With a Private MiFi Hot Spot, Be Online Wherever You Like - NYTimes.com
- The MiFi gets its Internet signal the same way those cellular modems do â€” in this case, from Verizonâ€™s excellent 3G (high-speed) cellular data network. If you just want to do e-mail and the Web, you pay $40 a month for the service (250 megabytes of data transfer, 10 cents a megabyte above that). If you watch videos and shuttle a lot of big files, opt for the $60 plan (5 gigabytes). And if you donâ€™t travel incessantly, the best deal may be the one-day pass: $15 for 24 hours, only when you need it. In that case, the MiFi itself costs $270.
