Huawei E8278 4G LTE Dongle
First up, we have the infallible E8278 from telecommunications giant Huawei. Now, it’s been available in the market for more than 2 years, but still remains a fantastic option. It’s also the most affordable LTE Wingle, but doesn’t compromise on features or build quality. It supports SMS, external antenna ports, soft WiFi for up to 10 devices, SD card, and plug play features. There are two versions: E8278s-602 and E8278s-603 with different LTE bands supported.
Huawei E8372 Wingle
The Huawei E8372 4GWiFi modem is another affordable yet great option for you. It is the latest LTE Wi-Fi dongle from Huawei. It is similar with E8278, but it has more sub versions with more LTE bands supported. It has pretty much everything the Huawei E8278 mentioned above does, such as external antenna supporting, plug and play functionality, and MicroSD card expandable storage, SMS, WiFi broadcast up to 10 devices, SD card, Firewall, UPnP，ALG and NAT function. There are E8372h-511, E8372h-153, E8372h-607, E8372h-608 and E8372h-510.
Unlike Huawei E8278 and E8372 which are LTE CAT4 devices, the Alcatel W800 WiFi USB router is a LTE CAT3 device which creates a WiFi zone with download speeds up to blazing fast 100 Mbps. Alcatel one touch link W800 is not only a 4G LTE USB ongle, but it transforms into a portable WiFi hotspot through the use of two sets of accessories. The W800 router allowing up to 10 users to simultaneously stay connected online. It cannot accept external antenna because there is no slots. There are 3 versions about W800: W800-O, W800-Z, and W800-N.
Different from the above Wingles, the MF79S don’t have different subversions. It can only support 4G B1/B3/B5/B8/B40/B41. It is based on WISEFONE7520 platform. The LTE download speed is up to 150Mbps and the upload speed is up to 50Mbps. By inserting a SIM card and insert the dongle to USB power supply, it could broadcast Wi-Fi signal and enable 8 users to access the Internet. It could support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (n up to 150Mbps).
ZTE MF79 is another LTE Wi-Fi stick from ZTE. It is also a LTE CAT4 device. However, it supports different LTE bands from MF79s. It supports LTE Band 3(1800 MHz)/Band 7(2600 MHz)/Band 28(700MHz) which cannot support most of carriers in Middle East countries. The SD slot enables users to extend the memory storage up to 32GB. Unfortunately, there are no antenna slots for inserting external antenna. If you are in the poor signal area, you could take the Huawei E8278 Wi-Fi modem and E8372 LTE dongle into consideration.
