HUAWEI E5331 Mobile WiFi supports 3G UMTS 900/2100Mhz, and it seems it’s more apt for European area. Different from HUAWEI E586 and E560, it support maximum 8 users to share the network. And the operation icon is more simple, just one button on the front. There is no LED screen display, just 4 indicators with the power button.
