    Hotspot or buy GBs?

    Are there any good deals on hotspots?

    I only use it when my home internet is out. Currently I plan to buy 1 GB cards from Tracfone if they go on sale, but I was hoping for something a bit cheaper, even if I have buy a separate device? I had a separate MiFi device a while back, I guess everyone uses their phone now.

    Sporadic use, the data can't expire after a month. Prefer data that doesn't expire in a year, if possible.

    My area seems to have decent enough coverage by all the major carriers.

    I also have some older phones that I'm not using and I could sign up with another carrier.

    Redpocket has some data plans that roll over if you get one of the Global data plans. They have one that's $9 a month for 1Gb. Maybe someone more up to date can chime in with something better, but this is the best I could think of off the top of my head.

    If you renew your account each month before expiration your minutes and lte data will rollover on tello. If you don't use all your minutes and data it can become sizable over time.

    I guess that I only want something $8.50 per GB or less, or I'll stick with the Tracfone cards.

    I would be willing to buy multiple GB upfront if it didn't expire in a year.

    I don't mind if I have to use a little to avoid expiration. Hopefully wouldn't have to use some every month but I could.

    Good point. That's why I switched my main line from RP UTT 7GB $18.50 mo to Visible UTTD $25 mo. So I have a home internet backup. $6.50 more a mo is worth it to me.
    I will be Judged on how I helped the poor, sick & others in need; strangers & loved ones alike.

    Visible (Verizon) UTT & Unlimited Data $25/mo
    Liberty Wireless (T-Mobile) UTT 07.26.21
    T-Mobile Gold Rewards $10yr exp 01.11.21
