Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot Set to Launch on May 18th

Posted In News - By Mark Hearn On Tuesday, March 20th, 2012 12:30pm PST With 3 Comments

Earlier in the year at CES Sprint made its first three LTE devices official. Overlooked by the Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper, the Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot was the red haired stepchild of the trio. Wondering what the future held for the device that plays nice with 3G, WiMAX and LTE, our sources threw us a bone and advised that Sprint intends to release their first LTE hotspot on May 18th.

As a refresher, the Tri-Network Hotspot will support up to 8 simultaneous data connections, with an indoor/outdoor range of 115/150 feet and 32GB of shared storage. But its biggest selling point will be its ability to climb Sprint’s network ladder, supporting the highest mobile broadband speeds Sprint has to offer, no matter where you happen to find yourself located. Our source was unable to confirm price or data plan details at this time, but we’ll continue to play things close to the vest and see what we can dig up.

About - Mark is the founding father of SprintFeed. He is a nerd's nerd if ever such a thing existed. His love affair with the Now Network started with the release of the Treo 600 back in 2004 and has been going strong ever since. Highly opinionated and somewhat eccentric he shares his ramblings about his network of choice here at SprintFeed.

    Nice, all the puzzle pieces seem to be falling together nicely.

    Can’t wait to get this. And I like the “Data used this cycle:” info; my current Sierra Wireless device doesn’t show this (resetting the count after each restart) & I have to log into my sprint account to see what my total usage is.

    I use to use the Sprint MiFi Until they got rid of their unlimited 4g plan. They better have an unlimited LTE plan or this would be pointless. Who needs LTE if you’re limited to 5gb?
