Hi team,

I'm after a couple Mobile 3G hotspots (Not Huawei), that will work on as many cell networks as possible.  If they have battery backup, even better. 

Any ideas?

huawei e5756 which support dc-hspa+ if you not after LTE. else huawei e589 which support almost all LTE band standard but not really useful imo since LTE not widely available yet.

both models shld give u very decent 10 hrs connection time.

however, if u wanna avoid huawei then ur options will be very limited.

If your lucky, you might be able to get a quad band Netcom wireless hotspot from a Telecom Store.
