5G capable hotspots now available as part of our new Sustainer membership!

Sustainer level memberships are here, with 5G capable hotspots!

We're pleased to announce that we're now offering our first ever 5G capable hotspot, the Inseego M2000, as part of our new Sustainer level membership. The M2000 hotspot has max theoretical speeds of 2.5 Gbps down and 316 Mbps up, can support up to 30 connected devices, and has USB tethering capability. As with all Calyx Membership hotspots, wifi data is unlimited and unthrottled.

The yearly dues for our Sustainer membership are $750 for the first year, with a discount to $500 per year for subsequent years. The Sustainer level membership is not available as a quarterly membership.

Before deciding if a Sustainer membership is right for you, we strongly recommend calling Sprint for an up-to-date, personalized coverage assessment at 888-211-4727 and/or checking to see if 5G signal in your area is good.

5G is a relatively new technology, and we want to be transparent about the fact that 5G capability may not be a "silver bullet" for all connectivity and service issues. This device may not be right for everyone. 5G service is still not available in all areas where our other hotspots operate, because 5G infrastructure is still being built and refined throughout the US. Service, speed, and performance depend on many factors which The Calyx Institute does not control, including carrier network capabilities, device configuration and capabilities, network traffic, location, signal strength, signal obstruction, and more. Actual results may vary.

As with all our memberships, The Calyx Institute cannot offer test hotspots, or offer refunds if service is inadequate or non-existent. Our wireless hotspots and data plans are offered as a thank-you to member donors who sustain our research into privacy protecting communications technology, and are not a commercial transaction.
