Typically, there are two ways of getting online when you are traveling: either rely upon Wi-Fi hotspots where you can find them, or pay for a mobile broadband cellular card. However, mobile broadband cards are very expensive when you do a pay-as-you go plan. With these pay-as-you-go options, you pay based on the amount of kilobits you use, which can add up very quickly, causing your pocketbook to become rather thin.
A new option has emerged called RovAir. This service provides users mobile aircards, data cards, and EV-DO card without an extended contract or service agreement. RovAir has cards from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless available. Simply rent the mobile broadband card by the day when you need it. The costs start at $5.95 per day with a three day minimum.
Note: Be sure to research the area you’re traveling to. For example, some metropolitan areas are better served by AT&T where others might have broader network access with Verizon Wireless. Look at each service provider’s coverage map for more information.
