We purchased and installed the Wilson Home cell phone signal booster (#470144 for $549.98) as outlined above with the very focused stationary antenna and got very good reception and speed through our phone’s hotspot,unlike the previous experience with HughesNet. For the past decade, Hughes was all that was available in our area. Our carrier is AT&T with newer iPhones.
The news hit about the prepaid, “Great Deal” from AT&T.
This is really big news for TC and RV folks who spend a lot of time on the road or in the boondocks.
The offer was $55 per month for 100GB’s of data for your computer or tablet, or
$75 per month for unlimited GB’s of data. We opted for the unlimited.
You must buy or lease Netgear’s Nighthawk LTE Mobile hotspot router as the receiver indoors.
Let’s compare Hughes speed to AT&T’s through the Nighthawk.
down: 0.45 mbps
AT&T with home cell booster and Nighthawk:
down: 23.01 mbps
The great part is the Nighthawk is portable, battery powered, and compact.
It’s a shoe-in for the road.
After our trip to NV,ID,MT, and WYO we’ll see if we get the Wilson We Boost Drive-X or the Wilson Drive Reach RV multi directional antenna, or maybe the Mimo Netgear antenna for the mobile modem.
We also got unlimited data GB’s for each of our phones.
So, I’m hopeful we won’t be cut off from ciberspace any more.
