Only need internet for emails, paying bills, or wiewing webpages
Murelene and I have T-mobile as our cell phone provider. we have an ancient family plan that gives us 5 gig high speed a month and unlimited low speed after that. We have never even come close to using our 5 gig. The only problem with the plan is that we have 50 meg of roaming data per month and once that is used we are cut off. At least we don't get huge phone bills this way.
We have Xfinity as our home internet provider which gives us unlimited high speed internet anywhere we can access an xfinity hotspot, which is most major cities. Of course then there is fee wi-fi at most restaurants, walmarts, Sams Clubs, Home Depots, etc so about the only place that we have problems accessing the net is in rural areas.
a $50 Straight Talk 4g LTE Wi-FI hotspot using the AT&T network, which I have come to find in most every rural area that we have visited in the past. I know this because T-Moble uses the AT&T network for roaming.
Straight Talk is a pay as play Wi-Fi. the price 1Gig for $15 or 2Gig for $25 to use within 30 days, no roll overs. Which is plenty for the basic necessities.
We travel in an RV to enjoy the outdoors and visit places, NOT to see how many gigs of data we can use up every month.
remember 1GiG is 250 four meg photos!!!!
