Internet on the Go: NetZero 4G Hotspot


NetZero Logo
My name is Paula and I have an internet problem. I have to be connected at all times otherwise I get twitchy. I find myself (for better or worse) checking my laptop and i-phone ad nausea to see what’s come in, who’s doing what and what needs my attention. A lot of that has to do with the fact I am a small business owner, aka self-employed and all that jazz and being connected to the internet is a priority. Being my own boss I set my own hours and choice of work location. My work schedule is crazy nontraditional to say the least. I find myself working a few hours here, a few hours there, into the wee hours of the night, at airports, in coffee shops, in car-line, you name it. Sadly if I’m away from my house wi-fi isn’t always available could be SLOWER than molasses or GASP is pay to play (looking at you hotels and airports). Pffft. What’s a girl to do? Get a hotspot that’s what.

I kinda squealed when I found out I’d have the opportunity to try out and review NetZero‘s 4G Personal Hotspot. Even for a technology challenged person like myself this was super simple to use. I was kind of sweating that I have to admit. You pretty much take it out of the box (it comes partially charged so you can get your groove on right away) and follow the instructions on the screen. If you’ve ever used a smart phone you can do this (or just get your child to help you they seem to be able to work anything with buttons). Everything you need to get started is right there in the box: cable, rechargeable batter, wall charger, instructions and software. Yep, they’ve taken all the guess work out of it. You set it up, choose your plan and bam you’re in business.

A few more fun facts you will appreciate …

  • NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband gives you a fast, secure connection, and it is currently available in 80 cities.Β  Take a peek to see if you are covered, here.

    I would love to have it because I frequently vacation in the Mountains, and the internet reception is spotty!

  36. 36

    I’ve been wanting to check this out, ever since I heard Clark Howard, Atlanta’s radio consumer guru, talking about them. The only thing is the main place I would need mobile, Venice, FL, is listed as not having service on the map. It would still be nice to have around Atlanta, though.

  37. 37

    We don’t have Internet at home… as in, we live too far in the sticks to have a line run…
