LTE GSM hotspot device sold out so the link directs you to the global hotspot which is only HSPA. Be careful when ordering. You may want to wait until the have the LTE GSM Hotspots back in stock.

Looks like FP is offering GSM LTE service now. Previously all coverage was through Sprint's CDMA network or AT&T HSPA via global sim.

This unit looks like its running LTE on AT&T. As usual, it comes with all the free month of premium services so make sure you downgrade everything to the free plan for 200 mb of data per month + upto 500 if you add friends. Use a prepaid card to avoid unwanted charges.

Looks like they will also offer a sim card only for $10 but there doesn't seem to be a link yet to purchase. I personally would want this over the global sim if we can get LTE

You can order the GSM LTE sim by following these instructions:

Here's the data sheet for the MiFi 2 [nvtl.com].

Bands:
• 4G LTE: 700/850/1900 MHz, AWS
• DC HSPA+/HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS: 850/1900/2100 MHz
• EDGE/GPRS: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

The 2100 DC HSPA+ band means the device (there's no mention of international service) would in theory work on 3G (up to 42MBps, some call 4G) in most the rest of the world outside the Americas. It's missing the 900 band which is also used in some countries (not nearly as much).

For LTE bands this is U.S.-centric. For instance, none of the bands you'd need for Europe are supported.

The SIM, if/when available on it's own, is more interesting. Keep in mind though that at LTE speeds, you can blow through a few hundred MB of data much more quickly.

I though this was cheaper in the past? Can you just swap out SIMs when you get near data cap?

I have the hotspot (with the global sim) already and it's really nice. The battery lasts at least 8 hours.
The current drawback is the global sim is so slow that it's an exercise in frustration. Making wifi calls on the sim is nearly impossible.
A new sim that is US specific would definitely help! Hopefully this pans out.

Wow, at $25/month for 2gb, I can just add another line to my 4 line Cricket account and it'd average $20 then use it for hotspotting with a limit of 2.5gb. Or $30 for 8gb which would make a much better hotspot than this. Albeit, the data is throttled to 8mb/s.

It's 700MB for $0.

Where did you see it cheaper for 4G AT&T?

I only saw 3G AT&T and 4G Sprint previously.

You're right. I had jumped straight into wiki thinking it was only available with premier or premium.

THIS MERCHANT IS A GIANT SCAM ! DO NOT FALL FOR SPAM LIKE THIS ON SD . Thousands of complaints against Freedom Poop with the BBB and FTC
There are two kinds of Freedompop customers:

1. Smart people. These are people that take advantage of the free service and come out ahead. They are smart enough to add more than 10 freedom friends (in case people cancel), downgrade to free, remove premium options, and disable top up. Those people post these deals.

2. Dumb people. These are people too dumb to know how to downgrade to free, how to disable premium services, and how to disable top up. They don't know how to get 500MB extra each month with freedom friends, and how to allocate data for an additional 500MB. You will know these people, because they blame their mistakes on Freedompop, and leave negative reviews on BBB and complain to the FTC. They also post comments that Freedompop is a scam, but in reality they scammed themselves by not being smart.

Which category do you fall under?

But I agree with you... dumb people should stay away from this.
