NetZero 4G Hotspot Review and Giveaway

by Jacqui on December 14, 2012

No matter where I go, I am always attached to my phone.  I LOVE my iPhone.  It keeps me connected not only to family and friends, but, what is happening everywhere.  Recently I started a job where the reception is not that great.  Trying to read my email or looking on Facebook on my breaks and lunch hour, my phone would drop by 30% – 70% during the day.  I was devastated!  Having to shut off my phone so I didn’t lose all that battery was like losing my right hand!  NetZero reached out to several of us to review their 4G Mobile Broadband.  When offered, I jumped at the opportunity as I use my phone so much, I knew I would be able to effectively review it and bring it to you, my readers.

When I’m at work, the NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband works like a charm!  I now only drop about 40% in battery since my phone isn’t working so hard to try and do what I want it to do.  From NetZero’s website:

NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband provides secure, mobile, super-fast 4G Internet access for your laptop, iPad®, netbook or tablet in over 80 cities across the U.S. With a NetZero 4G device, you become your own hotspot. You no longer have to search for a public Wi-Fi location to enjoy Internet on the go. Your Internet connection is private and your personal information is protected from hackers and data thieves.

This portable and personal 4G hotspot lets you enjoy secure, super-fast 4G Internet for up to eight devices simultaneously. Just connect your Wi-Fi-enabled device(s), select one of our low cost data plans and you’re ready to go.

My daughter was extremely excited with the hotspot.  She connected her iPod to it and had all three bars for connectivity.  She usually only has one or two bars.  I’m talking with her right now on FaceTime and she says that she only has one bar at her Dad’s.
Right now they are running a special and the Mobile Broadband device can be purchased for $49.95 and the USB Stick can be purchased for $24.95.  You can see their different pricing plans on their home page and clicking the tab for pricing plans.

I learned that right now they have a number of sales and the device would work in my area. One thing I looked for but couldn’t find was if it would work with a Apple Time Capsule.
