Verizon's MiFi to offer shared 3G service
With the 3G service becoming ever more prevalent across the country, Verizon Wireless unveiled the MiFi that will share 3G connection over Wi-Fi. Up to five different devices can be connected to the MiFi and access Verizon's fast 3G fast internet connectivity network. It's a small box that is portable enough to carry around just about anywhere with battery life rated at 4 hours. Just like their mobile broadband modem cards, the MiFi can be used by subscribing to their $40 per month plan that allows for 250MB data transfer and 10 cents per megabyte once the limit has been reached. Heavy users might want to go for the $60 per month plan that is to provide 5GB capacity and 5 cents per megabyte for overages. And if you prefer not to sign up for a monthly plan, you can choose to stick with the $15 daily charge for a period of 24 hours. The MiFi will be available starting May 17th for $99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate. This is just another solution for people out there looking for something compact that is easy to set up in pretty much any location.
