According to Verizon:
Verizon, for example, says its faster speeds will only kick in like a turbocharger on a car engine, when a customer is downloading a lot of data at once. Otherwise, customers “will continue to enjoy typical download speeds” of 5 to 12 Megabits per second, or Mbps, Verizon VZ -0.44% says. And while the maximum possible speed of LTE-Advanced is 225 Mbps or more, even when carrier aggregation kicks in, customers’ maximum download speeds will increase generally by only 50% over regular LTE, Verizon says.

Cradlepoint released a new M2M gateway that will be available soon, the IBR350. This is a non-rugged indoor device, with a plastic enclosure. It is primarily targeted at ATMs, Kiosks, digital signs, and telemetry applications. Because its non-rugged, its meant for indoor stationary use only. Vehicles and mobile applications should still use the IBR600/650.
The CradlePoint COR IBR350 is also 4G LTE ONLY. There is no 3G fall back. There is also only 1 ethernet port for a wired LAN device. No WiFi, and no WAN port for a wired connection. That in mind, this is also a much lower cost device than a 600/650

Pepwave/Peplink’s Balance and Max series of routers have become enormously popular with enterprise users and networking gurus thanks to their unrivaled feature set, but their price puts them out of reach for some users, and not everyone needs all of the advanced features these routers offer. Enter the Pepwave Surf SOHO, Pepwave’s new 3G/4G WiFi router aimed at the home and small office market. The Surf SOHO offers a number of the most-used features offered by Pepwave’s higher-end enterprise routers, including 3G/4G USB modem support, failover, WiFi as WAN, QoS optimization, bandwidth monitoring, and advanced VPN functionality (“PepVPN”), but its affordable price tag (MSRP $129.99) and easy-to-use interface make it perfect for home and office users looking for a quality networking solution without breaking the bank.

Peplink introduces what they consider may possibly be ‘the World’s Easiest VPN.’ PepVPN is what builds the foundation to Peplink/Pepwave’s SpeedFusion services, which include SpeedFusion Hot Failover and SpeedFusion Bonding. Peplink’s three-tiered structure for PepVPN gives any customer, consumer or enterprise, the option to start simple and expand from there.
Starting with the first tier, PepVPN, you’ll notice it’s quite similar to IPsec VPN, but offers more benefits than your traditional IPsec VPN capable router. First and foremost, the tunnel can be set up over any IP connection. So, as long as you have a public or static IP address from your ISP on at least one end, you’ll still be able to establish a tunnel between 2 Peplink/Pepwave routers.
