    Wow. It's a new offering but with older technology. Why wouldn't they offer the X16 Modem at this point??

    It does have AT&T Band 14, which will be huge for some people.

    AT&T Introduces new netgear hotspot

    I saw the title then instantly got excited thinking you were going to say AT&T announces Nighthawk 5G!

    But alas, it’s just a cheaper Unite Explore......

    Edit: Interesting that they chose to omit band 46 and band 66.

    Not up on 5G info but the latest firmware on the Nighthawk included LAA. Isn't that ATT's 5G? I don't have 5G in my area so I can't test it. I am also very disappointed with the nighthawk, I rarely break 10Mbps. I'll admit that it is only getting 1 bar. My modem modules do a lot better.

    It’s kind of funny, LAA probably goes about the same distance as 5G-NR does and is similar in speeds but it’s definitely not 5G standards compliant.

    It would be kind of interesting to see a coverage and speed comparison between the two on the same cell site.

    My understanding is that this product was quickly thrown together in the wake of the ZTE ban and Huawei scrutiny. Netgear probably chose the X12 because of mini-PCI limitations of the Unite Express chassis. Replacing that with M.2/USB3 would have required redesigning the main board - and delayed the product significantly.

    Must stress I only know this from tearing down competitor products for design analysis. If AT&T had told me, I probably couldn't tell you.

    I am a bit surprised Band 66 didn't make the cut, but if they had to pick and choose, 14 is the better one to go with.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't there be interaction/interference issues between LAA and 5 GHz Wi-Fi?

    There could be, but there is a contention mechanism in its operation.

    With all the bandwidth in the 5 ghz band, all LAA needs is 3 20 mhz channels, there's quite a few other channels available.

    AT&T Unite Express 2 Mobile Hotspot AC797S-1A1NAS

    According to the AT&T website, they are not in stock at my local stores. Of course, I have had things actually be in stock locally even though the website showed otherwise. I sort of want to try one to see what Band 14 is like, when it shows up in my area.

    Does AT&T still have an unlimited hotspot device plan - postpaid or prepaid?

    For new users, only if you’re talking about getting one in a car or RV.

    This all might change soon though with 5G-NR

    I wonder if 5G will be added free to the current unlimited plans.
