The ZTE MF93D 4G mobile hotspot device has the capability to handle a maximum speed of 100 Mega Bits per second and acts as a 4G mobile router providing 4G connectivity for up to 10 additional devices including phones, tablets, PCs, laptops and dongles.
The MF93D incorporates Qualcomm’s latest LTE chips and supports all 4G frequency bands used in Europe , 3G frequency bands and dual-band 2.4G / 5GHz WiFi networks. Notable improvements over first generation uFi devices are improved battery capacity ( now 2800 mAh ), lower power consumption and improved heat dissipation.
A standout feature of the new 4G mobile hotspot device is that it comes with a 1.4 inch touchscreen and is compatible with all uFi monitors - which when connected to the MF93D - can be used to access the 4G mobile internet.
