Good but ...

Router was supplied by TELUS with their "rural" wireless 250 plan.
I live in a low signal fringe location. Nearest tower is over 10 miles away and our cell phones get 0 or 1 bars in the house.
The MF275 gets 2 to 4 bars and consistantly provides 25 to 50 Mbits per sec down and 5 to 8 up with 35 ms latency using Ookla.
Wifi is dual band supports 10 clients on each.
Tested port forwarding and DMZ. Both work.
pros: Terrific sensitivity, bandwidth, and latency. Wifi is dual band and has very good coverage. Will run on internal battery ... you can take it camping!
cons: Very basic functionality. No bridge mode, dedicated ip assignment by mac, or other nicities that modern routers provide. Statistics are poor. Data usage is by month and start date cannot be altered. No usage by mac.
5 stars if your need is simply to get high quality internet connectivity in a fringe location or where there is no option of a wired connection.
4 stars if you need more sophisticated wifi options as you will have to configure another router behind it. Easy to do but would be so nice if the ZTE could be configured to provide the public ip to the wan side of the second router. For most people this is a non-issue. Techies may be frustrated.
I would research other routers if I was not getting it as part of a service package. Then again, the WAN side performance is remarkable.
