@Debatosh @Abhi093 

 

How much did you have to pay in total to get the 5G router (customs etc.)

 

 

Does it aggregate bands without any additional settings/customization? Also will it work with all Indian providers?

 

I am also planning to buy it but it is very costly? Is there any cheaper option?

@chetan1989 I paid 19k for the router, 3.7k in shipping, 10.5k in taxes.

 

It does not support 40A-40A CA.

 

If you don't care about 5G and just need something that is compatible with all the 4G bands/CA configs here, Get a used B525-65a from Ebay. Someone got it for 7k roughly.

 

It supports pretty much all the bands, Has lots of _open_  and customisable firmwares available that you can use to lock PCI/cell ID/bands etc. to get the most consistent experience out of 4G. .

@ishanjain28 - TpLink MR600 is a piece of junk, CA does not stay permanently. Tried LDPA (no luck). Both JIO & AirTel towers are with 500 m and support CA in 3,40 here at Kolkata.

 

I'm planning to go for Huawei from router-switch, Huawei 5G CPE Pro H112-373 I see it does not support 5G: n3/5/8/40 and support for only n78.
 

Understand 4G spectrum auctions started today where operators will renew their existing spectrum in multiple circles and they might re-farm some of it to kickstart 5G in sub Ghz bands considering 5G spectrum (mid bands, mmWave bands) will be in future auction. B8(700 Mhz) will probably go unsold again due to the price.

 

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 H122-373 (some 50 USD more) has support in all these bands but not in stock.Do you suggest I wait for this ?

 

Other experts pls. suggest, just ensuring that this is future proof considering the cost, shipping & taxes.

@KaushikB I can't suggest that you buy Huawei 5G routers right now..

Try to find the B525s-65a I suggested in the earlier post.

The prices on router-switch have increased so much, It's crazy!(They have doubled since I purchased my router).

 

Buy a used 4G router right now and wait for a few years before switching to a 5G device.

@ishanjain28 - I could not hold my excitement back and ordered a Huawei CPE Win model last week from Router-Switch. I wanted to check with you on experience with Fedex ? my shipment was sent from Hong Kong last Wednesday and expected to be delivered today. The status still shows as shipment is now in GUANGZHOU- China and waiting to be shipped since Saturday.

 

Called customer care, they have no

clue why this is stuck and promised a emai status after checking with their Chinese counterparts, very sure this will not be delivered today.

Hi @Sunshine @Kevin_Z 

Would absolutely love CA_1A-3A (B1+B3) support for my Archer MR600 v1 here in the UK to use CA with the three and smarty networks.

 

Any update on the possibility of a firmware update would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Joe

@jmcl1 

Hi, I am afraid not and Archer MR600 V1 still did not support CA_1A-3A (B1+B3) yet.

Thank you very much.

@ishanjain28 - Finally got a Huwaei CPE Win 5G, super happy on my purchase. I am using this with my AirTel data sim and locked this to B3 (1800 MHz) with a 10MHz bandwidth getting a consistent 45-50 Down with 20 up. 
 

Band 40 gives me a around 25 down, 5-7 up. Being a TDD, upload sucks. AirTel has disabled CA in my area, but I'm happy with B3 as I'll only be using as a failover to my Jio Fiber.

@TP-Link Any news on the support of CA_1A-3A (B1+B3) on MR600 v1  as of today ? Is there a new version, because someone above was asking this question a couple of months ago.I will be very grateful if you can give me some info.
