Great value modem

published

All good for sub 25, great value and this one can act as a wifi extender too. The only disadvantage is this wifi is cat 4 speed. A very reliable modem.

Purchased in February 2018 for $24.50.

Works perfectly and hasn't missed a beat

Bought this through Optus as a replacement for the clunky unreliable Telstra ADSL. We have line of sight to an Optus tower and man this thing is quick! It also has very good wifi coverage and covers our entire house just as good as a full sized modem router. Its very compact and has a good app to manage account details. I also leave it plugged in to a charger full time with no issues. No more dropouts, delays etc etc. Just don't have as much data.

Simple but effective

Purchased this 4G modem as a replacement for my old 3G one. It was quick and simple to set up with my existing SIM and has been reliable so far. I don't play games or stream movies but for browsing the net it appears to work well.

Recommended 4G wifi modem!

Bought this for my mobile broadband sim and it works fine. Fast and battery lasts 6 hours of use. No problem at all even if i connected my laptop and 3 phones.

Questions & Answers

Vladan M.asked

In order to protect the battery life can I take the battery out of the unit when it (E5573 4G) is used at home? Many thanks, Vlad

I am at a loss as to why you would want to take the battery out off the unit, it would be better to just switch off the device. If you aren't using the device at home and it isn't connecting to the internet the device will automatically go to sleep anyway, taking a battery out makes no difference as a battery runs down automatically if it isn't charged regularly.

How long does or should my HUAWEI E5573 4G modem itself last?

That will depend on the condition of the battery and how many charge cycles it has gone through. From a relatively new battery you should expect a day on standby and at least 6 hours in use. With this type of modem though after a certain amount of time on standby it will turn itself off unless you have it plugged into a powerpoint.

It will work for any PC or Mac if the computer has wi-fi connection. It does NOT have an Ethernet connection.
