xiaomist.comCube, HomeSpot & Speedbox: "WLAN to go" from Vodafone, o2 & Telekom in comparison

xiaomist.comCube, HomeSpot & Speedbox:

Anyone who would like to be able to access the Internet quickly and easily at home without DSL will find a flexible solution with the "WLAN from the socket" options from Telekom, Vodafone and o2. We compared Speedbox, xiaomist.comCube and HomeSpot and reveal the details.

Hotspot & LTE router: why do you need it?

If the three major network operators in Germany have their way, in future you will no longer need a DSL or cable connection in your own four walls to be able to surf the Internet quickly. Both Telekom , Vodafone and o2 have LTE and 5G routers on offer, with which you only need a power connection and sufficient mobile phone reception to be able to start surfing quickly. The routers are simply connected to the socket, the device establishes a connection to the mobile network and smartphones, tablets and the like can dial into the router's WLAN network.

The routers are therefore ideally suited for people who either live in rural areas or who do not have a DSL or cable connection for other reasons. But people who are regularly mobile can also benefit greatly from "WLAN to go". Since the mobile router is not tied to a household, it can be taken anywhere in Germany. So if you only need stationary Internet for a short time, for example on a business trip or on vacation, you can simply take your Internet with you from home.

Depending on how high the data consumption is, how fast the connection should be and which network you prefer, you can put together an individually tailored package. We present the options of the major German network operators below.
