ONE, a provider of Fixed Line Broadband and Mobile Broadband is proud to announce our support of the new Huawei E1762 Mobile Broadband USB modem.
This latest device from the popular and fast-growing Huawei hardware manufacturer replaces the previous E169 and E160 Devices.
The features of the E1762 include:
- Native Intel Mac OSX 10.3 to 10.6 Snow Leopard support (the E169 supported 10.3 – 10.5, and only worked in Snow Leaopard via a hack)
- Support for Windows 2000 through to Windows 7
- Support for GPRS, WCDMA, and 3G HSDPA mobile technologies
The device is technically capable of speeds up to 7.6 Megabits per second download speed, however the current network only supports up to a maximum of 3.6Mbps, and the device is completely happy at that speed.
The modem, which is in the form of a USB Key, is small enough to fit in your pocket and carry with you on the go. It has an opening on the side allowing insertion of an external antenna for improved signal in rural areas, as well as an expandable Micros SD memory slot, turning the modem into an external storage device as well.
Also built into the software is a notification system that receives network notices from the ISP, such as download usage, which is sent via SMS and pops up into the application as a message. This is handy when your internet plan has a set limit of data per month. Previously this feature was only available to Windows users, but is also now available to Mac OSX users as well.
The Huawei E1762 Modem is bundled in all new Mobile Broadband plans from ONE.
