Inseego and Verizon have introduced the most powerful mobile hotspot in the carrier’s portfolio. Dubbed as Inseego MiFi X Pro, it is the first mobile hotspot that supports Verizon’s C-Band 5G network. Besides, mmWave 5G, low-band 5G, and 4G LTE support is also present. So if you want a 5G-ready Verizon MiFi device, this is the one to get.
Inseego MiFi X Pro price, availability
The Inseego MiFi X Pro carries a price tag of $349.99 (outright). But if you want to buy it on a monthly plan, you will have to shell out $9.72/ month for three years. There is also a one-time activation fee of $35.
You can order it from the Verizon website or buy it from a company store near you.
The new Inseego MiFi device comes with Wi-Fi 6 support for wireless connectivity. But you also get an Ethernet port that you can use apart from the USB Type-C port for a wired connection.
The built-in 5,050mAh battery can last up to 13 hours of usage on a single charge, and the bundled 18W charger should juice it up in over two hours via the USB-C port. You also get a 2.4-inch screen for accessing the device settings or glancing at the network status. Plus, 1GB of RAM ensures the device works smoothly.
Inseego MiFi X Pro 5G UW vs Orbic Speed 5G UW
The new Inseego hotspot shares some features with the Orbic Speed 5G hotspot, like Wi-Fi 6 support, 4G LTE, mmWave 5G, low-band 5G, Ethernet port, and fast charging. But you get C-Band 5G on the Inseego model right out of the box, whereas Orbic is supposed to get C-Band support over the coming months. Additionally, the larger 5050mAh battery in the MiFi X Pro results in longer usage time than the Orbic Speed 5G.
The Inseego model also has more RAM for smoother operation and can connect to 32 devices, compared to 30 devices on the Orbic mobile hotspot. That said, the Orbic MiFi device costs $50 less than the new Inseego model.
