The entire point of me wanting a phone that can have a fast connection as well as be a hotspot is bc I got rid of my cable for internet. So my router is just a box that sits under my desk. I have an aircard for work and phones for a wi-fi spot. We go over the 5 G allowance occasionally, but it just throttled back to 3G and off HSPA+ (or 4G) and I can deal with that.
I do believe Sprint offers truly unlimited data plans without throttling down speed. They are the only ones. AT&T and Verizon both charge for data overage and it's not cheap. Especially when you are using it like I am. On top of that, all the carriers besides TMO charge to use the phone as a hotspot. Sucks.
And the last reason that TMO has me by the short and curlies is bc when I go overseas, they are the ONLY carrier that I can take my phone, connect to a hotel's wi-fi and make free calls back to the States. Not Skype, just the internet. I do not leave the States much, but it has literally saved me hundreds of dollars over each of the past 3-4 years. I just wish they would put a dad gum cell tower by my hunting camp!

I gotcha. I was using an aircard for my home internet up until a month or so ago. Bought a Xoom and it seems to be working well so far as a hotspot. I haven't checked speeds as I know I'm def not in a 4g spot and I don't believe they have rolled out the update for 4g.2006 Supra 24SSV
