ZTE 86694801 – MF823 Sim Free 4G Dongle
Fast than a speeding mullet I live 100 metres from a Three mast, so have used their data service as my sole indoor broadband connection for about five years now. My previous dongle was an Huawei E353 from Three which gave around 4-6 Mbps average, plugging in the new MF823 has seen the data rate shoot up to 24Mbs connected to the same mast. This is on a ‘3G+’ connection, not 4G. (Green led, not blue).I’ve plugged the dongle into a TP-Link MR3420 wifi router which now powers my VOIP phones and wifi internet. I’m on a grand-father-rights old Three 15 GB per month contract so this is now very cheap compared to BT phone line, plus broadband.There was no set-up involved, I plugged it straight into the router, and off it went after clicking ‘connect’. To fine tune the set-up I added Google DNS to the 3G setup screen. It’s 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52On a Windows PC the ‘modem’ installs device drivers, then brings up the ZTE config page in a web browser. The SIM should install the APN settings…
Super fast speed ! 0
