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.

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.

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.

although it has plenty of bandwidth for online gaming its probably not ideal due to latency. for example in first person shooters you will probably be at a disadvantage to people on a cable modem, as they will have less delay in their actions and movements
