So, say you’re an LTE addict and you want to share your connection with a few of your buddies. Rogers can help you with that as they will have a LTE Rocket Hub that will share an LTE connection to 15 of your closest friends. Here’s what Rogers Redboard had to say:
A Canadian first and Rogers exclusive, the new LTE Rocket hub runs on a 2,600 Mhz LTE spectrum – the fastest available speed in Canada – and allows you to connect up to 15 Wi-Fi enabled devices at the same time. Simply plug into an electrical outlet and power on to create a Wi-Fi zone connected to the Rogers LTE network. You can hook up WiFi enabled devices such as tablets, e-readers, laptops, printers, cameras, music players or gaming consoles. The options are virtually limitless for yourself, or the whole family.
The hub has typical LTE download speeds up to 40 Mbps and maximum theoretical download speeds up to 100 Mbps when activated on the Speed Plus option. It also allows you to connect automatically to 4G HSPA+ when outside of LTE coverage.
Sounds pretty sweet… And expensive from a data charge perspective. But I won’t go there. Instead I’ll focus on the fact that you and your friends will be able to share an LTE connection as of August 2nd as that’s when the LTE Rocket Hub will hit the streets.
