Global data travelers are ready to take on the $99.99 Verizon Fivespot
It's been in the pipelines for quite some time as we slowly first heard about it back in the summer, but now it's finally being officially introduced here for those Verizon customers looking for a solution when they're abroad. Big Red announced today that the ZTE Fivespot global hotspot device will be going on sale stating on October 7th for the price of $99.99 with an accompanying 2-year agreement.

Customers have been yearning for an all-in-one solution for their mobile data service needs, and the Fivespot definitely fits the bill since it packs a host of support domestically and internationally. It has connectivity for CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A/Rev. 0: 800/1900MHz, WCDMA/HSDPA/HSUPA: 850/1900/2100MHz, and GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900MHz.

As for monthly post paid monthly charges, Verizon offers either their $39.99/month plan which offers 250MB of data with $0.10/MB overage and $59.99/month for 5GB data allotment with $0.05/MB overage.

Prepaid customers can get in as will since they offer $15 for 100MB/1 day of use, $30 for 300MB/1 week, $50 for 1GB/30 days, and $80 for 5GB/30 days.

Finally, global trotters will have their choice of either a $129.99/month plan which offers 5GB on domestic usage and in Canada, plus 100MB of data in select countries with a $0.005/KB overage charge. Additionally, they have a $219.99/month plan which offers everything that the $129.99/month has except that it provides for 200MB of data in select countries.

That pricing is crazy. It's almost like paying international roaming.
