Sierra AirCard 330U 4G LTE - Rogers Rocket Stick

The Internet-stick market - that precarious data Avenue only - may be small, but it is also important for users, the portable high-speed Internet access need all the time. While smartphone tethering can do the job for most, is the Internet still stick by individuals and companies that would rather just pay for data, or would be used for the fastest data.

The AirCard 330U Rogers is the follow up to the successful 313U. Both are developed LTE-enabled devices from Sierra Wireless, both have a strong swivel design. But has only the 330U over 2600MHz capabilities available to the extent, adds 15-20Mbps average LTE connection.

We get typical speeds of about 32Mbps down and 9Mbps up, although occasionally, as you'll see in the video above, the contrast is very strong, with the 313U and 330U the older Bell Novatel Ovation U679 besting more than 30Mbps.

The 330U reaches higher speeds by incorporating the 2600MHz band in its existing spectrum 700Mhz/AWS ability, Rogers has a bit of that in his rocket 2600MHz Stick devices deliver faster performance using LTE, if available. We say, where available ", because at such a high frequency signal is more prone to distortion and interference from objects such as thick walls.

It is also not recover as well as lower frequency signals when presented with multipath propagation, which is the result of radio waves bounce off buildings and in contact with other signals. Lower signals can survive the trip through cement, glass and other obstacles better than higher frequencies can. Rogers involving both low (1700/2100Mhz) and high (2600MHz) means that it will be a decent signal in the rule, even if speeds are not so high. Things will only improve if the Government. Auctions from the 700Mhz spectrum later this year, so that really LTE smartphones and mobile internet sticks

You can see that in areas where the 2600MHz signal is not active, results between the 313U and 330U are largely identical. Where the 2600MHz band is in use, as you can see in the video below, results tip over 50Mbps. Bell network, with the Ovation U679 Novaltel, has an advantage in the uplink, but not close either Rogers sticks come in the downlink.
