Huawei E182E

Reviewed on Thursday June 20, 2013 by , Wales, UK
I've just picked up an unlocked vodaphone branded E182E to replace an old and failing E220. The E220 was flashed to 7.2Mbps, but never went over 2Mbps, the E182E just clocked 5. I've not had it very long, but it seems to connect just fine and stay one once I'd managed to set it up properly, which wasn't plug and play. It runs barely warm so I can only assume those with hot modems have faulty ones. With the old E220, there was a big difference in speed between ISPs using the same transmitter, often painfully slow. For those who have bad modems, you don't need a new contract to replace the modem, just swap the sim into another one. If your service is still pants, then it's your isp, not the modem. It's advisable to uninstall the old one before installing a new one. Those with issues may want to try uninstalling/reinstalling. 4 stars due to being a PITA to install. It's great after that.

Slow & Unreliable

I have had the E182e for 2-1/2 yrs now and it is a very poor piece of equipment! Like most of the rest of the reviewers here, my stick keeps dropping the connection, multiple times EVERY day and most every time I need to be online for more than a few minutes (5-15)! I live less than 200 metres from a Telus sub-station equipped with fibre optics and Telus can't even provide a high speed dial-up connection, because more than 1o years after they upgraded the lines along the highway corridor, they still haven't upgraded the residential service wires! I have been told by a Telus employee that the Fibre Optics are for internal and corporate connections along the HWY 16 BC route- NOT for us normal consumers!!!

I used to have a Hughes Satellite set-up, but since Galaxy took over the Canadian service the connection speeds (I have 3 friends still using them) have plummeted to less than 1MBS- Yes- less than ONE MB per second for both uploads and downloads.

If I could, I would throw the Huawei into the septic field where it belongs...
