Pleasantly surprised
I actually tinkered with the idea of purchasing this product - The Internet on the go - and after three months of debating I went ahead and bought it. No regrets here. It was EXTREMELY easy to set up and activate online -less than 5 minutes. I charged it and used it today with my iPad. At first it was really slow - I couldn't even load the page. THEN I turned the wifi off on my iPad and turned it back on. From there it worked flawlessly. I checked the public internet I was on and tested the speed against the Internet on the go. Needless to say, Internet on the go was quick and works flawlessly. I didn't want to eat up the data so after surfing a few pages and sending a few emails, I turned it off. Tonight when I came home, I decided to connect my macbook air and see how quick the pages loaded. It loaded quickly - no problems whatsoever. I checked a few internet pages, checked my data balance and downloaded some email messages (I didn't download attachments though). I think it's extremely efficient and doesn't feel like 3G at all - felt quicker than that when the pages are loading. I would imagine if you're in an area that shows a gap kind of coverage (based on the coverage map), I would think it would be slower (no different than when you're in a concrete building with no windows and your iPhone has only one or two bars - same concept. But if you're looking for a great value - no expiration of data (which is extremely important to me as I don'y like the monthly contracts for this type of service) then this little gadget is for you. It's the size of a credit card and as thin as a pencil. I'm a tech-e kind of girl and although I had minimal expectations for this little INTERNET ON THE GO, I am extremely happy and pleasantly surprised. I think you will be too.

Support is Non-existent. Product is worthless.
Sat "on-hold" for about 2 hours while a periodic recorded message informed me I would soon be served. Never connected to a human. Email request for assistance was electronically acknowledged and never answered. I presently have a device that is worthless.

I love this thing! I have internet at home so I wanted to get a true pay as you go plan for wireless internet. Once in a while I want to sit in the lunch room at work or when I'm away from home and quickly surf the net. I didn't want to pay a flat fee each month for internet when I might use it once or twice a month or maybe not at all for a month or two. With this plan what I don't use just stays available for me to use later. With the $25 card you can have 3gb of internet use that expires in 30 days. Or the never ending plan that I use 1.5gb (1.5gb is about 1532mb) When I tested my usage I worked on line reading and sending e-mails and managing my fantasy sports teams. In an hour I used less than 20mb (I know the usage is more if you listen to music or watch videos but I can do that from home) I highly recommend this. If you don't know what a hotspot is... this is about the size of a cell phone, it connects to the internet using a dedicated wireless line and then broadcasts the signal for your wireless devise.

Excellent/inexpensive way to obtain mobile data

I use Internet on the Go, along, with an iPad mini and the Talkatone App from google to create a "virtual" 7.9 inch iPhone. This is much cheaper than an iPhone contract with ATT, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile. The voice quality is excellent and I have internet access on a "large" -7.9 screen. It works great and costs about 75% less than a 2 year carrier phone contract. What's not to like?

Good product and easy to set up.

Read a lot of reviews before making purchase. Decided to purchase this item due to the price, $25 credit towards usage after purchase and the inexpensive plans with no contracts. Was super easy to set up and get connected. Purchased the $10 plan for the first month to determine what my usage level will be. Still in my first month so still in the testing stage. The range is decent. Says it will connect up to 33 ft away. I have not been more than 20 ft away which produced a medium-low signal. I don't see why I would have the device more than a few inches away from my laptop and tablet so range is not an issue. The connection speed is definitely NOT comparable to wireless high speed internet so you will be disappointed if that is what you are looking for. I'm happy with the product and the pay as you go (with no contract) plans. I've been wanting to get connected "on the go" for years but I was not willing to pay the ridiculous monthly rates. These plans are reasonably priced which makes it more affordable for everyone.

Good, cheap internet access.

This works exactly like it's supposed to and overall, I am very happy with the product. I needed a cheap option for some very light internet access. It's nice to be able to buy 3 gigs worth of data and know that I can spend a year or two working through it without having the data expire. There are a couple of things that kept it from getting a 5 star rating. When I turn the device off with the power button, it comes back on after the first try. I have to press the power button again to get it to turn off for good. The device is usable right out of the package. However, if you go to the administration menu, there is a lot of reconfiguration you can do, like changing the administrator password, the SSID, and the encryption key. But none of it is described in the included documentation. Some of it is at the manufacturer's website, but some of it you just have to research on the web to figure out what it does.

Very pleased with this. We live in Ontario and bought it for a trip to Florida. Worked well in Florida and I was able to use it all the way from Florida through Georgia, SC, NC, Virginia, WV, PA and NY with very few dropped connections. Browsing speed was good - equivalent to the 3G speed I am used to. I bought a $10 card to go with it and it lasted for the 21 hour trip (yes I was browsing constantly) as well as an additional 3 days (casual use) which we were extremely impressed with. This is a great product for anyone who doesn't want to get gouged by Canadian roaming fees while traveling in the US. We came home to no additional fees on our reg cell phones. Also by using the mifi with FB Messenger and iPhone to iPhone free texting we were able to send and receive messages instantly for the whole trip. The only downside is the battery life and lack of car charger. Battery life was very limited - about 4 hrs when in use.

