We ran across these guys on the Datastorm Yahoo Group where this link was provided that gives various data plans for $69.99/month.
Some of the plans are for 10GB, 10GB of 4G and 10GB for 3G, 20 GB and for unlimited, but will raise a red flag after you use 50GB in a month. Also, no contracts… We also wonder if they will cut back unlimited data usage to you like Verizon and the other carriers are doing?
Does anyone have any opinions on these plans?
I also wonder, if these plans are only used for laptop Internet. Us “Old Crows” are not too tech savy. We need a younger person’s interpretations of all of this gobbley-goop.
Reading on the Datastorm Yahoo site, they say this company is a bulk reseller of Verizon and that when you check your billing, you go to the Verizon site.
We’re paying Real Time Communications (Hughes) $80/month for 425MB download in a 24 hr period, but unlimited downloads during 2 – 5 AM. Uploads, no limits. The downloads and uploads are slower than DSL but faster than dail up and also depends on weather and the number of users on that satellite at the same time. Only plus for our MotoSat system is that it goes to the satellite and not through cell towers, whereas these other guys go through cell towers. Probably works pretty good until you’re out of cell tower range.

A while back I wrote an article called ‘Part Time Mobile Internet Connections‘ I researched Millenicom and thought it sounded like a great deal! But, I have no personal experience. At the time, one drawback was that Millenicom offered only 3G service, not 4G.
In addition to the DatastormUsers, check out RV.net’s Technology corner forum. Lots of experienced cellular users there. Just search for Millenicom.
