Though we have coverage at my house, looking at the map was what finally made me decide against this one. No coverage in two of the three big cities we're traveling to this year. If it had 3G also enabled, I'd be all over it, but 4G coverage only makes it useless to me.meh,
Another so called company with absolutely NO coverage except in Major Major cities. Good idea, but no real network backing to make it worth it. I'm sticking to my Mifi with a REAL wireless provider.
I thought that as well...one small detail you will run into is the huge difference in reception between the Evo and a hotspot device such as the Overdrive. After 30 days with both devices the stand alone mifi unit would pull a much, much better signal both outside and even more of a difference inside my home or office. 4G on the Evo rarely, if everr went past 3mb, sometimes near 4mb while the Overdrive would pull 5mb to bursts of 9 or 10mb download speeds.If you got coverage might be worth to get. I would rather just go to sprint and root an evo and use it as a hotspot. Save yourself that $30 a month
No, it isn't.Its a heck of a lot closer than your initial post.
The cheap device and no contract plan work ONLY with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. It will not work with any other handheld or computer. Check the site for details.My two hour ride from my home to school has full coverage with clear.
I might go for it since I do not have any other mobile data plans.
Plus it works with all devices just not ipad and such.
Yes, WiMAX is more of a enhancement to 3G technology, but its considered pre-4G or 3.9G.No, it isn't.
WiMAX and LTE are both not 4G technologies, whatever Sprint wants to call it.
4G does not exist yet, so a company advertising itself as such is employing very misleading naming conventions.
4G is a standard, whether you're referring to one standard under its umbrella or the entire umbrella. Arguing otherwise is needlessly pedantic and pointless.
Or because it isn't, and they're capitalising on an ignorant demographic of consumers by diluting something that has an actual definition in favour of marketing shenanigans.To say this isn't 4G is unnecessarily splitting hairs because you don't like their marketing.
It would appear that they are MAC locked to only iDevices. I'm sure it would be possible to work around that restriction, but personally I couldn't tell you how to do it. I've never spoofed a MAC address on a laptop before.Can someone who is way more tech savvy than me help me with figuring out how to change the settings on my laptop to make it work with the ispot? I ordered one of these today and it's coming from UPS tomorrow, it;ll be nice to have with my ipad and iphone but there's gotta be some way to trick it into working with my laptop too right? If it makes a difference I have a Compaq computer running windows Vista. Thanks for any help in advance.
