Good "Faster than Satellite with better responsiveness."
Bad "Data cap. Overage charges are ridiculously expensive."
Overall "If you are like me and don't have DSL/Cable/Fixed Wireless as an option, this will suffice."

(ratings match consensus)

I purchased a Samsung 4G LTE hotspot (but can only connect via 3G from my location.)

I have great signal strength (usually around an 81 in the web interface) and see download speeds approaching 1.7MB/s and upload speeds near 900KB/s.

Overall, it is a good service when there are no other options (besides satellite/dialup.) It is expensive, but I need near broadband internet speed and thus am willing to pay the $80 a month (10GB cap) plus overage ($10 per GB.)

My connection has been reliable (except for the entire day when the Verizon network went down this week.)

I'd recommend this service for business use, but it is not a replacement for "real" internet in that the cap is so low, you can eat your entire daily allowance in mere minutes...
