Internet service?

I'll be a camp host for a couple of months and was interested in internet service. What are some recommendations? I don't think a hot spot is close, but will check.

If you have a Verizon smart phone with a data plan you can usually tether your lap top to it. Works great for us when needed

As with my smart phone, we have unlimited hotspot.... we were grandfathered into an unlimited data plan. It works perfect anywhere we get cell reception and I can still use my phone while 'online'. It allows up to 5 computers at once.

Otherwise, we had a "mifi" with our cell company. Same price I pay for the unlimited hotspot, but the mifi was limited to 5 mg.

Hope this helps

I don't have the unlimited data plan (wish I did) but for $50 a month, Verizon offers a 6GB data plan on their Android phones with Mobile WiFi Hot Spot. No need to tether... you simply connect as if you were on a wireless access point. The only potential downside is if you are in an area with poor cell coverage like I was earlier this week.

I use a mifi to get internet when camping. It is slow, but works.
