Web Surfing in a Wireless Network of Your Very Own | Katherine Boehret | The Mossberg Solution | AllThingsD

"The luxury of MiFi doesn’t come cheap. The device itself costs $100 with a two-year service agreement and after a $50 rebate. Two monthly plan options are available: $40 buys 250 megabytes with a charge of 10 cents per megabyte over that allotment; and $60 buys five gigabytes with a five-cent charge per megabyte of overage. Users who don’t want to mess with the monthly service plan can buy the device at its full retail price of $400 and pay $15 per 24-hour access period, which is called a Verizon Wireless Mobile Broadband DayPass."

Nice idea. Still too expensive (for me anyway), and besides, I rarely travel.
