Summary: I am giving it a 2 star rating at this point because where we are located in South America I have not been able to get more than a 2G connection with it. I purchased it because it was listed as an unlocked 3G Broadband Router Hot Spot, which is what I was looking for.
Summary: purchased for my husband to use on trips, pleasantly surprised at how well it works. I was hesitant to order because some people had said it was hard to set up... not at all. My husband said it's pretty much "plug-n-play".
Summary: APN is the key to use this. When you put the SIM card inside. Make sure you go from a computer connected to the wifi of the device to 192.168.1.1 (as directed in the manual) and set up a profile for the network you are going to use.
