    Completely useless for a home office etc unless they have some large data caps. I wonder if Sprint will offer some Clearwire type plans at some point.

    The spark/lte/3G connection is intended as a back up to the primary wired connection. And iirc there are higher tiered data plans coming for it.

    How do they classify this as a "Enterprise" router for business?

    All I see if special is the fail over?

    How about OpenVPN server
    IP Sec
    IP Pass-through
    Advance Bandwidth control

    Seems like a regular home router with fail over?

    Sprint is always behind everything and to call this an Enterprise solution seems to know be in touch what the enterprise users are looking for.

    Why would a company wasite money on this and sprints unreliable network? In areas with spark and LTE 9 times out of 10 cable broadband or even DSL is available that is more reliable and cheaper.

    So, now we have the LTE device that's the closest equivalent to my Clear Hub Express! When the hell is Sprint going to let us know what they're going to offer us to migrate over to the LTE network with this device?!?

    As we approach the shutdown of Clear in early November, I've begun researching alternative options. Apparently, Sprint may offer business customers Unlimited Data on these hotspot options.

    On the other hand, normal Consumers are limited right now to usage that's too low for my needs. But there may be ways around that, if you're willing to be.... shall we say, crafty. PM me if you'd like some more info on options to explore. I won't post them on the open forums where anyone on the interwebz can see it. Just too risky.

    So, is this device even still available? The Sprint store I saw it in no longer has it on display, and I'm having trouble finding it on Sprint's website.

    Is anyone even reading this post?!?

    It is a great backup internet connection though.
