With several new mobile routers on the market, we've been doing some extensive head-to-head testing between them.
Our premium members have access to our field testing notes and results below.
Our in-depth reviews and video overview guides for each of the products based on our experiences have also been released to our members in the Review Center.
The new routers we are looking at this round:
- Pepwave SOHO AC (mk3)
- WiFiRanger GoAC
- WiFiRanger Core
- WiFiRanger EliteAC

Our Testing Procedure
In addition to ongoing informal real-world usage testing, we set up a series of formal head-to-head testing scenarios where we measured and compared different combinations of gear.
We took a look at:
- Raw LAN Speeds
- WiFi-as-WAN Speeds
- Mobile Hotspot Tethering Performance
- Wi-Fi Range (Send / Receive)
We also take notes on user interface, reliability and general performance.
