4gcommunity.org: Unlimited Hotspot Data $260 ($168 for 1 year + netgear fuse hotspot+ $10 membership fee)

I was checking out calyx institute and I believe they were overcharging their services. 4gcommunity.org is also a reseller of Mobile Citizen which runs on Sprint. You have the option of paying semi-annual ($90.00), quarterly ($48.00), or bi-monthly ($36.00) if yearly($168) does not work for you. I'm not a hundred percent sure of the qualifications but they seem to be open to anyone who wants affordable internet. At the very least, I was told families were able to take advantage of this. Essentially, you could be potentially be paying for Unlimited Data at the rate of $14/month. However, I believe you are stuck on the hardware you are given (fuse hotspot). They do not require proof of income. Sprint's service was not good in my area, but 4gcommunity was very detail-oriented in addressing questions!

Edit: now 4gcommunity is offering alternative LTE devices but the subscription price is more but you get access to the Spark/LTE plus Network! You can get a Spark modem (Netgear 6100D, may be better for reception) for $500 and comes with 12 month of service. Thereafter the subscription costs $255(yearly), $132(semi-annual), $70 (quarterly) or bi-monthly ($50.00). Alternatively, you can get the ZTE Pocket Wifi for $410 that also includes 12 months of service with the same subscription cost thereafter as the Netgear 6100D. This is potentially $21.25/month which is cheaper than other ISPs and "competitors" (they are generally limited bandwidth for the same or more price!).

There is now only a 7 day satisfaction guarantee in case things don't work out and you will have to pay for shipping.

Sprint. No thanks.

They make T-Mobile coverage look good. (And it's not.)

I agree with you there and that is why I got unlimited elsewhere. However, this is a very affordable option.

I just got the Fuse from the Freedompop deal, the battery life on this thing is incredible! If you are in a strong LTE area, Sprint is pretty quick

Looking for inexpensive internet for family member who is in a rough spot in life. Assuming one gets a good signal, is 4G workable for laptop use? Would it be extremely slow for loading content with photos? I would like to hear anyone's experience with this company. Thanks!

Credit card charge back if that happens, and it looks like they have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee too.

Other than this being on Sprint, I don't understand the hate for this offer. $21.67/month for home internet access is reasonable, and it drops to $14/month the second year.

What if they shut down the 3rd month? LOL and Sprint has very good service/coverage in the city and is very fast. I guess all the haters are country bumpkins lol

I didn't exactly load content with photos, but I did some good netflix streaming! I've used over 100 gigs on it. For a potential $14/month for unlimited internet is cheaper than many other alternatives I have seen. I guess nobody likes Sprint. Heck for 25/5 with Comcast in my area costs $40/month and you can get speeds near that (if not, you could potentially put antennas to boost signal) or higher.

I thought most companies either created by scammers or they just scam?

Really depends on your usage. I know you can safely use over 100 gigs on it and there does not seem to be deprioritization.
