EE UK Launch 150Mbps Capable 4G Mobile Broadband and WiFi USB Modem

Saturday, Apr 20th, 2013 (7:55 am) - Score 3,641

Mobile operator EE, which recently announced that it would double its headline 4G based Mobile Broadband speeds up to 80Mbps (here), has now launched one of the United Kingdom’s first LTE Category 4 (150Mbps capable) based mobile WiFi modems (MiFi) – the Huawei E5776.

The modem, which essentially redistributes the operators Mobile Broadband service to computers and other internet-enabled devices around your home by also acting as a mini wifi router, is naturally being released to help customers take full advantage of EE’s June 2013 network speed upgrade.

Prices for the operators dedicated Mobile Broadband plans currently start at £12.99 per month (24 month contract) for a 1GB (GigaByte) usage allowance, which incidentally the press release incorrectly lists as “1Gb” (Gb = Gigabit), and top of that you also get 1 month of free service. Sadly the plans only go up to 8GB and that will set you back £25.99 per month, which is quite tiny when you consider the forthcoming speed boost (though average speeds will be closer to 20Mbps).

Paul Jevons, EE’s Director of Products and Devices, said:

We’re pleased to be launching our first next generation 4G device. With this device, not only will customers get amazing Superfast 4GEE speeds today, but they’ll also benefit from an even greater experience when we double the speeds on our network, which will be rolling out this summer.”

Consumers with a Huawei E5776 will also benefit from EE Film (combines 2 for 1 cinema ticketing and film downloads or streaming) and a discount of £5 per month on the providers superfast fixed line FTTC Fibre Broadband packages.

Unfortunately the press release doesn’t give us all the details, so we had to go hunting around to find out what the Huawei E5776 really included. Suffice to say that it uses 2×2 wifi antennas, supports 10 wifi devise simultaneously (some 3G/4G wifi modems only support 5), includes a 3000mAh batter, micro SD card support, micro USB port and it’s even designed to work with an IPv6/IPv4 dual stack network.
