Startup Makes Private WiFi Connections Shareable
Karma applies the idea of "What goes around, comes around" to Wi-Fi networks.
Trying to find a Wi-Fi connection outside of your local coffee shop can often be a frustrating experience. Instead of trying to hack the nearest connection or find a hotspot, why not make things easier with Karma.
This particular startup is on a mission to make Wi-Fi ubiquitous, pay as you go, and perhaps most importantly, shareable. It does all of this using a small and simply-designed hotspot device that costs $79.
By linking to Sprint's Clearwire network, and creating an account, users are able to access the internet from anywhere. Karma provides you with 1GB of data to get started, after which it costs $14 for every additional GB.
