Re: Here is 1 device certified that can be used by consumers

The BT-6600 is a $600 business modem.

The BT-6621 is an $850 business router.
They can be used in the home, right?

Much business gear can be used in the home. It doesn't make them consumer gear. I guess it does if you're just trying to be obnoxious and make a point without adhering to the rules of logic...

Honestly, you can do the same thing with an old PC, a $29 Verizon USB modem and pfSense. I use my verizon air card as a backup for my whole network when the power goes out (and so does cable) all the time.

That's like saying a full enterprise rack server can be used at the home.

Can it be used at the home? Sure

Is it expensive? You betcha

Is it practical for use at the home by home users? No

Is it practical for use by business? Sure

Besides, 1 out of 29 products being approved for use by consumers doesn't exactly inspire great odds and confidence for the consumer market. But on the other side of the coin, it is good that Verizon has allowed independent vendors to create products to be used on their network, even though it is mostly for commercial use. A lot of commercial products have a retail basis. It remains to be seen if the vendor who are creating the devices for the commercial industry sees a practical use for their product in the retail market.

This sounds exactly like CableCARD, which is largely a sham to get the FCC off the cableco's backs.

I wouldn't wander too far off in that direction, since most advanced "consumer" cell phones are in the $400-$600 range if not subsidized by the carrier.
