For $25 per month, you can get an 8GB plan with mobile hotspot and
rollover data. The catch: You have to prepay for a full year.

For the last couple of years, Mint Mobile has courted new customers by
offering extremely low rates -- but with the stipulation that you have
to buy service in bulk, prepaying for anywhere from 3 to 12 months.
For example, a $240 payment will buy you 12 months of the carrier's
8GB plan.

Now, if you're willing to pay just a bit more, you can get a similar
deal from AT&T: The online-only AT&T Prepaid 8GB Promo Plan costs $300
and buys you 12 months of service. (Taxes and fees are extra.) That's
literally half the price of the same plan charged monthly.
