This morning, Verizon, in partnership with Novatel Wireless, introduced the 4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice. The Broadband Router is capable of taking your wired and wireless device and connecting them to Big Red’s 4G LTE network. In addition, it will also allow for your home phone to be plugged in, basically allowing you the freedom of eliminating any current service you have with other providers.
Verizon touts the convenience when traveling with the router, as well as always having a connection in your favorite cafe.
Voice capabilities on the 4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice mean travelers or vacationers can bring their home number with them where they go. The broadband router eliminates the need to constantly search for Wi-Fi hotspots in cafes or paying hotel Wi-Fi or phone fees.
The router is priced at $49.99 with a two year contract. There are three different plans customers can choose from – Voice-only, Data-only, or a Voice and Data bundle. Once signed up, you can switch between plans freely for whatever your situation requires.
Besides looking a little bulky and silly, it seems like a nifty little device.
