I bought a sim card from an mobile provider, and I can use it as a hotspot, using my cellphone. So, I can make my cellphone into a hotspot router, using this sim card. Do you have some recommendations on which router (a proper piece of hardware, not a cellphone) would work with 4G sim card, as a hotspot router? The 4G+ is written on the provider's site, if I find more info on bands I will have them written here.

  • Do you have any idea the bands your SIM operator operates on? – Dhruva Jul 16 '18 at 5:31
  • In regards to bands, 4G+ is written. If I find something else, I will update the question more. – Vladimir Despotovic Jul 16 '18 at 8:04
  • Why do you want a separate piece of hardware as opposed to just using your phone? – JMY1000 Jul 17 '18 at 0:57
  • @JMY1000 because I do! :) Haha, well, because it gets really hot, and I only love myself and my best girl to be hot :) not a stupid iPhone..... ;) – Vladimir Despotovic Jul 17 '18 at 6:55
  • Getting hot isn't really an issue most of the time, I'd strongly recommend just using your phone. – JMY1000 Jul 18 '18 at 2:19

I Think you're looking for something like one of the following:

1) TP-Link M7350 Mobile Router

2) Huawei E5577

Bonus: If you're not on a tight budget here's one of my favorites the Netgear AC810-100.

Hope this helps.

  • Thanks, even though, the first one costs around 100 euros, right? – Vladimir Despotovic Jul 21 '18 at 22:05
  • It all depends on country and stores.. For Example: in the Italian Amazon Store, the TP-Link costs around 79,99€ - in the English site (.co.uk) it goes from 74,49£ to 79,99£ (that converted in €s it’s 89€ ~). From my experience, Huawei tents to keep the price a little bit lower than other vendors, but most of the phone carriers use the Huawei network chip for their “branded” 4G router, so even tho you’d cheap out a little, you won’t sacrifice quality. Obviously those 3 are not the only 4G routers out there, so if you find one that better fits your need, feel free to go for it :) – EdwardKirk Jul 22 '18 at 9:59
