Internet Service ?

What is the best Internet service for the price when traveling ? I had Verizon Hot Spot for some time, did not like the fact that I had to disconnect everytime I used it or the price.
Thanks

Change to Millenicom it uses the Verizon system and cost $90.00 per month for 20G of use.
Far better deal.

Depending on how much you are going to use, Walmart sells Internet on the Go Internet on the Go – easy pay-as-you-go internet, which uses the Sprint Network. You buy 3GB for $45 which expires after a year. If you use various hotspots through the country, or campgrounds, then you only need to use the Internet on the Go when others not available. The hotspot device costs you $80.

A lot of Internet providers are limited. If you want mobile Internet without a contract, try virgin mobile or AT&T. I use virgin mobiles overdrive pro 811. It's can get expensive if you go over the data limit. $55 a month is there most expensive plan, and you should be able to get good 3G/4g reception anywhere along the main interstates. This is nice for checking e-mail when your in any area where it doesn't look like there's a single living thing around. 🙀

I use my smartphone as a mobile hotspot on Verizon. Doesn't cost me any additional. I keep my plan at 2 GB when I'm not traveling and bump up when I'm traveling to 8GB then when I'm home I drop back down. I didn't need an additional device or plan that way.

YesI know some RViers who do the smartphone gig. I forgot to mention I so have my Samsung Galaxy s4 mini. I get unlimited e-mail, text messaging and Internet on the phone. It's about $35.00 a month. The only draw back is I only get 400 anytime minutes per month, but then there is Skype. I am a virgin mobile customer.

Virgin Mobile uses Sprint as their tower providers.

Yes I know. Their service is really excellent along most interstates. I have used their services for many years and been very happy.
