I originally got this because I travel a lot and I wanted a connection I could reliably use anywhere I happened to be.
It works, but they're 4G advertising is a flat out lie. I have the newest datastick they offer (rocket 3.0) and I have used it all over the country. Big cities and rural, and everywhere in-between.
I usually get appx 2-5m down and about 500k up. The best I ever got was 15m down and appx 3m up. While these speeds do work and do provide browsing capability, streaming is usually very choppy at best and online gameplay is impossible due to their extreme routing problems. They refuse to fix their routing despite multiple complaints. No reason my pings should be average 600-700 ms! Satellite has less latency!
That all said, if you want mobile bb and you want usability without contract or high service charges, it does work. Barely....
uhh... For mobile your speeds are certainly reasonable and your comparison of latency to satellite is absolutely incorrect.
