You know you can buy a Rogers Rocket Stick so that you can have Internet access on your laptop anywhere you have Rogers cellular service? What if you can’t get a signal? What if you want to share that web access with other people? This is where the newly announced Rogers Rocket Hub comes into play and it sounds like it could be a great solution for small businesses and dorm rooms.
The Rocket Hub comes by way of Ericsson and it plugs into any power outlet. You don’t need an Internet access point or a cellular signal from Rogers. When the Ericsson Rocket Hub gets its juice, it then creates a Wi-Fi hotspot connected to the Rogers wireless network.
This Wi-Fi hotspot can then be used by up to fifteen devices, surfing the web at their leisure. To make matters even more interesting, the Rocket Hub effectively becomes a mini cell tower too, because cell phones in the area can use it for voice communication as well. Nifty. The voice and data plans include unlimited local calling and unlimited Canadian long distance can be added for $20 a month.
All of the price plans are also on “flex” based on your usage. For voice and data, you can expect to pay $50 for up to 3GB, $60 for up to 5GB, and $75 for up to 10GB. If you don’t need the voice, then it’s $35/3GB, $45/5GB, and $60/10GB.
