While pretty much everywhere you go today has Wi-Fi, it’s usually not fast, and it’s almost never safe. The rise of flexible work cultures paired with the travel that many of our jobs demand, we need to be as mobile as possible at all times.
But what’s the best way to do that? If you’ve ever tried to open a spreadsheet on a smartphone, you know that—as powerful and as large as our devices are—sometimes they’re just not enough.
JetPacks are a great tool that allow you to make anywhere in the world your office—securely!
According to Verizon, their “JetPack is a portable mobile hotspot device that lets you share your Verizon Wireless network connection with multiple devices” such as laptops, gaming devices, tablets, and smartphones, all at the same time.
What this means is that you have internet access anywhere, for whatever you need it for: Long train commute? Taking a road trip with your kids? Lots of field work? The JetPack has you covered.
You might be thinking, “Why wouldn’t I just use a HotSpot on my phone?”
Verizon has an answer for that as well:
- Battery life – A Jetpack has its own battery so it won’t drain the battery on your smartphone or tablet.
- Flexibility – If you’re sharing your network connection with others, you can leave it behind for them to continue using instead of your smartphone or tablet.
- Calls – Only smartphones with HD Voice can use data and make calls simultaneously. With a Jetpack, you’ll be able to talk and use data at the same time.
- Privacy – If your smartphone is being used as a Mobile Hotspot you have to stay within 30 feet of the devices connected to it, but if you’re using a Jetpack as a Mobile Hotspot that doesn’t matter.
