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.

Question
If the MiFi device is plugged into the wall charger, will wireless internet service still be available?
It would be frustrating if after four hours of use, any continued internet service would have to wait until the battery was recharged again. Basically, is it possible to use the device as a home router, available all the time?
