  • “This is a perfect fit for locations with spotty internet reliability where 4G is an option. Even without installing an external antenna, I can get over 2Mbps via 4G in my computer closet. As my primary internet connection is Wi-Fi, the 4G backup has saved me more than once already. Highly recommended.”

    – Amazon.com Customer

     

    “Our small business engages in “failure is not an option” financial activities where a down/unreliable internet connection can spell thousands of dollars of losses in just a few minutes. Of course, we have uninterruptible power to all of our critical networking and computing, but we were also looking for a solution that provides a Hot Failover internet connection and this little router does that beautifully. Powers your SME with an add-on of unbreakable connectivity.“

    – Amazon.com Customer

     

    “The conventional Wi-Fi on this router is strong. After implementing this router, we were able to stop using Wi-Fi extenders to boost the signal of a consumer-grade Wi-Fi router in our multi-story town home.”

    – Amazon.com Customer

     

    “This product is a great choice for any home user, SOHO or small business.”

    – Amazon.com Customer

     

    “I use the router and the extension module to combine two mobile broadband contracts to bundle it into one internet access. It nearly doubles my internet speed compared to one single mobile access. There are not many routers around who really have this feature. At least not in the consumer range.”

    – Amazon.com Customer

     

    “No doubt, the Balance 20X router seems to be the ticket for the SOHO market right now. It’s also nice that it has a built-in cellular modem, can accommodate a second in the flex module slot… and even a third via USB. Not sure there’s much reason not to have one.”

    – Reddit.com User Feedback

     

    “Flex Module Mini has expanded for multiple WAN types – Peplink now offers versions as CAT18 LTE module, 5G module, and a DSL module!”
