TP-LINK's Family of Wireless N Routers Now 4G Compatible to Provide Cost Efficient Mobile Internet Hotspot

Pair routers with 4G USB modem to create a 4G mobile hotspot at home or on the go

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TP-LINK announced today that their family of 3G/3.75G Wireless N Routers is now 4G compatible with major wireless mobile phone carriers such as Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. The Portable Battery-Powered Wireless N Router (TL-MR3040) is an ideal travel companion to enable up to 5 devices to access the Internet simultaneously on the 4G mobile network.  The Wireless N Routers for home networks (TL-MR3220 and TL-MR3420) can now provide 4G mobile Internet as a back up at home when your DSL or cable service is down.

Mobile users that pairs TL-MR3040 with a 4G USB modem vs. a 4G portable hotspot from a wireless carrier can save about $20 dollars per month. Since most carriers also require a minimum of two-year contract, total savings could be up to $480 dollars per contract term. You can avoid extra charges without having to pay for a hotspot contracted through your wireless carrier. Simply purchase your own device and plug in the USB modem stick to create the same mobile hotspot.

A recent product review that appeared at Gdgt.com called the TL-MR3040 a very good portable router based on its internal 2000mAh battery that lasts up to 4 hours at full 802.11n range and speed. The reviewer also noted the ease-of-use, great Wi-Fi speed and easy set-up. You can read the full review at http://gdgt.com/tp-link/tl-mr3040/reviews/sju/

A customer review that appeared on Newegg.com described how the TL-MR3040 provided a lower cost option to tether his Apple tablet to the Internet without maxing out his phone plan monthly data limits.  He was able to purchase an Internet stick and pre-paid broadband card from his wireless mobile carrier.  You can read the full review at http://bit.ly/RfIpyZ

"TP-LINK makes it easy to stay connected using multiple devices wherever your busy life takes you, including at home, the airport, hotel and even in your vehicle. Since all wireless carriers are selling 4G USB modems now and no longer offering 3G, TP-LINK has made the technology upgrade to ensure 4G compatibility for their users" said Lewis Wu, the Director of Sales at TP-LINK USA. "The existing inventory of 3G/3.75G Wireless N Routers is being phased out and the 3G/4G products will be in retail channels beginning November 2012."
