There’s something better than iPhone AT&T Tethering (or, opt to keep your unlimited 3G plan tomorrow)

Virgin Mobile is launching it’s prepaid MiFi next week. I’ve already told you that the VirginMobile Broadband2Go USB thingy works great, so I expect the same service from their MiFi. At the most expensive end, they cost the same as Verizon ($60 for 5GB), and at the lower end, it’s probably cheaper than paid hotel internet for a couple days. Best part is, you can connect your iPhone, iPad, and laptop all at the same time, and still have a couple spots open to share.

Compare that to AT&T’s new super-restricted rates that will “save” you money, and buying the device for $150 outright is a steal. Count me in.
