Inseego MiFi X PRO 5G UW from VZW: Thoughts, Experience?

Greetings,

I'm researching hotspot options for use as an occasional backup to Starlink. For example, we're spending the week after Christmas near Lake Havasu City in Cattail Cove State Park and I'm not 100% confident that I'll be able to bolt up to Starlink due to network congestion.

Since I'm already a Verizon customer I'm beginning my search there. The Inseego MiFi X PRO 5G UW looks intriguing, but I've yet to find much in the way of useful/helpful reviews.

Does anyone have any experience with this device?

Many thanks in advance!

- Ken

I've had it since early September. Multiple short trips and one 3 week trip to Florida. Never failed me. Initial setup was easy. It hasn't had any slow moments or times of unavailability. So you could say we're happy. I have the 150gb plan with it.

Thank you very much! I'd likely go with the 150GB plan, too, since I'll be working remotely.

Thought I'd take a minute to post a quick update...

I picked up the Inseego MiFi X PRO 5G UW hotspot from my local Verizon store this afternoon. Setup was pretty straightforward, although I've still got some tweaking to do.

Initial speeds are very good so far: 101.40 Mbps down and 34.17 Mbps up on 5G here in the foothills west of Reno.

Will Verizon stores just sell this hotspot device alone without my buying a new plan? I need one for my Legacy prepaid unlimited plan and can swap the sim straight out of my 8800L hotspot myself, I don't want them doing anything accept selling me the hotspot.

If not, buy it on Ebay.

If that is an older grandfathered plan I wouldn't even go into the Verizon store with it. They make any changes to that account that will void the contract even adding the serial number of the new hotspots voids the account. Get it some where else and just move the SIM....

Has anyone done this?

Last time I replaced our hotspot I went with a 4g because nobody could confirm I could just put my sim in the undergo. I couldn't find one on eBay then anyway.

BTW, the numbers quoted above are what I get on 4g...

They haven't started showing up on eBay yet, guess that model is too new, I've been checking.

My X Pro has better reception than my previous 4G Jetpack on a 4G connection. And also has a battery saver function that allows you to keep the X Pro plugged into the charger continuously without damaging the battery. Jetpacks would overheat the battery if plugged in full time.

The speeds I got the other day were 5G (not 5G UW). We're about 4.5 miles LOS from the nearest Verizon tower. I'll be curious to see what I get with 4G someday when I don't have any 5G available.

The next test will be in Lake Havasu City where, allegedly, 5G UW is available in certain areas.
