ZTE MF91T 4G Router VS ZTE MF91S Mobile Hotspot

If you have many electronics in pocket and want them all access Internet, it's a good idea to have a mobile pocket WiFi hotspot. Since 4G is becoming the mainstream, more and more 4G pocket WiFi is optional for users. As one of the wireless terminals supplier, ZTE has many mobile hotspot for users, such as ZTE MF91, MF91T, MF91s, MF91D etc... Many people feel confused by the model numbers.    

 

Most times, we see the ZTE mobile hotspots are in the same blue package, from the 3G mobile hotspot to 4G, no new design element could be found. In the aspect, ZTE is not doing well. User can only see the model number from the back stick and can't identify the broadband difference.  

 

 

 

If you have ZTE MF91T and MF91s, you may be unable to tell from them. You may know they are both 4G TD-LTE mobile router, but what's the really difference between then?    

 

Usually, the main difference between the mobile hotspot is on the frequency bands. ZTE MF91T hotspot could support 4G TD-LTE band 38 and 40 (2300/2600MHz) and 3G HSPA+ 900/2100MHz. ZTE MF91S could also support TD-LTE band 38 and 40. What's more, it also supports TDD band 39 (1900MHz) and FDD band 7(2600MHz). ZTE MF91s is specially for Chinese operator "China mobile". So these 4G bands are for 4G network in China, and MF91s supports 3G TD-SCDMA & 2G GPRS.  

 

 

 

 

The frequency band that the pocket WiFi supports is the main concern. Since the LTE technology difference, the connection speed may vary. ZTE MF91T could support maximum download speed up to 68Mbps while upload speed to 17Mbps. Since ZTE MF91s is a TDD/FDD dual-mode mobile hotspot, when working on TDD mode, ZTE MF91S could reach same speed as MF91T, but when working FDD mode, MF91s mobile router could reach peak download speed up to 100Mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. From this aspect, we can see LTE dual-mode mobile hotspot is more flexible to adapt to the network environment.      

 

 

Other features are almost the same because they comes from the same design, inner part is modified to suit different LTE networks. If you want unlocked ZTE MF91T or MF91s, welcome to buy from www.4gltemall.com

Will you buy Huawei E589 or Unlocked Vodafone R210 4G Pocket WiFi?

It has been a long time since Huawei E589 and Vodafone R210 available in the market. But there are still many users who haven't gotten their 4G mobile WiFi.  

 

Today, we will have a general review of the two similar 4G LTE mobile WiFi. Huawei released Huawei E589 at the beginning of 2012, then Vodafone customized this factory model per its preference, then Vodafone R210 was presented to public.

   

Vodafone R210 4G Pocket WiFi was first available in European areas for Vodafone 4G LTE network.  With Vodafone logo below the screen, it looks cool. The classic combination of red and black color makes Vodafone R210 attractive. However, following the factory model of Huawei E589, Vodafone R210 has only one external antenna connector, which may not be a good solution for MIMO. The battery is inserted and cannot be detachable. But the battery is rechargeable with capacity of 3000mAh, which could support the R210 to work for 6 - 8 hours.

 

   

 

Here comes a question, what's the key difference between Huawei E589 and Vodafone R210? Are they just different from the logo? It's a good question.  

 

Vodafone R210 is for the commercial 4G LTE network from Vodafone in Europe. So when Vodafone ordered R210, it set R210 to support its deployed 4G LTE frequency band 800/1800/2600MHz. However, Huawei E589 is the model in Huawei brand, so it's not limited to any network, per the specification, we found it would work on 4G FDD 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz, which covers almost 80% 4G FDD network available now. Based on good reputation in 3G mobile WiFi, Huawei E589 4G LTE pocket WiFi will lead the market demand.

     

So Huawei E589 would support more operators over the world, unlimited to Vodafone. Per current sales record, Huawei E589 is the most popular mobile WiFi for 4G LTE network, especially in Asia and Europe. The good news is that there are unlocked Vodafone R210 available in 4gltemall.com , it means Vodafone R210 could not only work with Vodafone 4G network, but also support the 4G FDD network operators in other countries or areas. And the price is better than Huawei E589, so if you like Vodafone R210, and don't want contract, to buy an unlocked Vodafone R210 from 4gltemall.com is a good idea.
