In my reviews, Vodafone K5008z 4G LTE device is not a good product, since it does not support WiFi. You can use Vodafone K5008z 4G ZTE LTE Data-Card in Windows, Linux as well as MAC PCs. Its online price is $269.00 presently, which is too high. Hence, if you are planning to purchase a new modem / router then Huawei E5372 4G LTE router is better than any another device.
