Yes, but the amount of data Netflix used for one 45 minute television show was ridiculous around 450Mb. On the cheap plan you only get a little more than 3 times that much data, 1.5 Gb. So yes it is fast enough to stream Netflix, but I don't think you would want to do any marathon watching.

Roaming charges don't apply to a data network, you either have a connection or you don't, period.

Very simple, NO. Once you have paid you monthly fee, it's yours to use wherever you go or need it.

Hi! I used the device through my Roku to stream Netflix. It worked ok while the unit was in fast 4g mode. After a certain daily/monthly limit, the unit slows down to 256K. I don't think this would be fast enough for Netflix without pauses.

It is a mobile wireless unit, that gives you Internet on the go, wherever there is a SPRINT signal in your area. So you need to use with any Wireless enabled devices that you have, that the Wi-Fi setting can be turned on and off too, Okay.

YES there is, Sort of... You need to be on the $35.00 or the $55.00 usage plan and you would also need to be in a SPRINT 4G coverage area too. You would need to have both, in order to get unlimited usage on this product... Okay.

Speed depends on your coverage area and how saturated the tower is with users.

I never got over 400kbps on 3G, almost impossible to stream any kind of video.
