The E169 is a vast improvement on the entry level devices, such as the E156, E160 and the older E220. However the E169 does not and will never support HSUPA (for higher upload speeds and lower latency) – sported by higher spec devices such as the E170 and the Option Icon 431. If you're looking to purchase a mobile broadband modem investigate the price of these higher specification devices first – the difference may be minimal and well worth the upgrade.
The E169 is compatible with Microsoft Windows (2000/ Vista/ XP) and Mac OSX, making it for mobile broadband users, whether at home or on the move. It is a perfect match for compatibility with all Operation Systems in laptops. The E169 is fast reliable, and easy to operate. Thus, mobile users can experience many new features and services with the E169.
