Rogers Wireless recently launched its LTE network in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Ottawa, supposedly giving you speeds that might be even faster than what you have at home or at work. I had the opportunity to try out the only Rogers LTE device at the moment — the Sierra Wireless AirCard 313U mobile broadband modem — and this is what I found.
I remember when I first saw the Novatel MiFi device, I thought it was wonderful, the ability to pop in a SIM card your 3G provider packed in your phone – creating a Wi-Fi hotspot for nearby devices. Sure the data bills could get steep, but this was before wireless tethering became “a thing.”
While I’m more inclined to use wireless tethering now, there are still many others who love the MiFi and the terrific utility that it provides.
What to do. You have a solid 3G connection with your USB modem, your colleagues are sitting around pretending to do something on a disconnected laptop, you need to share that connection somehow. With Connect One’s Wi-Reach Classic you just insert your 3G USB modem, and voila, a Wi-Fi cloud appears sharing with up to 10 people.
