In addition to LTE, the LTE Cat 6 modem, of course, continue to UMTS with DC-HSPA+ and GSM/EDGE. On the other hand, of course, it must also be ensured that the velocities can be transferred from the router to the terminals anyway. Huawei has therefore installed for the first time in a MiFi router wireless ac (“Gigabit Wi-Fi”). What is the maximum speed can be achieved about it is not yet known, but one may assume that the full 300 Mbit/s is possible.
