How Can You Have Access to the Internet All the Time?

When you have an online business, work online, or just need to check in with social media wherever you are, a reliable internet connection is always the first thing on your mind when traveling or being away from home. By using a mobile USB broadband device from Verizon on the 3G network and also LTE, you can ensure that you stay connected when Wi-Fi isn't available. Wireless mobile modems use a SIM card, are simple to use, and much smaller than a usual home internet router.

What USB Modems are There?

You do not need to charge a USB modem as they take their power from your laptop. Simply plug in the device and instantly connect to the internet after a brief and simple setup process.

  • USB760: This is a 3G mobile broadband aircard no longer being manufactured but still available if you know where to look.
  • USB730L: You can get secure internet access in over 200 countries with this global USB modem, and also enjoy 4G LTE network coverage across the USA. It's compatible with Mac, Windows, and other operating systems.
  • UM175: This white USB modem is also discontinued by the manufacturer. It comes with a CD that you need to insert into your laptop in order to complete the setup process.

Are there Other Non-USB Broadband Devices?

Aside from USB mobile broadband devices, you can also find other devices from Verizon that do not need to plug into your laptop. Unlike USB modems, you need to charge these before use, and the number of hours you will get depends entirely on the device. Some of these models are:

  • Jetpack AC791L: This is a 4G LTE mobile hotspot that gives you fast and secure internet. You can use it for up to 24 hours off one charge and connect up to 15 devices such as laptops, phones, or tablets. It supports the latest in speed, performance, and bandwidth and can even charge your smartphone should it run flat.
  • Jetpack 7730L: This MiFi device is both a mobile hotspot when you're on the go and a charger for your smartphone or tablet. The built-in interface allows you to easily manage passwords and settings.
  • Ellipsis Jetpack MHS900L: This is a pocket-sized modem that can connect up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices at any one time. You can get up to ten hours of internet access and fast connections, plus the LED display keeps you informed of your usage, signal strength, and battery life.
