    I've had this for 10 days. I've used it every day. I use with an iPod touch and on a macBook laptop. I've tested this on speedtest.net about 20 times. The download speed is consistently around 300-500 kpbs which is about 6-10 times faster than "old school" dial up. This 3G runs on Sprint and I've compared to my wifes 3G iPhone (AT&T) and our speeds are consistently similar. The speed on this miFi is exactly as expected for a 3G network. It's slow, but you wouldn't expect 3G to be especially fast. (note: I have gotten speeds in the 500-1,000 kbps range, but these are not the "norm".) The "ping" time is always about 200 ms on my macBook and 400 ms on my iPod touch. This will not work well for downloading video. This will not really work well for downloading anything. This will not be your "primary" internet connection. You should buy this if you want to have an internet connection "on the road". I use this every day on my 25 minute bus ride to and from work. I use it for applications that don't require a lot of bandwidth. This miFi is totally awesome for what it is. It's not cheap, but not too expensive either. This thing combined with a $200 iPod touch is "for all practical purposes" an iPhone without the ability to talk. There's a free app that gives you unlimited text messaging on an iPod touch. One minor problem. It gets fairly warm/hot. I'm not sure if I'd want to run it in my pocket. I leave it sitting out when I'm using it. I don't think it's good for electronics to get hot, but that's just a guess. Last random comment. This thing is tiny, it's less than 1/2 the size of my wife's iPhone, so this combined with my iPod touch is still "overall" the same size as an iPhone.

    Great product.. I bought this for my iPad and for times when I am away from my primary home-based Wi-Fi network. The price is right and Virgin Mobile's prepaid broadband plans don't break the bank. The only drawback is the fact that Virgin relies on Sprint's data network, which can be spotty in some locations compared to AT&T or Verizon. That being said, if you just need to do some light web surfing or social networking, this product will serve you in good stead.. I don't know if I would recommend it for streaming, though.

    I have read a lot of negative reviews about this product and felt obligated to share my experience. It does not have cable or dsl type speed, but for what it is it works really well. I can't get either of the above mentioned internet services and my satellite internet experience was not a positive one. I regularly get download speeds over 1.0 Mbs and upload speeds of 300 to 500kbps. Not exactly lightening fast but with low ping times compared to satellite, it meets my needs.

    The Virgin MiFi 2200 is small and light weight. It charges with any mini USB cord. It also charges using the included AC adapter. WiFi and internet work when plugged in and charging. Battery lasts about 4.5 hours. Works fine for me. I get about 1MBps downloads. Great for on the road. I often take long bus trips and this has good coverage throughout Texas. I often go to Dallas and Houston from San Antonio.

    I bought the Broadband2Go device for a friend who lives too far out of town to get cable, and doesn't have a land line to get DSL. It works very well for her purposes. She doesn't stress the connection, using mostly for email and Skype. I started her off with the WalMart special data package ($20), and she's already renewed that (within a week), and plans to go with the unlimited plan for next time. It's great that you can change when you want to, with no penalty. I also tried the device with two computers at once, and it worked well that way, too.

    • A. Yes, but you will not see the same speed as your home broadband connection even with a strong signal. My advice would be to buy one, get the cheap 10 buck plan and take it home and see what type of signal strength that you get. You can always return it to walmart if you are not happy with it.

    • A. Sure if you don't mind a LOT slower speeds. It will be significantly slower than your cable/dsl modem. If you do nothing but read txt emails and basic surfing, it 'may' work, but I would personally not use it as my primary internet connection. Again, if your a very light user.. sure.. if not, then no.

    • A. You should be able to use any USB charger with a mini USB cable. I used my cable from my Jawbone Icon bluetooth headset to charge the MiFi 2200 and it works fine. I'm not sure the WiFi and internet will work if charging thru USB. Alternatively, you could buy a power inverter and use the AC adapter that comes with the MiFi.

    • A. I have found that a small inverter is the most economical way to go. My favorite is a 90 watt that plugs into the cigarette lighter or power outlet and it will power most any 110v charger up to a laptop in most cases. They usually cost about the same as the car adapter for most products and you only buy one for all devices so can save a bundle.
