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.
You need to learn the difference between a gigabyte and a megabyte.

Thanks for bringing this up, I heard that this was the case for the free plan, but couldn't find it on their website. Can you post a link?

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.

Very clear indication of ignorance.

Virgin mobile = sprint = clear = this

Does anyone know if the usb stick works directly with a USB OTG adapter with an android phone?

If so I will order this immediately!

Edit: appears they have the $90 hotspot but it seems bulky.

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.

Does the hotspot have 3G fallback coverage? If so, this is handy to have around in case of emergencies...

Just get the hotspot ($89.99 refundable deposit) and use it with wifi from your phone.

That's what I thought at first too..there is no scale in that pic. It says you can slip it in your pocket though, so it is probably fairly small and portable.

I googled and found this:

It does appear to be pretty damn tiny. Only downside is I'll have yet another device to keep charged.

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?

thanks

this would be a better deal if overages were $0.01 per MB for the free plan. I hate having to have a bucket of data that I have to use or lose.

Cool. I only have a 250mb plan with my iphone. I rarely go over it so this would be nice.
