I live just outside of Toronto in Caledon with poor cell coverage due to the limited number of towers. I have been using the Netcomm 3g25GVWR modem for the past 3.5 years and have recurring problems with it. It has to be reset multiple times per day due to lost connectivity and is brutally slow, despite having a booster attenae.
Rogers has stopped selling the NTE modem which replaced the one I have and they don't appear to have another model available. I only see the mobile hotspot aircard by sierra wireless.
Does anyone know when another rocket hub modem will be available? The user reviews for the sierra wireless air card look quite mixed as well - any thoughts on whether this is a worthwhile alternative to consider.
MOFI Network (www.mofinetwork.com) has a new MOFI4500 modem/router that allows you to use your existing Rogers mobile Internet SIM card. The two-antenna model does not have the SIM slot. The four-antenna model does have the SIM slot and reportedly also has connectors for an external antenna (something lacking in the last few versions of the Rogers RocketHub). The SIM version appears to be currently only available directly from the manufacturer (which is a Canadian company). Contact them directly for more information.
