To date, Sprint still is the only US carrier to have some form of 4G, and it likes this fact. Sprint likes to flaunt it in front of its competition. Tonight a new 4G router was announced that will definitely be flaunted in front of Verizon’s MiFi technology. It’s called Overdrive and is made by Sierra Wireless. The router, as can easily be inferred, will take advantage of Sprint’s WiMAX network and broadcast that network signal to up to five devices at a time within your home or office.
The Overdrive, of course, will operate on EVDO 3G in cases that 4G simply isn’t available.
Going on sale January 10, the Overdrive will be for sale at Sprint and Best Buy stores for $99 after $50 mail-in rebate. Expect the service to cost you $59 per month on a two year commitment.
What say you, everyone? Will this be worth the monthly cost to have?
