Gone are the days of being stuck at a coffee shop and having to use unsecured Wi-Fi or paying an exorbitant hotel fee just to get a broadband connection.
Starting Jan. 31, a new mobile hotspot, the Verizon Jetpack™ 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi® 5510L, developed by Novatel Wireless to run on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network, will be available online. The Jetpack will be available for $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new two year customer agreement and will be in stores in the coming weeks.
A dedicated mobile hotspot device means being able to securely connect three, five or in many cases up to 10 different Wi-Fi-enabled devices without cables, maintaining and increasing productivity in and outside the office or the home. Using a mobile hotspot, construction site supervisors can get access to architectural plans online, or an entrepreneur can deliver a presentation at the spur of the moment.
The ability to share the hotspot among devices means that no one has to be off-line in meetings, airports and other non-traditional work spaces. A visiting lecturer at a university who needs to have materials available to share with students or real estate agents who are showcasing properties on the road have instant access virtually anywhere.
The Jetpack comes with advanced security features, including WPA2/WEP security, VPN support and more to provide security for online information and to help prevent hackers from accessing user’s data.
