4G Provider Karma Actually Wants You to Share Your Connection

It seems to me that each time wireless carriers change policies what they’re really saying is that they don’t want you to use their data connectivity however you want. Carriers want you to pay more if you use your data connection with other devices and overage charges can be very expensive. A new 4G wireless company called Karma has a bit of a different plan.

This company will actually give you free data for sharing your 4G connectivity with strangers or friends. You buy the Karma hotspot for $69(USD) and you get 100 MB of data free. The device creates open wireless networks that anyone can connect to. The catch is, to be able to access the connection once people try to connect to your Karma, they have to sign in with their Facebook account.

Those people who do sign in will get 100 MB of free data, and the owner of the hotspot will get an additional 100 MB of data for free just for sharing. If 100 MB isn’t enough for you, you have to cough up $14 for a full gigabyte of data with no monthly fee or minimums. The 4G network Karma is using is unfortunately Clearwire’s WiMAX service, which has very limited availability, but it’s still a pretty cool idea.
