Internet service provider NetZero has just launched a new 4G mobile broadband service for as low as $9.95 per month.
Now, owners of an iPad can take advantage of the company’s contract-free Internet service in more than 80 cities in eight different states across the U.S. by using a mobile Broadband hotspot device without even needing a 4G-enabled iPad model.
The NetZero 4G Hotspot can be purchased for $99.95 and allows iPad owners, as well as laptops, netbooks and other tablets, to connect to the company’s 4G Internet for up to eight devices simultaneously. Services range from Basic, which offers 500MB of data for $9.95 per month, all the way up to the Platinum service, which offers 4GB of data for $49.95 per month. With the purchase of the 4G Hotspot, users can take advantage of 200MB per month for free for one year and can upgrade to a larger plan without any penalties.
This is potentially a money-saving investment for iPad owners. By using NetZero’s hotspot, there is no need to buy Apple’s new iPad Wi-Fi + 4G model. The Wi-Fi only model becomes a data-streaming tablet with this device. If you don’t think you’ll need to create your own Internet access too often, the yearlong savings could be tremendous.
Not only can you use the 4G Broadband service for you iPad, but up to eight additional devices up to 150 feet away can access the Internet with NetZero’s hotspot, making this service one of the most cost-effective available for the iPad.
