We are telling you seven solutions to stay connected to the internet while traveling.
Solution #1 – Using Verizon Cellular Mobile Hotspot
You can get hotspot internet packages from Verizon and get yourself connected wherever you go. Smartphones with WiFi hotspots are fairly common nowadays. Almost all Verizon phones come up with wifi hotspot and Verizon data plans allow you to convert your phone into a Wifi hotspot and remain connected on the go.
Solution #2 – Additional Mobile Hotspot Connection through Verizon Wireless (Jetpack)
Using a number of devices with cellular hotspot can drain the phone battery quickly. If you are a frequent traveler or considering to travel on a regular basis. It would be wise to invest in a wireless Jetpack. Wireless jet packs are available nowadays from a number of ISPs but remain the most advisable from Verizon because of its sufficient coverage and reliable connectivity.
Verizon Jet packs are fairly reasonable. And you can buy its connection starting at $100 only. A reasonable package with 60 GB of data for up to 4 devices is probably $110.
Therefore, we would advise you to assess your needs and estimate a suitable plan for you. If you want to do your job and few emails a small data plan with a few GBs of data might suffice. But if you are an entertainment freak using Netflix, YouTube or running a vlog it would be better to consider a reasonable data plan.
Another thing to keep in mind while buying a data plan is to consider whether the data is for phone use or its hotspot or tetherable! If you buy data that can not be shared on many devices, you might run into frustration at the time of need. So, think earlier.
