I need to find the best deal for several contract-free portable WiFi Hotspots to service tablets that my staff have gotten for when they are out of the office. 1 or 2 GB per month before overage charges will suffice. I'm looking for one of the 4 major wireless carriers for their coverage in my area (South Florida) - those being Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. However, I am not opposed to getting hooked up with one of their pre-paid brands as long as they've got the coverage.
I'd be extremely surprised if you could find three WWAN devices for $25/mo per device.
Looks like I can get the MiFi 2200 for Virgin Mobile which runs atop Sprint's 3G wireless network for $123.54 per device from Walmart with free shipping to store, then the monthly service (which is a Walmart exclusive apparently) is $19.98 per month for 1 GB per device.
So far that looks like my best option for my needs. I've got three employees that will be needing these and if one gets close to their 1GB limit I can just have them trade devices with another that has more unused bandwidth in order to try to avoid overages.
I will keep looking though.
They do offer a plan starting at $20 a month but its only for 200mb!
So the unlimited plan is better. You should try contacting them and see if you can get a business discount for their services.
I would but I just see it as a waste of time asking for a discount for only three devices with service... that seems like a drop in the bucket for them. I can see them willing to give a discount for 100 devices and service, but 3.... I just don't know.

That is nice too since T-Mobile has solid 4G and 3G coverage around here. However, it costs $50 for 1GB that expires in 30 days, or $30 for 300MB that expires in 30 days, or $10 for 100MB that expires in 30 days.
I think I like the 1GB for $20 on Virgin Mobile that lasts for 30 days on slightly slower EVDO 3G service -- that won't be as easy to blow through the megabytes since they flow slower
