Surprised I haven't seen any truckerTikToks about "receiver knocking on your window while you and the boys playing CoD" 😂😂

LOL And WHO has time for gaming? "Maybe" on a 34 reset, otherwise, I don't see much time for it. Hell, I took my laptop with me OTR , and maybe, got it out once a week or longer. Too much time to concentrate on doing the job well, and safely. Used my Metro PCS hot spot for laptop use, and there was states I couldn't even get hotspot, Wyoming practically the whole state, western half of Nebraska etc, etc lol

I woulf if i did. i run at midnight shut down morning or early afternoon. When i shutdown i cant just go back to the sleeper and crash i have to wind down. You can make time for down time during your 10 it doesnt be pull the breaks post trip sleep. Hell you could play while doing a live load.

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I recommend Visible - 100% owned by Verizon, uses Verizon towers. Sweet, sweet, all-you-can-eat uncapped, unthrottled internet for $25/mo. If you want wi-fi for multiple devices try the MoFi 4500. Visible has been cracking down on unauthorized devices so you need to connect your phone to the router's USB-A port with a cable and select, "USB tethering" on your phone for it be o.k. with Visible. Works great. I can play TF2 on the laptop while watching movies on my iPad Pro and download map updates for my GPS at the same time.

If you want faster speeds or lower latency than what 5G allows there's always Starlink. $135/mo with a one-time hardware cost of $599. Towers? We don't need no stinkin' towers! Starlink is satellite internet. You can get a signal in more places than you can get a 5G signal. Better coverage West of the Mississippi than East but coverage will be expanding next year.

Thank you so much,if you don’t mind telling what device you got from Verizon? Was reading they have that jet pack or something is called,but they have a few of those.

Pda.net. uses your unlimited data you already paid for. Recommend you go with Verizon for a carrier. Get a tier one level phone that's 5g. Reason being is that the luxury phones, high end ones get priority on data. Verizon has the best coverage and fastest data speed.

I play division 2, ghost recon, rainbow 6 extraction, red dead redemption online, while streaming. you name it. Have had it for years. Carrier can't detect the tether. Use a proxy with it.

I routinely get 100 megs a sec with it.

Have an HP omen with AMD ryzen7 5700. Discrete GTX 1660 TI gpu. Works well

Galaxy s21 plus.

I routinely play on my 10 hours, weather shut downs. Etc.

Davy, the guys here, love theirs, too~!

Same make/model the husband & kiddo have, here. Verizon, as well. Have been extremely happy, even here at home in 'rural' Ohio, when nothing else (including our Century Link internet & home phone provider) cares to work, in bad weather. Excellent back up & all !

I had a jetpack, verizons plan for it is ridiculous. Unlimited data but only 15g for hotspot. I went with otr mobile, high caps for hotspot and works on different carriers towers, whichever gets the best signal.

This ^^^^ right here. We've looked into it; have no NEED atm, but .... Visible looks awesome IF it's in your OWN network, as P'Pearl states. Netflix (and many others!) are cracking down on sharing, as well (and as should be.)

Back when I started driving unlimited data wasn't an option. I knew a driver who liked playing XBox games with his friends back home on his down time. He was paying Verizon $500/mo. for 100GB!
