Offers quad-band 3G, auto failover

Nova Media in Berlin and Belgium company Option have made available a combo router with support for both broadband and quad-band 3G which supports up to 14.4 Mbit per second download and 5.76 Mbit per second uploads, compatible with most 3G networks worldwide. The GlobeSurfer III+ also offers DSL failover, automatically switching to cellular data and switching back when the broadband connection returns.

In addition, the router offers the usual features found on consumer routers, including DynDNS and VPN support, DMZ-Host support and the latest security protocols. The device also features a USB2 port to allow file and printer sharing, and even offers a standard telephone jack for making and receiving calls using a DSL connection. Wi-Fi access can be turned off if an Ethernet connection is preferred.

Because the GlobeSurfer III+ is sold unlocked, SIM cards from most mobile networks (including prepaid cards) can be used. The web interface of the router can also be used to send, receive and manage SMS text messages. For 3G connections, the router supports 850/900/1900/2100 MHz bands, and can also use EDGE/GPRS connections in the 850/900/1800/1900 MHz bands.

The GlobeSurfer III+ sells for around $327 plus applicable taxes (if any) and shipping.
