Telava Broadband Bullet 3G Stick: Free To Use And Return, No Contract Required

Mobile broadband use is on the rise, and there's no denying that it will continue to grow in popularity as networks blossom and society encourages people to be continually available regardless of their location. The primary issue with getting mobile Internet from one of the major U.S. carriers is the 2-year agreement that's connected to most of the USB WWAN sticks. Few people are eager to commit themselves to paying $60+ per month for mobile data, let alone commit to doing so for 24 whole months.

Thankfully, there's now an alternative. It's not the very first non-contract mobile data solution we have seen, but it's certainly one of the better options (and a little competition never hurt the consumer). Reportedly, the $200 stick can be purchased outright or "leased" with just a $100 security deposit, and so long as you return it, you'll get you $100 back (if it's in good, working condition). While you have it, you pay $50 per month for 5GB of data, but for just $10 more per month you can have access to unlimited mobile data.



This "Broadband Bullet" plugs into any USB port and operates on HSPA and HSPA+ networks at up to 7.2Mbps or 12Mbps. If you live way out in a rural area, chances are your signal won't be any good, for it's a great option for travelers who find themselves in various cities in need of mobile broadband.

I wonder what the coverage is really like? Whose network does this run on?

If I had 3G coverage at my house, I would get one immediately. This is the first mobile broadband option I have seen that offers unlimited data, and for a reasonable price no less.

This is exactly like my Clear channel. Yes you can add a sd card, No its not 3G...Its actually 4G! 57 a month with 100 deposit (rfndbl). I didn't ask about the unlimited, but we do get 30GB a month not that measly 5GB. Whats up with that? I believe this is the new wave in ISP's so before summer is up, everyone will be competing to get your 60 dollars per month. I tried Hulu first, which is probably like this Telava. I never heard of either one, and the service was not up to par, unstable connection and poor customer service. I am familiar with clear channels rep, and so far it is proven the best switch from phone DSL, and Cable! Clear Channel Rocks!

Never even heard of Telava? Could be from some far away country, could you be supporting the economy in Antarctica,or worse?

Checked out the coverage map - looks decent for most major cities and that covers about 90% of the population...

Should be shouting this from a mountain top - "looky here! unlimited broadband for half of what verizon charges!"

Thanks for the tip hothardware.
