Choosing a Wi-Fi Hotspot
Having a personal Wi-Fi hotspot gives you the freedom to connect from anywhere that gets a signal, making it easier than ever to stay connected. Wireless hotspot devices are perfect for anyone on the go and can even work as an alternative to a cellular network data plan.
Do I Need To Purchase a Cellular Plan With This Device?
- Yes, purchasing a data plan for your Wi-Fi hotspot is fairly easy and can be set up at any cellular store in the U.S.
- There are various options for your mobile hotspot data plan offered at a variety of price points, making it affordable to get what you need from your wireless hotspot.
How Do I Charge the Battery?
- Most devices charge using a universal USB-c charging port.
- The battery life is dependent on how often the hotspot is being used, but it should last at least 4 hours even if being under constant use.
What is a 4G LTE Network?
- LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and is the fastest high-speed network currently available to the public, though 5G is expected to roll out in the coming years.
- 4G LTE is a high-speed network that provides up to 10x the speeds of 3G data.
- Mobile hotspots that operate on 4G LTE will load webpages quickly and can even stream video and audio at high speeds.
What Networks Will This Work For?
- This modem was created for U.S. Cellular and, therefore, will only work with that network provider.
- Mobile wireless hotspots are created specifically for the companies theyre meant to be used for, so users who have a specific company in mind will want to find a device that allows them to connect to their desired provider.
How Many Devices Can This Connect To At The Same Time?
- The 4G LTE mobile hotspot can usually connect up to five devices at once.
- However, the speed at which the device operates is dependent on how much multi-tasking it has to do at one time, so for optimal speeds make sure youre not connecting to more than a few devices at once.
