New Hotspot Model for Contributor Plus Members

New Hotspot Model for Contributor Plus Members

We have a new hotspot model for Contributor Plus members! The Franklin R910 model has been discontinued by our supplier. Contributor Plus members will now receive the Inseego MiFi 8000.

The Inseego MiFi8000 has a number of exciting features, including some that members have been asking about for years. These features include

  • Connect up to 15 Wi-Fi enabled devices (compared to a maximum of 10 for previous hotspots we've offered)
  • Hardware maximum speeds of 1 Gbps (compared to 150 Mbps for previous hotspots we've offered).
  • USB tethering!

For more information about the Inseego MiFi 8000, please see the equipment information page.

Please note that the MiFi 8000 does not have 3G fallback capabilities. If you are considering becoming a Calyx Institute member or changing your membership, please check the Sprint coverage map map for 4G coverage in your area. We remain unable to process refunds of any kind, an we do not have any control over Sprint's coverage or their map.

There will be no changes for members with the Franklin R910, and you will continue to be able to access Sprint's 3G and 4G networks with that device.

If you have a Franklin R910 that has been lost, stolen, or is no longer functioning and you would like a replacement, we have a limited number of R910s left in stock. Please contact for more information on replacement R910s.
