First Look: T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot

2:07 /

For mobile users who want a fast and flexible mobile Internet access solution and who have moderate data usage needs, the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot ZTE MF61 will make a good investment.

[unk] device similar to a chocolate bar in more ways than one. Hello, my name is Dong Ngo, and this the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot. This is another 4G mobile right we have seen her at CNET and like others compact, it supports 5 Wi-Fi devices and also fast internet connection when connected to a 4G network. On top, the device has a [unk] hat clearly the signal shrunk, the connected wireless client And a battery gauge. On this side here, there is a power button that you need to press and hold for a few a seconds to turn it on and off and a WPS button for quick network set up. There's also a microSD port. On the other side, the device has a slot for an external antenna and down here is the microUSB port for charging. The T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot comes with a removable battery and offer about 6 hours of use in our testing, which is very good. Underneath the battery, you can find the SIM card and the default network names and encryption key. Now, what makes this rather different from the rest is not how it functions, but the data plan that T-Mobile has for it. There are 3 of them that cost $85, $50, $30, per month to have a gap of 10 gigabyte, 5 gigabyte, and 200 megabyte, respectively. While this data lunches are used up, you won't be charged more, but instead the device will work at much lower internet speed for the rest of the month. Keep that in mind because, you know, testing at 4G speed, you can go through 10 gigabyte data in just about 3 hours. so, enjoy it way you supposed you enjoy chocolate, slowly, other than providing access to the internet, the router also includes text messaging that can be used your web interface. The T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot is priced $80 with a 2 year contract, for more information about its performance and features, check out the phone review at cnet.com. Once again, my name is Dong Ngo, and this has been the first look at the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot.
