As EE announce that they’ll be issuing their new Huawei B593 routers to customers in Cumbria who are taking part in their rural 4G rollout, we thought it would be a good time to take a look at this particular 4G router and find out what it can do.
The Huawei B593 router is billed as the ideal choice for small businesses looking to reap the benefits of 4G mobile internet rather than using fixed broadband. It is also useful for homes that require connectivity for multiple communication and entertainment devices at any one time, but have limited broadband connectivity. The Huawei B593 router can connect up to 30 wireless devices simultaneously, so it’s perfect for a medium sized office or a very busy home. Businesses will certainly benefit from the VOIP connectivity.
The Huawei B593 router is particularly recommended for temporary offices, construction sites, or pop up shops, where installing fixed broadband would be too costly or complicated. EE says “Instead of waiting to be connected via a landline number, just turn the Huawei B593 4G Router on and your whole office is connected to our 4GEE network. And when you leave, just turn it off and take it with you.”
So what are the benefits of the Huawei B593 router?
- LTE download speeds of up to 100 Mbps
- LTE upload speeds of up to 50 Mbps
- Compatible with Windows 7, Windows XP, Vista and Mac OS
- Works on 1800/900/2100/2600Mhz 4G LTE frequencies
- 4 x LAN ports
- 2 x USB ports
- 1 x SIM card slot
The Huawei B593 is a sleek and stylish router, weighing less than 1kg. It is simple to set up, and doesn’t require an engineer to install it. You can install a SIM card directly into the router, and can manage all the settings via an online interface. The dimensions of the router are just 290mm x 183mm x 73mm so it won’t take up a lot of space in your home or office.
The main benefit of the Huawei B593 is the speed of data transfer, which is superb when making use of 4G LTE. EE states that the router will maintain connectivity even if it moves outside of 4GEE coverage. There are two MIMO antenna ports on the router, and antennas can help the device to reach the maximum speeds, although the router can be used without them. With this in mind it’s not surprising that EE has chosen this 4G router for its rural customers in Cumbria.
The Huawei B593 is available on a number of 4GEE mobile broadband business plans. Data plans range from 8GB to 128GB depending on the size of the company and usage levels. For businesses that are looking for a quick and easy way to get multiple users online in an area with 4G connectivity, without the hassle of installing fixed broadband, the Huawei B593 4G router on one of EE’s mobile broadband packages is certainly a good choice.
