Data Only Plans

The following page showcases data only plans for tablets, cell phones and mobile hotspots.  Some plans listed work via a sim card for your tablet or device, while others require use of a special device to provide a wireless hotspot.  The network behind each wireless hotspot or data sim card is provided.  If you simply are interested in being able to tether and use your smartphone as a mobile hotspot have a look at these cell phone plans to see which providers support tethering.

A plan in the table listed as mobile hotspot, requires the purchase of a mobile hotspot device to use.

You need to update, Karma now offers unlimited 4G LTE datta (speed capped at 5Mbps) for $50

Is 5Mbps fast enough for streaming Netflix?

T mobile has a few data options. 2 GB is $20, 6 GB is $35

Charge Mobile Data is now $13/GB, with promotions for purchasing 3, 5, and 8+ GB.

Buy 3 = 0.5 GB free
Buy 5 = 1 GB free
Buy 8 or more = 2 GB free

Artur

The classification seems to be incorrect, as well. When you sign up for Charge, you receive a free SIM card to use with any compatible device.

Project Fi isn’t only on the T-Mobile network. It also uses the Sprint network (AND US Cellular’s network). It connects to whichever towers it wants from those three carriers when in the U.S. (The 3rd, 4th, & 5th largest?)

Selectel Wireless does not seem to have Data Only plans anymore. At least I could not find one on their website.
