Yes, when you buy the $55/month plan you get 5GB of data at 3G speeds. If you reach your 5GB allotment before the end of the month simply buy another plan to get back on the internet.

Question
Is MiFi 2200 capable of using a 4G connection?
I saw that the more priced data plans have a 4G unlimited option. It says that a 4G device is required to access 4G data. Is the 2200 considered a 4G device or will it just only use 3G?

The MiFi 2200 is only 3G. The Overdrive Pro and the U600 can do both 3G and 4G WiMAX.

The MiFi 2200 and the other Broadband2Go devices do not have any human interfaces like keyboards, mice or displays. They cannot be used as a desktop or laptop computer. The MiFi and the other Broadband2Go devices use the Sprint data network to provide an internet connection for desktops, laptops and other devices.

You may want to compare data speeds between your current DSL or other wired internet connection to the Broadband2Go speeds.

   Data speeds of Virgin Mobile’s Broadband2Go 3G/4G devices

   Operating on the Sprint 4G (WiMAX) Network, the Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go Overdrive ProTM 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot and the U600 3G/4G USB Sticks
   average speeds ranging between 3 – 6 mbps as compared to 600 kbps – 1.4 mbps on the 3G Nationwide Sprint Network – that’s up to 10 times faster!*
   The Sprint 4G Network reaches over 70 markets in the US.

   *Based on download speed comparison of Sprint 3G avg. speeds (600 kbps – 1.4 mbps) vs. Sprint 4G avg. speeds (3 – 6 mbps). Actual speeds may
   vary based upon plan or other factors. These Virgin Mobile’s Broadband2Go devices operate on the Sprint 4G WiMAX Network.
   http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5677/kw/data%20speed

You are also limited to 2GB or 5GB of data at 3G speeds on one plan for a month with Broadband2Go. Your current DSL or other wired internet connection probably has a much higher limit, if any.

When internet access for mobile devices is needed and a hotspot is not available then the MiFi and the other Broadband2Go devices and plans are your best bet.

There are 3 Broadband2Go plans: $35 per month, $55 per month, and $5 per day. All 3 plans will provide unlimited data for 1 month or 1 day when you have a 4G Broadband2Go device operating in 4G mode. Data access will continue after you receive 10GB of data but 4G speeds will be reduced to about 2Mbps.

When you have a 3G device OR your 4G device is operating at 3G speed then:
• You'll get 2GB of data at 3G speeds on the $35/month plan or 5GB of data at 3G speeds on the $55/month plan during your month.
• You'll get 200MB of data at 3G speeds on the $5/day plan during your day.

Click on the MAP on the top line of this webpage to view data coverage in your area. Be sure to select your coverage interest such as 4G Coverage or Data Coverage(3G).

Question
Can I replace my current Virgin USB Mobile device with this one and still use the same Data Plan?
I have purchased the Virgin 600 USB Stick and now want to purchase the MIFI 2200 so I can use multiple wi-fi devices. Can I still use my current and existing Virgin Data Plan, or do I have to wait until the plan expires and then purchase a new one?

You're right, unlimited 4G isn't any use unless you have one of the 4G devices. Check your coverage. If you're covered, go get an Overdrive or U600.

There are no contracts at Virgin Mobile USA. Buy a MiFi 2200 and buy either the $35 or $55 plan for a month of data. Buy more plans when ever you need a mobile hotspot on the go.
