Anyone use it? Is it ok? What is the speed like? Any issues with connectivity?

Yes. Yes. Good. No.

Good answer, brief and to the point. And what I want to hear.

I use it. Very good in general, I am in a location where I don't even get full signal but my speed is better than what I got on ADSL. Also, my gaming (ping) is good too. Only difference I found was that if for example my PC is downloading a huge file, then watching YouTube on the phone gets really slow. Not sure if this is down to the modem/router or 4G connection issue.

I noticed that this didn't really happen on the ADSL router.

Skinny of course runs from the Spark 4g cell towers, check your distance to the nearest tower.

This. It will work well if you have goof cell signal at your house. Marginal coverage = poor connection.

i have it, and had it for a month now, after ongoing line issues with slingshot over the chorus lines, at 0.9 Mbps I am now getting anywhere between 49 and 104 Mbps

its amazing and its cheap at only $59 for 240GB
