Anyone know of a mobile hotspot plan that beats using the integrated 4G?

Call me cheap, frugal, whatever, I don't want to shell out big bucks for data. Currently I have a phone I hardly use, with no data or texting at all, so I'm open to all options. It could be a dedicated mobile hotspot, or a smartphone with wifi sharing enabled. Anyone got a good deal on something around 5GB/mnth data at 4G speeds? It can be standalone or a package with talk minutes as well, though I hardly use them.
Thanks!

I tether my iPad to my iPhone for 3G data via Verizon for 20.00 for 2GB per month. How do you share wifi though?? If you have a wireless router at home you can use that for both your iPhone and iPad. Check with your cell phone provider. Or get some sort of device i.e. mifi from Verizon. I don't know what the other wireless providers offer. You would have to check online. 5GB will never be super cheap as separate iPad 3G data for 2GB is 30.00 on Verizon.

I have an unlimited plan too, but they don't offer it anymore with verizon. The new ones are the ones that run around $50.

Hi Patrizia_NC, which cable company had that rate, $39.95? Is it 4G?
