Rogers Announces MiFi For CanadaPosted by Mike Yawney on March 31st, 2010 View Comments
The MiFi is a portable WiFi router and 3G modem, small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. Slightly larger than a deck of playing cards, the modem allows up to 5 wireless devices to connect to the internet via Rogers 3.5 G wireless network. The MiFi is completely portable as it doesn’t need to be plugged in. A rechargeable battery let’s you take the device with you on the go.
We were big fans of the Rogers Rocket Hub which instantly creates a wireless hotspot in your home. The main difference is the fact the MiFi is cordless (4 hours of use off a single charge) and the upload speeds are faster, 5.7 Mbps compared to 2.1 with the Rocket Hub. A 16GB MicroSD card can also be inserted into the MiFi which allows users to shares files.
Rogers is selling the device outright with no plan for $249. For those who want a discount, signing up for a three year contract will reduce the price to $49.99.
