Ive broken my previous hotspot. So looking for a new one.

The last one had no 900MHz 3g so was pretty lousy on VF, but great on spark with it being 850.

Anyway, its time to move to 4G and I would like to get 5GHz wifi since when I tried using the hotspot around the city it was useless on wifi but fine when teathered with the USB cable to the laptop. 802.11ac would be even better but probably not needed.

So since I basically operate on a stick whatever sim is closest to expiry in and then top it up to get data, it could be any network I go for when I want to use it. So ideally I would have all the 3G bands and 700MHz and the others on 4G. If a device like that exists.

Any pointers to a suitable one?

Spark MF910 has 700MHz band 28 and 5G WiFi. Note it's not dual WiFi, either 2.4 or 5.
