The Huawei B315s-22 is a 4G router for family use. Like its predecessor Huawei B593s-22, it allows sharing the 4G connection in WIFI with a valid SIM card from a network operator, and of course, the SIM card must has a data plan. Thus, in places where ADSL is of poor quality but 4G is available, it would be necessary to replace the ADSL and use the new Huawei B315s-22 with new contract from 4G network provider.

Our Opinion about Huawei B315
The Huawei B315s-22 is an excellent 4G router. The main difference with the HUAWEI B593s-22 is that it has better 4G reception, it only has one RJ11 port, it does not support the SIP protocol and it does not allow the router to use only the 4G. Thus, if the 4G/LTE signal is not very powerful, it switches itself in 3G or worse in 2G. However, you can connect an external 4G/LTE antenna to change this situation. You can connect a phone using the RJ11 jack (you need a T/Rj11 adapter if you have an old handset) to make calls using the sim card number 06 or 07 (If it is not just a data card).
For most cases, the Huawei B315s-22 is enough for most users with the support of LTE download speed to 150mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. But if there is LTE advanced or LTE-A pro network available, it’s also better to try the latest Huawei E525, Huawei E5186 or Huawei B618 Routers. We suppose one of them would definitely meet your demand for home or office wireless network.
