I have to say that when I first considered purchasing this unit I was skeptical because I have family members in my area (North Jersey) who have Sprint 4G (which VM uses) and did not have great things to say about it. Even though I looked on the web site and was covered by the coverage map, I still was a somewhat skeptical but I figured at least I could get a decent back up portable 3g device. The day I received the unit from Amazon within about 20 minutes of un-boxing it, charging it, and going online to VM it was ready to surf, and surprisingly I gotta a pretty decent (not great) 4G steady signal.

Speed:
This is probably what most people really want to know (me included), with the 4G I'm getting so far I would say that this unit is definitely faster than DSL (digital slower line- like one old cable ad put it) not quite as fast as Cable, and not anywhere near FIOS when its working properly (but is anything for home users). Rather than talk about kbps or MBps I'll just keep it in general terms, most standard 3-5 minute Youtube videos or online news video either partially loads or fully loads (meaning most or the entire video can be played not just the first part) within 5-15 seconds, full HD videos don't fully load quite as fast (more like 15-25 secs) but so far I haven't gotten the wheel mouse of video buffering death that was common with DSL. Webpages including Amazon's load up pretty instantaneously (1-2 secs) depending on the browser (Firefox of course), and sites that are very photo heavy like Huffpost or sports sites load no problem.

Data Usage:

If you are thinking of using this to replace your hard-wire internet service I would give a few cautions.

I purchased this unit 2 weeks ago. I almost made the mistake of opting for the Clear Hotspot. Thank goodness I didn't. I have been using Virgin Mobile Broadband to go for 3 years with kinda shaky service in the beginning, but pretty good results once you understand how to use the unit using the User Menu.

The Sierra Wireless unit is compact and very business like in appearance. The billing options are preferable to getting stuck in a contract. I left the unit OFF and charged overnight planning to activate the next day. At first, I had problems because they don't tell you what the Administrative Password is. That password is simply "password." Then later you pick your own.

After that small initial snafu, everything was very smooth. I'm getting 4G coverage where I am, after figuring out how to control the unit in the Account Settings menu. In my suburban area, I usually get a 40% signal inside the house, and outside it has varied from 40 % up to 100% 4G signal. The speeds vary according to signal strength. However, at even 20% in a weak signal area, it it steady and has never bumped me off. The only time the unit has turned off for no reason is when the temperature gets high during simultaneous charging and heavy use. Then simply unplug and run on battery and just continue with heavy use it won't fail.

So far, this is an incredible system that makes those large Wall-Mounted routers and bulky connections into telephone jacks completely obsolete. This unit is smaller than a cellphone . . . battery life away from the charger may be an issue but I will follow up in a few weeks with that info.

But overall I am very impressed with this money saving device. I no longer have to pay for internet at home and the office.

*** DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT! While this was a great device several years back, this is no longer a viable choice. If my information is
*** correct it will no longer work as of sometime around Nov. 2015 due to network changes. It was good while it lasted.
***

***
*** Update: As of Nov. 1st, 2013 the unlimited 4G data plans are no longer available. This means this device is no longer a *** good choice, in my opinion, unless your use is very occasional and light.
***
*** If you have an existing plan, it can be kept for two more years (as I understand it) as long as you renew every month.
***

Quick summary: Excellent device with minor limitations, cheapest mobile hotspot plan I've found to date with no contract. Very good 4G Wimax speeds if you are in an area with good coverage (usually a city environment).

Pros: Simple to use, good speeds, great web page device portal, small and well built, battery life of 3-3.5 hours, but can easily be used for an entire day with extra batteries or external battery pack. Very portable. Works well even with a marginal 20% (weak) signal. Neat no wifi (secure) USB tether option works very well. Fast network access to internal storage (microSD) card via wifi (share option). Cheap data plan: no contract, $35/month for 10GB 4G data, plus 2 GB 3G.

Cons: Can run hot under heavy use (e.g. full speed continuous downloads), setup can be confusing, speeds throttled to 2 Mbps after 10GB of 4G data usage, unsure as to how long Virgin Mobile will offer current attractive data plans (no guarantees).

My experience: Works extremely well in my 4G Wimax rich coverage area. Extremely flexible configuration options and features. Very high speeds in my area 6-10 Mbps down, .8-1.5 Up. Avg 8.5/1.
