What’s up nomads!
What do you use to get internet for work when you travel? I’m trying to figure out the best option to get internet when I’m traveling. For now mostly in Europe and mostly for conference calls with screen sharing. I’m willing to spend $200-300 per month.
I need to:
- tether my laptop to my data plan on my phone, or on another device (like SkyRoam which I don’t have yet, but considering)
- have data on my phone for essentials like Google Maps when driving around.
My US carrier is Sprint Wireless. I have unlimited data, which I can enable globally at no extra charge but it’s supposedly 3G, but doesn’t really work. Sprint also has a plan called Sprint Global Roaming, which offers high speed internet, but it’s $30 per 1GB which can add up to $500-$600 per month given my usage.
I’m not always close to WiFi or Co-Working spaces. I’m looking for a solution that would basically allow me to get on a Google Hangout or GoToMeeting call on my laptop from my car.
Any experience with gadgets like SkyRoam or similar ones from Verizon or AT&T? How good and reliable are those?
Any ideas? What do you use?
