Due to various upgrades and changes in how I'm setting up my mobile data infrastructure, I'm selling off my Cradlepoint CTR500 and Sprint 3G EVDO Rev.A card.

Cradlepoint cellular broadband router

Novatel EVDO REV.A card for Sprint

I'm looking to sell the two of them together for $220/obo. All you'd have to do is activate a new sprint account and you're ready to rock.

For those of you who have an EC/34 or USB broadband card already, I'd sell the cradlepoint by itself for $120.

If you just want the card, that's $100. It'll work in mac or PC, as long as you have an EC/34 slot.

If you don't know what this is: think of it as a mobile hotspot. Plug it in (wall socket or 12v socket in the car, adapter for both included) and within 30 seconds it boots up and logs into the 3G card installed in it. It then re-shares the cellular data connection with any device that joins the WiFi on the device or plugs into its hard-wired ethernet port. Put in a car it turns you into a roving hotspot. Set on a desk at work and you have your own private internet to get out without the boss or IT department snooping all over you. And, since it's WiFi, it works in all the places that a straight broadband card won't -- like when you need to use custom VPN clients on your PC that hate cellular broadband.

Give me a holler if you have any questions!

Was this the replacement to the Stompbox?

Yup! I went to the Cradlepoint because it used some of the same code my stompbox did -- but was faster, better built, smaller and more robust. I'm now selling the Cradlepoint because I'm moving to something not on the market yet that I'm getting through my job. Huzzah for 4G testing. :)

Oh no problem. I'm in an area where WiMax is deployed... and unfortunately it's getting sub-3G speeds. :(

Yes! Used to use it with a USB aircard.

I find it amusing the sprint card is branded verizon in the photo :)

Honestly, I'd consider the kit if my contract hadn't been terminated earlier this week.

Sprint and Verizon are on the same cellular standard, CDMA/EVDO.

Gaaaah if I didn't already have a Sprint Mifi I'd have been all over this.
