I travel regularly for work, and, as a mom, I also spend a lot of time waiting for hockey practice, gymnastics practice, doctor’s appointments… I love my smartphone, but it’s not practical for heavy correspondence or other writing tasks. Enter the Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi. The Jetpack allows you connect multiple devices (laptop, tablet, etc.) to the Internet using your Verizon Wireless data plan.
Verizon has a few models available. I spent some time with the 4620LE and put together a quick tour so you can see how easy it is to set up and use.
You can add the Jetpack devices to your Share Everything plan ($20 monthly line access) and you and your family can have Internet access wherever you go. As long as there is mobile service, of course. The 4620LE retails for $269.99, but is just $99.99 with a 2-year contract. Keep an eye out for other special offers (at time of writing, it’s just $49.99 with the contract).
