliance Jio. Reliance Communications, MTS, Tata Docomo and BSNL/MTNL are other holders of this band.
  2. Band 3 / 1800 MHz band – This band is already being used for 2G services in India. But this band also has the most developed device ecosystem in the world for 4G. As of now, spectrum that can be used for 4G services in this band are held by Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Reliance Jio, Aircel, Reliance Communications, Telenor, Videocon.
  3. Band 40 / 2300 MHz band – This is also a popular band for 4G deployments in India. Currently Reliance Jio, Aircel, Airtel and Tikona can use this band for 4G deployments.
  4. Band 41 / 2500 MHz band – This band is primarily held by BSNL and MTNL. They have decided to surrender a good chunk of this band in various service areas.

What is LTE Band 12

The lower band 700Mhz is divided into five blocks as shown below in figure.  The A, B, and C blocks are paired, which is LTE band 12( FDD 700Mhz Lower A/B/C) which makes them useful for services that require two-way transmission, such as wireless Internet. The upper half of the pair is usually used to transmit from a tower to mobile devices while the lower half is usually used to transmit from devices back to the network; this ordering is prevalent because higher frequency transmissions require more power.

 

Who use LTE Band 12

T-Mobile is the only national network in America currently utilizing band 12 LTE (regional operator US Cellular being the next largest), and support for that band is key in congested metro regions, where its low 700MHz frequency provides superior building penetration and increased capacity for the network. There are also other carriers uses the LTE band 12.

Canada: Bell (FDD 700 b mhz )

Guam: iConnect (FDD 700 b mhz), IT&E Overseas (FDD 700 a mhz)

Northern Mariana Islands: IT&E Overseas (FDD 700 a mhz)

United States: Adams Networks  (FDD 700 c mhz), BIT Communications(FDD 700 c mhz), Bluegrass Cellular(FDD 700 b c mhz), CVC (FDD 700 a mhz ), Fuego Wireless (PVT), Mosaic Telecom (FDD 700 c mhz), Nex-Tech Wireless (FDD 700 c mhz), Rock Wireless (FDD 700 a mhz), T-Mobile (FDD 700 a mhz), U.S. Cellular (FDD 700 a b mhz)

One of the more confusing elements of LTE/4G/3G coverage for users in Mexico is which carrier is using which band. There are five internet service providers in Mexico, however, all of them don’t exactly come out and share the operating frequency bands readily for the most part and for consumers.

For the five carriers, only Iusacell does not open the 4G LTE network service, the AT&T, Movistar, Nextel and Telcel are providing 4G LTE network service using LTE band 4 (1700/2100Mhz) and band 2 (1900Mhz). And all the Mexico carriers use 2G GSM 850/1900mhz and 3G UMTS AWS/850/1900Mhz.

For AT&T Mexico (Formerly Iusacell and Nextel Mexico) is a wireless operator Mexican company subsidiary of AT&T Inc., which is headquartered in Mexico City.
