Netgear Aircard 800s (Optus 4G Wi-Fi Modem) Review

As Netgear’s first LTE category 9 mobile hotspot, Aircard 800s has improved configuration for LTE Advanced networks. Netgear Aircard 800s was already available for Australian network provider Optus and named it as Optus 4G WiFi Modem AC800S. With support of LTE Cat.9 and 3 band carrier aggregation technology, Netgear AC800S could achieve download speed to 450mbps and upload speed to 50mbps, which is triple faster than that of LTE Cat.4 mobile hotspots. The AC800S Netgear could provide LTE Advanced connectivity, swift application response times, reliable connectivity and a better overall user experience for buffering data-heavy programs such as multimedia and video files.

 

 

User-friendly Touch Screen Netgear AC800S modem is not only fast for wireless internet connection but also extremely user-friendly. Like its predecessor Aircard 810s, Aircard 800s modem has a simplified touch screen, where users can see the important information about the internet, such as the signal strength, network provider name, battery status, data consumed, WiFi SSID and password, WiFi connected user quantity, SMS, and settings etc.. The most important is that user can do simple settings through the touch screen like operating a smartphone. The Netgear Aircard 800s is well positioned to offer you a superior mobile broadband experience like never before.

LTE Category 9 Modem

 

The Netgear 800S is designed to support LTE advanced network with LTE Category 9 and CA technology, which could support peak download speed to 450mbps. As a WiFi hotspot, Aircard 800 could support maximum 11 WiFi-enabled devices simultaneously. However, for many users, the carrier deployed networks have not reached LTE advanced. So Netgear Aircard 800s is a future-proof mobile router.

 

 

WLAN Standard 802.11ac with dual-band Netgear AC800S would increase network performance and reduce interference with 802.11ac and Dual-Band 2.4 GHz/5 GHz WiFi. What’s more, it could support multiple SSID and guest WiFi function, which is usually available for high-level LTE mobile hotspots. In addition, the WPN (WiFi Protected Setup) feature is available.  

 

Other features The Aircard 800 modem has a removable battery of 2930mAh, which could keep working for 11 hours and standby time could last for 260 hours. The battery can make Netgear 800s work like a power bank to charge other electric devices, which Netgear call it “Jump Boost” function. With the device, the Jump Boost cable is provided. Like other Netgear 4G mobile routers, Aircard 800s also has two connectors(TS-9 type) for a 4G external antenna.  

 

Summary Netgear Aircard 800s is a high-level mobile 4g router with the support of LTE advanced network to get fast speed connection on WLAN 802.11ac dual bands. The large battery could keep itself working for a long time and charge other terminals. The dual connectors for the external antenna are also very useful features for the people located at weak signal areas. The Netgear AC800s price is not expensive comparing with same level LTE-A mobile hotspots. If you want to buy an LTE-A mobile hotspot with good price, the Netgear AC800S is a good one to consider.
