You might be interested in picking up the Sprint 3G/4G Plug-in-Connect USB now considering it is free – only if you happen to decide to sign up with Sprint for a new two-year service agreement. I guess it does not do any harm to sign up if you currently do not have any way to obtain an Internet connection on your notebook that is independent of Wi-Fi networks, and with the Sprint 3G/4G Plug-in-Connect USB, at least you do not need to rely on the availability of a Wi-Fi network in the vicinity, and you are also able to work on your own terms. Truly a plug-and-play device, there is no need to install any software when plugged in, and best of all is, you can access Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks whenever possible. It is also a snap to share with others in your social circle, since there are no software upgrades, certification or installation permission hassles to deal with. Anyone interested in picking this puppy up? I like the colored LEDs that indicate whether you are on a 3G or 4G network.
