It's a neat solution where for less then DSL you can get out of band  
over evdo to all your console ports/ethernet, and it also gives you a  
POTS line over the evdo.  I commented on how this was needed for years  
and Chris Cook over there actually went out and built this neat box.   
I believe it runs about $35-40 MRC and it's a much quicker way to  
upload new code then a pots line.

Neat part is if it works you do not pay the carrier hotel a cross  
connect MRC fee. That adds up rapidly.
