For years, we were grandfathered into an unlimited data plan with Verizon that allowed us to use our hotspot for an Internet connection. We used this as our only Internet connection for much of the time or, when we had another connection at home, it came in handy while traveling since so many hotels still don't have suitable Internet service. Oh, they all claim to have free WiFi but too many of them have Internet service that sucks. However, each year the cost went up until finally it was no longer affordable, so we let it go and got a plan with US Cellular. While we were in New Hampshire last month, the free WiFi kept going out, so I used the hotspot on my iPhone for a few hours. Then while we were in another hotel a couple of weeks ago, I used the hotspot for an hour, and we got hit with overage charges of about $40 or so, and had to be very careful for the rest of that coverage month. I just ordered a mobile hotspot called Skyroam Global WiFi that claims to be able to provide an Internet hotspot throughout the United States and in more than a hundred countries. The device costs $100 and if we find that we need a hotspot while traveling, we can buy Internet time for as low as $8 per day, with unlimited data. Of course, this is more than I would be willing to pay for regular Internet service but it's much cheaper than the overage charges would be if I had to use the hotspot on my cellphone. Plus, it will power up to five devices, so my wife can use it as well. Since we work online and like to travel, if only in New England, this might prove to be helpful. I'll let you know how it works out. This is not a sales pitch because I don't even know how well it will work yet, and might find that I can't get coverage from the places I need to have it, but if it looks like something that would work out for you, you can get a $20 discount by using this link, and I'll get a couple of free days of WiFi.
