    Seems a little expensive. i've been using a pay as you go mifi from 3 which cost about £60. Works well on the occasions I need it.

    My want to check the international rates. I dont know about virgine mobile but I just called verizon and this is what their fees are.

    $129 for 250MB international data
    $24 per Megabyte while on a cruise.

    I checked already and PR is included within "US Plans" (actually so is my T-Mobile service :)

    Yes I think it's expensive but I like the fact that I will only use it 4 times a year (if I go every quarter to PR)

    I'm struggling with returning my Sprint Overdrive in favor of this......only because of the pay as you go / no contract deal. The Overdrive rocks.

    FYI - Virgin piggybacks the Sprint network.

    20$ to watch a 1 hour video (300mb) puts this into perspective :eek: for me. I don't plan on using my iPad much at all outside of the house. In case I do, I will tether it to my WiFi enabled Droid......

    How much more are you paying to tether your droid and how much bandwidth can you use a month.

    Cool, I have my T-Mobile HTC G1 rooted using Wifi Tether and it's great.
