Verizon FiveSpot and 1GB pre-paid data plans coming next month?
The Verizon Wireless MiFi 2200 has been out for a little over a year now, with it allowing you to connect up to 5 devices to it via a Wi-Fi connection, which then in turn are connected to Verizon's EVDO Rev A data network. While it can benefit business users in the US, it can't be used when traveling overseas. To solve this problem Verizon is expected to introduce the new FiveSpot global ready 3G mobile hotspot by the end of August. As the name implies, you can connect up to 5 devices to it via Wi-Fi, and it will be able to connect to CDMA EVDO networks and GSM UMTS networks in other countries. Pricing of the FiveSpot or its global data plans haven't been revealed yet.

The same tipster goes on to say that around the same time in August, Verizon will introduce a new 5GB pre-paid data plan (for US use only) for a whopping $80/month. This will add to the current pre-paid data plans that include 100MB for 1 day usage at $15, 300MB for 1 week at $30, and 1GB for 1 month at $50. So compared to that, the 5GB pre-paid data plan at $80 isn't that bad, though it is still more than the standard (non-prepaid) 5GB plan at $60 per month.

Virgin mobile (lol)isin't even a real cellphone company. You might as well say that you can get unlimited talk, text and internet for $50 and compare it to $119.99 for Verizon or AT&T. You can buy a Verizon modem for $129.99 and go month to month with real 3g coverage with 5gigs for $60. Mifi is a new luxury.

Virgin mobile is Sprint so you get real 3g coverage I'm sorry but VZW treats their prepaid customers like shit and doesn't realise the opportunity there they rather straight talk take their own customers
