Summary  

 

From the specs table, we can see the Huawei B618 router is more advanced than unlocked Huawei E5186 router. LTE CPE B618 could support downlink speed up to 600Mbps with 4 x 4 MIMO technology, which is almost double faster than that of Huawei E5186. The two variant models of the two routers cover similar LTE frequency bands, which mean they are designed for same areas. However, the advanced Huawei B618 has fewer Ethernet interfaces than Huawei E5186. If you would use the router with more than 2 devices through Ethernet port, you’d better select the Huawei E5186 as a home or office router. However, if you use the router mainly through WiFi, the Huawei B618 router would be very good. Since the two Huawei Routers would provide wireless internet for up to 64 users, Huawei B618 provider fast internet speeds.

 

 

Of course, the Huawei B618 provide faster speeds with advanced technologies, the price would be more expensive than Huawei E5186 router. So if you don’t have enough budget for B618 CPE, the Huawei 5186 is recommended, in our test, it’s good enough for most cases in our daily life.

AT&T Unite Explore (815s) VS Nighthawk M1

As the top network provider in the USA, AT & T has presented much 4G mobile broadband for wireless LTE network connection. They are very popular with the end-users. However, for those who are unfamiliar with the 4G LTE Wireless routers , they may have trouble choosing the best LTE router for themselves. The AT & T Unite Explore and Nighthawk M1 are the two most popular LTE mobile hotspots. Someone may ask: what's the difference between AT & T Unite Explore and Nighthawk M1 ? Which one is better? We will review the features and specs of the mobile hotspots. You can get the answer from this article.

 

 

Netgear AC815 VS Nighthawk M1 MR1100 Appearance and Interfaces 

 

The AT&T Unite Explore comes from the manufacturer Netgear and the model number is Netgear Aircard 815s. The AT&T Nighthawk M1 also comes from the Netgear. The Aircard 815s AT&T was available in the market much earlier than the latest AT&T Nighthawk M1. If you had read some promotion post from AT&T, you may know the Aircard 815s is the world’s first rugged mobile hotspot, which is waterproof and dust-proof. Like other Netgear WiFi hotspot AT&T, Netgear Aircard 815s has a touch screen on the front and two buttons (Home and Back) at the side of the screen. The Nighthawk M1 is different this time, it has a round screen, but not touch screen. The power status and signal status are indicated by the LED indicators around the screen.

 

 

The AT&T Unite Explore logo is at the left side of the screen. Two connectors for external antennas are available at the edge side of the body. The Nighthawk M1 also has two connectors for external antennas, and they have the same connector type TS-9. The battery of Aircard 815s and Nighthawk M1 could be removed for exchange and they both use Micro SIM card size. They both have a USB3.0 interface. The unique feature of Netgear M1 is that it also has on Ethernet port for LAN and USB type-A for output. This feature should be highlighted because there are very few 4G mobile router with Ethernet port in the market.

 

 

ATT Unite Explore vs Nighthawk M1 Specs

 

From the appearance and interfaces, we can see the two AT&T 4G mobile hotspots are very different. The ATT Unite Explore special feature is the rugged design with a touchscreen. The Netgear Nighthawk M1 AT&T seems more powerful with Ethernet port and more interfaces. However, the Nighthawk M1 doesn’t configure a touchscreen. Let’s have a check the full specs of AT&T unite explore and Nighthawk M1.

Summary

 

From the table, we can see the Nighthawk M1 AT&T is more advanced with the support of LTE Category 16, which could achieve download speed to 1Gigabit/s. The AT&T Aircard 815s is an LTE Cat.9 hotspot supporting download speed up to 450Mbps. The AT&T Nighthawk supports more WiFi users up to 20 users while Aircard 815 supports 15 users. The Nighthawk M1 and AT&T Unite explore supports similar LTE frequency bands for ATT. However, the Nighthawk M1 has a variant model for Australian network provider Telstra, which works on difference LTE frequency bands.

 

 

What’s more, the Nighthawk M1 supports more LTE advanced Pro network technology such as 4 x 4 MIMO and 4 band carrier aggregation, which make the high-speed downlink possible. Since both of the AT&T mobile hotspots has the JumpBoost feature, which makes the Netgear hotspot work like a power bank to charge other devices. The Aircard 815 has a battery of 4340mAh capacity while the Nighthawk M1 has a battery of 5040mAh. So the AT&T Nighthawk M1is more powerful than the AT & T Unite Explore in almost all the aspects, which means the Nighthawk M1 would be much better than the older model Aircard 815s. If you are a price-sensitive buyer, the Netgear Aircard 815s seems good enough, but if you want a future-proof pocket hotspot, the Nighthawk M1 is no doubt the best one. By the way, there are unlocked AT & T Unite Explore and Unlocked Nighthawk AT & T M1 available on www.4gltemall.com online store. You can buy unlocked for global use.
