I've had an Asus netbook for nearly two years and finally decided to equip it with a mobile broadband card. Since my need for such a device would be very casual (I have a 15Mbps cable modem connection with wifi router at home and 3G data on my phone) I was looking for a service that wouldn't require some lengthy contract or a large investment up front. Virgin Mobile seemed to offer more economical plans ($20 for 300 MB) but the initial cost of their modem was significantly higher. ReadyMobile seemed to fit both requirements, especially with respect to start-up costs.

First, I'll talk briefly about the modem. It is a Sierra Compass 598 which runs on Sprint's network. Setting up the device might require a little patience for some users. While the instruction sheet says you can plug the USB modem right in and install drivers from imbedded flash memory, I was unable to do so. That will require installing those files from an included CD-ROM. For those of you, like myself, who have a netbook with no optical drive present, you'll need to copy the entire installation package, about 95 MB total, on to an SD card or USB flash drive. The driver software set-up process took longer than I expected, but eventually I was able to get everything running. To finalize the set-up and establish service, you have to call ReadyMobile and speak to a service rep. I was on hold for about 10 minutes, then spent another five minutes getting the account activated.

The service itself seems to work just fine. I was able to play full-sized CNN news videos with very little buffering, though I could tell things didn't run as smoothly when compared to my 15Mbps cable connection. That's to be expected given the difference between an EVDO connection and a cable connection over wifi.

I had a cable internet connection, then switched to this device (purchased new from Amazon) to see if I could save some money and get away from the contracts, etc. After a few weeks of using this device, it has me running back to/knocking down the door of the big contract companies again. For what it's worth, the software and device are essentially fool-proof to install, and you can share your purchased airtime among as many computers as you wish so long as they all have the Ready Broadband software installed and have the USB device attached to whichever computer you wish to have connected at the time. The USB device came with a small disc to install the software from a cd-rom drive. You can also download the latest version of the software from the Ready Mobile/Broadband website. Account activation over the phone was automated - didn't have to talk to a rep, just pushed a few buttons and things were ready to go.

Everything worked problem free for about two days. Then I started getting error messages every time I tried to connect. Ex: "The modem is already in use" "Device not connected". Or the device would automatically disconnect while I would be in the middle of viewing a video, typing an email, or simply surfing. The unexpected disconnections are frequent and frustrating when I have to reload a page (which knocks off more from my data balance) and start all over again from the beginning - I am in a major city where signal strength shouldn't be a problem. I often have to detach and reattach the USB device to get it recognized. Sometimes when restarting/reattaching, the Ready Broadband software freezes and locks up any open programs making me restart the whole computer.

Much of the marketing and description for this thing hides the fact that any data-throughput that you purchase expires 30 days after activation. I bought this thing hoping to use it sparingly every other month or so. A minimum $25 purchase that expires after 30 days, that's useless to the casual user. You might as well just get a real data plan. I plan to return it to amazon UNOPENED.

ReadyBroadband relies on the Sprint network to provide broadband coverage to those that purchase their cards at places like Walgreens and BestBuy. Buyer beware on this product. The ONLY reason I purchased this product was that I am on the fence about renewing a 2 year agreement with my current provider. I only wanted something that could tie me over for a few months. ReadyBroadband seemed like just that. Living in a major metropolitan area of Ohio and working in one as well, I figured I would get excellent speeds and be a happy camper until I made my mind up on my wireless provider. WRONG! First and foremost. The software out of the box is so outdated, you will be lucky if you can connect any at all. You will get message after message telling you that your account is depleted - reload it. Thinking that was what was needed, I was suckered into the $45 reload. I was also told that I needed to go to an "Internet Cafe" and upgrade the software. THEN everything should be OK. I followed their instruction like a good little soldier. Updated software, $45 charge on the device - NOTHING. Same error messages. Level 2 support tinkered around and eventually told me that I was not in an area that had any 3G coverage. Sprint has NO 3G coverage in Akron or Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. He then told me that if I could not get the device working at either location, there would be no problem issuing a refund. WRONG! Walgreens PROMPTLY gave me a refund. ReadyBroadband? No. I will have to wait another day, while yet another supervisor reviews my account and makes a decision on whether I am entitled to one or not. I will be posting this review everywhere I can find because this is absolutely ludicrous. Their Level 2 Support was very polite and tried to be helpful. Everybody else - far from it...Read more ›
