    Unlimited Sprint LTE $120 a year (plus $55 for hotspot) for low-income

    Following on the (now completing) WiMax shutdown and lawsuit, low-income users and certain non-profits will shortly be able to get unlimited LTE from Sprint for as little as $120 a year plus the $55 cost of a Fuse hotspot:

    It is a limited time offer.

    Would it not be available anywhere within the Sprint coverage area?

    I see that being ANOTHER KARMA . . . . . As people start using gobs and gobs of data, they'll change something about it . . . . . .

    and I would NEVER pay up front for any kind of internet service. Once they got your money, if they change something in the terms of service, they got your MONEY, and got ya by the balls so to speak! LOL

    The footnote says 23GB before deprioritizing. Also, new customers apparently have to buy a refurb PC setup for $199 (including the hotspot and 3-months sub), not just the hotspot itself. Old Clear customers can skip the PC. And of course, you need to be eligible, as it's a subsidized program.

    I didn't look them up, but my impression is that the outfit looks to be a non-profit that has been doing this a while.

    This would be a good deal for those that qualify, but can't get wired Internet. 23GB/month is very doable for light Internet use (ie staying away from video/music).

    I believe this is the settlement of the lawsuit so it will likely be embodied in the final court order and cannot be changed.

    This is what Mobile Beacon and Mobile Citizen asked for in their lawsuit - $10 a month unlimited (subject to deprioritization where needed after 23 GB in overloaded areas)..

    The deprioritization after 23 GB only applies where needed because of the load. There is no cap or throttling otherwise. It does not have any effect when the network is lightly loaded.

    I have a friend who is on social security disability, how easy is it to just get the hotspot?
    Mourning the loss of my Nextel i325 but still using a bag phone.

    I received the hotspot today and will check it out a few days and offer a review. Do you have any specific questions?
