    Guys what you use with your Surface Pro 3s?

    I was using VM broanband2go 4g unlimited plan, but windows 8.1 doesn't work
    with the VM u600 usb stick. So shopping for new plan/device.

    What you use?

    Welcome to the forum

    Wal-Mart has a prepaid, (never expires) portable hotspot that works with anything.

    Not sure what phone you have, but you can set up a hotspot through your phone, which most carriers charge $20 a month for and you share your data plan.

    I use a Virgin Mobile Sierra Wireless Pro 3g/4g wireless hotspot. I'm grandfathered in on a $35 per month 2gb 3g, and unlimited 4g (up to 10gb then throttled) plan. Works perfectly either wireless or plugged in to a usb port. Battery lasts about 4 hours, same as my Surface Pro 1 lasts when busy. Download speed is about 9.5 MGBs, upload about 3 MGBs. Can connect 5 devices wirelessly.

    I had a VM usb stick before I got the Sierra Wireless Pro. It never connected better than 3g, and was slow as dialup. Needed another option, as I won't pay $60 a month for cable internet, and needed something portable. I've been very pleased with my setup...

    I have a Three Mi-Fi, but not pre-paid, I pay £8 p/m for 5GB data.

    Yes, I'm using The Virgin Mobile Overdrive Pro, but with Windows 8.1.1 on my Surface Pro 1. I haven't seen the need to upgrade to a SP3 yet, Maybe when the SP4's come out and the price drops. It has been working flawlessly with the SP1.
