Re: Advice on upgrade from 3G to 4G

The Cyfre can help you on the 3G side but not the LTE side ... that frequency (700 MHz) is out of the range of the CA-819.

The MBR1000 cannot connect to the Hotspot, only the newer Cradlepoints have that capability (WiFi as WAN)

Jim, found out the Hotspot Novatel MiFi 4620LE modem provided by Millenicom doesn't have any wired (Ethernet) connectivity and you say it cannot connect to MBR1000 so that pretty much rules out Millenicom if I decide to upgrade to 4G. :-( Thanks for the feedback.

The 4620LE can connect to the newer Cradlepoint routers using WiFi as WAN mode. That will give you the Ethernet ports you need.

The problem is that a MBR1200 costs $250. Seems like overkill just to solve a connectivity problem. Odd that Millenicom doesn't offer an USB modem for their 4G plan like they do for their 3G plan. Especially since Verizon does.

You don't need a MBR1200, a MBR95 will work fine and it's around $95

Further, there have been a number of eBay sales of the MBR95 at well under $95 recently. Of course, one runs a certain amount of risk when buying used equipment...

I got an MBR95 refurb on amazon for $45. Has worked flawlessly so far. Just another option to check out.
