MiFi 4510L, Verizon 4G LTE Hotspot, 5 GB Data for $50

MiFi 4510L, Verizon 4G LTE Hotspot, 5 GB data for $50 is available now.

The MiFi 4510L is an awesome device for fast mobile Internet
  • fast 4G speeds – 5 - 12 / 2 - 5 Mbps speeds (download/upload)
  • decent price for the device - $100 with a 2-year contract
  • 4G speeds in 4G coverage area, 3G speeds elsewhere
  • supports upto 5 WiFi devices concurrently

The big challenge, a super-high price for 4G data. Unlike the Verizon 4G phone which provides unlimited data for $30/month, the 4G LTE hotspot data is priced at $50 for 5GB and additional charges for over 5 GB use. At these rates, you’ll need to be very careful how much data you use with the hotspot and be checking your data use constantly to make sure you are within limits. If you are planning on watching a NetFlix movie using the hotspot, be extra careful, as you could end up spending $50 per movie with Verizon 4G.

If you can live with slower Internet speeds, then get Sprint 4G which provides unlimited 4G at a fixed price. Make sure to check the coverage area of the service.

The MiFi 4510L specs are available from Novatel.
