XCom Global Huawei 3G E176G USB Modem Review

This Spring we got the opportunity to work with the Huawei model E176G 3G USB dongle connected to XCom Global for mobile data.

While most people are lucky enough to receive high-speed internet via cable, fiber, or LTE, the carriers need serious backhaul in order to provide that to customers on a consistent basis.
