Sorry, no. Broadband2Go works strictly within the USA.

Broadband2Go devices use the Sprint Nationwide Network which only extends throughout the US, Hawaii, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. The VMUSA BB2G devices do not roam across other networks either. For these reasons Broadband2Go devices cannot provide web access when located outside the USA. There is no option to make Broadband2Go work outside the USA.
