50GB 4G Data on EE with a 1 month contract. Free 4GEE Wifi Mini 2 Device.

I was looking for a Mobile Wifi device with data for the kids use on holiday in August. 50GB of data and Free Device suits me! Once delivered rang EE and cancelled the contract straight away so that it doesnt renew in September.

Cat 7 enabled 4GEE WiFi Mini (capable of supporting theoretical download speeds of up to 300Mbps) also connects up to 20 devices and is perfect for those who want practical connectivity in their pocket at all times. The device supports WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and weighs in at just 85g, with a 2,150 mAh battery offering up to 8 hours use. Includes USB-C port.

£49.99 with 6GB on EE data payg at Argos so excellent deal
Note: ALL remaining data at the end of the 1 month (normally 30 day) billing cycle doesn't carry over to the next month, I.e if you've only used 40GB/50GB you won't get 50GB + the 10GB unused data from the previous month added on, It'll refresh at 50GB again for another 30 days just like a phone contract (apart from the new roll over deals/contracts but this isn't one).

Can this be used in the USA? I want up to 6 devices to tether to it whilst on holiday.

I have a Three 20GB data SIM and I was planning on buying a MiFi/travel router but wondering if this is a better deal.

...plus £10.10 topcashback ("All 30 Day Tablet and Mobile WiFi Data Plans") - if they pay.
How is the device powered?
Looks a good deal for the UK but be aware if you are planning on roaming with this EE limit you to 15GB of EU roaming data each month regardless of how much your contract is for. I have a house in France and moved my contract to Vodafone to avoid this cap on data.
It has a battery, charger via USB

The device isn't locked to EE is it? I can pop in a data SIM from any other network?
Does the data expire after a certain period if not used?

Yeah it's monthly contract
Are these crappy Alcatel ones like the previous generation?

Yup, EE mainly uses Alcatel for own brand now.

That'll be why it's cheap then. Went through 3 in 2 months before getting money back on previous generation.

It’s new only launched last month - I’ve got a VERY old EE Alcatel Y800 I got for £10 last year and 25MBPS easy on Virgin on 1800Mhz 4G band, onlyslightly lower than a Huawei E5573 by a few mbs.

DM will be using commissions to reduce to free, ain’t cheap, cheapest on EE webshop £40 on 30 days with 15GB for £25

If unlocked will it work abroad
Cat 7 and connection for 20 devices is a pointless boast, when you only have 50gb of data.
Very interested

if I cancel, can I re-enable in the future and load it up with say 30GB?

And what would happen when it hits 50GB does it just stop or is there exuberant overage charges?
Does this support external SMA antennas?
Looks a good deal, perfect for the kids when we go camping 🏼 🏼
Bloody awesome find and awesome timing! I'm moving house in a fortnight and my current ISP (mentioning no names Branston Pickle!!) cancelled my service early and won't reconnect me as new buyers are already active at this address.
Have you tried being without internet access? How does one play music/ watch TV, control the lights?
This will cover us very nicely!
Can someone explain why this might be better than just using your phones 4g?

This lets up to 20 devices connect so like a mini router for mobile data. For individual use, your phones 4G would be the same as this. Think of this as switching in your personal hotspot on your phone and it being on steroids.
I own one of these. Micro-usb charging and it has a battery that can be replaced. 5ghz seems to be buggy at the moment, cannot turn on both 2.4 & 5ghz together. Device is made by Alcatel and locked as usual.

not sure if you can pop a US simcard because i can’t do that for prev gen unlocked set due to incompatibility of bandwidth. Seems like the bands may be designed for EU/Asia LTE similar to last gen.

Anyway the EE store manager told me i can only use it in the UK

Would this work in marmaris, turkey?
Wondering if anyone knows:

Can you choose when to activate/start the monthly service, or do you need to provide details at time of purchase?
Eg buy now but keep until you need it?

Can you remove the SIM and use in another router?
Thanks
Just bought a version 3 from Argos £39.39 for 6gb data. You start when you insert and register sim. Then top up as needed. Pity I didn't see above deal but if anyone can help with my question. Can you cancel the monthly subscription after 1 month and keep the, 50g of data?

We've used loads of the previous generation for a couple of digital inclusion projects I work on, not had any problems at all... Apart from EE not including a top up card so you have fiddle about phoning up to top up as the online option never ever seems to work.

If it's a rolling deal the 50gb only lasts a month anyway.
Voted hot. Any experience with unlocking the device? Also what bands are supported?
Doesn't anyone know if this is locked to EE ?

It's EE branded, so a pretty safe bet.
