The Good

Rapidly Expanding Network

Although it took them a little longer than some other companies, Sprint is now quickly rolling out their 4G LTE network. Coverage is available in major cities in almost every state in the country and continues to expand. Sprint also recently acquired CLEAR, another 4G mobile broadband Internet provider. This acquisition helps expand the reach of 4G LTE coverage available to Sprint’s customers. Before you make any purchases, check to make sure you can get Sprint’s 4G mobile broadband coverage in your area. Rest assured, if it’s not available now, chances are it will be in the near future.

12GB Plans Available

Sprint gives you three options for your 4G mobile broadband data limits: 3GB, 6GB, and 12GB. The 12GB plan is a nice option for individuals or households who use the Internet or download more frequently. Few other 4G mobile broadband companies offer plans with this high of a monthly limit, so Sprint may be a good company to consider if you’ve found that some of the other companies don’t give you enough data. Of course, choosing such a high data limit is going to cost you extra, so keep this in mind when considering your options.

Day, Week, and Month Passes

If you’re looking for a short-term Internet solution, consider purchasing a day, week, or month mobile broadband pass from Sprint for a one-time fee. Day plans are fairly affordable at around $15 and offer 150MB of data. If you need more than that, there’s the week pass which comes with 500MB or the month pass that has 1.5GB. These plans are only available with certain 4G mobile broadband devices so make sure you select one of these compatible devices if you’re interested in these plans. If you’re not sure what your options are, you can always contact a Sprint representative.

Accessible to Help Choose the Right Device

Sprint provides a tool on their website that helps you choose the right 4G mobile broadband device for you based on your household’s individual needs. Just answer a few simple questions, like how many devices are going to be connected to the Internet and how much you’re willing to spend. As you answer more questions, the list of suitable devices narrows down until you find one that fits your needs. This simple tool helps you find what you’re looking for relatively quickly so you don’t have to look at the specs for every device.

The Bad

Activation Fee

On top of paying for your 4G mobile broadband plan, you also have to pay an activation fee which can be over $30. This is a one-time fee and probably won’t be a make-or-break factor to anyone, but it’s something to weigh into your decision. Sprint makes up for this a little, though, by offering many Wi-Fi hotspots and devices for free with your plan along with free shipping.
