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

Yes, most likely so, But it might be wise to just ask them first, Before you actually buy it there at the store where you plan to buy it at. Wal Mart onlly allows up to 15 days, to allow you still return any major electronics items to them though, Okay..Beware of this...

The monthly non contact fee is $35 for unlimited 4G data. If Virgin/Sprint 4G is available in your area, this is a great deal.

Yes, you gotta buy top-up cards or pay a monthly subscription. But if you buy this card from Wal-mart there's a 6gb 3G/4G monthly plan for $20... a great deal which you buy in 6 month chunks.

With the top-up cards you can pay as you go though, or load up credits in the virgin mobile site. You don't need a contract, and you only have to pay for what you use. 1 day, 5 day and monthly. The details are on Virgin's site.

This is a piece of junk. You can use the net provided the Sprint signal is strong enough to support what you are doing. Three or four people in my neighborhood also have this device. We are only 3G. When one or two of the children are on playing games or watching movies I cannot get on. Also they tend to kick me off. It's ok if you want to use it at 2/3 AM when no one else is.

It can be used in another room. 150ft or closer is the range.

As long as you are in the network, you should be good. Go to VirginMobileusa.com and look at the broadband coverage area. It might not be an idea to purchase a stick for certain travel situations, but I always check. Yes, there are places that Sprint does not cover, but you know what? THAT is where I use the McDonald's WiFi ;)
