Huawei B593 = Telekom Speedbox LTE

As usual, the routers for Telekom and Vodafone are in difference label. To identify the devices, the appearance of the
router is usually slightly modified (eg, color or some ports) and the logo of the mobile provider is customized for
respect providers. The Speedbox LTE is in black color like Speedport LTE, while Vodafone B2000 is in white. But
actually, they are the same model from HUAWEI B593, more accurately, the model number is B593u-12 LTE
CPE. From the label on the back of the router, we can see the details.


The previous model Speedport LTE still belongs to the first Generation of LTE routers which were available in late
2010. Unfortunately, accordingly to the feedback from users, the Speedport LTE is not successful 4G equipment. LTE
terminals were still scarce; therefore it had to be functional. The new version Speedbox LTE finally brings long
overdue with new features and improvements.

First, the Speedbox is also backward compatible with 3G and 2G networks. This is important in case LTE is not
available around. This features help Speedbox automatically revert to the next fastest standard. Previously, customers
had to unfortunately live with a total failure, because the fall-back function was not anticipated at the Speedport. In
addition, the router B593u-12 now dominates the LTE frequency bands at 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz. The predecessor
was only designed for LTE800, ie designed for rural areas. The maximum data rate of HUAWEI B593u-12 is doubled to
100 Mbit/s downstream and 50 Mbit/s for upload. Beyond is a new USB port and connection for phones. Both analog
telephone and VOIP should be possible.
Since, as already mentioned, the old Speedport is only capable of a wireless standard that Telekom provides far from
two different modes. When choosing between the "Speedport LTE" and "Speedport HSPA", the router Speedbox will
choose depending on which standard is more available to the customer. This features is smart for the users who are
not familiar with 4G Routers.

The Speedbox is available in the Telekom retail stores and online store without LTE
contracts. Many users prefer unlocked Speedbox, or more honestly, they would choose the factory model HUAWEI
B593u-12 because they are just logo or appearance difference, functions are all the same and original factory model is
SIM free for any operators.
