Nice one @albut ! Thanks for posting! Actually this is exactly something what I am after. Seen some great reviews on this.
Price is lower now and it's good for a AC1200, CAT6, 4G+
Heat!
I've used one of these for 6 months and it worked quite reliably with 5 users connected to it. Very rarely did it loose 4G connection. It was a lot better than an EE 'mifi' device that we used prior to this one.

Edit sorry just realised I was using the MR400 but assume this is the upgraded wifi version.

I bought this the other day and was a little disappointed with it to be honest so returned. Unless in a strong reception area it wasnt great, you could connect an external antenna to make it better possibly, but I went for the Huawei just because I could tweak it more using the tools available for it.

I have a TP-link dwr-921 and am buying the mr600 to hopefully improve upon the d/l I have now around, 20Mps at best but variable. Purchased the Huawei 535 cat 7 and found it not to be as good as what I already have so returned it. Will do the same if this one doesn’t shape up.
yeah, I have my Xiaomi mi 8 and not getting to 4G+ with vodafone for some reason and max speed is around 35 Mbps down. My GF has the poco f2 pro and getting the 4G+ with around 50Mbps down. I need something to get a good speed....

Huawei 535 cat 7, you can use tools like ltehmonitor.github.io/ (LTE H Monitor - translate the page to English) to tweak the CELL_ID and the bands. You can use play.google.com/sto…=GB if you have an android phone. Allows you to switch off bands from the cell tower to see if you can improve the download/upload speeds.

If you use cellmapper.net/enbid once you have the eNB ID from the tools above to see what cell towers are in your area. If you have a directional external antenna you can then look to point to one of those towers and test your speeds. Plenty of options but at the end of the day it depends on network congestion.

so, you get faster speed on poco than the 5G router on 4G???
Don't have 5g signal yet . But the router now just about matches the speed of the Poco

Well I’m with BT broadband at home and have BT mobile. So I got family sim with double data for halo customers 60gb/month for extra £12 or £14 per month. Giffgaff do good PAYG data sim deals. They’re O2 carrier. Be careful not to have credit with them as if you go over your goodybag (as they call it) they take it from any credi you have and it’s expensive.Also heard Smarty sims are also a good deal, think carrier is three. Hope this helps.
Tried BT carrier EE and Giffgaff carrier O2. EE was better at my location.

Great, so how does it perform?
I’ll get back tomorrow still playing with and the jury’s out. Albeit only marginal 4g d/l speed increase it looks like it’s a winner for me due to other factors.

what is it marginal against please - looking to buy one - what other factors make it a winner - thanks
OK so here is my experience with the MR600. Firstly I use a DWR-921 in an area with weak 4G and get anywhere between 7/20mbps D/L speed with external poynting SIMO. Signal strength 48-60% RSRP poor and RSRQ fair to poor. Trying the MR600 I found the d/l speed to be about the same even though it showed a 4G+ signal. Therefore for me no real advantage. However, in it’s favour it has a better interface allowing more user control and the Wi-fi indoors is tad stronger. But I wanted increase speed that this unit did not provide it. Still a good price but going to keep my DWR-921.

oh, not good news. any chance to try this on yours? (not sure about warranty issue or returning it issue after updating firmware on it) - community.tp-link.com/en/…e=1


to my best knowledge the LTE+ network is carrier aggregation and this is how we can get the faster speed. You could play around with that and see if there is any improvement on that....41728584-Js8HI.jpg

Looked at that but decided rather return it without voiding any warranty. This beta has been in the pipeline for some time so I wonder why it hasn’t been released. Works for some but not others it seems.

Update from me:

So, I went for this, and I can confirm that the top speed is around 80Mbps down, the average is 50 and works with Vodafone on 4G+ network out of the box.
If you haven't sent it back yet maybe you want to consider to tweak yours. (just an idea)

How? I tried various settings the only thing I didn’t do was download the beta firmware to allow band selection. I tried Giffgaff O2 and BT EE. Both were about the same. Anyway it’s gone back. Regards

Very wise, I’ll wait for the V2 to try at my location. I still think V1 is a great buy but not for me given my DWR-921 gives the same result. Glad it works well for you. I like the interface and it has a fair amount of control over settings, but if it’s not broke don’t fix it as they say. Keep safe.

Well. I tried the mr600 and sent it back as it was not better speed wise than my old tp-link dwr-921. Looked at some reviews on B535 and wasn’t sure about it. Didn’t seem to have 4g+. Difficult to tell as Huawei do so many different versions. Tried to get manual to look at but could only find a quick start guide that didn’t give me enough info. If you do get the B535, let me know what you think.
Sorry meant sent back Huawei 525. If anyone has the B535 232 can they let me know if it supports 4g+ and Gand selection. Thanks
