The Unite Pro was AT&T's flagship mobile hotspot from September 2014 until it was replaced by the Unite Explore in April 2016. In its day, it was a great hotspot and earned a place as one of our top picks.
When first released, this was overall the easiest to use and most feature-rich hotspot we had ever used, on any network.
It even addressed some of the little annoyances that plagued many previous mobile hotspots.

Review & Testing Status
Netgear provided us a review unit in September 2014 and we have extensively used this device as our primary AT&T mobile hotspot since.
The Review in a Nutshell:
If you are looking for a hotspot on AT&T's network, this is a great option.
It may cost a bit more up front, but in the long run this is a solid choice with support for AT&T's future network technologies that will keep delivering increasing performance over the coming years as the other hotspot models are left behind, stuck in the slow lane and increasingly obsolete.
