ZTE MF60 HSPA+ Pocket WiFi Review

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: September 8, 2011

We featured this HSPA+ capable mobile hotspot from ZTE a few weeks ago and we've finally gotten a review unit to test. Like many other pocket WiFi (MiFi) devices before it, the ZTE MF60 is one pretty kick-ass unit. If only it were more affordable. The ZTE MF60 looks like your typical portable mobile hotspot device -- small, lightweight, bar soap shaped 3G/WiFi router. Unlike the previous ones we've seen and reviewed here, this one actually supports HSPA+ networks -- just like the Tonino Lamborghini Tattoo stick and the Smart Bro Rocket. That means you can theoretically reach as fast…

ZTE MF80 goes up to 42Mbps for 10 users

Relevance: 52%      Posted on: June 16, 2012

The update to the ZTE MF60 pocket WiFi is now faster. The ZTE MF80 is the model equivalent of the Huawei E587 and promises support for HSPA+ networks up to 42Mbps. To learn more about the ZTE pocket WiFi line-up, check out our full review of the ZTE MF60 here. Most of the features found on the MF80 were already present in the MF60. What the MF80 improved on is the support for high-speed mobile internet of up to 42Mbps. Of course, that can only be achieved if your telco also offers speeds near to that figure. The MF80 now…

YugaDeals: ZTE MF62 HSPA+ 21Mbps Pocket WiFi

Relevance: 49%      Posted on: March 12, 2012

I've been using the ZTE MF60 for several months now and been bringing it in foreign trips so I was glad we were able to get it and feature it on YugaDeals for a discounted price. You can read my review here which includes some speed tests with a Smart Bro SIM (hitting 7.5Mbps on off peak hours). The original street price used to be Php7,500 but it has somewhat gone down to just Php6,380. The YugaDeals price is Php1,000 off or just Php5,380 (this is for a newer ZTE MF62 variant). Check it out here.

Hands-on: ZTE MF90 LTE Pocket WiFi

Relevance: 47%      Posted on: March 17, 2014

The successor to the ZTE MF80 pocket WiFi from 2 years ago is the new ZTE MF90 which is now an LTE modem as well. This new model was officially released last month by MSI-ECS. The previous model supported HSPA+ networks with speeds of up to 42Mbps (prior to that we had the ZTE MF60). During that time, telcos have already deployed their HSPA+ network and we were getting a good 10-12Mbps using the pocket WiFi. Having used the MF60 and the MF80, it would seem that ZTE does not have some sort of design signature in every pocket WiFi…

Globe Tattoo Superstick now up to 7Mbps

Relevance: 46%      Posted on: October 16, 2011

Don't exactly know when they rolled this out but just saw that Globe Telecom has upgraded their Tattoo Superstick and now offers up to 7Mbps on the WiFi device. They're still offering the Globe MyFi but that's just up to 3.6Mbps or 5Mbps depending on your postpaid plan. By the looks of it, the Globe Tattoo Superstick uses the ZTE MF60 we reviewed here a few weeks back. The device comes free with a postpaid plan of Php1,299 per month, locked in for 24 months with 200 free SMS allocation a month. The Tattoo Superstick is an HSPA+ device so…

ZTE’s HSPA+ Pocket WiFi selling for Php7,500

Relevance: 40%      Posted on: August 26, 2011

Looks like an HSPA+ capable pocket WiFi is now available in the grey market -- we spotted one a week ago over at TPC, a ZTE MF60 4G, selling for Php7,500. The device works the same as the old portable WiFi devices, only that this model supports the new HSPA+ network from both Globe and Smart -- and as such has the possibility to reach the 10Mbps or 12Mbps downlink speeds of the telco. ZTE MF60 4G MiFi Router HSDPA/HSUPA/UMTS 850/1900/2100 MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 MHz HSPA+: DL 21.6Mbps, UL 5.76Mbps WCDMA CS: 64Kbps UL/DL WCDMA PS: 384Kbps UL/DL WiFi Standard:…

Choiix Powerfort Portable Battery Pack

Relevance: 33%      Posted on: September 13, 2011

We're seen so many portable battery packs these days and they keep coming in different size, shape and power capacity. There's another one that's supposed to be released locally and comes from Choiix (part of the Cooler Master group). They sent me samples a couple of weeks ago and been using them with my portable devices everyday. They've got a couple of variants -- the 1500mAh entry-level and the 2700mAh travel kit. The 2700mAh variant, which comes with the travel kit, includes a car charger and USB-to-mini-USB connectors. There are no special adaptors included so expect to only be able…

Is the Huawei E586 the Smart Rocket WiFi Plus?

Relevance: 31%      Posted on: October 7, 2011

I have been told by a reliable source that the Huawei E586 could be the pocket WiFi used by Smart for the Rocket WiFi Plus. The press release says it's going to ride on their HSPA+ network so this looks like it. We borrowed this unlocked Huawei E586 from an independent seller to check if it's going to be the one that will be offered when the Smart Rocket WiFi Plus finally arrives. Huawei E586 HSPA+ Pocket WiFi: HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS 21.1Mbps downlink, 5.76Mbps uplink WiFi 802.11 b/g/n Li-Ion battery 1500mAh 32GB storage via microSD card I've only been testing it since…

Checking out HSPA+ networks in Hong Kong

Relevance: 29%      Posted on: September 15, 2011

We're spending a night here in Hong Kong and on our way to China to visit the manufacturing plants of GE/Agfa tomorrow. So instead of getting hotel WiFi, I also bought a prepaid SIM card and paired it with the ZTE MF60 just to check how's the HSPA+ networks are like around here. For lack of prior research, I got the PCCW card from the nearest 7-11 store here. After plugging it to the pocket WiFi, it immediately added the correct APN settings and detected an HSPA+ signal. Here's what I got from SpeedTest.net: Not bad at all. The upload…

Huawei E586 Review

Relevance: 23%      Posted on: December 7, 2011

The HSPA+ network of Smart and Globe are continuously growing and getting wider coverage around the country. Devices like the Huawei E586 maximizes the speed of the HSPA+ network (just like the ZTE MF60). Check out our full review after the jump. I've been using Huawei's MyFi devices for years now and have seen similar ones offered by other manufacturers (see our Huawei E5 Pocket WiFi review and the ZTE MF60 review). This newer model, the E586, supports HSPA+ networks with speeds up to 21Mbps. I've used this device in a lot of the foreign trips I had this quarter…
