Vodafone K5150 (HUAWEI) 4G LTE Stick Test

Vodafone has launched the K5150 LTE stick in this year. K5150 is a new USB modem on the market. The surf stick is manufactured by Huawei and comes in red and white design in the Vodafone stores. Supporting LTE Category 4 with up to 150 MBit/s in downlink, Vodafone K5150 is one of the fastest surf sticks on the market. Backward with DC-HSPA+ technology, connectors for external antennas and a slot for MicroSD cards are available. We have tested the K5150 modem for 2 weeks on the Vodafone network!

 

 

Vodafone K5150 Specifications
Vodafone K5150 LTE stick not only offers super-fast LTE with up to 150 Mbit/s, but also including UMTS DC-HSPA+ (up to 42.2 Mbit/s) and GSM. Vodafone is first operator in Europe to provide the maximum data rates. Under LTE networks, the practical downlink could reach approximately 120 Mbit/s, and the UMTS downlink speed could reach up to about 31 Mbit/s.
The USB port is protected by a small cap, unfortunately, the connection cannot swing as you wish like other high-end surfsticks HUAWEI E3276.  Especially for use in places with limited space, such as on the train, this function would be very useful.

 

At the side of the 4G Stick K5150, two connectors for external antennas and a slot for MicroSD memory cards have been integrated, so you can use the surf stick as storage media if necessary and can amplify the reception with an external antenna. The external antenna is TS-9, you could buy original Huawei 4G Antenna on 4gltemall.com.

Manufacturer: Huawei
Model Name: Vodafone K5150
Technologies: LTE (4G) UMTS (3G) GSM (2G)
Bands: 4G LTE: 2600/1800/800 MHz
3G WCDMA 2100/900 MHz
2G GSM: 1900/1800/900/850 MHz
Speeds: LTE: 150 Mbit/s downstream, 50 Mbit/s upstream (Category 4),
UMTS: 42.2 Mbit/s downlink, 5.76 Mbit/s uplink (when using DC-HSPA+)
GSM: 256 kbit/s (at Terms of EDGE)
Other: MicroSD slot for memory cards up to 32 GB, 2 x external antenna port TS-9 Software for Mac OS X and Windows

 

 
Vodafone K5150 LTE stick is in a very nice design, just like the 4G models that we had introduced, such as Vodafone R210 and from Vodafone K5007. The top of the K5150 can forwardly away, below is the slot for the SIM card.  Most users will not need the manual, since the installation of the Vodafone connection software is largely self-explanatory: after plugging it into a computer with Mac OS X or Windows operating system, the installation wizard automatically starts and guides in a few moments through the installation. After a short time it is already connected to the wireless network.

 

 

Speed and Reception
As you would expect from a modern LTE modem, the speeds are consistently good. However, the test was only on the 800 megahertz LTE network, even though, the performance on average is better than other 4G devices: downlink up to 55 Mbit/s were possible while the uplink of up to 23 Mbit/s. And the latency times were between 28 and 44 milliseconds, but usually in the range of 35 ms. The reception LTE800 was good, even in low-served regions, we could still surf with the Vodafone K5150 stably on the internet.

 

 

In the UMTS network, the receiving performance was also above average and was as easily one of the Huawei E3276. The data rates were about the same, however, various measurements showed about 13 Mbit/s for downlink via Vodafone DC-HSPA+.

 

 

Vodafone Connection Software
Vodafone provides with K5150 LTE stick from a piece of software which runs on both Windows operating systems and Mac OS X. For Windows XP, you need at least version with Service Pack 3, wherein the instructions to install even explains the basis of previously little common Windows 8.

 

The software has its good and bad sides. The advantages: The program is very easy for beginners to use and is pleasantly fast, if the PC is not too old. The detailed information and statistics about online time and data volume are exemplary. The cons: for experts, there are very limited possibilities to make adjustments and integrated into the software Manager interferes tremendously.

