I'm not directly familiar with this company, but I'm pretty sure what they are doing is re-selling an AT&T unlimited data plan designed for cellular capable tablets. These plans are readily available directly from AT&T for $29.99 a month and are prepaid plans that you can cancel at any time. The trick behind getting one of these to work on a hot spot is you have to put in an unused IMEI number for preferably a late model iPad Pro when you sign up on AT&T's web site. An IMEI number is a cellular identifier that tells the provider what particular brand and model a device is, i.e. an iPhone 8 or iPad Pro etc.

Unless you are particularly tech savvy it's not as easy as it sounds to find an IMEI number that will work without some searching. You can also sign up for one of these plans on ebay and let someone do the hard part for you for a fee. Just search for $29.99 AT&T unlimited plans.

This guy does a fairly decent job of showing how to do it on your own.

I use a Jetpack MiFi 8800L with my Verizon Wireless account. It cost me $20 per month for the service. The plan I have is for unlimited data, but they start to throttle the MIFI after some amount of GB used per month (although they have not throttled it on me since I bought it 18 months ago). Although, I don't stream movies to my computer, both my wife and I look at a lot of videos like on You Tube and such.. It works like a phone hotspot on steroids. It will hook up to more than one tower if they are available where you are at. It is as fast (or faster) as my Comcast wifi at home.

Over the holidays, we were camping along the coast in Oregon. Our cell phones had no service (data or phone) in one of the campgrounds. I turned on the Jetpack and it worked slowly but got me on the internet on my iPad where it would not hook up by itself over the Verizon system. I use it a lot for work while traveling. It was a couple hundred bucks I feel was well worth the cost.


I find that when I am looking for wifi on my computer in campgrounds, there are often a few Jetpacks that are in use around us. They seem to be common.
