Using mobile hotspot for on-the-go business and fun!

Have you ever been somewhere and were unable to use your computer or tablet because you didn’t have wifi? 

I have.   It sucks!

Sure, loads of people have smartphones these days, but there is only so much you can do on a 4″ screen. I like checking my email, and playing a few games, but beyond that, my phone is not my ideal choice for doing real computer tasks. I just need a bigger screen!

One great way to solve this problem is by using a mobile hotspot. It allows you to have internet service anywhere you go (within the coverage area of the device). I have mobile hotspot, and I can tell you, there are so many times that I have been glad I didn’t just rely on wifi.

Business trips for one often require me to use my laptop while traveling. Hotel wifi is not always reliable, and to be honest, doesn’t work half of the time. Using my hotspot has been so much easier, and better for me to ensure I get done what I need to accomplish.

Long car rides with kids are made better with hotspot as well! My kids love to stream videos, but unless we have mobile hotspot, only one of them will be streaming anything!

Netzero has a great portable hotspot device that lets you get up to 4g mobile broadband service while traveling. Speaking from experience, the mobile broadband can be better than wifi sometimes!

For Laptops, Netbooks, iPads®, Tablets & More

This portable and personal 4G hotspot lets you enjoy secure, super-fast 4G Internet for up to eight devices simultaneously. Just connect your Wi-Fi-enabled device(s), select one of our low cost data plans and you’re ready to go.

They even have a FREE plan!  If you will only be using your device a few times a month, you can access 200mb of data for free!

    I learned that NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband provides secure, mobile, super-fast 4G Internet access for your laptop, iPad®, netbook or tablet in over 80 cities across the U.S. With a NetZero 4G device, you become your own hotspot. You no longer have to search for a public Wi-Fi location to enjoy Internet on the go. Your Internet connection is private and your personal information is protected from hackers and data thieves.

    I learned that the 4G service is not available in my actual area, but that it is available in the areas that my family and I travel to frequently, which is a HUGE plus :) Reply

    You know what? I have been throwing this idea around for so long now and after reading this post I am going to go for it. I am SO SICK of my T-mobile dropping my service literally 3+ times an hour and not even getting good service inside my home. I have so much work to do on the computer. . . time being money and stress included, I need this Net Zero HotSpot NOW! Thank you :) Reply

    I have one of their hotspots. I recently had a business meeting at Starbucks and nobody could connect to the wifi there. We were all able to use the hotspot which made me look great for saving the meeting! Reply

    We need one of these SO BAD!! I do most my work on the computer and away from home. I always need to find a place that offers free wifi and sometimes it doesn't even work. This would be great! Reply
