Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200 mobile hotspot outpaces competition

The Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200 mobile hotspot is turning up the heat in the wireless internet race. This is the device that keeps executives from other internet companies awake at night. The MiFi 2200 mobile hotspot runs up to 5 portable internet devices and fits neatly in the palm of your hand. 


Combine this with a $40 per month unlimited internet plan and you very well may say goodbye to your land based DSL or cable modem. (Note: Prices can and do change without notice. Check the Virginmobileusa.com website for the latest plans.)


Virgin Mobile has long been a leader in the prepaid wireless phone market. They offer inexpensive cell phones and wireless plans without a contract. With Virgin Mobile you only have to buy the minutes you need, not the whole cell phone tower. I used them for years and was pleased with their service. It wasn't until Straight Talk came out that I changed.


The unlimited Broadband2Go prepaid wireless internet works the same way. You buy the Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200 unit online or from a retail store. The unit is $149 plus tax. You will also need a $40 Broadband2Go unlimited wireless top-up card for your first month of service.


When you get home all you have to do is follow the instructions in the package for setting up your MiFi. It's a simple process. The paperwork tells you all the steps you need. If you get stuck the Virgin Mobile tech team is just a phone call away. In just a few minutes you can be surfing away. 


With the Virgin Mobile Unlimited Broadband2Go prepaid wireless internet device you can run up to 5 internet devices at the same time. This means that you can surf the internet, your son can play those online internet games that he enjoys while your husband uses his PDA. And, you can run 2 other mobile devices at the same time. 


If you don't need the Virgin Mobile unlimited internet service next month you don't have to pay anything. Just let the month expire and buy a new top-up card the next time you need internet access. There are no contracts and no strings. 

The MiFi 2200 unit itself is about the same size as a deck of playing cards. It come with a cable and (next...)
