Event Radio Rentals has one of the largest portfolio of devices to choose from amongst mobile broadband rental companies. Since their last review, there’s been a number of definitive changes.
With 5 broadband cards, 3 mobile hotspots and a netbook available for rental, there’s a lot to choose from. Oh and yes, Verizon 4G LTE and Sprint 4G WiMAX devices are available and cost the same as their 3G counterparts. Sometimes, they’re even cheaper.
Like most mobile broadband rental companies, Event Radio Rentals works in 4 steps:
- Order Your Broadband Card or Mobile Hotspot.
- Receive in your mail via FedEx, UPS or USPS.
- Install the software, plug in your broadband card or if using a mobile hotspot, just turn it on and put in the password.
- Return it via an included prepaid mailing envelope.
I received a Verizon 4G UML290 from them. See for yourself what it’s like to get a broadband card from them in this unboxing video.
Since Event Radio Rentals uses Verizon, Sprint & AT&T devices, the kind of speed you get will depend largely on which device you use. From Verizon and Sprint 4G speeds to AT&T 3G speeds, it’s all here.
I had a chance to take both the Verizon 4G UML290 and Sprint’s 4G U300 on the road for a speed test. Check out Event Radio Rentals 4G Speed & Coverage for yourself here.
