The MF680 is a super high-performance modem that brings the speed of third generation (3GSM) data communications closer to the requirements of 4G networks (often referred to as LTE), with download and upload speeds of up to 42Mbps and 5.76Mbps respectively.
The MF680 has been especially designed for HSPA+ networks, providing users with an extremely powerful mobile broadband experience. This stylish device allows COSMOTE customers to enjoy high-speed mobile broadband where the network is equipped.
The modem is equipped with a USB slider connector that can be easily adjusted and plugged into any USB interface and also supports a MicroSD card with data storage of up to 32 GB.
