I hope this isn't a typo (update - it is a typo, details at the end of the post) but Verizon's site is showing even better prices than previously announced for its new prepaid 4G LTE Mobile Broadband Plans. The rates are as follows:
|Prepaid Mobile Broadband*|
|Monthly Access Fee||$20||$30||$50||$80|
|Monthly Data Allowance||1 GB||2 GB||5 GB||10 GB|
|*No activation or reconnection fees, and no overage charges.|
To see these rates. go to the Verizon Prepaid homepage, click "Mobile Hotspots / Verizon Jetpacks", enter a zipcode, click "Verizon Jetpack™ 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi® 4510L Prepaid" click "View Plan Information".
If these prices are for real Verizon has gone from the most expensive to the least expensive of all US mobile broadband providers. In addition, Verizon is the only US carrier to offer prepaid LTE and is generally considered to have the best overall coverage and the best LTE coverage of any operator.
The only downside to these new rates is that it looks like you have to buy a new $129.99 Wireless Hotspot to get them. But that's reasonable LTE hotspot and a small price to pay for blazing fast speeds, no contract and low recurring monthly costs.
Update: Unfortunately, the rates shown above are a typo on Verizon's part. The Verizon site has changed (image below) to show the higher rates quoted in the original press release.
