Huawei E3276 (150Mbps 4G/LTE) USB modem in PC and in DOVADO TINY router



The Huawei E3276 is the world’s first Cat.4, 4G/LTE USB modem! It was first deployed by Optus in Australia, A1 in Austria and Telia in Sweden. It is about to enter many other markets elsewhere. What makes this device special is that it can actually deliver speeds of 150Mbps, and is DOVADO is the first router brand (as always!) to support it. We are definitely in a world beyond “regular” 4G! This test was conducted on the evening of 23rd of September, 2012, in Stockholm, Sweden.

    What kind of data plans do you people in Europe have for this to be efficent for internet? 150mb/s would blow through almost every data plan in the us in under a hour. Not using a mobile browsers and relying on it for main internet is even worse. How does anyone get by? Unlimited data plans?

    You pronounced the name wrong.  The proper pronunciation is "Wah Wei" . A lots of people got this wrong.

    Hi, Does the E3276 have dual external antenna ports to boost reception in weaker signal areas?

    We are based out of Sweden. We have the toughest criteria in the global mobile industry when it comes to speed. Sweden carries both the burden and the privilege of being the world's first nation to deploy 4G/LTE. Your higher latency could be attributed to something else going on in the edge network (at the mobile operator) instead of directly assuming it is associated with the air transmission or your setup. Gute nacht!

    Daymn, thats the fastest reply i ever got. 🙂

    Of course not but since there is virtually no competition for you guys you might be content to just stay put. Do you have an estimate when new products are coming out?

    On another matter, in Austria LTE seems to have higher latency(but a more stable one) then DC-HSPA. Is there a technical reason for that?

    Thanks

    Is there any reason why we wouldn't? Obviously, this set a new bar. 😉

    Will you be offering faster (and obviously more expensive) modems in the future to support these speeds?

    OK. All I am saying is that it hurts me to see all the speed that is lost.
    I am sure that it wouldn't be 5-10 times more to have a stronger CPU in the router in order to get speeds that are closer to when the modem is connected directly to the computer, and I wouldn't mind to pay more if that option were to be available.

    Please also bear in mind that the DOVADO routers are the world's fastest routers supporting USB modems. We have done extensive tests with other brands, and most do not exceed 50Mbps. Most are actually in the mid 20's and 30's. Thanks

    Our website states ~70Mbps on the TINY. That's what the CPU is made to handle. If you try to completely max out the CPU and expect 100, then it's like driving a car without a functional steering wheel or seatbelt. It'll go really fast until it crashes and causes a lot of damage.

    1) Reaching 88.1Mbps is a new record compared to the previous 84Mbps. This is because the base station was very close by.
    2) Everyone wants a stable connection. This is an undisputed fact.

    Hi!

    Not sure what A1 does in Austria, but if you Google around, you will find an unlocked such modem. We cannot mention its location here. Thanks

    A laptop computer has a very strong CPU. It is probably at least 10 times stronger than what you have in a router. This is the reason why throughputs of 150Mbps are not achievable on a device that costs only about $100 in retail, compared to a computer that costs 5-10 times as much. I hope that answers your question. Thanks

    I don't think "it's just like".
    In the case of operators, there are many factors involved, like how many people are using the network, and the coverage, and many other factors. And let's not forget that in this video the operator did reach the 150 Mbps and an averege speed very close to the max.
    In the case of the router, is just the router, it's just one piece of hardware. In the case of the router…I think it's more "just like" a car that promises 100 horse power and in reality it's just 87hp

    The lan port speed of the router is 100 Mbps, so it should reach this speed, and not only 87 Mbps; since when it's connected directly into the computer it reaches the 150 Mbps. So, It's not the lan port speed, it's some other limitation of the router, and that's not good.
    I would very much like to watch the same test, but this time with the dovado 4GR that has got lan ports of 1 Gbps.

    But why is the transfer rate much better when the modem is connected directly into the computer, than when the modem is connected into the router?
    That's not good.

    Actually, don't mind what it says in the dialer software. Sometimes it easy just to edit the APN when switching between SIM cards. The fact is, all mobile operators offer Category 4 speeds in their base stations. They're always prepared for the next step! 😉
