Earlier this month, Nexaria Wireless announced that its new NexConnect SOHO 3G/4G router will ship sometime in May. The device will provide a fast, secure Wi-Fi service to a home or office from any wireless carrier available in North America including HSPA and HSPA + networks from AT&T, Bell, Rogers, Telus and T-Mobile, and EVDO RevA networks from Sprint and Verizon, as well 4G WiMAX from Clear.
Nexaria said in a press release that the router's overall automated setup is quite simple, offering an "intuitive user friendly i3 GUI and desktop gadget." Other features of the SOHO router include multiple user access to the Internet, 300 Mbps speeds with 802.11n 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi service, and a faster 3G/4G connection than using a data card on a laptop computer.
"The NexConnect SOHO router is ideal for SMB (small to medium size businesses) and SOHO users that want ease of use and auto-connect capability without the difficulty typically associated with router installation," stated JR Yakel, VP Sales, Nexaira, Inc. "It is a compelling product offering that is simple to install and priced aggressively. It will be available through our distributors and value added resellers in May 2010."
The Nexaria NexConnect SOHO router will retail for $99.95 when it launches next month.
I think that I might look into getting one of these!
It is a wireless router built off the current and next generation cellular internet access. I'll let you use your imagination as to why someone might want a wireless router.
Freedom people, the freedom to move your connection to the internet to any place that has power and is in range of the tower.
Personally, I don't value freedom enough to loose the performance provided by my FIOS. Give me a 100MBps pipe I can take with my anywhere for what I'm paying now and I'll loose the wires
That sounds nice!
About 3x faster than my 2 yrs old Wireless G modem. Great enough to transfer files over a network!
100mbps is bitchslow! (about 8MB/s on a 100mbps).
If I had a gigabit network card I could send files at about the average transfer speed of a harddrive (mine goes 18 MB/s)
People who live in new areas or out of cable/DSL areas, as well as businesses in plazas that don't want to pay the cable company $10,000 to install a line. $100 can't be beat.
