While traveling we use at least 10GB per month and I will subscribe to 15GB for email, Facebook, shopping and searching. But we may be heavy users.

I have a Verizon MiFi. It costs $50 for the service plan which was designed for 1 hr video conferencing each month. Using just data transfers I've never gone over and it seems to be quite reliable and quite speedy.

I don't think you can beat the Verizon MiFI jet pack for what you want. It's 4g but some remote places I dropped to 3g. But I traveled all over the USA from the east coast to the west and from North to South. I always had a signal.

You buy antenna with pig tail for the jet pack. You can install an app called "open signal" to help you find nearest cell tower. (which side of rv has strongest signal ) for those marginal areas in the sticks.

Could you please give more detail on the jetpack antenna??

Thanks, Joe

Most RV parks I have used while traveling have had internet wifi that worked from ok to well. The ones that didn't, I would use my phone as a hotspot as long as I had a phone signal the hotspot worked well. My cell service is AT&T.

We use our Note 4's as hotspot via Verizon and we are pleased
with the speed. I have found that the Wifi at many RV parks is not up to our standard.

We traveled to Charleston, SC last winter and used Internet on the Go from WalMart. Worked like a charm.

Plus, they're not secure.

But, you still have to be within AT&T cell tower range for it to work. So not sure how it works in the middle of nowhere, where it can't reach a tower. I believe it will work on 3G service too; or so the AT&T coverage maps so state.

And, when my almost free plan is expired, I probably will not keep the feature.
