FRITZ!Box 6820 LTE Router Review

The FRITZ!Box 6820 LTE Router is not the usual plug into a phone line router, instead this is a mobile router that allows you to pop a SIM card in and do away with a fixed line completely.

It is nicely styled in white and red and is a compact little unit that could easily be taken away on trips.  It takes a standard sized SIM card and this goes into the bottom of the unit, along with the power.  Around the back are a couple of setup buttons and an Ethernet port and around the front are a row of status lights.

It looks very much like a little router, but the setup is a little different, there is no need to plug this into a telephone socket but may need to enter your mobile networks access details.

Setup is completed via the web interface.  At the time of review the FRITZ!Box 6820 LTE Router was running FRITZ!OS 6.40.  This OS is what sets the 6820 apart from something like a mobile hotspot creator as it offers a huge amount of functionality.  It’s works well and is easy to use, to get up and running and then has lots of functionality to explore.

It’s great to see the interface has been designed with new users in mind, it has lots of explanation about the features and functions available and you can do things like set time restrictions or enter details of your mobile data package.

Overall performance will of course depend on the mobile network you use and the signal strength in your area.  On the EE network the download speed was consistently about 20 Mbps and provided the same experience as if using fixed line broadband.

The high price means for many that don’t require lots of the functionality a lower cost mobile hotspot would be worth considering as an alternative, but for those looking for a dedicated mobile router this is a very simple to use bit of kit with lots of functionality.
