Verizon MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot

Verizon's version of the MiFi 2200 can use only Verizon's network you can't plug any other 3G modem into it. Powered only by a battery, the Verizon MiFi provides Internet access to up to five devices in a range of about 30 to 40 feet via 802.11g (not the faster 802.11n).

The included VZAccess Management client application has a Microsoft VPN client,Text Messaging tool, and it provides information on your Wi-Fi network. VZAccess is slightly easier to use than the other interfaces, but it has some minor bugs like not detecting wireless networks with hidden SSIDs, even if the networks were preferred networks in Windows.

Battery life for the MiFi, rated at 4 hours with constant use, drops much faster with multiple devices: just over 90 minutes with four Wi-Fi connections. It picked up the SSID of the MiFi at almost 50 feet but the service was sporadic. In speed tests, the Verizon MiFi reached its highest throughput speed at 2.5 Mbps for downloads and 0.9 Mbps for uploads.

Although the Verizon MiFi runs a bit hotter than I prefer (especially if it's going to be in your pocket) and battery life is too short,this device is still a good basic choice for getting the Web on the go.
