Verizon of course uses the Verizon 3G Network and Virgin uses the Sprint Network as the backbone of their usage network but that does not include Roaming into Verizon's Network as does Sprint but Sprint does not have the MiFi so you're stuck with either of the two above.
They are a Broadband Access Hub that 5 devices can connect to and the data usage is the sum of all devices connecting via the MiFi 2200 Hub.
Do you have Access to Sprint in your area?

I believe Verizon has 3 plans available.
1Gb for $20
3Gb for $35
5Gb for $50
Then $10 for every additional Gb.

Their are other Prepaid Plans also.
Virgin MiFi 2200 is Unlimited Data Usage with the same WiFi 2200 Device but this only includes usage on Sprint's 3G Network and no Roaming Capability.

Huh, you are right. I guess maybe the data price plans I was talking about are restricted to the iPad/MiFi deal they are starting Oct 28. You can buy a WiFi iPad along with a MiFi device from Verizon for the same price as a 3G iPad on AT&T (so you are essentially getting the MiFi for $130).
Maybe you have been Stalking to many Beers as of late!!!
