Huawei E398

The E398 is the first multimode dongle, which offers the flexibility to switch between the different networks. It has a USB 2.0 port and runs on Green software.

Unlike the E589, the Huawei E398 is a USB dongle that can be used by one individual only at any point in time.

Huawei Mobile Wi-Fi E589

The Huawei Mobile Wi-Fi E589 is also a multimode broadband device, allowing you to utilize LTE/3G/2G networks. It also has a microSD card slot that allows you to share files on the card.

The Huawei Mobile Wi-Fi E589 supports the LTE, 3G and 2G networks.

The main feature of the E589 dongle is that it is multimode, which allows it to function across LTE, 3G and 2G networks. As such, should you fail to latch onto the LTE network, there's always the existing 3G networks to fall back on. It has an estimated surfing time of about 6 hours. It also has a microSD slot where you can share files stored on the card.