Not the fastest around but it does the job

I knew going in that the claimed speeds were theoretical under optimal conditions with downloading text only. You absolutely will NOT get the speeds loading graphics or streaming media as you will text. If you want a good browser for this use, I'd suggest Opera. IE and the others are way too hoggish as far as bandwidth and slow speeds go (in this application). I bought this device to use as a hot spot to check email and to post geocaching and munzee finds, and to check for new hides and deployments. I do not plan to stream music or videos or swap pictures. For me, it's on, do my business and get off. All of this for when I travel and don't feel like stopping at a common fast food joint for free WiFi, or when I'm out in the middle of noman's land. Setup was a snap, although it took a few minutes for everything to sync up and for my airtime card to register. But it works, plain and simple. It's about twice as fast as the old 144 dial up, maybe a bit faster, from what I have seen. Cable and DSL it isn't, so do keep that in mind. It wasn't designed nor intended for that. So if you're looking for blistering speeds, this isn't for you. I like the idea of a pay as you go internet, like my Tracfone cellphone. Read all the screens and options carefully - For $10, you get 1GB of data that's good for 30 days. Use it or lose it. For that same $10, you can select the option of 500MB and it'll never expire, that is if you log on atleast once a year. I chose the latter. I would have given this an excellent rating all the way, but I've not tried it out everywhere. So my four stars are based on the limited use I've experienced. So far, I'm quite pleased.

hotspot works good but customerservice is horrible

the hotspot seems to work good, I have limited experience so far. customer signup website very flakey wasted hours of my time. customer (dis)service is horrible on hold for 17 minutes average with extremely loud, distorted saxaphone music. then a (non) tech with very little knowledge did not understand the question and HUNG UP ON ME instead of getting someone knowledgable to help me. Once noone ever answered the phone after 17 painful minutes waiting for help. Once I got some help from a descent customer service person after 5 minutes on hold. For simple browsing & email you may be ok. for port forwarding you had better be a self guided expert because some customer service reps are not competent or give a darn about customers. confusing advertising. hotspot transmits while charging. you cannot disable the transmitting while charging. the hotspot must be manually powered down after charging complete. disconecting the power does not power down the hotspot it is designed for battery power. I mostly like the device but hate the miscellaneous problems. the best thing is the ability to buy data coverage that never expires until used up instead of having data expire every 30 days even if you did not use it up. But you pay twice as much for unexpirable data as for expirable data. Dont expect a competent or caring company to help you.

Extremely slow

Although it will eventually download web pages, don't buy this thinking that the experience will be pleasant. The inexpensive service price comes with a performance penalty. All but the most basic of web pages timeout and you can forget about watching a video. I use it sparingly, and only when I'm desperate for web e-mail or occasional viewing of a web page or two.

This item sucked pretty bad.

We contacted customer service to find out why our internet signal was so slow and intermittent. Their reply was 'there's probably a lot of people accessing the service right now, so you'll just have to wait and try back later.' Really? Who wants this kind of internet? C Ya...it went back to Walmart the same day.

1. No. No data access comes with the device. Only a cloth cover, battery & charger, and instructions. You must buy the data access to Internet on the Go separately, and use the PIN number, (sent by email if purchased online), to load the amount of data you will then have available.
by azkid53
2. It comes with a $25 card but is added to your account after you purchase your first prepaid card. The bonus $25 waits in your account until your next refill. All this is done online which makes it very convenient.
by Shadow08
3. You need to buy a refill card when you purchase it then you get a 25 bonus 1 month refill that kicks in once you use your first refill.
by HappyCustomer38
4. It does not come with time on it, but when you put a refill on it the first time, they give you $25 worth of refill free - which applies after the data you buy is used up.
by Terrell1
5. The one I just bought came with a $25 bonus when you installed the first $25 card. The description of the devise said it was included. Otherwise, I don't think so, you need to buy a card.
by PeaMan
6. Yes it comes with 3GB on the Go Bigger plan but expires in 30 days. But the Go Big plan does not.

1. Internet on the Go wireless network services are provided on the Nationwide Sprint Network.
by FullDisclosureRequired
2. I don't think their zip code look up thing is working. It says it won't work where I am, yet my Sprint MiFi works fine. If it's on the Sprint network, and Sprint is available where you are, it seems like it should work...shouldn't it?

1. You can buy more GBs for your account online, you have the option of limited data that doesn't expire (my fave) or 30 days unlimited. You can also setup your account so it recharges automatically!
by Shadow08
2. You buy more on the Walmart site. I found the stores do not sell these devices or the refills. Just the web site. When you buy a refill, Walmart will send you a code, which you then enter on the "Internet on the Go" site, and they add more data.
by Terrell1
3. You purchase a new card and then go to the web site. The web site will tell you the remaining mb you have. Enter the pin, and chose a plan. (30 day or never ending)
by PeaMan
4. You log onto your account and refill used a credit or debit card. Or go into a Walmart and buy a refill card.
by timgtech
5. Thank you very much for all the replies. It seems I didn't quite write my question clear enough. What I meant was how to get into the internet if I was on vacation and forgot to buy another 30 day pass or used up all my GB's. Well, I called "Internet on the Go" and was lucky that a live person answered the phone and understood my question. He said, the system would log into "Internet on the Go" site and would say my internet connection is not available due to "beyond the 30 days" or "GB limits have been reached" and the website would offered all the choices everyone wrote to me to add more GB's. Again, thank you all. I have been using "Internet on the Go" since November 2012 and it has performed excellent for all my tasks. I have been buying backup refills cards so I don't lose connection in the middle of the night.
