Learn MoreT-Mobile's Expanding, Super-Fast 4G Mobile Broadband Network
As of August, 2011, T-Mobile has upgraded its traditional 3G network to HSPA+ 4G in 190 major metropolitan areas across the U.S.--covering 200 million people across the country--with plans to continue rolling out this network upgrade throughout 2011. With typical download speeds that are on par with or faster than competing 4G technologies, T-Mobile's HSPA+ network provides fast data speeds--up to 3 times faster than AT&T and Verizon's standard 3G networks--while allowing simultaneous voice and data capabilities for the ultimate wireless voice and data experience. You'll enjoy faster Web browsing, uninterrupted video streaming, and quicker app downloads.
T-Mobile's 4G mobile broadband network (powered by HSPA+) provides a theoretical capability of up to 21 Mbps peak download speeds, with average download speeds typically in the 5 to 8 Mbps range.
In areas not currently served by T-Mobile's 4G network, this mobile broadband hotspot will connect to the 3G network.

The 4G Hotspot was a bit more expensive than other products, but I liked the idea of no contract, and being able to buy a gig of data-time for 30 bucks just for the times that I wanted or needed to use it.
My main objective was to be able to send/receive email and text from my iPod Touch and laptop. I understood that with only one gig, I would not be streaming movies from Netflix or watching YouTube videos. For the two weeks that I used it, primarily for email, I used half a gig of data.
Even though I bought the HotSpot from Amazon, when it arrived, I walked to the T-Mobile store in my neighborhood to have it activated. I did, subsequently, have problems setting up the password (and I never was able to change the SSID name), but I called the tech line and they were very helpful in solving my password problem.
The first time I went to T-Mobile's site to check how much data I had used, there was a glitch and it said I had used it all. When I checked the next day, it was working and I was able to see my correct data usage. In general, after getting used to using it, with a bit of trial and error, it turned out to be an amazing product. Almost every place I used it, I received 4G service. It was particularly helpful when I was out and about with my iPod Touch.
It's true, as others have mentioned, that sometimes it kind of "locks," but I found turning it off and then turning it on again (a kind of reboot) fixed that problem.Read more ›
I lent the device to a friend who used it with her Kindle fire and she loved the speeds.
Had problems activating it. I followed the directions but when it got to keying in required numbers (sim and imei) I was missing one in the package. I had to call customer service which was a hassle because I was disconnected twice and oh hold for a while. I would recomend going to a T mobile store to activate. However, setting up the wifi was easy.
The data pricing is lousy. $10 for 100 MBs/$30 for 2 GBs/$50 for 3GBs. It expires 30 days after use. I am just going to use it on trips.
Bottom line: good device for web browsing on the go. Pricy data and inconvenient activation.
The Customer Service is also terrible, as they told be they don't have a Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the device. Traveling through the central state such as Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois, I am only able to connect in Chicago. Des Moines and Omaha do not work for me.
I would recommend that someone in the market for a mobile broadband card, not use T-Mobile and especially this device.
