Yes, but 4G network availability is dependent on device compatibility with each applicable network and available coverage:
4G coverage with Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go is dependent on coverage and device compatibility - Visit our Coverage Map to see 4G coverage in your area.
Currently, Virgin Mobile BroadBand2Go offers 4G LTE service on the Netgear Mingle Mobile Hotspot, and 4G WiMAX service on the Overdrive Pro Mobile Hotspot and the U600 USB Stick.
If you have the 4G radio turned on, the switch will occur automatically when you move from a 4G (LTE or WiMAX dependent on device compatibility) covered location to a 3G covered location and back. The data speeds will slow or speed up accordingly to applicable bandwidth speeds. If you have the 4G radio turned off, you will not see a difference as you will continue to remain on a 3G network.
No - in this specific case, you would not be able to stay on your Broadband2Go Unlimited plan. To switch to the Netgear Mingle Mobile Hotspot and enjoy 4G LTE speeds on this device, you will need to switch to one of the Broadband2Go plans currently offered for activation.
Data usage per activity is based on an average. Bandwidth varies by website, video, email and other Internet application. Speed varies based on location and coverage with average downlink data speeds between 600 and 1400 Kbps.
