Summary: When pre-paid SIM cards can be purchased, this device is really helpful to continue using the normal smartphone number and having access to the data transferts. I experienced this in Singapore few days ago, for really good value.
Summary: I got it because the internet here at the base camp is too intermittent. This thing works good some times, as long as there is a cell phone signal. You just turn it on and it works. The battery last maybe 1/2 hour, but no problem as long as you keep it plugged into the computer.

Summary: it is a nice little product - compact and nice looking. I tested with the Speakout Unlimited Web Browsing "data" plan, the model connect to the carrier through the SIM, and the WiFi signal is strong up to 7-8 meters. But the browsing speed is very slow.
Very functional very effective, battery life a bit low.

Summary: We live in Africa where internet is difficult at the best times. I got this little guy with not a lot of hopes and it has been a champion at our place. I went from struggling with our data network to really fast wireless. It is really effective at getting us fast internet and it projects really far.
