DataJack to Launch Unlimited Prepaid Mobile Broadband for $39



screenshot 023 DataJack to Launch Unlimited Prepaid Mobile Broadband for $39



3G mobile broadband on the go is great, but the costly monthly fees and long term contracts have kept it from becoming adapted by the masses. This might soon change when DataJack launches at CES next month. The service offers 3G highspeed data for just $39.99 a month, and that is without any contract commitments. On top of that, the service offers truly Unlimited data – it doesn’t have the standard 5GB a month limit that other 3G data providers like Sprint, T-mobile, Verizon and AT&T maintain on their wireless broadband plans. DataJack also promises no early termination fees, no deposits, no credit check, and their USB modem costs just $99 at signup. The modem also conveniently has a micro-SD slot so that you can use it as as USB key as well.

As if that isn’t enticing enough, if you stay connected to the service for 12 consecutive months, DataJack will offer subscribers one free month of unlimited 3G Internet access.

It looks like DataJack is operating over a GSM standard since its web site says that it “Works seamlessly across DataJack’s 3G Broadband Network and EDGE networks” and operates on “850/1900/2100/AWS” with upload up to 5.76Mbps and downloads up to 7.2Mbps.

Until now the amount of contract- free 3G broadband choices in the U.S. has been very slim. Virgin Mobile offers prepaid 3G data but it’s costly, their $60 offering provides users with only 1GB per month. DataJack’s plans not only undercuts other prepaid mobile broadband options, but it also undercuts the contract based ones from the big wireless providers. Plus, with an “unlimited” plan not being capped by any megabyte restrictions, it makes the service tempting enough to replace your home highspeed data connection altogether. SlingShot Prepaid Mobile Broadband is another 3G prepaid mobile broadband alternative, but it’s difficult to locate a store actually selling it altogether.

Here is to hoping that DataJack launches with a good coverage area and is able to offer good speeds and great service, because if that proves true, I for one will be dumping my $60 a month Sprint data plan to move to them.

Update 04/15/2012: DataJack no longer runs on T-Mobile’s network, but it runs on Sprint’s network. They also no longer offer unlimited data plans. But their data plans start at just $9.99 a month without a contract. They also have a MiFi available for $59.99 + 200MB free.

    I wouldn’t be so quick to drop the Sprint card. Clearly they are using T-Mobile or AT&T’s network. Funny and truth to the Verizon Adds – if you only use it in a covered area GREAT! If you travel — hope you like EDGE.

    Too good to be true… the other providers aren’t charging more for less data transfer because it’s fun. Since they will be repurchasing capacity from the big boys, I’m having a hard time figuring out how they are going to turn a profit.

    Ain’t going to happen, no offense to the marketing folks at DataJack. The specific downstream range they mention means it’s either Sprint or Verizon’s network (AT&T uses a higher number in its network description: 1.7 Mbps instead of 1.4 Mbps on the top end for typical use).

    Only four companies have national 3G coverage, and none provide unlimited mobile access for laptops, only some for specific smartphone plans. If a carrier won’t offer its own customers this deal, why would they allow a reseller to offer it? The reseller would be paying on a usage basis, like all carrier resellers (MVNOs).

    Not so easy to drop a contract, I think its like $200 penalty for Sprint.

    Today is 1/7/2010, I bought the DataJack 3 days ago and so far….I’m disillusioned. I unpacked it, connected the air card and installed the software with out a problem. Athe mandatory reboot and initiate the “Global Trotter Connect”(software to connect air card and begin surfing), I was immediatly amazed how this product transported me back in time when dial-up was first a hit. I was amazed that I spent $158.00 dollars on a dial-up connection. Maannn….I was pisst but tried to calm myself and persuading myself that it is not the DataJack service but my daughter’s brand new Lenovo netebook with windows 7 Installed. I tied to comfort myself by thinking that the atom processors and 1gig of memory wasn’t sufficient for the “download speeds advertised” I now think how stupid of me to think a brand new computer would be the problem. Called tech support and the “Samuel” advised that that I should move around the house to see if the bar strength would increase but no dice. I walked outside to the front lawn as I was troubleshooting with Samuel as he suggested to move around the house, tried different browsers and sites for a quicker webpage download but no dice. He jotted down my number and said he will call back and see if he can figure something out. We exchanged information and hung up. I decided to try the air card on a Vista and XP just to try my luck but…….you guessed it, no dice. Samuel called back and said that try my air card between the hours of 7:30 and 8pm to see if I see a change. I said., OK but if there is a change and get the advertised speeds as mentioned on the Datajack website, does it mean I can only use the service off-peak house? He silence grew and responded with..” I know what you but if the service does not work than we will gladly refund you the cost for device and a month service, minus a $15.00 dollar restocking fee. I was like…hmmm.. I asked him, “so you are charging a restocking fee for a service that does not do what it advertises, actually nearly what it advertises and I have to pay you to restock the product? He sounded a bit nervous but replied ” I can talk to my manager and see if he’ll waive the $15.00 restocking fee…

    Some things do sound better in theory. I’m going to try the 7:30-8pm crap and see if it work….but see myself returning the product. The idea is great of unlimited download, but it is still in the works.

