This looks like a nice Wifi router (have just ordered it here in Norway).
http://www.huaweidevice.com/worldwide/productFeatures.do?pinfoId=3515&directoryId=5009&treeId=3619&tab=0

It supports up to 150 Mbit/s downstream and 50 Mbit/s upstream over LTE.

Will this device work on Vodafone network in NZ with 4G, 3G and Edge?

As far as I know the 4G network on Vodafone uses the 1800 Mhz band, so the Huawei should work for that.

Not sure what the max speed on the Vodafone network is.

That link doesnt show what frequency the device uses.

From this website it shows it supports FDD 1800MHZ, so it should work fine with
Vodafones LTE network. It also supports 900/2100 MHZ for their 3G coverage.

So, could actually get good use of this Huawei in New Zealand then, thats nice to know. Now its just a matter of getting coverage.

Will be getting the chance to try out LTE in New Zealand with this router when I am in Auckland in august, that will be fun.
