Rogers has released a new wireless product called the “Rocket Hub” that will be available later this month, plans start at $35 per month, plus the cost of the hardware.
Basically this acts as an agent to give a wireless or voice connection when one cannot be found. All you have to do is plug this in and you’re good to go, it connects over “Rogers 7.2 Mpbs HSPA network, using either Wi-Fi or Ethernet to allow multiple devices to share one Internet connection and its UMTS network for voice.”
Pretty cool, especially if you are in really remote Canadian areas.
John Boynton, Senior VP and CMO said today that “The Rocket Hub, seamlessly integrating both voice and internet services in one simple, cost-effective solution, provides businesses and consumers the option of a reliable, portable voice and data connection where and when they need it. With the launch of the first fixed offering in the mobile internet category, Rogers is once again listening to our customers and delivering the newest innovations to meet their needs.”
