    Once set up provides reliable, fast broadband on 4g, much faster than my rural land line which is 1mbps if I am lucky. Excellent support from zyxel during set up.

    Since changing from a Huawei 618 to this aerial mouted router, I have seen speeds get better and have had no drop outs at all (apart from when the cell went down!).

    The admin menu is much better and there is far more diagnostic info available to help you when setting things up

    I spent quite a while trying to get a reliable 4g signal, and had tried all the recommended set ups with correct external antennas and good quality routers etc, but kept hitting a dead end with poor signal and slow speeds. I eventually found this, and it was the last ditch attempt before I gave up, and I am so glad I did! Yes, it is expensive, but it actually works. I watches a lot of you tube videos about it to learn how it works, and the set up was pretty easy.
    Like all LTE set ups, you need to take the time to ascertain where the best signal is coming from, point it in places you think there is no chance it would work- you may be surprised- as this will go through buildings and trees etc unlike others. One massive plus this has over other external antennas with a cable to your modem/ router indoors (so there is a certain amount of loss and you can’t use a long cable if you are tight on speed as it is), is that the is PoE so you can just run a Cat5e cable to it- we are using a…

    Pro quality item. Well packaged and everything is included. Easy installation and set up. Unpack, find the best signal spot using their phone app or point in the line of vision of cellular mast, run the ethernet cable to the supplied PoE unit included and connect to your internal router – that’s it.

    Choice of 4G provider is very critical for good performance – buy cheap PAYG SIMs from all providers and test by rotating the modem in all directions before signing up to a contract. Go for UNlimited phone SIM (they work out a lot cheaper than data SIM and work fine with LTE modems and at max speed). With my previous set up (Huawei B525 + external aerial) I was getting 60 down and 30 up. With these babies I could not believe my eyes – once installed I am getting 150 down and 60 up with EE (mast in clear view 400m away), and 60 down and 30 up with O2 (mast 2km away) which I use as a back up. 4G broadband is surprisingly extremely reliable and less likely to go down than fibre. BE WARNED…

    I loved this device but had to return it because all four mobile phone signals are hopelessly inconsistent in the area where I live. I have broadband fibre at home and get speeds of up to 25 Mbs D/L and 8 U/L. I got sim cards from all 4 mobile operators to tests which direction the signal was coming from and which was the fastest. I then used the fastest one, EE, in the ZyXEL device. It worked like a dream and suddenly I was getting speeds of up to 100 & 50 Mbs. But an hour later and fo no apparent reason it had dropped to 4/0.3 Mbs. So as I said, a great idea, massive potential but make sure you have a fast, reliable and consistent mobile phone signal. And if you find one then you’re a very lucky person!

    Be very careful which version of this router you buy. It struggles to connect to some well known Apps so you end up with internet but key functionality missing. This has happened three times to friends and colleagues. Zyxel are reluctant to admit there is problem and give you a lot of tasks to do. Look esle where!
