Mobile Beacon’s internet service is provided on Sprint’s 4G LTE network. And, it is very important to note that this plan is for data only. Mobile Beacon is not a cell phone provider, they are a LTE data provider. You can run laptops, wi-fi enabled desktops, wireless printers and access the internet from a wi-fi enabled smartphone, that is all.
The price offers significant savings over traditional carriers, but that savings does come with a catch. In order to qualify for the $10/mo plan your organization must purchase a LTE-enabled device from Mobile Beacon.
Mobile Beacon has two wi-fi hotspot hubs available for purchase, each one offers connection for up to 10 wi-fi enabled devices.
In addition, organizations that choose Mobile Beacon’s service must prepay for a year’s service for every device that they will connect to the mobile hotspot. Mobile Beacon has several programs available to help nonprofits that are on a very limited budget offset some of the cost of the plan.
