Mifi 8000 UpdateHi all! We've been getting a lot of questions about the Mifi 8000, which we no longer have in stock. We're no longer offering this device because our hardware provider no longer carries it. We don't expect this device to become available again as one of our membership offerings in the future, and we don't yet know when we'll have another Contributor Plus level hotspot with advanced features picked out to offer in its stead.
Unfortunately, we have a contract with our hardware provider that prohibits us from authorizing any hardware other than what they provide. We can't physically prevent you from swapping the SIM to another device, but our hardware provider does perform occasional audits, and if your SIM is detected outside the original hotspot they may interrupt your service. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to let us know at helpdesk@ calyxinstitute.org
