Digi Transport WR44-U Cellular Internet Router
This was an excellent idea in the time before cellphones were as capable as they are today. The idea was to put a SIM in a device so that it can use the cellular network to feed internet to a laptop or desktop computer.
As far as we can tell it never caught on. We have fifty of these brand new devices that we are offering at a really low price, just to clear some shelf space.
This is a Cellular Internet Router they are used in areas where terrestrial internet is impossible to find, but where there is a good signal on a cellular network.
The operation is simple, the Cellular carrier provide a SIM card which effectively turns the unit into a cellular telephone with a four port switch allowing connections to four devices requiring internet.
When we tested one of the routers we activated it through Verizon and installed the SIM card they gave us. As you can see in the photographs is worked well providing our bench laptop with a reliable internet connection. Though not blazingly fast, much like the free internet connections that most hotels offer.
