7 of the Most Reliable Mobile Wi-Fi Devices
Anyone that needs to carry on work as normal while on the go requires a wireless connection. This is especially true for those who work as a freelance writer; being able to get on online to conduct research, write, send documents, access files and information is absolutely essential to their work. With the rise in popularity of freelance writers, the need for reliable, powerful and mobile Wi-Fi devices has grown even more in recent years. The market is flooded with a large number of companies offering these services; here are the 7 most reliable companies and what they have to offer.
1. The Karma Hotspot
This powerful Wi-Fi hub is a pocket-sized mobile hotspot that is set up with a pay-as-you-go contract. It is a very simple service without too many bells and whistles, but it does offer fast and powerful access when you need it. The device comes preloaded with data to get you started and when it is time to recharge, you can get 1GB of data for just $14. You are able to add as much as you need at any time, ranging from 1 GB up to more than 50GB. The hotspot itself costs just $99 to get started.
This platform launched with the promise of free internet generation with their service and contract agreements. Their mobile hotspots offer members up to 500MB of data for free each month, and they have a variety of additions that can be bought for a fairly reasonable rate.
