Sprint Announces TriFi – 4G LTE / WiMax Mobile Hotspot
Sprint announced their upcoming mobile hotspot device from Sierra Wireless, the Tri-Fi, which features WiMax, LTE, and their CDMA 3G modem onboard. The Tri-Fi is the first of it’s kind and is set to launch May 18th for customers who want to be ahead of the launching of Sprint’s LTE network, which is set to launch later this year in limited markets. The device is setup to be future proof for users who want to be ahead of the game and are willing to sit it out with Sprint’s mediocre coverage.
If you are in an area with Sprint’s 4G coverage, they do have some half-way decent pricing on data plans:
Sprint data plans for the device start at $34.99 for 3GB of combined 3G/4G data while on the Sprint network. Customers also can choose the $49.99 plan with 6GB of combined 3G/4G data or $79.99 for 12GB of 3G/4G data, which deliver 20 percent more data for the same price as AT&T and Verizon’s similar plans. – Sprint
