I'm curious what the best mobile hotspot option for a heavy user is. I listen to radio online, videos, etc. I have been leaning towards verizon with 10gb but not sure if that's enough data. Do any unlimited options like virgin mobile offer good enough coverage and speed or should I get verizon? Or I guess I could have a verizon smartphone and other unlimited mifi. Any heavy users with opinions thank you. Love my "series of tubes"

10 gb is not enough data but other unlimited data plans do not offer the coverage that Verizon offers. I am still unlimited data on my phone so that helps me alot but there are times when I still go over the 10 gb on my computer.

What is your coverage like in the following state with Verizon: Wyoming on 80, Indiana on 80 and WI. Those are the state Sprint suxss at lol Evidently they are uping their towers but idk. They have been really sucky lately

We've had Verizon for years...and WY is one of the few places that can be a little iffy. TSB sez that from the 131 to the 145 on I 80 its dead, and theres no reception at Cokeville WY. Other than that, its ok.

I have both sprint and Verizon, I've had 4g LTE from at Louis to the west side of Wyoming with my note 3 on vow, my iPhone 6 on sprint is in extended coverage with 1x not even 3G.. I only have sprint as GTI gives a 20% off a month so I pay 35$ (50$ plan) for unlimited everything when I have the service in major cities.

Works for me as I don't do a ton of heavy Internet. Few Netflix hrs when I have time.

Not to get too techie but if you have a decent smart phone (android version) and root the phone, you can use it as a wifi hot spot and tether other items to it. The nice thing about rooting the phone is that you will never have to worry about burning data or paying extra to your service provider because they won't be able to see the data usage.
