I have used 3G in the past as a backup for some sites and I was pretty
impressed with the performance and the ease of configuring it in ios

We are looking to use the Cisco 3G/4G card

for about $250 for the 3G and $350 for the 4G.****

What plan are you using? My htc thunderbolt has unlimited 4g on the phone
and for my hotspot so I'd imagine there is something similar for standalone

I have been very happy with the preference of the VZW network.  Both 3G and
4G.  The issue we have is that they have a 5GB cap.  We have tested both the
3G and 4G HWIC for cisco and have been very happy with the hardware.****

I'm in princeton, nj and I recently moved into a new place and had no
internet for about a week and had my router in client mode grabbing hotspot
from my phone and it worked surprisingly well. Of course latency can be a
bit jumpy but my speeds overall were better than the neighbors comcast :) I
also pulled down about 150gb over that week and each day I was waiting for
verizon to pull the plug but it never happened. Speeds were consistently
around 20/10.****


I looked around but couldnt find any reasonably cheap 4G interface cards
for any of the major router vendors otherwise I might have actually
considered it as my home needs are pretty basic.****

I was hoping to use LTE for a large number of sites we are about to roll
instead of DS1s.  But looks like we will go down the TDM route.

Well they are two completely separate companies .  I would think that the
LTE network would be a good replacement for DS1 type services.

My guess is no.

Yes, I bet vzw buys from vzb, but not the other way round. Whatever you
the vz LEC does not want to give 40 some cents on the dollar to Vodafone
the other part of the vzw ownership.

Not to mention that LTE is an IP service and ds1 is tdm...

Who else would they use? I would presume they are eating their own dog
If not, that's very sad. :)
