More of a question: some specs say 60 Mbps now with 100 Mbps later. Other say up to 100 Mbps. In the real world, is one better than another device? Are there any external ports to add an antenna for better range?
I plan to use as a backup at home and primary on the road when I travel/vacation.
According to Wikipedia, Freedompop partnered with Sprint in 2013
This is the only Hotspot that can handle both 3G and 4G LTE… on the others if no 4G then no go.
An average HD video ranges roughly 3GB per hour in size. So I have to question how much HD video anybody will be watching with this before hitting the data cap and getting throttled.
SuperNova delivers blazing fast speeds of up to 100Mbps on our enhanced 4G LTE network so you can stream HD videos from websites like Netflix without annoying pauses or breaks, to maximize your experience online.
$19.99/mo - 2GB of 4G LTE with nationwide 3G fallback
Hi Freedompop. Do you still have a data roll-over plan? If I wanted to get this for trips and emergencies, how much would it cost me a much to roll the free data over and how much data could I save up?
I need a hotspot, there is only 3g where I live, If I pay the $~4 will I get unlimited 3g? will it be throttled? Is there a cap on the 3g?
