Verizon getting FiveSpot, 5GB prepaid data plan?

Wireless provider Verizon will reportedly soon add a prepaid mobile broadband plan that includes 5GB of data, or five times more than its current top-rung plan. It will cost $80, versus the $50 of the 1GB plan, and is assumed to last 30 days before it expires, like the other plans. It's said to go live on August 23, according to Engadget on Thursday.

At the same time, the FiveSpot pocket router first leaked a few days ago should be out at Verizon at the same time, or the end of August. When it does, it will replace the MiFi hotspot. The new device shares a 3G connection with up to five devices over Wi-Fi, but adds UMTS or HSPA support for international carriers in addition to the EVDO found on the MiFi.
