    4GCommunity.org has quick CS response via email - No BYOD

    I inquired via their website if BYOD was allowed. They responded within the hour via email to let me know that BYOD is NOT allowed. You must purchase one of their mifi devices, which are brand new and come with a one-year warranty.

    Free but limited data from Freedompop has met my needs since August 2013 (swapping from one device to another every week), but the lure of cheap unlimited data might just pull me in.

    Just don't use a sprint branded device. The sim can be swapped into anything that isn't sprint branded. I'm using a mc7455 modem and get over 50mbps

    Can you explain? Is this a 4GC SIM? Are you Basic or Premium? Or are you talking about FreedomPop?

    I bought the cheapest 4gcommunity plan and device they had which was the Franklin r850. The Franklin device didn't have antenna ports or carrier aggregation. I pulled the sim card out and put it in a usb to wwan pci-e adapter and put a mc7455 module modem in it and have 2 antennas on my roof that attach to it. I use a router flashed with open source firmware to run the mc7455 modem.

    The Franklin was only cat 4 and the mc7455 is cat 6 capable of speeds over 100mbps

    You can use any sprint sim you want. They all work. Freedom pop, sprint phone, whatever.

    @Ih8Greg are you getting "speeds over 100mbps"?

    Oh & is it still a Wifi hotspot?


    Edit: The Sierra Wireless MC7455 module modem is expensive ~$150.

    Or get the em7455. Same thing and can be found for $50- $80. Just a different adapter. I have seen speeds over 100mbps with it. Not sure what you mean by "is it still a hotspot" it is a direct ip modem meaning you hook it to a router to make it a "hotspot". Its not very portable if that's what you are asking. This is mainly for home use. If i want to take a hotspot with me I just put the sim in the Franklin r850 and leave.

    Are you getting 100mbps with G4C service?

    Is this or could it be made to be a portable hotspot with a battery & without a router?

    Thanks

    Yes I have gotten 100mbps with 4gcommunity. It all depends on your location and if it has lte plus or not. No you can't use a battery with the setup i use.

    Wow. Thanks. I'm being greedy & haven't gotten the 850 yet. Do you know of a hotspot that'll unleash these higher speeds?

    I'm a bit confused.

    Are the ZTE Pocket WiFi Mobile & Franklin 850 the only Sprint branded hotspots that will work with the 4GC SIM?

    So in this setup does the router gets its IP info from the USB connection provided from that amazon device?

    Can you recommend an adapter module for the em7455?
