Sprint, the only mobile carrier in the US to offer 4G services, announced the availability of two 3G/4G hybrid Mobile Broadband Routers: Sprint Personal Hotspot PHS300S, and Cradlepoint MBR-1000 Broadband Router – the latter being targeted at business customers.
The two Mobile Broadband Routers are capable of simultaneously connecting a wide range of Wi-Fi-enabled devices (phones, laptops, cameras, MP3 players and so on) to Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks.
Priced at $159.99, the Sprint Personal Hotspot PHS300S can support up to 4 Wi-Fi connections at the same time. The Cradlepoint MBR-1000 Broadband Router support up to 32 simultaneous connections, but cots more: $249.99.
Both products are available with Sprint’s 3G and 4G monthly plans that range from $39.99 to $79.99.
“The addition of these mobile hotspot products offers even faster connectivity speeds to Wi-Fi users without the need to find a Wi-Fi hotspot. These two new products can potentially connect the Sprint 3G and 4G networks to the hundreds of millions of Wi-Fi-enabled devices in the U.S. today,” declared Todd Rowley, vice president at Sprint 4G.
Sprint said that it’s ready to launch 4G/WiMax services in three new markets this month (Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland), with more markets to come later in 2009.
