hmmm 4GBs is the max and of course they will be happy to "charge" you for overage... Sounds like a complete waste unless they give you a unlimited option. Netflix would eat that data up in no time.

This article is incorrect, you do NOT have to purchase BOTH the hotspot and the "stick". You only have to purchase one. see http://www.netzero.net/ for the details. The hotspot allows up to 8 devices to connect.

You are correct, good catch.

How reliable can this be if it's using Clearwire's infrastructure? Isn't Clearwire almost bankrupt?

Sprint, T-Mobile (not 4G), AT&T, and Verizon all offer more data for the price, with Sprint having the best deal. Sprint also uses ClearWire for some of their 4G. Plus you can get the 4G device at a low cost or for free with a contract.

This NetZero isn't a good deal at all unless you use very very little data like only checking email with no attachments only a few times a week. You can use up your free 200MB monthly data limit in a matter of minutes at 4G speeds.

oh, you have to buy both units to get this to work? I was just going to use this as a supplement for my wireless data should I ever go over
