We all enjoy and need high speed Internet access. It’s part of our daily life. There are couple of options out there for the world to stay connected through Wi-Fi hotspots, but it can get confusing, so we’re gonna break it down for you.
Public Wi-Fi networks found in coffee shops, libraries, airports, parks, hotels and other public spaces, are often free but not secure.
Then, there are personal 3G/4G enabled portable hotspots that are powered by a mobile service provider, just like your smartphone. Portable hotspots are private (also called mobile hotspots) compact devices that you can carry around wherever you go – in your purse, backpack, etc. The great thing about these is that you can create and even share your own secure hotspot for Internet access whenever you need it at the touch of a button. Mobile hotspots are associated with a service fee of some sort and plans vary from contract to pay as you go models, depending on the wireless service provider you choose.
