What’s a Hotspot device? These modem/routers are used with cell phone companies to provide in-home Internet just like you would get from Comcast. If you are in an area where there is no decent Internet coverage, you can use one of these Hotspot devices to connect to the Internet. Be prepared to pay quite a bit though. Data caps are lower than traditional Internet. You can also use most newer smartphones as a hotspot and extend your phone’s WiFi to other devices in your home. That is another article and another time though. For now, let’s focus on the modem/routers.
