It’s obvious when you look around that every kind of household – from families of five to people just out of college living with roommates – is becoming more connected within its four walls. And, if you look a little closer, more and more of those connections are over a wireless network.
Smartphones, laptops and routers are no longer the only devices in the home in search of a network. Gaming consoles and smart TVs are in the mix, and they have been joined by non-traditional devices such as Wi-Fi weight scales, thermostats and light switches.
The common denominator for all of these data connections is the Verizon 4G LTE network, which offers high-speed connectivity to fit different lifestyles. Enter the new Verizon 4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice, the first broadband router to combine voice and data connectivity over Verizon’s reliable networks in one package.
The new router arrives with three monthly plans to choose from: Voice-only ($20), Data-only ($20), or Voice and Data ($30), when added to a Share Everything® Plan. Customers have the flexibility to move among the three different plans at any time.
People who travel the country and blog about their adventures and need a connection to upload pictures and publish their posts can connect to the nation’s largest 4G LTE network using the router. Voice capabilities on the router mean travelers or vacationers can bring their home number with them on their journeys. The router eliminates the need to search for Wi-Fi hotspots or pay hotel Wi-Fi and phone fees.
Small businesses can stay connected by plugging in the router and their phone and immediately creating a mobile office or remote work site – one with a single voice number their customers can remember. The router also has three Ethernet ports for users who need a hardwire connection to plug in their work laptops or network printers. The router requires only a power source and coverage to get started, which makes it easy to plug in and go. And with the router’s backup battery, users can still make voice calls during a power outage, as long as their phone does not require external power to operate.
The 4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice is available starting today online and in stores for $29.99 when purchased with the Voice and Data plan, or $49.99 when purchased with a Voice Plan or a Data Plan. Both require a new two-year activation. As a limited time promotion through the end of September, customers selecting the Voice and Data plan can receive the router for free with new two-year activation.
