How Does Work?


Like most mobile broadband rental companies, works in 4 steps:

  1. Order Your Broadband Card or Mobile Hotspot.
  2. Receive in your mail via FedEx, UPS or USPS.
  3. Install the software, plug in your broadband card or if using a mobile hotspot, just turn it on and put in the password.
  4. Return it via an included prepaid mailing envelope.

AirCard Rental Speed & Coverage

AirCard Rental uses Sprint 3G & 4G broadband cards and mobile hotspots. The kind of speed you’ll get will depend on whether you’re using a 3G or 4G device.

AirCard Rental Broadband Cards & Mobile Hotspots has 4 different types of broadband cards and 2 Mobile Hotspots available for mobile broadband rental. However, of all the broadband cards, there’s only 1 you should keep your eyes focused on.

With, your pricing model depends on whether you’re renting a USB broadband card, 3G or 4G mobile hotspot.

Also, AirCard Rental provides discounts for longer rental periods. Because of these discounts, it may actually save you money to rent for longer periods of time.
