Where do you get "100MB/mo" from? This is 500GB a month at close to free.
Virgin Mobile has crappy 3G and in the Atlanta area the coverage is horrible. This is 4G and I haven't tried it yet but I have friends who have Clear (who supplies the WiMax) and they say it is good.
Sorry your right it is 500MB/mo. I stated it wrong.
Virgin Mobile uses the same Clear Wimax network as FreedomPop. I've traveled to Atlanta plenty this last year with my Clear 3G/4G Hotspot (I'm on an old unlimited Wimax + 5GB 3G of data plan) and I get decent coverage with Wimax around town. However, there are many instances where I cannot get Wimax signal and drop down to 3G speeds. Yes 3G speeds are lacking quite a lot but it's better than having nothing.
If that is the case, then I am ignorant, but I don't think Virgin Mobile is exactly the same as Clear as far as their towers and coverage. So may be wrong, although I hope not, because I had a VM phone that I had to return due to terrible coverage around here in metro ATL.
But not risking much with this deal but maybe $10 and some time, so it's worth a shot.
what kind of download/upload speeds can i expect by using the hotspot? i'm not really familiar with 3G/4G lingo. is it comparable to residential use internet services through companies like charter, time warner, or verizon fios?
also, i'm assuming that if i am happy with the free service, i can always upgrade to one of the paid plans at a later time. is this the case?
