Sprint MVNO Boost Mobile has just launched its first WiFi hotspot plan, compatible with the new NETGEAR Fuse mobile hotspot. The plan will give users either 1.5GB of 4G LTE data for $25 per month, or 10GB for $50 each month.
The NETGEAR Fuse will retail for $49.99 and is available now at Best Buy or on Boost’s own website. It supports up to ten devices at a time and features a 2500mAh battery with up to ten hours of usage. It also has a 1.77-inch LCD display.
While it’s great to see Boost expand its plan offerings and venture into the mobile hotspot business, it does seem that its prices are a little steep. For example, existing T-Mobile customers can add a mobile data line to their phone plans, and match their phone data up to 5GB, for only $10/month. T-Mobile is also allowing people to add 10GB phone lines to its promotional family plan for only $20/month – for T-Mobile customers, it would be cheaper to just add a line and tether to a cheap burner phone.
