TP Link M7000 Mobile Wi-Fi Reviews:
The cellular modem in the TP-Link M7000 Hotspot supports the cellular standards 3G/ UMTS and 4G/ LTE. 2G/GSM is not supported, which is not tragic because the low speeds in the 2G network.
TP-Link M7000 router can use almost all LTE frequency ranges that are important for Europe: Band 1, 3, 5, 7, 8 and 20 but without band 28 (700 MHz).
The theoretically max likely speed is 150 Mbit/s in the downlink and as high as 50 Mbit/s in the uplink. This is a slow LTE modem by today’s standards, however considering the low cost, that’s great. In practice, several devices can be supplied with fast internet without any problems and several parallel video streams were also not a problem in the test.
Unfortunately, the max speed is limited by the weak WLAN module. In the test, a max of 55 Mbit/s could be measured in the download and as high as 45 Mbit/s in the upload via LTE. For comparison: with a current smartphone (Apple iPhone 12 mini), around 300 Mbit/s for download and almost 200 Mbit/s for upload were possible at the same location. If TP-Link had installed a faster WLAN module, at least the maximum speed of the modem would have been possible. However, the M7000 can not be worked with as a USB modem either, so you only need to depend on WiFi.
TP-Link M7000 can supply up to 10 devices with a WLAN connection at one time. The router works exclusively in the WLAN frequency band around 2.4 GHz; a connection with as high as 145 Mbit/s could be established in the test. However, this is the gross data rate; in practice– as already described in the modem test– significantly lower bandwidths are achieved. The router does not supply a guest WLAN function.
The range is absolutely sufficient for a small apartment, a summer house or a caravan. Nevertheless, a range of more than 10 meters is hardly possible if there are still obstacles such as a wall between the router and the end device. The WLAN transmission power and thus the range can be reduced in the menu, there are a total of three power levels. There is also the option to automatically switch off the WLAN after 10 minutes if no device is active in the WLAN.
The battery on the TP-Link M7000 can be changed with no problems and has a capacity of 2,000 mAh. The manufacturer advertises a battery life of as many as 8 hours. In the test, the battery life with activated energy-saving mode and WLAN range “medium” was checked. For the duration of the test, around 2 devices were linked at the same time and there was a permanent internet radio stream. The battery lasted around 6 hours under these conditions. If the WLAN transmission power is set to “low” and no permanent streaming is used, the specification of TP-Link (8 hours) can even be realistically achieved.
The TP-Link M7000 is a very inexpensive mobile LTE router, however the device made a good impression in the test. The device is small and compact, the battery life is good and operation is easy because of good software. You have to do without comfort features such as a LAN connection or connections for external antennas.
