Long gone are the days of searching for an elusive Wi-Fi hotspot for Sprint mobile broadband customers. Instead of having to hunt for a cafe or other public wireless hotspot, users can now create their own Wi-Fi hotspot by connecting multiple Wi-Fi devices such as smartphones, laptops and cameras to Sprint 3G/4G networks. Sprint's new Mobile Broadband Routers can connect any Wi-Fi-enabled device at 3G or 4G mobile broadband speeds anywhere that Sprint 3G and 4G networks are available.
The Sprint Personal Hotspot PHS300S and the Cradlepoint MBR-1000 Broadband Router are both essentially Wi-Fi routers that accept both 3G and 4G USB wireless dongles. Plug the dongle into the router and you have a Wi-Fi network that runs without a hard line. This means that Sprint's new Mobile Broadband Routers can connect any Wi-Fi-enabled device at 3G or 4G mobile broadband speeds anywhere that a Sprint 3g or 4g network is available.
The Sprint Personal Hotspot PHS300S model can support up to four simultaneous Wi-Fi connections while the Cradlepoint MBR-1000 Broadband Router for business will support up to 32 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections. The ability of these wireless routers to be used with 3G and 4G networks looks to offer unprecedented advantages for the growing number of Wi-Fi users in the country. As 4G continues to be implemented across the country users will be able to maximize their wireless performance as they begin to start connecting to the industries fastest available network.
Heres what Todd Rowley, Vice President of Sprint 4G had to say about their newest broadband routers.
"These mobile broadband routers provide an unprecedented bridge to high-speed network performance for multiple Wi-Fi devices or multiple users," "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."
