It just went live today and I placed my order. $79 for the hotspot and $14 for 1GB. I know hotspots are a dime a dozen but here are the key points that work for me
- No contract
- No minimums
- Earning 100MB to share
I have a unique situation - my city doesn't even have Clearwire coverage but here I don't need it because I have 4G LTE and of course wifi at work and home. Where I really need this is when I am going to LA to visit friends and my family. My parents only have dialup. And free wifi is not at all widespread like you'd think. I can tether but that can rack up data really fast. With no contracts and no minimums, I can spread the 1GB balance over weeks or months. If I don't travel or use my hotspot for weeks at a time, the data just sits there waiting for me.
Not to mention the cool integration with Facebook and the really really well designed site/experience. It honestly feels like a super clean product. The user experience (just from the blog/signing up/ordering/etc) is impressive.
