I stay in the boondocks where it is a house and then a mile long forest until you see another house. I needed an internet connection for different reasons. I like to play Xbox Live online, internet access for my laptop, so I wouldn’t use all of my data on my cell phone. I decided to buy the Verizon Jetpack. It has already saved me money by not having to go to the library and wasting gas. But let me show you what is so great about it.
This device uses a SIM card so it even has a phone number. Messages can be sent to this device. It has an inbox. This device is 4G LTE capable. I have no problem at all getting a connection. Right now it says that I have 4G LTE with 2 bars and the speed is just as good as if I had complete cable modem set. It even has a pass code. This is really good for me. I don’t have to worry about my neighbors stealing my connection. This device connects to the network when it is first turned on but you can connect and disconnect from the network manually. You can even pick the type of network you wish to connect to. Global Mode, LTE/CDMA Mode, or GSM Mode.
It has beeping sound alert so you can hear when a device is connected to it. One beep, one device. Two beeps, two devices and so on. This is one of the best hotspots of its time. This is one of few wifi hotspots that can receive software updates. Did I mention that all of this was wireless. Thankfully, it does not run off of batteries but a charger, just like a cell phone. You can connect up to ten devices on this! The best thing about that is my connection doesn’t move slower or lag any, regardless of how many devices are connected to it. You can also see what devices are connected to it.
You can get this device in 5GBs of data, 10GBs of data, or you can share the hotspot with your cell phone. You can even check the amount of data you have left on your plan. I like this feature so I won’t have to worry about the trouble of calling my carrier and listening to the annoyance of the automated service.
All together you can do a lot with this device. It’s mobile, so you can take it anywhere you go. I suggest that anyone who needs an internet connection buy this device. It is only $1.00 with a 2-year contract.
