Sprint ships 4G desktop modem

Wireless provider Sprint is now offering a 4G desktop modem, the CPEi25150 from Motorola. The device uses the WiMAX network to deliver Internet speeds that can be up to ten times faster than current 3G networks, or just under two times as fast in the worst case scenario; as a fixed modem it's meant for those who may use 4G as their primary connection at home. Sprint offers the 4G service in 27 cities and lets users port the modem around.

The Motorola modem is compatible with all modern operating systems. It sports dual integrated antennas and is said to deliver the best radio performance in its class. Users get firewall protection and have the ability to forward ports for specific tasks.

The 4G desktop modem costs $100 after both a $150 immediate rebate and a two-year contract at $50 per month.
