Rogers reveals Ericsson-made Rocket Hub

Rogers today counted itself as one of the first North American carriers to offer an officially-sanctioned 3G wired and wireless router on its network. Rebadged as the Rocket Hub, the Ericsson-designed router can take cellular data, up to 7.2Mbps 3G over HSPA, and share it both over Wi-Fi as well as for those on an Ethernet link. The Hub is deemed particularly important for users who can't get Internet access for multiple devices but expect to remain in one place.

The Canadian provider hasn't said how much the Rocket Hub itself costs but does say it will require at least a $35 monthly data plan when it goes on sale. With existing plans, this would provide 1GB a month with automatic upgrades to the next tier of service, up to the $85 tier, rather than incur overage charges.
