Keeping Connected with NetZero 4G HotSpot #NetZero4G

Like many of you, I'm spend a lot of my life outside...and online. Gone are the days of sitting at home on the computer. Now I can connect with friends and family while on the go using my smartphone, tablet or laptop. But keeping connected with my devices isn't always easy.

I'm usually searching for somewhere with free wifi so I can update my blog or tweet a friend my location so we can meet. But finding free wifi isn't always easy. And when I do sometimes the service can be a bit dodgy. How nice would be it to have my very own hotspot. Well thanks to NetZero, this week I did!

After learning about the new NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband Service that offers no contract commitment 4G mobile Internet access using a 4G hotspot or USB stick, I received my review unit. The box came complete with everything I needed including instructions to setup.

Setup was actually very simple and straight forward. You turn the device on, wait for it to find a signal and then connected your devices to the network. Or in my case devices. Between my son and myself we use about 3 to 4 devices. Good thing you can connect more then one device using the NetZero 4G hotspot.

The NetZero 4G hotspot ($99.95) can handle up to eight Wi-Fi devices; the NetZero USB stick ($49.95) works with a single notebook or desktop computer.

The service itself is great for checking emails, web surfing and most internet needs. I was able to use my own private and secure internet service both at home and outside while on the go. No more worrying about finding a wifi spot.

NetZero offers monthly data plans starting at $9.95 a month for 500 MB of data. Higher plans are
  • $19.95/month for 1GB
  • $34.95/month for 2GB
  • $49.95/month for 4GB

However, I do need to caution you on how you use the service. See someone went way over their allowed monthly data usage and needed to top off early. I should mention (more like confess) that this certain someone was streaming online music, editing videos online and surfing online like a crazy women. Of course this sucked up all my.....errrr that person's.....date for the month. If you keep to a normal usage, you should have more then enough to last you month to month.

If you need to adjust how you use the NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband Service, then you can login online to your account and choose your speed settings: “Warp Speed” limits the connection to 10Mbps, while mere “Light Speed” throttles download service to 1 Mbps.

  5. You no longer have to search for a public Wi-Fi location to enjoy Internet on the go. Your Internet connection is private and your personal information is protected from hackers and data thieves.

  7. You can change your plan anytime, which is nice if you plan on traveling on a road trip and have more data available.
