Epic Pro 4G/5G Router
The Epic Pro Router is truly a a no compromise device and is compatible with all cellular carriers worldwide. Designed for automotive applications housed in a rugged metal case, it accepts 12 or 24V DC power input via included cord with easy to connect fork terminals. Extremely low average power draw of around 6W and max of 12W means you can leave the internet active in your Van/Camper/RV full time without worry.
Available with multiple modem options that blow the competition away. The included Cat16 modem is a great bang for the buck and you'll see speeds near the fastest available from a tower currently. The Cat20/5G modem option adds support for even more carrier aggregation and 5G bands. This puts your router on the cutting edge of cellular technology achieving the fastest speeds possible from a tower and ready for continued improvements as 5G is rolled out and improved upon. If these terms and ideas are confusing and you'd like to learn more read my write up about mobile internet and cellular connectivity.
Update: Currently not stocking the 5G/Cat20 option due to supply issues, and after extensive testing showing the Cat16 modem actually beat them in speedtests in some cases while staying cooler and running more efficiently. I will continue to test new modems as they are released and believe the next generation will be better as 5G evolves. I can still build a router with the current 5G/Cat20 in the meantime just ask. Modems are upgradable in the future as well without replacing your router.
Includes ability to use all tweaks required to get the fastest unthrottled speeds from your carrier. This is where our devices shine! If you buy a competitors device you are left to figure that out on your own and play cat and mouse games with carriers using plans in ways they weren't intended. Those devices also usually have IMEI numbers that aren't compatible or listed in carriers databases requiring you to activate a SIM in another device first, move it over and hope you aren't suspended at some point for doing so. All purchases come with 30 minute consultation on getting it setup on a plan that will work the best for your specific use case as all of the best options usually require jumping through some hoops and configuration to achieve. After support provided for the life of the device.
Not tech savvy and don’t want to mess with obtaining a plan and configuring the device? Receive the router ready to use out of the box with active service on Verizon. Please select the service option on the drop down. Only pay the $30 setup and activation cost, selected service billing setup will be sent to email prior to the router shipment. Autopay required. Current pricing is $69.95/mo for unthrottled** unlimited data. +$20 for Plus tier. See Verizon's coverage map.
Would you like your WiFi network name and password to be custom? Fill in the option, password must be 8 characters minimum. If not filled in will ship with network name EpicXXXX(4 numbers) and random 8 character password.
All routers come with WiFi Hotspot Manager. This allows you to easily view nearby WiFi networks and connect to them with your router to use that as your own internet. This could come in handy if you are somewhere where cellular service is spotty but there is available WiFi to use or if you are in a city with open coffee shop or public WiFi networks are available that are faster/more reliable than a cellular connection. It is recommended you use a roof mounted antenna with 2.4Ghz WiFi antennas inside for best results.
What's in the box? Epic Pro 4G/5G Router with selected modem installed internally and pre-configured, 1x 12-24V 6 foot power connector wire with fork terminals, 2x 5.8Ghz WiFi antennas, 2x 2.4Ghz WiFi antennas, 2x 4G LTE/5G antennas*. 02/22 Update - Fixed antennas now included, no more corded antennas.
Would you like to plug the router directly into a household wall outlet? With the included 4 pin harness to barrel adapter you can use a 12V or 24V AC/DC adapter. These adapters are common and you may have one laying around. It needs to be at least 12V 3A or 24V 1.5A. I also have them for sale if you'd like to add one to your order Wall Plug. Want to use the adapter to plug directly into a vehicle style 12V socket (cigarette lighter)? You can with a common adapter to barrel plug I have some for sale as well. Car Adapter
* The included cellular antennas will work and get you going but I highly recommend adding a roof mounted antenna for the best speeds and service if you often are in rural areas or areas far from cellular towers.
Antennas in stock best suited for the Cat16 Modem Option :
- Parsec Husky (epicoffgrid.com) - Great antenna with 4x Cellular & 2x WiFi. This lets you get the best cellular coverage, and broadcast your 2.4Ghz WiFi outside your rig, as well as pick up external WiFi networks to use as your own source of internet.
- LAIRD VLT ANTENNA 2x2 MIMO LTE - Excellent antenna for the price, 2x2 MiMo Cellular connections only.
For the Cat20/5G Option I recommend the Parsec Husky 7 in 1 - check current stock status may be special order - lead time about a week.
** Like all carriers and cellular plans my Verizon plan is subject to network management during times of tower congestion where data speeds may be slowed compared to devices with higher priority. Video streams at 480p which can be avoided with use of a VPN. For $20/mo additional upgrade to Unlimited Plus - highest data priority for first 35GB and full1080p HD video streaming.
Reoccurring payments for service must be setup after purchase before router ships. If you'd like to cancel or suspend service please provide 30 days prior notice. Service can be paused for up to 3 months each year, while paused service price is reduced to $20/mo.
