I have a user that need to go to the construction field with laptop.  He needs a hotspot.  Currently he's on Sprint service that is very bad.  Other carriers (ATT for example) require 2 yrs contract.  
Anyone knows other alternatives that doesn't require a such long contract?

Thanks.

Can you get a prepaid phone card from a carrier with known good service and then use the phone as the hotspot.

I use a Nokia CS-18 USB key but it carries a commitment and probably not what you are looking for.

AT&T has a "go Phone" hot spot - costs $100 for the device and then $50 for a 5 GB 30 day data plan.
