T-Mobile today launched the Coolpad Surf, its first mobile hotspot device to support newer LTE bands 71 and 66. Band 71 — AKA 600 MHz — became a large and important part of T-Mobile’s network in 2018. Band 71 provides much-needed extra capacity in dense urban areas, and extended coverage elsewhere.

Coolpad Surf Features:

  • A 2150 mAh battery that lasts up to 48 hours on standby or for 5.3 hours of continuous use and can be used with up to 15 devices at once
  • A sleek, lightweight and portable design measuring only 4.29 x 2.64 x 0.63 inches
  • LED indicators and control panel with key statistics including battery life
  • Support for Band 71 (600 MHz LTE) along with 4G LTE Bands 2, 4 and 66, and 3G Bands 1, 2 and 4

T-Mobile has been offering phones with band 71 since November 2017, but before today, T-Mobile’s only mobile hotspot device was the Alcatel Linkzone, which only supports older LTE bands 2, 4, and 12.

The Coolpad Surf has a 2,150 mAh battery that should provide 5.3 hours of continuous use. It sells for $72, or $3/month for 24 months.
