XCom Global launches MiFi Internet service for US visitors

XCom Global has created a new wireless Internet plan for travelers visiting the United States. At a cost of $14.95 per day, tourists can rent a MiFi hotspot that can be shipped to their US destination in advance of their arrival, and can be shipped back through the mail. Though the service does not have a strict limit on the amount of data it uses, its Fair Usage Policy recommends using 400MB of data over a three-day period.
