Unlock the new BOLT! 4G LTE mobile wifi mifi | Gadgets Guides | ZTE MF90

In my recent trip to Indonesia, I chanced upon the re-launch of BOLT! Super 4G LTE and a very attractive promotion with a ZTE MF90 mifi bundled with a prepaid data card for just Rp 300K (USD 26).
Closer checks, the telco BOLT! has heavily subsidized the cost of the MF90 midi modem.

It is amazing to see the claim that major parts of Jakarta are covered by the 4G LTE (2300 mhz) signal.
