Sierra Wireless Tri-Fi 4G LTE Hotspot Announced


Sprint will soon offer the Sierra Wireless 4G LTE Tri-Fi Hotspot, the first-ever device to combine 4G connections over both LTE and WiMAX networks. With the additional capability to connect to a 3G network outside of 4G coverage areas, Sierra Wireless Tri-Fi Hotspot provides the best combination of speed and coverage to Sprint customers and allows families, small businesses and traveling co-workers to easily share high-speed connections.

Similar to Sierra Wireless' Overdrive Pro 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, this device offers a highly informative display screen that provides all the information needed for daily use, including the hotspot name and access code, battery life, number of devices connected, and whether the current connection to the network is 3G or 4G.
