Verizon getting a new 4G LTE Router expected next week
Back in 2011, Verizon said it was developing a Netgear 4G LTE router (model MBR1000), but that it was intended for use by companies, which could have it deployed on rail, bus or select coastal marine vessels; as well as in mining, construction, logging, parks, and rural areas. But since then, there hasn't been much info about the device.

Then we received a leaked document a few weeks ago showing Verizon was going to release a 4G LTE router to its customers on August 8th, though it's not clear if it's the same model from 2011 or an updated version.

Today, a friend of ours was able to get us some more details via a document that shows the features and specs of the Verizon 4G LTE router.

You can basically use it at your home, while traveling, even in a hotel room, as long as it is in a location where there is Verizon 4G LTE or 3G EVDO coverage. It features two external antennas, which should allow for it to pick up a better signal than a Jetpack or USB Modem. The Wi-Fi range is 150' for indoors and 300' for outdoors, and supports up to 20 Wi-Fi connected devices, or 4 devices via Cat5 cable. Pricing is $20/month for customers with a Verizon Share Everything plan.

Thanks again to our friend for the info!

With their expensive plans and limited data caps this is a joke, seriously...

This. 20 people = well unless those 20 people are only using basic phone functions your data caps going to get hit pretty fast.

$20 a month.. is that for using the data plan already being payed for? Basically, paying an additional monthly fee to use an existing data plan?

Yes that's correct, it's pretty useless to have if you do anything more than web page surfing. I like Verizon as I don't use usually more than 3gb of data, but for a home or portable internet, this just doesn't make sense

I looked in to their older router and their data plan was exorbitant if you wanted to use it at home for getting Netflix and such, more than $350.00. I kept Clear $45.00 unlimited data plan which works decently with Netflix. I have two Clear, one at home and one at work.

Many people do not mind paying the extra if they have no choice and this is the only way to get 4G/LTE. We have been selling our router for years (MOFI3500-3GN) and the majority of them had no problem paying $100 a month for their data. The Verizon one here is a very basic router with limited wifi range and feature but it still better than any hotspot. With the MOFI, you can direct USB tether your iphone or andriod and much more,

If you are taking about netgear mbr1515, it's been out from early spring this year. I hope you are talking about a brand new one, but since I checked the customer service this morning, there is nothing new for 4g lte router. Btw, if netgear can really give a wireless router for 4g network, I'll definitly get one, but unfortunately, mbr1515 still comes with power adapter.
