as someone whose used mobile broadband for a long time. This is nothing new - my mobile network provider has been selling similar units like these with digital displays and all sorts of bling for a long long time now and the design is nothing new.

Its not worthy of the awards it receives when all TP-Link did was add support for 802.11n compared to the 'older' units.

its not going to cure cancer,
its not going to eradicate poverty in the 3rd world
its not going to save the world from an alien invasion

This pro-marketing is like supermarkets who lower the price of an item by 1 or 2 pence and think they are trending or saving the planet when really it doesn't make fuck all difference.

What did you read? Because nothing of that has anything at all to do with bta's post. They don't claim it's the first or the fastest or anything. Only that it got some awards and that it's small and looks "good". I really really don't get your point is what I'm trying to say.

Btw, hasn't January been? :ohwell:

EDIT: Oh yeah this was posted in january. My bad.
