More comprehensive analysis, personalized to individual needs, can be undertaken using GAMBOD (GSA Analyzer for Mobile Broadband Devices) www.gsacom.com/gambod
GAMBOD is a search and analysis tool developed by GSA for mobile broadband devices, allowing searches by supplier, form factor, features, peak downlink and uplink speeds, and operating frequency. Results are presented as a list, or as a spreadsheet, or in charts. An RSS feed can be used to alert when new devices are added to the database. Charts may be inserted into documents or presentations, subject to accreditation of GSA as the source. GAMBOD is available for use ONLY by GSA website registered users whom GSA has categorized as being from mobile network operators or from GSA member organizations. Further information is provided in the report.
