The second year it is $164 for just the service.  They do have another service now that includes 3G and the ability to use multiple towers but it works out to $25 a month. The LTE only is fast enough for me and the 3G is pretty slow considering I have other devices.


So sprint LTE or not worth it via them. Understood. Speculate but not a lot of sprint customers. So easy to get non competing cell tower connection.

There are no low income requirements and it's not on the shady side like the Verizon 3G. A pretty good deal for unlimited IF you have Sprint coverage.

Hmm so is this like the one you get from CalyxInstitute.com where they also give you a unlimited Sprint 4G LTE because non-profits get it cheap, and also is it true unlimited no throttling?

Ah ok seems pretty much same as Calyx Institute hotspot, not sure if that group got it for being non-profit as well or not but still same price of $400 a year for service. The Cheaper is 4g only so if you go out into the fringe a little you lose connection.

I hadn't noticed you replied here before the 3G thread.

I got the LTE only because I have other devices that get Sprint 3G and were I in a area that that was my only connection, it would be for email and light internet, no streaming. Sprint 3G is the slowest of the lower bands but it does give them a larger footprint than people assume. I also get carrier aggregation and have seen a device connect to more than one band but out here in the boonies you are lucky to get one band on a tower. The chance that C.A. will improve things is pretty slim. The chance the $400 hotspot would give me a better experience is slim.

I do enjoy the Franklin 850 even on just LTE. Also Sprints 3G gives them a better footprint than T-mobile has but AT&T and Verizon blow it away. The $400 version would be better as my only device out here in the boonies but in town it wouldn't be needed.

Jimindenver -- if I got this and used it for heavy streaming in town with good sprint. Would it work well enough? I have att hard wired internet for $60 a month. Use about 100gb with Netflix and YouTube typical.

With a good signal to a uncongested tower it would work great. It can easily see speeds ion the 30s and I was seeing over 27 Mbps down out in the middle of no where. The great thing is it is truly unlimited and not subject to de-prioritizing or throttling like my Mobley can see over 22 gigs. It has no SD restriction like my T-Mobile binge on service either.

Ordered the three month plan with the hotspot device. If it does not work for me, or my son ( two different areas of the city) then will send it back for refund. The membership price is now $35 and not even close to original a year ago.

Received the sprint hotspot from 4GCommunity. So far so good. Have a seven day test and mailman dropped it off in box on Friday. First day I could fire it up was today. Got 3mbps download so can live with that for video streaming at home. Sprint seems to be effective. Will continue test all week.

Reading documentation it says the device needs to have the battery removed after it is charged up. At least for this kind of hotspot. So charging the battery up first then removing the battery.

I have the Franklin 850 and have never removed the battery.

Right now my 4Gcommunity is the fastest of all my devices but I think it is only because it is roaming on Verizon LTE making it faster than the Verizon 3G. The 850 has a big R on it and my other sprint devices that do not roam have no signal at all.
