    Thanks in advance for your help!

    PS: TELUS site indicates 1700 and 2600 MHz; confused??

    a in yul,

    WorldIRC is right. This is due to the "paring channels" allocated in the AWS spectrum, are in different blocks relatively "further apart" than in the Cellular (800/850MHz range) and PCS (1900/2000MHz range)...



    For the FDD flavour of LTE as well as UMTS, AWS is the band 4...

    UPLINK Ch. in 1700MHz range, DOWNLINK Ch. in 2100MHz range

    Back to the AC754S vs AC763S...

    - The AC763S supports DC-HSPA+ while AC754S does not.

    - The AC763S supports LTE in the LTE Band 4 (AWS) / 7 (BRS, 2600) while AC754S supports it in the LTE Band 4 (AWS) / 17 (700, Lower B & C blocks for at&t)

    WorldIRC,

    In this context, whichever carrier I am using it with does not matter. And I have tried 2 different Android devices and behave the same.

    It is the interaction between the version 4 of AirCard Watcher for Android and specific carrier version of firmware (Rogers, Bell or TELUS). The previous version 3 of AirCard Watcher has no problem to select WCDMA ALL or LTE ALL in the Band / Region selection menu.

    Thanks for your interest in our accessories. Unfortunately the desktop charging cradle product is no longer being produced for the North American market at this time. I will let you know if future plans to produce this ever arise. Otherwise, I may have some demo models at the end of the year I can distribute free of charge so keep in touch here.

    Right now the MIMO Antenna and Replacement battery are the only available accessories for the AC763: Our E-Store
    Thanks AirCard_Social for all the info -- will reach out to you EOY just in case you happen to have any demo models of the cradle, that would be great if possible

    thks for the info;

    after rereading the tech differences i am still wondering which aircard is optimal for BELL, FIDO or TELUS in terms of LTE, DC; etc in terms of which LTE band they r using??. Once the theoretical is done i need to put practical into play and see what real world speeds i am getting both at home and in the office.

    Hopefully someone can chime in with regards to where to find cradle and hotpsot accessory online...;

    Devices that support 700 / AWS are future-proofed for the spectrum auction...and will have better coverage once LTE launches in 700
    Devices that support AWS / 2600 are theoretically faster, but will never have great coverage due to the high frequencies

    No device supports all 3 yet that I've seen.

    So far, phones only support the first protocol (700/AWS)

    ^i guess u cant have your cake and eat it too; 754s is 700 MHz, yet 763s is DC....

    BTW, thks for the info..

    (SO basically 763s for DC data plans and 754s for LTE data plans..)

    HMM, it seems the same restrictions Smart Hubs too;

    ^^only 700MHz and NO 2600 BUT dual channel capable..!!....; seems like Apples philosophy of incremental changes is all over lately...

    a in yul / WorldIRC,

    You are confused! The AC763S has got the advantages of DC-HSPA+ AND LTE Band 7 (2600) support that AC754S lacks. 700MHz support is NOT future proof at all!

    At this point, I would recommend subscribers on Rogers and Bell to get those devices which support the LTE Band 4 (AWS) and 7 (2600) - as both Rogers and Bell have got the BRS spectrum. Forget about the 700MHz spectrum which has not even been allocated for mobile telecom in Canada yet. It will be chaotic just like in the US now.. device supports LTE Band 17 (700, Lower B & C blocks) like at&t has, will not support Band 13 (700, Upper C block) like Verizon has. So future proof for what specific carrier you will be with several years down the road? Anyway, read http://www.fiercewireless.com/specia...t-interoperate So unless you are a road warrior frequently visiting the US and mobile data access on at&t LTE is a must, otherwise AC754S may not be a better pick than than the AC763S.

    As for the DC-HSPA+ in the UMTS side of the business, it works better on paper than in reality often.

    @AirCard_Social, i look forward to hearing your comments with regards to my queries including how and where i can purchase the hotspot router as per my initial link...

    Looking at the telus HUAWEI router; but am patiently awaiting to hear from u before deciding...

    The 754s supports from GPRS to HSPA+, but no DC-HSPA+, and LTE.
    The 763s supports from UMTS to DC-HSPA+, and LTE.

    If my area only has 3G network, 754s maximal speed is 21Mbps and 763s is 42Mbps.
    Also, because 754s has GPRS and EDGE support, it should have better coverage.

    Am I right?

    Black-Xstar,

    Greetings.

    You may be confused with the techno-jargon...

    GPRS, EDGE are 2G data enhancement in the GSM realm - nothing to do with 3G. Both AC754S and AC763S also supports GRPS/EDGE in GSM 850/1900MHz networks that Rogers/Fido has. The actual GSM/GPRS/EDGE footprint is depending on where exactly you are using the device. (TELUS and Bell do NOT have the GSM network at all - so GPRS/EDGE support will not be an 2G-fallback advantage whatsoever if you are their subscriber.)

    For HSPA+/DC-HSPA+ are the 3G/4G data enhancement in the UMTS realm. Even though the AC763S can go DC-HSPA+ while AC754S cannot, the actual DC-HSPA+ footprint is also depending on where exactly you are using the device. Again, DC-HSPA+ works better on paper than in reality often. So do not expect it would perform dramatically faster than HSPA+. The real deal 4G is still LTE.

    Please check with Rogers (or your carrier) regarding the coverage and service availability.
