Well, I actually needed this satellite hot spot the other day driving out of Homer, Alaska. We were in a cell phone dead zone and the traffic was backed up. Word came down the line we were going to be there for 2 hours and I had a caregiver with my son that I needed to notify. I got out my trusty hot spot and connected my cell phone to it and texted the caregiver and even texted a few more people. It gave me great peace of mind.
My worry is that it is only as good as the whole cell phone network so it may not be the best thing if cell towers are not working, correct? It was half the price of an Iridium Satellite phone and says it connects up to 5 cell phones at one time. Has anyone else been using an Iridium go hotspot?
