AT&T is now selling the Franklin A10 LTE Mobile Hotspot in its lineup, a low-end Cat-4 LTE mobile hotspot device.
The Franklin A10 is an AT&T Version Franklin RT410 and is Franklin's first hotspot for AT&T.
The hotspot itself is very basic, only offering LTE Cat-4 connectivity an limited band support (2, 4, 5, 12, 66). Notably, AT&T's Band 14 is not supported, a surprising omission. This hotspot also does not include any antenna ports.
The hotspot supports up to 15 devices via Wi-Fi 5 and can also be tethered via the USB-C port. It does not have an Ethernet port.
The A10 comes with a USB-C charging/data tethering port that can be connected to any Windows PC or Mac.
With the price of $79.99 and limited features, this is not a device we'd recommend for anything other than very basic connectivity.
Key Mobile Internet Related Considerations:
