Traveling Gal - Virgin Mobile Prepaid Broadband Review
•Which service provider(s) have you tried? - Virgin Mobile
•What was the coverage like? - pathetic even with a strong signal, the page load time/ speed can be as slow as dial up. I have used this is SC, IL, KS, and OH. The only state that actually worked pretty well was KS but that is Sprint's home territory.
If you can't get Sprint voice service, then the USB won't work either. If you get good Sprint service, then it all depends on how much cell traffic is on the tower - Friday afternoons and weekends are really bad.
•How did you find the speed? Was it fast enough? - NO!!!!! and calling customer service doesn't help. They never have any solutions other than to just "wait" and be "patient."
•How was the quality/features of the modem? (i.e. Was it reliable? Did you have a PC Card or a USB modem?)- USB Modem. Could take several minutes for the computer to recognize the device, and everytime you need to log onto internet. No problems with activation.
•Would you recommend the service to a friend? - Heck NO! I'm not sure I would put my worst enemy through this awful experience.
