Review: Rogers LTE Rocket Hub ZTE MF2 28B

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Testing the Rogers LTE Rocket Hub on a week-long working vacation Montreal with multiple smartphones, tablets and notebooks showed us just how valuable an LTE powered hub can be.

You know how it goes. You book your vacation accommodations making sure that there's WiFi available, it is a critical part of finding a home away from home, specially if you need quick and reliable access to the Internet. I recently spent a week with my family in lovely Montreal and we booked accommodations through Tripadvisor.ca.

We found a nicely outfitted apartment right at Montreal's plateau and one that was advertised as having high speed Internet via WiFi as part of the package.

Once we had unpacked and gotten comfy, we took out our smartphones to check mail, post our latest Instagrams and check the weather. It was then that we realized that the so-called WiFi was extremely sketchy and slow.

The owner of the house was away on vacation so we couldn't ask their assistance. Our other option would have been to use up our smartphone's data plans and tether our notebooks and tablets. Thankfully, I brought along a Rogers LTE Rocket Hub.

The Rocket Hub uses a Rogers LTE SIM Card and acts as a wireless hotspot. The stylish black slab is a simple plug and play affair. Plug it into the mains and wait for it to grab a signal and then enter the password that appears on a sticker below.

The Rocket Hub ($99.99 on selected plans) appears like any WiFi hotspot, it can handle multiple devices and that weekend we were four persons with a total of 12 devices (crazy, right?). We managed to have at least 8 devices connected simultaneously.

Thanks to the Rogers LTE Rocket Hub, we were able to stay connected throughout our  stay. The device is unobtrusive, easy to use and reliable. Even with multiple devices connected, i experienced up to 30 Mbps download speeds.

The only issue we experienced was that sometimes, some devices were kicked off the network and unable to join in. The Rocket Hub worked great for the most part and even supported various Facetime calls. 

An ideal solution for mobile businesses relying on constant and fast wireless connectivity, families who need to connect while on vacation or in the cottage as well as road warriors needing to connect multiple devices on the go, the Rogers LTE Rocket Hub will deliver.

I would love to buy this! But seeing the Rogers name, I hesitant to get it bc I know it will be pricey. I live away from home and my rent house no internet. It is painful to be limited to EXTREMELY slow public internet (why bother connecting when you are waiting for a web pg to load for 2 mins). Timmys is around but its extremely awkward to stay there for a long period of time. In korea, they mentioned they had a device similar to this that cost around $20 and I'm guessing the monthly fee is reasonably priced. But seeing how Rogers doesn't have much competitors in this market, it makes sense why the price is high.
