Re: Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200 Prepaid Mobile Hotspot

Cannot speak for the Bay, but here on Long Island Sound my Virgin Mobile 3G dongle plugged into a netbook works fine. I like that I can purchase megabytes only for my intended sailing season.

As far as speed goes, I've done Skype video connections as well as animated weather radar (Very Useful) from close-in anchorages. The log-in is a just a little bit more tedious than signing into a McDonald's WiFi connection.
