Yes 4G and Gadget man dream car
Also provided free with the Preve CFE is YES 4G Huddle (pix). This a wireless broadband modem with the ability to connect to your devices such as phones, tablet or notebook through wi-fi. If purchased on its own this modem will cost you around RM399 not including subscription.
I have no problem setting this up. After slight confusion about SSID password which has the letter 0 and O and letter I and l the connection through wi-fi and to YES broadband went smoothly. In 5 minutes all was running. Fixed charger, in-car charger and in-car holder comes with the unit.
In my area the connection is either poor (RED Led) or good (Yellowish LED). Using P1 speedtest managed to get speed of 4 mbps for download and 1.5 mbps for upload. Actually the YES 4G is rated to maxout at 20 mbps. In comparison to my unifi fixed broadband the speedtest reading is 6mbps for download and 4 mbps for upload. My initial impression is that the speed of this YES Huddle unit is quite good.
According to YES the battery need to be charged to about 2 hours for maximum charging and can be used for up to 5 hours on standalone. I have yet to test this out.
One year subscription of RM60 monthly comes free with this package. For the amount of RM60 per month this equates to 2GBit of data per month. Since me and my wife already subscribed to Celcom broadband for my phone and for her laptop most probably this unit will end up with my daughter. She already wink wink !!!.
