Do I need a 3G, 4G LTE or a 5G WiFi router?

The rapid evolution of wireless mobile communication has experienced an exponential growth over the last 30 years, from 1G to 4G LTE, 4GX and 5G today. With the rapid emergence of data hungry applications, a fast and reliable wireless 4G or 5G modem router with SIM card slot can provide you with a stable and lightning-fast internet connection, so you can enjoy a seamless browsing experience. What are the benefits of 4G LTE, 4GX and 5G over their predecessors’ technologies?

  • 1. Faster download speeds:

    While 4G networks can deliver fast data rates with speeds of up to 150Mbps using LTE Cat 4 devices, and up to 300Mbps using LTE Cat 6 devices, 5G networks can deliver lightning fast data rates of up to 8Gbps providing one of the best online experience. That is why upgrading to a 5G Gigabit Ethernet Router is paramount to achieve these lightning-fast speeds, via a secure VPN connection over the 4G/5G VPN network.

  • 2. Faster upload speeds:

    The latest 4G LTE networks can deliver upload speeds of up to 50Mbps, nearly 20 times higher than those of 3G technologies. 5G networks can deliver upload speeds of up to 900Mbps, giving you some of the best online experiences. To take advantage of these super-fast speeds, a 4G or 5G capable Wi-Fi modem router with Gigabit ethernet ports is needed.

  • 3. Faster response times:

    One major benefit of 4G and 5G Ethernet routers is faster response times, or lower latency. Currently, the response time on a 3G connection is approximately 100ms (milliseconds). This is now reduced to approximately 20ms on a 4G LTE connection and 10ms on a 5G connection.

  • 4. Better coverage:

    4G, 4GX and 5G wireless technologies offer a far better coverage, allowing a better signal penetration inside buildings for a better indoor reception. The band B28 (700MHz) low-frequency radio bandwidth, also known as Telstra 4GX and Optus 4G Plus, as well as the B5 (850MHz) low-frequency radio bandwidth known as Vodafone 4G+, can reach much longer distances than high-frequency bands and are better at penetrating solid obstacles like buildings. Low frequencies allow you to achieve one of the best coverage especially in rural areas, giving you much better indoor WiFi receptions. This can be enhanced by the use of an external antenna especially in marginal areas. Enjoy reliable coverage and high internet speeds with our 5G and 4G modem routers with SIM card slots.

Should i get a VPN capable 5G and 4G LTE router?

If you are using a wireless router with SIM card slot, it is highly recommended, for online security and peace of mind, to have the router with VPN capabilities. This can help protect the devices connected to the router by ensuring all information is transmitted over an encrypted tunnel, eliminating the chance of your data being compromised as you access the internet.
