Selectel Wireless Launches Mobile Broadband Service

Verizon MVNO Selectel Wireless is now offering prepaid mobile broadband service. It's limited to Verizon 3G devices currently. There's a single plan that provides 5GB of data for $60/month.

Mobile broadband service is not listed on the Selectel Website, you have to call. It is currently available from at least one Selectel Online dealer, Bat Mobile Wireless, which is offering free activations.

Neither Bat Mobile or Selectel are selling devices at this time but there are plenty of Verizon hotspots available inexpensively on eBay. Just be sure you get a 2G/3G only (not 4G LTE) device, as Selectel can't active LTE devices. The Novatel MiFi 2200 (image) seems to be the most widely available model. Instructions for setting up the MiFi 2200 on Selectel are on the Bat Mobile Wireless site.

    1. That's a pretty steep startup cost. Can you stop and restart service without paying the activation fee? Many mobile broadband users only need to use it when traveling.

  3. This is what a rep said about Millenicom's activation fee:
    You can cancel and reactivate you device as you please with no termination fees. There is a 19.99 activation charge when you reactivate your device. On our Hotspot plan you can cancel your account for up to three months out of a 12 month period without a reactivation fee.

    Definitely a great plan for someone that travels a lot.

    1. What is the network footprint for Millenicom is it Att. sprint, t-mobile, or Verizon ?

    2. Millenicom uses the Verizon network.

  4. For lower usage, Straight Talk, which I believe is also on Verizon, has reasonable rates.
