I have been thinking about getting a wireless hotspot for a while to help me stay connected when we are traveling. My iPad is wireless only, so a hotspot would allow me to stay connected with all of you when we are on the go.
NetZero has given me the opportunity to use their 4G Hotspot. It is a neat little device that is compact and easy to travel with. I haven’t had a chance to take it anywhere other than around town, but plan to take it on our Christmas trip and test it in several locations. It is battery operated so it can be used when you are away from your power source.
You can connect to the device by selecting it in your Wireless settings and use the password that is displayed on its screen. Any device that is wirelessly enabled should be able to use it, including laptops and tablets.
NetZero offers easy, no-contract variable plans that allow you to select the amount of data you need and length of coverage. They offer two connection devices — the 4G Hotspot, which I am using, and 4G Stick. The Stick plugs into a USB port on a laptop or netbook. The Hotspot is a stand-alone device, just a bit bigger than a pack of cards.
If you are considering a mobile hotspot, be sure to take a look at the NetZero line of products and services. I thought I might actually have to use it today to upload this post, because our power went out overnight. Luckily it came back on this morning and I am in a warm house.
As a part of this campaign, NetZero is offering an additional 4G Hotspot and three months of their platinum service to one of our readers. You can enter the giveaway below. Be sure to do today as the giveaway ends on Friday December 21 at midnight Pacific.
