unfortunately Huawei B593 is not compatible to pure lte(MTN).

please refer to article below .


"Afrihost can only allow devices which have been network approved by MTN and have identified a range of devices which specifically suite a Fixed LTE offer, and which are sometimes offered by competitors. This range of devices includes:


  • Huawei B525
  • Huawei B612
  • Huawei B618
  • ZTE MF286

Please note that Pure LTE (MTN) will only work on the above approved devices. If you insert your SIM card into a device that has not been approved by MTN, your SIM card will be blocked and you will lose internet access. You will then have to contact Afrihost Support to get your SIM card unblocked."

I just got sim yesterday and still have to make my first payment, can you help me change my package from sim only to sim with device please?
If the mentioned devices will work with MTN, the Huawei B593 will also work only if the B593 is SIM unlocked.

What's the variant model of your Huawei B593 router? The variant models supports different LTE frequency bands. Make sure your B593 supports the LTE frequency bands from MTN. You may try the latest Huawei 4G Routers or Huawei 5G Routers
