AT&T preps a durable Wi-Fi hotspot meant for the outdoors

So, you’re on the jobsite or off the road. If you need to be connected and capable beyond what, say, a Galaxy S6 Active (or Galaxy S7 Active) can afford, well, hopefully you have that beefy, cased-up laptop with you. Well, that’s the capable part down, but what about being connected? Keep in mind that you’re still in rough and tumble territory, here.

Well, AT&T is about to release the Unite Explore. It’s the first mobile Wi-Fi hotspot with an IP65 rating and that meets the MIL-STD-810G standard. That’s good to protect the device from four-foot drops, light-pressure water jets and dust.

The hotspot can support 15 devices through Dual-Band 802.11 ac/b/g/n and last up to 22 hours on a charge. The battery can also help charge your devices, too. The touchscreen interface allows users to set up a guest Wi-Fi connection and allows content filtering. It can also take in LTE-A signals from compatible international carriers, too.

It’s on sale starting Friday for $49.99 on a two-year contract.
