Verizon Wireless Fivespot, the First Global Ready Mobile HotSpot

Not too sure about the name FiveSpot, but hey what’s in a name right? I say as long as it works I don’t care too much for what it’s called. The new Wi-Fi hotspot from Verizon is 3G and it’s global ready so you can take it anyway.  It’ll set you back $100 after $100 mail-in rebate with new 2yr agreement. Plans range from $40 to $80, and there’s several to choose from like pay as you go basically where it expires in a month, or just straight monthly access.
