HUAWEI E397 (E397u-X) Multi-mode 4G USB Modem Review

As we introduced HUAWEI E398 LTE Surfstick and HUAWEI E392 4G LTE USB Modem, HUAWEI E397 Multi-mode 4G LTE Modem is also incorporated with different model numbers such as HUAWEI E397u-56, HUAWEI E397u-501, HUAWEI E397u-7, HUAWEI E397u-53. So what’s the difference of them? Or accurately, what’s their 4G LTE Bands?

Per our indicated before for HUAWEI E398 and E392, the HUAWEI 4G LTE Modems seems a little complex, not only on the new technology application, but also the design. The different model number is for different providers to release in different markets due to the networks status vary. For HUAWEI E397 4G modem, it’s first released to the market by the Canada provider Telus at the beginning of 2012. Per our information, we suppose the model number should be E397u-7, but can’t make sure.
