Whenever new technology debuts, customers understandably become concerned about buying products that are going to be outdated or getting stuck in a service contract when something better is on the way. Now that Sprint's 4G internet service is becoming available to users in more and more cities and more dual-mode 3G/4G devices are hitting the market, folks who were considering signing up for 3G mobile broadband service now have another option to contemplate. Luckily, Sprint has put together a new mobile broadband plan that gives you access to both their 3G and 4G networks at the SAME price as their 3G plan, just $59.99/month! You get the same 5GB of 3G service plus unlimited 4G access - Sprint is essentially giving away their 4G service at no additional charge!
At that price, selecting a 3G/4G device and signing up for 3G/4G service instead of 3G-only service is a no-brainer, even if 4G isn't yet available anywhere you plan to use mobile broadband - as Sprint continues to expand their 4G network in the coming years, you'll be prepared with the appropriate equipment. In order to sign up for Sprint's 3G/4G service, you will, of course, need a 3G/4G device - 3G-only devices will not ever be able to access the 4G network. Sprint currently offers three dual-mode 3G/4G devices:
Franklin U300: The U300 was Sprint's first 3G/4G device, but we are NOT recommending this device - it is not Mac compatible and is being replaced by the U301; we advise customers to opt for the newer device.
No one wants to waste money, especially in this economy. Buying
