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...

Question

Can you use this hot spot to stream to your TV using a Roku?

I know you need to have an internet connection to stream with Roku, but does the "hot spot" take the place of a modem so you can stream?

Just scan available networks on your Roku and connect it wordlessly to the Hotspot and boom. So to answer your question, YES.

answer 2
Yes it is a cellular modem and a wireless router in one. You will use alot of bandwidth streaming tv so be aware it may not be cost effective to use for that purpose. If you don't have a cheaper option you will probably want to keep video streams on a lower quality

Question

Will this device provide internet regardless of the wifi hot spots available?

I do not always have any wifi available so I need a wireless broadband device that will allow me to use the net anywhere.

This is a piece of junk. You can use the net provided the 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.

Yes, you can use it anywhere! We use it in the car going down the road. Also, we live in a remote area where there are no wifi spots available, and very little internet access. It works great!

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 ;)

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.
