MiFi is WiFi with 3G from Verizon
If you are like me and always need to be mobile and online, the Mi-Fi is for you. I don’t know why universal mobile wireless Internet is taking so long.
Now you are not limited by Hot Spots or just local coffee shops. You can take it with you while driving your car. Although we don’t recommend you using your laptop surfing while driving in traffic. You don’t want to be that guy.
The MiFi 2200 is from Verizon Wireless and supports 802.11b/g and EV-DO Rev standards. The router supports up to five various WiFi devices at the same time. The battery life has a standby time of 40 hours and up to four hours of continuous use.
Your data plans includes $40 monthly subscription for 250 MB and 10 cents per MB overages. Does anyone really track their network usage? A more reasonable deal is the $60 for 5GB and 5 cents for 1MB overages. The DayPass which does not limit your data goes for $15 and lasts up to 24 hours.
MiFI 2200 will be available May 17th and will run $100 after a $50 rebate.
I think I will be waiting for Mi Cheap Fi.
