For those that would like the ability to take your internet on the go, the Straight Talk Hotspot is jus the thing to give you the flexibility you want. If you have a laptop, iPad, or phone, you know the benefits of using WiFi (FREE) WiFi and it’s great. Free WiFi is great until you go somewhere that doesn’t offer it.
The solution for this is to have your own personal hotspot from Straight Talk. It offers internet anywhere there is Verizon coverage (which is pretty big) and from what we believe, the price is going to be very nice. While the speeds won’t be as great, just knowing that you can turn on your portable internet almost anywhere is worth the $30-$40 (or less) a month.
Added security is also a nice incentive for the Straight Talk hotspot. Although, nothing is 100% secure, you can customize your passkey to be very complex or you can be nice and share it up to four connections. Keep in mind though, the more connections are made, the slower the hotspot will be.
Simply set the hotspot somewhere high with a clear line of sight and you will have your portable hotspot ready in seconds. Straight Talk is mostly a Walmart brand however the hotspot will likely be available for internet purchases before Christmas 2013.
