…a LTE mobile access point, or “mi-fi”.
There’s been lots of excitement about the iPhone 5 supporting 1800Mhz LTE, perfect for EE’s deployment in the UK. But, forget about new handsets, tablets and USB dongles for a minute.
Almost every gadget you already own is wifi enabled. Why spend vast amounts of dosh on making this LTE friendly while the market isn’t fully developed?
Stick a LTE capable mi-fi in your bag and you’re ready to take advantage of the faster data service on your existing kit – your laptop, your phone, your tablet, your camera, etc.

Do you know whether the EE LTE network offers native IPv6? If it doesn’t, I expect anything behind a mi-fi type device will find their traffic passing through at least two layers of NAT and maybe more.
Very good question, Leo…
Or get a iPhone 5 LTE and use the personal hotspot feature to connect your various devices – then you don’t have to carry a extra device around that can get lost…
And run out of power before teatime!
