AVM's LTE Router: FRITZ!Box 6842 LTE

FRITZ!Box 6842 LTE

As opposed to its elder FRITZ!Box LTE siblings (6810, 6840) this one supports 3 bands:
  • 800
  • 1800 – that's the band, that Deutsche Telekom supports in German major towns like Berlin and Hamburg
  • 2600 announced the availability on … for …:
  • 2013-03-22: "available"
  • … 2013-03-11: 2013-03-13
  • 2013-03-13 .. ___ : 2013-04-03
Update 2013-03-27:
Good news: You don't need a dedicated LTE SIM card provided by you telecom company, I plugged the SIM card from my 3G Android tablet into this FRITZ!Box, and it just worked.
I love to see the familiar web GUI of the AVM FRITZ!Box.
Rather interesting and actually annoying to see the many LTE disconnections logged by the FRITZ!Box. Maybe the technical connection quality going through the LTE FRITZ!Box is not really better than going through the 3G Android tablet. Maybe I should have sought the 3G connection / disconnection / tethering log file on the tablet a little better. But seeing this log displayed on the FRITZ!Box GUI is just overwhelming. Maybe one day I will use it not just as a 4G Mobile Internet router.
