I've been interested in getting a Wi-Fi hotspot for quite some time, but the question was which one, and on which carrier? I was originally thinking about Sprint or Virgin Mobile, but they don't have the greatest coverage in the world, and lets face it, Sprint's network sucks. I ruled out T-Mobile immediately since I already have a smartphone with tethering from them. So that left Verizon and AT&T. I have to admit I was tempted by Verizon and their large LTE footprint, but the fact is with them it's either LTE or 3g, and there are still lots of markets with no LTE coverage. I decided to go with AT&T. They have an expanding LTE network, but in the meantime they have a large HSPA+ 4g coverage that Verizon can't currently match. So with AT&T I get the almost universal immediate use of the HSPA+ 4g, LTE in some markets, and things will only get better as their LTE coverage expands.

As for the device itself, I have yet to find a spot with no 4g coverage. Speeds are fast (I've seen as high as 12 mbps on HPSA+, and as high as 23 on LTE), coverage is good, and the device seems to be reliable and easy to use. My only minor complaint is what others have mentioned, the battery life could be better. That's not really a big issue though, I always carry a power brick when I know I'll be using my devices outside the home for a while, so whenever I'm not walking around I just plug it in and charge it up. Also I suppose upload speeds could be a little better on HSPA+, but that's nitpicking. I won't be running servers off of it so the upload speeds are good enough for the most part.

Overall I'm very pleased with the device, and would definitely recomend it after two weeks of heavy usage while vacationing down at the beach.

I ordered this "mobile hotspot" because I needed on-the-go internet service. I took this "unlocked" device into AT&T and they set me up with service, no hassle. It works great! I even canceled my home internet service and I just use my mobile hot spot at home and where ever I go! It's small (about the size of my cell phone) and light weight. The battery only lasts a couple hours so I'm always sure to have a plug-in and car charger with me. The only problem I have had so far was when I was in a building with a metal roof. I couldn't get a signal there, but other people couldn't get signals on their cell phones either...so I guess there will always bee some cases where it doesn't work. Overall, I'm very happy with this device.

If you are in an area that does not have broad band and have good AT&T service this is for you. I am able to stream video and play xbox with very little issues. Ping in my area is around 120 and I only get 3G in my area. Not the greatest but it gets the job done. I leave it on all the time and have not seen any issues so far. I even bought a used one.

Buy this but do not put it on the AT&T plan 5Gig $50/ month plan instead get a sim card from Straight Talk. You get unlimited data for $45/ month. The unlimited is much needed if you are gaming as much as I am. It is hard to get the system and the sim to work correctly and multiple calls to ST's customer service were needed. I was even told it would not work a couple times. Just stick with it. (Hint: change the APN)

I've been using this device in a rural setting for over a month. I am very happy with the connectivity. The admin console, however, is rather poorly designed.

I have ATT cellular service on my mobile phone. I have to go outside and stand down by the road where the trees are cut back to get reliable voice and text service on my mobile phone. I only need to place the Elevate on a window sill to get 4 bars of 4G service inside. That is great reception.

The device constantly connects with 3 or 4 bars. Large trucks such as logging trailers and utility bucket trucks usually knock out the Internet for a few minutes, but it always comes back quickly. I may purchase an external antenna and run the coax inside to try and avoid this occasional interference.

The admin console or "management interface" is another story. The Elevate has a built in web server that the user can use to monitor and manage the device. There are some fundamental flaws with the design and execution of the interface:

* I have to logon to view the data plan. I don't have to logon to view the connectivity status, battery status, or # of users connected. This is illogical. The other parameters are displayed without credentials, there is no need for the amount of Gigabytes and days remaining monthly to be secured.

* I have to select "Advanced Settings" then click the "WAN" (wide area network) tab to view the signal strength. This is ridiculous. I've used two satellite Internet systems and both displayed the signal strength without clicking around

Neither the data plan or signal strength can be modified, only viewed. Requiring a logon and clicking around doesn't make any sense...

* There is no setting to disable broadcasting of the SSID.

No contract and great item. What's not to like? I was excited as can be to know that I could buy this device without a contract. Instead I just use it from month to month canceling when I'm at a job site that has Wi-Fi and activating it when I need remote access.
