This seems like a great idea - internet access with no contracts - pay as you go. Installation went well - no problems there. Unfortunately, this thing is SLOW. Incredibly slow. I checked on Virgin Mobile's Coverage Map. According to that, I'm in an area with the "best" coverage. I regularly get a full 4 "bars" of reception. I've used this on several laptops running XP & Windows 7 - Firefox and Chrome browsers. It doesn't matter! It just goes incredibly slow. I just timed it and it loaded 4000 bytes in one minute. Thats BYTES - not kilobytes, not megabytes. It essentially will not open a webpage (not even the default Virgin Mobile homepage) and will time-out. Its not always this bad, but it frequently will take a full minute to open a single webpage. My Verizon 3G phone has absolutely no problem accessing the web. I'm not sure what the deal is with this device - the network must be incredibly feeble. It would be great if it worked! But it doesn't in any acceptable way. Thats pretty much it.

It's Sunday evening and I've been surfing with this unit since Friday evening. It's working out very well for me. I'm using it in a mid size town in eastern WV as I visit people who aren't internetters. I'm getting speed tests randing from 150 - 400 Kb/s upload and download in EVD0 mode. This is enough for my Office Outlook, Office Communicator and internet surfing. There is a slower mode that the unit sometimes operates in called RXTT something something, and if it goes into that mode it's like downgrading from DSL to dial-up. I don't know how it selects the mode but so far it seems when I first connect it might be in the slower mode for a few minutes and them bump up to the faster EVD0 mode. It's doing what I need it to do, and I like the no-contract one-month-at-a-time $40 unlimited plan. Most months I won't even need this and it will be put away. It's nice to know I can just go on-line and sign up for a month anytime I need it. The installation and acount setup is all done through the USB unit itself, so you don't have to worry about getting it set up before leaving your existing connection network.

i purchased this product one week ago..so far i am 100% satisfied with the product..i guess if u have other wireless service this may be a step down in quality..however, i have only had dial-up and there is no comparision in speed..i cannot afford the "big companies services with their restricted plans"..this is such a great alternative and so affordable..i have only one bar but still have great service..i have been booted once and a couple of times it has frozen for a few moments but then proceeds with the downloads....i got booted several times weekly with the dial-up and download times were horrible..two thumbs up and five stars virgin mobile for providing blue collar, hard working folks with a product that we can afford and enjoy

While I wouldnt classify this "HighSpeed Internet" device in the same catagory as DSL or Cable Internet, it will definitely give someone who is in a Dial Up/ Satellite internet only area another viable option. The service at my dads house (out in the sticks) is almost full bars, the data rate is about 750k, the service at my mother-in-laws house is only 1 bar (I used my laptop to survey the whole house), the internet speed was still WAY faster than her dial up. I did have some issues trying to setup the internet service online and had to "phone a friend" to finish the setup process. The modem has performed quite well and has taken my father from a once a month email blast person to every night he gets on, also he was getting very frustrated at his computer TRYING to navigate on dialup. This has been the answer. Perfect solution, no contracts and reasonable priced plans from $10 on up...... I did add a USB extension cable so it didnt have to be plugged into the back of the machine and also could be positioned for best signal.

  • A. The Virgin Mobile Broadband to go can be used on several computers but not at the same time. If you want to use it with more than one computer at the same time you will have to purchase at Walmart the MiFi 2200 which can be used with up to 5 computers.

  • A. 1) To find out about connecting to multiple computers, Google "internet connection sharing" and how to enable it. That will allow one computer, hooked to the net, to act as a portal for the other computers. 2) 3g is relatively slow compared to a wired connection. If you have three people just checking text emails there probably won't be a problem. If all of you are trying to watch YouTube videos there's going to be a lot of stuttering.

  • A. It's only meant to work with one computer at a time. You can use a wireless router that uses a USB modem and create a wireless network. Cradelpoint Technologies CTR350 works with most any 3G wireless modem and can be found on eBay for $45 or so. I own 2 and they work great.
