How does a Hotspot with truly unlimited, unfiltered, unthrottled 4GLTE sound to you? Ruth and I have been using this hotspot for a couple of years now. It works almost everywhere and we pay a flat fee once a year that comes out to about $11.50 per month. We can binge watch Netflix day and night, which we do when it is very hot outside. Our usage usually runs between 90GB and 150GB but we have been up there at 230GB in one month. NO Throttles.
We use the hotspot for all of our communications. We don't have a cell carrier. Instead we use Google Voice. Google voice is great because we can never lose our number. We have had the same GV number since 2008. It also rings on multiple devices. If you lose or break a device it is no big deal. Instal Google voice on the replacement device and log in....TADA your number and contacts are there.
Whats the catch? You must fall under some income limits. Ruth and I had no problem. We are poor.
