How does a 4G router work and what does it do?
4G routers pick up internet just like your phone does, they’re just more powerful. They use the 4G mobile network instead of standard phone lines or cables, so you don’t need a fixed landline.
How do 5G routers work?
5G routers work exactly like 4G routers: they use the mobile network to get you connected to the internet. The difference is that 5G routers can connect to the best available network (5G), switching between 4G and 5G to provide you with the optimal broadband speed.
Is a 4G router better than hotspot?
If you need consistent broadband, getting a 4G router is better than using your mobile hotspot. EE 4G routers give you a significantly better signal with a 30m WiFi range, and you can connect up to 32 devices at once – hotspot isn’t strong enough for this.
How do you know if your router is 5G?
To get connected to the 5G mobile network, you need a 5G specific router and good coverage in your area. The good news is, EE has more 5G locations than any other network in the UK! We offer two 5G devices with various data plans: the Smart 5G Hub and the 5G WiFi. Check your EE coverage here.
