Karma has announced the Karma Go, its next-generation hotspot. Karma Go utilizes the Sprint 4G LTE Network, with fallback to 3G, which means users can stay connected anywhere they go across the United States.
Karma Go works in the same human-centric way that Karma pioneered: you only pay for the data you use, that data never expires, there are no monthly fees, and you never sign a contract. One tiny box can get all your WiFi-enabled devices online, and when you share your Karma connection with others you earn free data.
"With the original Karma we inverted the power relationship of mobile connectivity and gave the power back to the people," says Steven van Wel, CEO/Co-Founder of Karma. "Now with Karma Go that connectivity extends to everywhere in the United States. With the internet in your pocket, you choose when and where and how you get online. It's a new kind of freedom."
Pre-orders for Karma Go begin today, with a limited time offer for early-adopters of $99, (MSRP $149). Existing Karma customers will get an even bigger discount, and because the wireless data is connected to them and not to the device or a "2-year service plan," any data they've already purchased will work seamlessly with Karma Go. The device will ship in early December.
Karma was built out of frustration with the status quo of mobile internet connectivity. Getting online shouldn't be difficult, and it shouldn't be unnecessarily costly. WiFi shouldn't be the mythical gold at the end of the rainbow, it should be everywhere you are. Karma’s ambition is to fix this. It’s a movement of independence. It's time to take back the internet.
