My third mobile data XT Network experience: USB goodness

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 21-May-2009 18:04

So far I posted about my first and second mobile data experience on the Telecom New Zealand's new XT network. After the official media launch I was handed a Sierra Wireless 885 USB modem, which I have now tested too...

I've swapped my XT Network SIM card from my handset to the Sierra Wireless 885 USB Modem. No CD in the box - the software is automatically installed from the USB device, which can also be used as a media card reader. The software announced a firmware update was available and I let it do the update.

No problems at installing on Windows 7 RC 64 bit - so I guess it should work well with all other previous versions of Windows - and Mac OS X software is on the USB memory too...

After this I clocked the performance on this device. So here is the user interface and the speed test results:
