NetZero has hopped onto to the 4G bandwagon with the launch of its 4G Mobile Broadband service. Touted to be contract and commitment free, with no activation and overage charges – NetZero is even giving subscribers their first year of usage for free with the purchase of their NetZero 4G HotSpot or NetZero 4G Stick. The NetZero 4G HotSpot can support up to 8 WiFi-enabled devices, while the 4G Stick will support a single laptop via a USB port. Each plan is said to deliver 4G service with download speeds of up to 10Mbps and upload speeds of up to 1.5Mbps.
Plans range from free (200MB/month) to $49.95 (4GB/month) and it is available now in over 80 cities nationwide including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Miami. Prices for the NetZero 4G HotSpot and NetZero 4G Stick are $99.95 and $49.95 respectively. While we haven’t put NetZero’s 4G network to the test yet, so we can’t tell you about how well it stands up against the competition, but the plans look pretty tempting especially for folks who don’t use the internet too much and can get away with the free plan.
