One thing that was good about my robbery is that they took my Virgin Mobile 3G modem USB key that I used for my internet needs ( I don't have/need a telephone while I travel in USA, but I sure need internet).

Virgin Mobile coverage sucked, the device was painfully slow and the newer one they offer on their site is not Windows 8 compatible and they don't plan to fix it. Seriously.

I replaced the device with a AT&T Unite Pro-Black Wi-Fi 4G spot. Works great in the Gorge and I was told that AT&T 4G coverage is one of the best in USA.

Paid the device $99 at Wal-Mart. The plan is a monthly no-contract thing, $50 for 5G bytes of data.

Love it so far.

Guy - Let us know how good your AT&T coverage is as you move about. I'm leaning towards the Verizon hotspot with a 20GB plan from Millenicom. http://millenicom.com/plans/

I will test it for sure when I go back to Montreal in September.

Looked at your plan, it is interesting if one uses a lot of bandwidth. But what I don't like is the $50 activation fee. I would probably have to pay it every year, when I want to reactivate the service. So far, there is no activation fees with AT&T (but things can change ;))

Yup, it's definitely geared toward the heavy user. They do let you go into "vacation mode" for 3 months with no reactivation fee, longer than that it's $19.99. Also it's domestic US only, so probably not much use to you.
