iSpot – For When You Want Your 4G Speed for your i-device

A while back, I wrote about the Verizon Mi-Fi. I’m a big fan of the concept, because it brings the reliability of Verizon’s network to my iPad, iPhone and MacBook. It’s also really expensive: $60/month. So let’s say that hypothetically, you want the portability of a Mi-Fi, but only want to give a 4G signal to your iPod Touch, iPad or iPhone? Well, this might be the product for you.

It’s called the iSpot, and it’s designed to provide a Wi-Fi signal just for your i-device. Really? Sure. Read the faq:

What devices can I connect with my iSpot?
It’s easy to use the iPadTM, iPod Touch®, and iPhone® with iSpot. Right now, you’re probably saying “I want it.”

What if I want to connect my laptop?

iSpot was built and optimized by CLEAR for Apple mobile devices (although Apple isn’t likely to tell you that) . If you want to experience the same kind of tummy-twisting speed on your laptops, cameras or other smartphones, there are some sweet Spot products that will make you very happy.

Alright, so it’s a bit limited, but that’s OK. What’s it cost per month? Just $25 gets you up to 6.0 Mbps down and 1.0 Mbps up. That’s not too bad if that’s what you’re looking for, but before you run off and start placing your order, check the available coverage first. It’s not available for me in Phoenix, and it’s not available in many places across the country. But if you do have coverage, and this is what you’re looking for, give it a shot.
