The E585 is only single band UMTS 2100 whereas the Novatel is Tri-band 900/1900/2100. I thought this would make a difference in Central London but I have not seen any practical difference.
With the Novatel, if you connect it to a computer via USB, it switches off wifi. With the Huawei, if you connect via USB, you can still have 5 devices connected by wifi.
There is also the newer Huawei E586 appearing in the UK which does HSDPA+.

Thanks for the reply.
I currently get connected via EDGE so does this compare with HSPA?
Edge is 2G network, HSPA is 3G network,and nowadays it is already popular at HSPA+ which is also named 4G! the most different is the speeds, the later up to 21Mbps, as like HUAWEI E586 that's the latest mobile wifi router hotspot, you need pay attention that while you pick it, you need an unlocked unit that ensure it is compatible with O2 networks.
