In a mobile broadband rental industry that charges different rates depending on the day and device chosen, this company stands out with a simple weekly rate structure and all types of broadband cards available to fit any laptop.

WiFiRents relies on AT&T & Verizon’s mobile broadband networks (you’ll be able to tell which network you’re on based on your broadband card). As such, they inherit their 3G speed & coverage.
The quick and dirty way is to think of AT&T as having the fastest 3G network while Verizon has the most 3G coverage (and reliability). Your choice then becomes one of quality vs. speed..
On the other hand, there’s a prorated data cap of 5 GB. That means, if you rent for a week, your cap would be 1.25 GB.
Whether you have an older laptop that works with only PC Cards or simply want to keep USB slots free while using an ExpressCard, there’s device for use with AT&T or Verizon service. To put some icing on the cake, they’ve even got 3G netbooks available for rent if you don’t want to use your own laptop or don’t have one.