 

 

Conclusion to the Vodafone K5150 LTE Stick
The Vodafone K5150 LTE stick makes a good impression and is particularly recommended for Vodafone customers who just want a fast Internet connection without having to rely on special additional functions. Alternatively, the almost identical Huawei E3276 offers, for example, as Telekom LTE Speed Stick III of which does its job well in various router models.

ZTE MF195 3G HSDPA Mobile Internet Stick Review

Choosing the right USB modem for mobile internet is not easy. Therefore, we have to test another model, this time it’s from ZTE, and see if you are interested in this one.

 

One might think that it’s nothing. We need a little gadget that you insert into the USB port and configured to give us access to the mobile internet. It is worth to pay attention, both on the modem parameters, as well as any additional features that can benefit the users.

 

 

ZTE MF195 USB modem is a relatively new device offered by T-Mobile, which is consistent with the standard HSPA+ technology. According to official specification, we can achieve download speeds at up to 21 Mbps. The HSUPA upload speed could reach up to 5.76 Mbps. But under real environment, the speed may be only half or more.

 

 

New software for the modem ZTE MF195

 

There is new software that improves the performance of the MF195 modem. You can download them here - just that you click the “Downloads”.

 

The device ZTE MF195 itself has a removable top flap, under which there are slots for SIM card and a microSD memory card (supports up to 32 GB capacity). You have to admit, it’s a fantastic deal. If you just do not use a modem to connect to the Internet, we can always treat it as a normal flash drive, storing files. Of course, the same USB connector is safely protected from dust and debris particles from the environment. It is a pity that the cap is not somehow attached and can easily be lost. A great advantage of ZTE MF195 USB is built-in socket used to connect an external antenna. It certainly can be useful in areas with slightly weaker coverage. Users just need set aside a small cap and connect an external antenna (sold separately).

 

 

Modem Setup is basically maintenance-free. When plugged in the USB port, it will automatically install the drivers and software for Internet Manager. When it starts only give the code to the SIM card and wait for the Connect button, and then it will become active. And this happens almost instantly and you can see that both the hardware and software to work fine. The modem’s LED indicates the connection status.

 

 

User check speed Internet connection using specialized tools – SpeedTest. At the border of Downtown and Will in Warsaw, where we have tested the modem, we were able to achieve data transfer rates of 13 to 14 Mbps, and upstream from the network was about 3 to 4 Mbps. This is a very good result. All services and web pages load quickly, even without an external antenna, the modem does not lose coverage. ZTE MF195 USB therefore works very stable. During the next day’s test, changed the location in the city, and each time the modem connect to the network instantly.

 

 

 

 

In conclusion, the ZTE MF195 USB modem is definitely recommendable. It takes very little space and provides a stable access to the mobile Internet and a decent download speed and upload the data .Not to forget about the extra features, the built-in socket for connecting an external antenna and a slot for memory cards microSD.

 

 

Here now, there are many upgraded USB stick, such as ZTE MF668 and ZTE MF821 available with much high speed and stable connection. If you want to experience better, you can check them on 4gltemall.com .

 

Telekom Speedstick LTE Stick II – Alcatel One Touch L100V

The Telekom Speed Stick II LTE is available since December 2012, and Speed Stick LTE(HUAWEI E398) is still available. The Speed stick II is made by the Chinese manufacturer TCT Mobile, in Germany, the model number is also available under the name Alcatel One Touch L100V. Below you will find all the features and specifications about the Alcatel One touch L100V.

Manual PDF unfortunately not yet available online

 

The Telecom Speed Stick II LTE supports LTE to a total of five frequencies, including the three major band 3/7/20 (800/1800/2600MHz) for Germany. The download speeds can reach to 100 Mbit/s, while the upload up to 50 megabits is possible. When 4G LTE network is not available, Speed stick II LTE can automatically switch to the UMTS and GSM network. On UMTS network, the speed of up to 42.2 Mbit/s can be achieved with the mobile network with the data accelerator DC-HSPA+ is equipped.

