I've started looking for a hotspot to replace my home internet. I need fast internet, so unlimited 2G isn't what I'm looking for. Is there another plan any better than this one for around this much data?
Needs to be under $60 or there's no point in switching.
Haha, thanks KentE!
It was easy to see this was a good deal, I just haven't been following phone deals much since the sad day that Ring+ closed.
I've been with Redpocket and my wife has been with Twigby. We just got her a new galaxy S6 to replace her old galaxy S6 (she really liked the phone). With it being new, it didn't pass Sprints financial test of being on Sprint for 50 days and we had to switch her to Sprint. We got the $25 plan that is just under $30 a month with tax.
That's much more than I'd like to spend, and much more service than she uses. But, happy wife = happy life.
In another month, we'll be past the 50 day rule and we'll drop back down to a cheaper plan that fits her very light usage better.
Thanks for the confirmation that the hotspot deal is as good as I thought it was upon first glance.
I thought the speed limit now applies to the hotspot only meaning the device itself will have no imposed limits. I have tested that and for the most part does remain true (sometimes the hotspot will deliver more than the 5mbps). I will say the maximums will vary by area. Within my local area, I typically hit 16 - 30 Mbps. While I was out on the Tampa area, I hit 110 Mbps download an 12.2 Mbps upload on an iPhone 6s. To be honest, I was surprised (hence the screenshot).
PS. Screenshot pulled from the app history itself since I would not find the original. If only I could get that type of performance at my location - then my ISP would be out the door for sure.
