Test Report for 4G LTE Modem HUAWEI E398 Keywords: HUAWEI E398, HUAWEI E398u-11, huawei 4g lte surfstick, 4g usb modem, test for HUAWEI E398, HUAWEI E398 Review, huawei 4g modem.LTE mobile internet service appeared in the Plus in November 2011. The operatorpraises its offer as "the fastest mobile Internet in the world". Check it out in a test thatwe conducted in Warsaw in several locations.Before we get into the performance tests, there are a few words about the technologyLTE. LTE or Long Term Evolution is the next step in the development of cellular networks,called fourth-generation network. It gives a theoretical speed of up to 100-300 Mbit/swhile maintaining very low latency. Thus it is well suited for services that require fasttransfer and rapid response networks, such as voice and video, games via the Internetand Video on Demand. LTE networks operate on different frequency bands from 800MHz to 2600 MHz. Network Plus runs on the 1800 MHz band.
In a new set of Huawei E398 4G LTE USB modem get supplied with the USIM cardLTE. Huawei E398 is equipped with a microSD slot and can be used as a portable USBflash drive. In addition to the card slot, E398 has two connectors for MIMO externalantenna. Since we were at the disposal of the antenna from another, previouslytested HUAWEI E392 4G LTE modem, it is also suitable for HUAWEI E398 4G modem tosee how this will affect the transmission parameters. The test antenna pigtail gave about10-20 percent increase download speeds and significant, even double increase theupload speed.
HUAWEI E398 Modem can be connected with two external antennasSoftware installation went without problems. When you click on the drive icon beganthe iPlus Manager updated to version 2.4. In some common version of HUAWEI E398,it’s green Mobile Partner. After a while, the drivers are installed and the whole thing wasready to go.Tests moved around to various good and services that require high-speed transfers, weused the Speedtest.net. IPlus LTE Test on PCFirst, Downloading files from the server 4glterouter.de located in Germany and serverslocated in the center Waszawie ATM. We have obtained the average transfers around 25Mbit/s downstream and 2.3 Mbit/s when sending. Noteworthy is a very small oscillatingping usually around 22-24ms value. Average download Average upload Ping 25.2 Mbit / s 2.3 Mbit / s 24msSecond, playing Games on the biggest game center
The service is one of several new services running in the cloud, which allow you to playonline games installed on remote servers. There are such hits as Crysis2, FIFA, Battlefield2, The Witcher 2 and many others. Interestingly, even in the most demanding games canbe played on a relatively weak computer without a dedicated graphics card. What ismore important, is the good speed, which is able to transmit commands from the mouseand keyboard so fast that the player has not felt the delay in the operation of thegame. Tests of Crysisem2 were successful - I played this game on your own computerand admit that it was quick to play! Form reacted quickly and the resolution wassufficient to see small details.3rd, Speedtest
IPlus LTE Test - SpeedtestSpeedtest typically showed a speed of up to 35 Mbit/s, though there were in excess ofthe results of up to 40 Mbit/s or less than 25 Mbit/s. Also we managed to get impressiveupload moments of over 25 Mbit/s.
4th, Video Skypevideo calls via Skype went smoothly. The condition is good for both sides of the link line.5th Youtube - full HDNo any problem happened to launch on 2 monitors 3 videos Youtube in HD 1080p.6th iPlus Neostrada LTE vs. 20 Mbit / sFastest Neostrada now offer ADSL speed is 20 Mbit/s; the operator introduces VDSLsolutions, but in our area it’s not available. How do you compare the fixed Neostradaand LTE? Virtually all the indicators are in favor Plus. The transfer rate is greater butpings are smaller. Neostrada, despite the theoretical speed of 20 Mbit/s, sync grabs at15 Mbit/s in practice, gives about 12 Mbit/s transfer sometimes.
SummaryPlus LTE is the fastest network tested by us offering mobile Internet. Sometimes inexcess of the transfer of 40 Mbit/s, we can instantly download the files. Also, the uploadspeed is very good. If you do not need contracts with iPus, there are unlocked HUAWEIE398 4G Modems selling on www.4gltemall.com. If you are not sure whether LTE willoperate in your location, you need to have a look at the map: 4gmap.info or contact usvia email. The test results were very good, and therefore can offer LTE for all users whoare looking for high-speed Internet.
