Hi Matt,

Thanks for your very useful comments :).

From this side of the pond it looks like Franklin Wireless has several devices of possible interest.

I spent a LOT of time on the phone with Sprint. Mostly noise. On the same call the price went from $43/month to $15/month. Smoke and mirrors IMHO!

Franklin describes one device as suitable for ATMs and signs. Possibly a reasonably reliable unit? I am not sure about reset/restart and the other necessary issues for an embedded design.

If I were willing to have WIFI in the chain going to the internet, some consumer devices might be useful?

And of course there is that nasty issue of DDOS. Really a network issue despite all the hype. But am I supposed to pay for data overage if my remote device becomes someone's DDOS target?

Whichever ISP 'should', on their end, block packets not from the IPs I specify :).

If I may ask, which devices have you looked at? And how is your design coming. Also, thanks for the Arduino tip :).

Lots of fun :).

Wiz
