We like to keep everything as simple as possible while also being incredibly efficient and affordable. After four years of working on the road we have tried, tested and dwindled our mobile internet collection down to a pretty sweet set up (or at least we think it’s sweet).
We edit lots of video and photos (see all of our photo/video gear here), update our website, manage our social media accounts, watch the occasional Amazon Prime or Netflix movie, have video and phone meetings with clients and handle all of our bookkeeping online.
Now we keep this booster in the car (very handy) and use a more powerful booster inside the RV. This booster is powerful enough at our current wild camping location in Michigan to take us from 1 bar “1x” signal to 3bars “3G” signal. This boost takes us from not being able to make calls or work on the internet from the RV to doing just that, we’ve even able to stream movies with the boost.
If you decide to go with the Sleek in your RV, you may want to purchase the home accessories kit as well. I couldn’t have updated this article from our current location without it.
The two most common hotspot recommendations are Verizon and AT&T.
Not only because we say so but most any travel blogger out there worth their domain will say the same.
We prefer Verizon because right now they have the best nationwide coverage.
There are other hotspot options, and there are satellite internet options, but honestly these two are the best bang for the buck with the best coverage, so why bother mentioning anything else?
We are currently locked into a Verizon contract and that’s ok, because from our experience Verizon has the best overall coverage (we used to have 1 phone with AT&T and 1 with VZ) and I (Nikki) am grandfathered in on the unlimited data plan.
We use the app to tether (or create a wifi hotspot) with our phones.
