Broadbandblue

Has anyone heard of broadbandblue? I'm in desperate need of high speed Internet in a rural area and the unlimited data sounds great. Will this work well enough to stream movies to my smart tv?

Their coverage map for unlimited is exactly the same as Sprint's.
So they are a re-seller of Sprint 3G service. Check »coverage.sprint.com/IMPACT.jsp?E···coverage to see if you can get it.

Up to 2Mbps isn't very promising for streaming movies. I would be truly shocked if it where truly unlimited too.

ALWAYS a catch!!!!!

Are there any hidden charges or fees?
None. You have your initial provisioning and activation fee of $249.00 that also covers your 1 year warranty. For your service you are billed $119.00 at the beginning of each contract month for a period of one year. After one year, the service agreement is month-to-month.

Of this has the same coverage as Sprint there is a more cost effective reseller, Netzero. Their hotspot device is about $100 includes a year of service. Unlimited.

Yes there is. Their so called Unlimited is in reality limited to 60Gb, after which your data speed is slowed down. I only learned this as I was grilling the sales rep, right before I was about to buy into it.

Once I learned that "unlimited" wasn't really unlimited, I promptly retracted my offer.

In that they only use the WiMax network, which is really limited to a small number of cities. If you want 4G LTE, go elsewhere!
