I am sitting here in FL on my Sprint IPhone hotspot and a speed test shows download speed at 12MPS. That's 4x my DSL at home and it costs $50 per month for 6 GIGs.

Now, that said, I have almost "0" Sprint coverage at home and will likely change to Verizon in the future.

The moral to the story is that if you stay near interstates or larger cities, Sprint is the best bang for the buck. If you go in the boonies, all bets are off.

Have had AT&T for 20 yrs, and have been in most states, camping/traveling and most of the time have good signal, 3G and 4G. Even in areas of Alaska.

I'm with Oakman on this one. We bought the Verizon Myfi last year and it works great. When we are driving we keep it on the dash with the IPAD picking up signals which we use to phone ahead for reservations during the busy months and or research campgrounds to see if they are open this time of year.
Anytime you are within signal range of their towers..you have internet.

Cell Phones

They are all the same, except some have better coverage in different areas. ATT and Verizon are probably the best. Att does not work to well in Northern California or some places along I40 however it works well in the southeast.

As an old truck driver I found Verizon superior. Had Sprint to start with--pathetic at that time. My better half had AT&T but it didn't keep up with Verizon. Of course they all have dead spots but Verizon seems to have fewest

I vote Verizon and this is from personal experience. Also Trailer Life and/or Motorhome magazine have had readers comment on the superior coverage from Verizon Wireless.

Many phones on the market can be connected by wifi to your laptop so you can go on the internet. Those phones have what is called a Hotspot. Not the fastest speed but if you're just checking email it usually works well. Hope that makes sense.