    It is now 7:44 pm…..same dial up speed.

    Damn…

    Gabriel,
    I think that this service uses T-mobile’s network. Go to the T-mo website and see if you have 3g in your area on the coverage map. If not, you’re running on Edge which is sloooooow, and their is nothing DJ can do until T-mo installs 3g in your area.

    Is that pan on the stove really hot? Let me touch it again.

    I’ve read a bunch of reviews and yet I still went and bought into the datajack hype. I can understand how this can be unlimited service … it’s not much better than dialup so you won’t use a great deal of bandwidth downloading data. The manufacture boasts upload speeds up to 5.76Mbps and download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. Maybe that’s true … if you’re sitting under the tower but not in real life.

    I got this yesterday from a store here in Orlando for $149 and they said they would include the 1st month of service for free. Well, I had seen this on thedatajack.com (a Florida company) for $199 plus shipping and on datajack.com (out of Dallas, TX) for $149 including 1st mo. and shipping. There are a couple small retail chains selling these but the price ranged from $149, $157, $199 and $219 from even stores in the same chain so it’s kinda of a crapshoot on what you might pay. I finagled one from a store for $149 +tax which kind of offset the time I wasted waiting for the clerk to figure out how to do the paperwork to activate the datajack. (Side note: when I checked out thedatajack.com today, I noticed all the pages being redirected to datajack.com. strange, huh?)

    I got back to the office and followed the included instructions but couldn’t get it to work on my Dell Studio 15 laptop w/ Win 7 installed so I went to the support page on thedatajack.com and noticed that there were drivers for win 7 so I downloaded them and tried again. No connection so I called the support number. Now, I run an IT department so I think I’m fairly technically savvy but after a few minutes with him, I almost felt like an idiot, but then I realized it wasn’t me. I guess I really can’t fault him because it seems like most tech support folks just know how to read from a script and don’t listen to what you say anyway. I finally hung up and got it running myself. By the way, I asked him if they were using T-Mobile’s network and he said no, they were using Wyless but guess what network the instructions say to hook up to.

    Okay, so now I’m ready to scream across the internet and the blazing speeds they advertize … NOT! When I checked on speedtest.net, I was able to hit the high 400′s for my download and the low 200′s for upload and I was hooked up to Edge … adequate for email as long as there were no attachments. What a disappointment! but I know T-Mob cell users have problems in that area and forget ATT so I figured I’d try at home. Results were a little better but not impressive.

    The first test I ran defaulted to the Austin area as a starting point so I picked Corpus Christi, about 150 mi away. I ran several tests and this is the best results: http://www.speedtest.net/result/676815648.png.

    I then ran tests to the Tampa area which was closest to Orlando and this is the best result I got from those: http://www.speedtest.net/result/676824857.png.

    I had hoped that I could hook this up to a wireless router and turn it into a MIMO but not when I’m getting 15 Mbit down and about 1 Mbit or so up from my cable modem.

    Bottom line, don’t expect alot from datajack. It does give you the freedom of mobility without signing a commitment but you need to decide whether it’s worth the $40 or is it worth another $20 to $30 for more bandwidth and better performance. I got this for my wife so she could check her email at work with her Dell mini-10v because they block Yahoo, AOL, etc, so it should be adequate for her (and her being happy is priceless) but if I decide to go wireless broadband with my laptop, I’ll probably stick with Verizon and either buy a USB modem compatible with their service or tether my Omnia.

    Hope this helps.

    I have been putting the DataJack to use near Atlantic City, NJ. Have 3-g coverage and it works flawless. It is in use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week sending me data at a rate of about 200 kb/sec. Stays connected all day long.
    I was had low initial expectations at first, but after 11 days of constant use, I could not be more satisfied with the performance and value.
    I will easily exceed 8 Gb the first 30 days.

    I will easily exceed 8 Gb the first 30 days.

    200kb/sec dl is not 3g and most people will be returning their datajack if that is the norm (not to mention the false advertising lawsuits that will soon follow.)

    LOL, I guess I’m so used to Sprint which I had in Kissimmee, Florida for two years, average download was about 20 KB/sec with an occasional burst to 150 KB/sec at non-peak times that lasted probably thirty or so minutes. Thanks for the post.

    If you have an android phone you can use it as mobile broadband for your pc all you need is a usb (and no you do not have to root your phone) This does not cost anything with t-mobile and it is very fast. anyone interested in how to do this just drop me an e-mail @ pawindowman@yahoo.com

    Well, it’s now July, 2010, and they now charge $49.99/mo and have the 5G LIMIT imposed. The good side is no contracts and no credit checks. Cancel anytime. I do not know how GOOD the speed is, however the coverage is better than Cricket (same deal only $10 less, no contracts) – but I’ve heard that both Cricket and DataJack feel like dial-up. That’s just what I find when surfing.
