You’ve already purchased a 3G/4G USB modem, and it works great. Just like your mobile carrier said it would, it gets your laptop online without a hitch. But let’s be honest, it’s 2012. You don’t have to be a professional nerd to have multiple Internet ready devices like smartphones, media players, gaming systems, and e-readers, floating around you at all times. The problem is, that USB modem you have under contract fits into your laptop, but not into your other devices without a USB drive.
Mobile carriers realized there was a problem, and now we have all been graced with the technology of the Mi-Fi. Our team went straight to the source – three different mobile carries – to learn more about this new technology, and how we could help you get all of your devices online the easiest, and the cheapest way possible.
Great! This friendly mobile carrier representative told a member of our team exactly what the differences between the two products are, and even let us know they were the same price. The problem is, you already purchased a USB modem and are in the middle of your 2-year contract. Our team visited another mobile carrier and searched for answers about their upgrade policy.
Hmph. Have YOU ever tried to upgrade a device early? Let’s just say when a mobile carrier says “you will have to pay full price,” they mean it. We figured there still had to be a way, aside from upgrading early, to get all of your devices online through the 3G/4G USB modem you already own. We went to a third mobile carrier to ask them if there was another way, besides breaking a contract, to get multiple devices online with a USB modem.
After speaking to these three very different, but very nice, mobile carrier representatives, we came to a conclusion. If you are already the owner of a USB modem under a contractual agreement with a mobile carrier, you have two options:
1 – Use your USB modem to get your laptop online. But your other devices? Stuck outta luck.
2 – Break your contractual agreement and upgrade from your USB modem to the MiFi. You’ll get up to 5 devices online… after paying an exorbitant amount of money.
