In my reviews TP-Link 3G Mobile WiFi Router M5250 found suitable for home users, since it supports 21.6 Mbps download and 5.76 Mbps upload speed, which is very nice. TP-Link sells devices unlocked in the market , so there is no problem at all from unlocking side like Huawei and ZTE devices.


Its price is not revealed online on its official website, however upto Rs.6,000/- its a nice device.
