Hands-On: Huawei B593 LTE WiFi Router

Hands-On: Huawei B593 LTE WiFi Router

If you have an LTE signal in your area and you want to maximize the fast speed for a 24/7 LAN operation, the Huawei B593 LTE might be the best device to deploy this.

We had the B593 for about a month now and have tested it with both Globe and Smart LTE (more often with Globe since Smart LTE has weak or no LTE signal in the house, condo and the office).

The device is intended/labeled for T-Mobile but since it is unlocked, we’re able to use it with local carriers. We’ve also tried the 3G/HSPA+ WiFi router (Huawei B683) before and have been well satisfied with it.

We used the Smart Prepaid LTE and got a Globe Postpaid LTE Nano-SIM with Plan 999 with SuperSurf and both worked just fine.


Aside from the 4 LAN ports at the back, there’s also a USB 2.0 port so you can attached a HDD or flash drive for access to network storage.

For better signal strength, there’s an also a plug for an external antenna to boost the signal. If there’s no LTE in the area, it will switch to HSPA+/HSPA/3G automatically.

We went to test out the connection via Speedtest.net and got pretty good results. Take note the results are limited to Globe LTE in our area (Makati and BGC).

The device is available over at HotGadgets for Php9,980 but if you need the panel antenna, it is sold separately for Php2,200 (with 15meter cable and adaptors).

      SUSMARYOSEP! Panay copy-paste at plagiarized articles all over the internet lang naman yung laman ng basura mong “website”. Mas masahol ka pa kay @Bob Freking kasi siya at least nilalagay nya yung source ng pinagkuhanan niya ng articles kahit copy-pasted. Eh ikaw, magnananakaw ka na nga lang ng article sa ibang sikat na website, inaangkin mo pa na ikaw ang gumawa ng mga tsekwang article dyan sa bulok mong “website”.

      Have some shame at the least, dude.

      I gonna report your website to those websites where you stole your website’s contents from so that you’ll say goodbye to your heinous spamming.

    This is actually a pretty good idea, I use my pocket wifi as my main wifi so this would improve my range and the no. of people to connect to my network. And I can finally use the pocket wifi for its original purpose

    I would expect much better out of an expensive device as the one listed on this article.

  8. Sara says:

    I bought the B593 router without external antenna attached, to boost the signal, I have to buy the antenne. After searching I found a site to sell orignal B593 antenna http://www.store4g.com/huawei-b593-antenna/, is it really original? If yes, then I would buy a pair of that. Do any one know the antenna?
