Selectel Wireless Expands Broadband Lineup With New $20 and $35 Monthly Plans

Verizon MVNO Selectel Wireless has added a couple of additional mobile broadband plans. Selectel's new broadband lineup is:
  • 1 GB for $20
  • 3 GB for $35
  • 5 GB for $50
The $20 and $35 options are new. They aren't listed on the Selectel site yet but are available by calling Selectel or through Selectel dealers including Genius Wireless and Bat Mobile Wireless, both of which offer free MiFi activations. Selectel itself charges a $30 activation fee.

The plans currently work with Verizon branded 3G hotspots only. The Novatel MiFi 2200 seems to be the most widely available model. It's available for free from Selectel with purchase of the $50 plan and a $30 activation fee. Hotspots are also available inexpensively on eBay. Support for Verizon LTE hotspots is rumored to be coming to Selectel by the end of the year.

  1. Internet-go.com's $20/Gb is better because it does not expire; it has worse coverage though.

    3. Internet On The Go is Sprint 2G/3G only, no WiMAX.

  2. VZW 3G is slow. That's the only problem.

  3. Yes I agree. Verizon 3g in my city is very slow as well.

  4. Quiz of the Week:
    We are often overlooked, but offer great value to many customers, flexibility that they cannot find with our competitors. We offer a good variety of plans, low prices and very good coverage. MVNOs like us have to plug holes in competitors’ pricing, and we think we have done this. We are not copy-cats. We also think customers should be able to start prepaid service without an up-front charge, unlike some competitors. We can even give you a free, basic phone to get you started! Nobody likes surprises, so we do not charge extra taxes and fees unless required by law. And when your data runs out, YOU choose whether you want it to stop or you want more at extra charge. When you need help, we think you should be able to speak to someone who can solve your problem right away, not a rep who just looks for the right script to read. Finally, we believe that you should be able to use your own phone with our service, so we offer full BYOD on our network to all customers. PS: You will need a credit card to use our phone service, and we bill you automatically every month for your convenience.
    Who are we?

    1. PureTalk is correct. We have a winner of this quiz. -OP

    2. Woohoo!!! PureTalk is great for us with its family flex plan. We were looking at other prepaid mvnos that have some sort of family option, but PureTalk was the best for us and the simplest to understand.

      We looked at the other guessed answer, but, sorry, Consumer Cellular would have cost us TOO MUCH above our budget. And also Consumer Cellular has all those tv commercials saying its for AARP old people. We certainly are NOT that old yet!

    3. I compared Consumer to PureTalk for my wife and me. Consumer was $2 less per month including our 15% taxes, at $43 (w/5% discount). PureTalk Flex Family would cost us $45. We now get LTE and postpaid coverage, and we get to share 300mb; we're not limited to 150mb each. And we can share up to 600 minutes instead of 390.

    4. No AARP discount for us. Our family is too young for Consumer Cellular with that AARP 5% discount. PureTalk better for us. And didn't want our relatives to label us as having our phones and our kids' phones as being all old folks phones. We have some annoying relatives who would lord that over us. Sorry no Consumer Cellular AARP phone service for us.

      Maybe next week's question will be about Consumer Cellular and then you'll win.

    5. Haha. Well, I hope your annoying relatives don't learn that PureTalk is promoted with Snapfone senior phones, which come with their SIM.
      Don't the relatives tease you for not having LTE data?

  5. Consumer Cellular.

  7. I can't imagine better service. I called them once, and not only did I get through quickly on their service line, the tech person I talked to, when faced with a difficult question, quickly handed me over to someone high up in the company who was very forthcoming with information.
