NetZero Jumps to Sprint's 3G Network
Updated: clarified that service is still available via WiMAX.
NetZero Wireless today said that its mobile broadband service now runs on Sprint's CDMA-based 3G network. It previously ran only on Clearwire's WiMAX network. Now that it is available via 3G and WiMAX, NetZero Wireless customers have greater network access thanks to Sprint's large CDMA footprint, which covers about 276 million Americans. NetZero Wireless, which launched in 2012, offers broadband-only services to mobile hotspots, laptops, tablets, and netbooks. NetZero does not require contracts and offers month-to-month service that can be cancelled at any time. The company offers four different service plans to meet its customers' budgeting needs.
