From the appearance, it’s hard to find differences with the B2000. On the front body, there is Vodafone logo, however, on the back stock, we can find the it’s based on the new version of the B593 from Huawei, the label indicates the model is B593s-22. The most important innovation: The LTE modem can now also handle LTE category 4. Therefore, theoretically it can achieve data rates of 150Mbps. However, LTE CAT4 is currently only available in urban centers, i.e big cities with over 100 thousand residents.

Unfortunately, Wi-Fi with AC standard is not yet on the list of specifications. Users must therefore continue to take a maximum of 802.11n to be surf. What’s more, the B3000 provides 4 LAN ports on the back along with 2 USB ports.


Telephone and reception


Through two RJ11 jacks, analog telephones can be operated via VOIP. A SIP client is integrated. Since IP telephone with LTE for home is not a shortcoming, demanding users will however still rather resort to a Fritz box, as regards this point. In terms of wireless network compatibility, the B3000 could support all major LTE bands in Europe, including LTE FDD 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz and TDD 2600MHz.


In addition, of course, it would work well with all relevant 3G and 2G predecessor standards, including the 3G data turbo DC-HSDPA+, which allowed data rates of up to 42.2 Mbit/s. The Vodafone B3000 doesn’t have SIM lock, so it can be used to beyond Germany or user can change provider to other network operators.


The first New customers will receive the B3000 since about April 2014. Now the Vodafone B3000 is available on www.4gltemall.com at good price. Since it’s already one year, here now there are more new LTE wireless routers available with new features, such as Vodafone B4000, Huawei E5186.
