The "Go Big - use whenever" plan gives you megabytes that you can use whenever you want. If you don't use your megabytes, they will stay in your account as long as your account has not been cancelled or deactivated. You will only need to refill after your megabytes have been used up.

Loving the initial Test - PING 133 - Download 869 kbps - Upload 934, not 4G but way fast enough for checking email and the web. Received the bonus $25 3gb 30 day plan which is now pending. Device is nice and has 2 Bright green lights on it. Also showing tenths of a MB with the online account.

Walmart offers a 2 week Full Refund policy on this Hotspot unit (NOT ON THE REFILL CARD). You can buy the unit, register it and pay $10 online and check it out yourself. Try at home and other locations where you intend using it; if it is satisfactory, keep it; else within 2 weeks return it for a Full Refund.
I have been using it for 3 weeks and am happy with it, mainly because it serves my purpose; checking Email, reading a few blogs. (NO NETFLIX, YOUTUBE etc..).
The issues are coverage and speed; expectation and experience is different for everyone; so best to try it out for yourself.
When I registered and purchased the first refill of $10 online, I was offered a free $25 credit; not sure whether this is for everyone or not.
If you are concerned about bandwidth usage, do a google on it to find tips on saving bandwidth. Opera turbo, Firefox with Image suppress option, Ad blocking etc.. may save you bandwidth. Without any of these, my normal Email check, blog reading of about 5 days (5 hours) consumed about 300MB.
One full charge seems to last about 4-5 hours.
I have been able to set this at a central location at home and get service up to 40 ft. through one wall.
