The Speedbox Mini LTE is powered by a new chipset from Huawei HiSilicon, which comes along in 28-nanometer architecture Cortex-A9 architecture and allows the use of LTE CAT6. Furthermore, if the high-speed internet is not available, you can also rely on HSPA (+) with up to 43.2 Mbit/s, and EDGE and GPRS are also supported.
