How about Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi? Should I buy one?
As 5G network isn’t deployed anywhere, we are using 4G mobile phone but we aren’t enjoying the 5G speed.
How to solve it? We can use the 5G mobile WiFi router!
The principle is very simple. Many friends have used their mobile hotspots or 4G portable WiFi. The principle of 5G mobile WiFi is to convert 5G signals into WiFi signals and transmit them to users’ devices. In this way, as long as the terminal in the user’s hands supports WiFi, they can enjoy 5G high-speed networks. Realized the use of 4G mobile phones, can also enjoy the scene of 5G network. The signals also can be shared to laptops, tablets, drones and other devices.
On the end of the year 2019, Huawei released the portable router, Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi and Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro (part-number: E6878-870 and E6878-370).
I have bought a Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro (E6878-370). Compare to Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi (E6878-870), Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro has one big difference, that is, providing 8000 mAh battery.
So in this blog, I want to tell you something about this model.
What is in the box?
When I got the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro, I can’t wait to unpack. There are one Huawei 5G mobile WiFi Pro, a charger and a charging cable and some papers (guide, warranty card and others).
Take out a 5G SIM card, insert it to the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro, and then hold down the power button until the Huawei logo lights up on the display.
The device’s WiFi name will appear on the display after the first boot. You can use mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc. to connect to the device via WiFi. After connecting to the device, the initial settings are automatically performed. The setting process is also very simple. I only need to set the WiFi password and administrator password on one page, select the appropriate WiFi frequency band, and the setting can be completed. The entire process does not exceed 1 minute. After connecting to Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro via WiFi again, it can be used normally.
How about the Speed?
The official introduction says that this portable WiFi router can provide 867Mbps WiFi speed. Now let’s test it.
I used Huawei P30 to connect to Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro via WiFi. After using Speedtest test, the download rate is 399Mbps and the upload rate is 94.9Mbps. In terms of conversion, the download speed is about 40MB/s, and the upload speed is about 10MB/s. In the case of getting rid of fixed-line broadband outdoors, its network speed is more than 10 times that of 4G networks, which is almost comparable to 400Mbps home broadband.
I used a laptop computer to perform wired and wireless network speed tests. In the wireless connection mode, the download rate is 324.58Mbps and the upload rate is 95.75Mbps. In the wired connection mode, the download rate is 309.05Mbps and the upload rate is 100Mbps. Even when the current 5G network is not stable, the network level can basically reach the level of home broadband of more than 300M. In addition, if a firewall or anti-virus software is enabled on the computer, the network speed will also be reduced because the security software will detect these network traffic.
If the 5G network is not stable, especially there is almost no 5G signal indoors, the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Pro can’t provide a full speed.
