Default 3g network for field office

Trying to convince a make-shift field office to pick up one of these babys

CTR350 Mobile Broadband Travel Router | Cradlepoint Technology

a hand full of laptop users trying to share one 3G wireless internet stick... heh... sounds like a goofy social experiment. I was going to suggest ICS, but the laptops come and go, and these folks are not computer literate.

At any rate, if I get to play around with it I'll post my results.

Heh... let us know what kind of data plan you get on it, and what kind of monthly bill you expect..... :)

I know Rogers has an ericson wireless router that would basically do the same thing (basically a router with a rocket stick inside) and I suspect all of the other providers of cellphone tech internet either have their own version, or soon will.

dataplans are within reason.. i mean... you can only tx/rx so fast... and it's mostly all for email... i doubt they will use half their monthly data plan quota of 500MB.

And it's Bell BTW, so rogers devices are out.

I have a rogers stick myself and prefer their 3g speeds over Bell/Telus

Just so long as they don't start watching streaming Youtube HD vids.... :)

I only mentioned Rogers because I knew about the rocket hub... I'd be surprised if Bell didn't have their own.

Or if any updates get pushed to their PCs...

I guess it's all paid for by the company though ;)

I have the sneaking suspicion that it's the exact same ericson hub that Rogers is currently using.
