    Angry VM Prepaid Broadband to go....not worth $50

    ever since VM put a cap on their $50 unlimited prepaid broadband plan....I realize its NOT worth.....SLOW SPEEDS....1X in most of las vegas which is a major metro area...even near UNLV and the strip.

    I blame sprint for this crappy network. I hear AT&T has a better prepaid broadband plan any reviews??? thanks.

    I had VM's MIFI for two months, till I decided the service was just unacceptable. 2-3 times a week, I had to re-set the device to connect, VERY slow speeds, sold it on Ebay, and went back to AT&T DSL. I liked the idea of taking the MIFI on trips, but DSL is really reliable, and that's more important to me. I was on VM's older $40 unlimited plan at the time, and if it would have performed properly, I would have kept it.

    Tell me about it... I have 5 VM MiFi's for work (loaners for dorms and conferences). Damned things randomly lock up or get stuck in redirect loops to the "Get in here!" account page all the time. Speed is tolerable when they work, if they work.

    The $40 unlimited plan is only available to those who had it before they raised the price. If you switch from the grandfatered $40 plan to another plan, you cannot get the $40 plan back.