 

Compared to the first Speed Stick LTE, the latest version seems to be much cheaper, but perhaps it’s because it’s unfortunately somewhat less well-equipped. In contrast to the Telekom Speed Stick I, Speedstick II LTE missed the connector for an external antenna. But that’s not the only difference: even the USB port is rotatable when LTE Speed Stick II LTE cannot. The workmanship is not as high as the HUAWEI E398 manufactured by Huawei. The common feature is that both them can be upgraded with a MicroSD memory card to the memory stick.

 

 

The idea to use the Speed Stick II LTE is only worthwhile if you currently still has no LTE stick. The device offers all important functions and is a good introduction to the fourth generation of mobile communications. If you want to have a slightly higher quality model or connectors for external antennas, it is better to consider Speed Stick LTE without the “II”, that is HUAWEI E398u-15.

 

Unlocked Speedstick LTE III for Telekom – HUAWEI E3276

Data Overview E3276 Review

 

 

Highlight feature: LTE Category 4

 

 

The German Telekom advertises LTE Speed Stick III, which could actually possibly reach download speed even up to 150 Mbit/s (LTE Category 4). To fulfill this down sream, the LTE network of Telekom must also be upgraded accordingly, but so far it has not happened yet. In Germany, you have to surf at around 100 Mbit/s downstream and 50 Mbit/s upstream, while in many other European or Asian countries, higher speeds are possible. For example, the Swisscom LTE in 2013 with the increased data rate offers since the end of May in Switzerland. For use in other countries, the unlocked Speed Stick III is already very well suited Via LTE frequency bands to support 800/900/1800/2100/2600 and UMTS bands around 850/900/1900/2100 MHz. The Speedstick III is from HUAWEI E3276 USB Stick, and there are many variants for E3276, they are born to support various LTE frequency bands worldwide for all the operators.

HUAWEI E392 Not available in Germany

 

So far, Huawei is the major vendor for LTE and had supplied the major LTE network operators in Germany. Previously, HUAWEI had supplied the Speed Stick LTE for Telekom, and the K5005 for Vodafone, they are from the factory modem named Huawei E398. HUAWEI E392 is actually not a typo, it’s a newer model with a lower number than the older model E398.  The original HUAWEI E392 4G Stick (without logo of Vodafone or Telekom) so far is not available in Germany. Users could get it from 4gltemall.com . The compact USB stick is also LTE Category 3 USB Stick and could completely replace HUAWEI E398.

 

 

 

The stick E392 supports casually pretty much everything that is common to worldwide radio standards. In LTE (4G), E392 stick supports the frequency bands 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Here, in Germany rather LTE800, 1800 and 2600 are relevant. So the HUAWEI E392 could work with other European countries 4G networks. Also the 3G spectrum is almost completely covered. The E392 supports UMTS at 900,1900 and 2100 MHz in the standard DC-HSPA+/ HSPA+/ HSDPA and HSUPA. In the 2G networks users can access in the bands GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz (Quad-band).
Based on the LTE technology, the E392 could transmit data with both FDD and TDD. These are two different duplex methods. For FDD (frequency division duplex), which is common in Germany, there are 2 separate frequency bands to use to send and receive data simultaneously. For TDD (time division duplex), the sending and receiving transmitted on the same frequency band, but slightly delayed. FDD is to be found mainly in Asia. E-Plus also experimented with the technology, and this could perhaps bring in the future for use in Germany.

 

 

Anyone who uses a mobile LTE deal can theoretically explore the full power of the stick. This is a 100 Mbps stick for the download and it can be transmitted with a maximum of 50 Mbps. The HUAWEI E392 has provided two slots (MIMO) for connecting an external antenna. This often brings significant advantages in weak reception areas. The expandability via microSD card (up to 32GB) is now practically available. At just 40 grams of weight is also quite easy to take in hand or pocket.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The Huawei E392 is the perfect travel companion based on the huge range of supported standards. Those who usually travel the world will never be disappointed.
