I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint. I received product samples to facilitate my review.
As a tech-saavy family, we are always in search of the latest products on the market. One thing that was missing from our tech artillery was a portable Wi-Fi service. So when I was recently notified of being a 2013 #SprintMom Ambassador I was (of course) ecstatic, but also secretly hoping we would have the opportunity to test out a portable hotspot.
And look what showed up at our door!
Between running errands, playdates with baby boy, and spending an hour or more each day in the school pick-up line, I am always on-the-go. Yet, there’s always work to be done as a blogger. Our job never really ends. There’s always an email to answer, social media posts to complete, posts to write, etc. So needing portable Wi-Fi is a necessity for my life.
The NETGEAR Zing Mobile Hotspot from Sprint offers speedy tri-band connectivity at home or on-the-go. Some of the key features include:
- First 4G LTE mobile hotspot from Sprint with international capabilities
- 2.4″ LCD touchscreen
- Easy to set up and use, plus no software required for Wi-Fi access.
- Expand up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices sharing one connection
- GPS functionality
- Equipped with the latest wireless encryption technology so that personal data/information is not shared.
My husband is a huge fantasy football fanatic. This year he is signed up for 6 fantasy leagues. Yes….I am a fantasy football widow. Sigh. So when my husband had a dilemma between two league drafts and a planned family day, he wasn’t sure how he would fit it all in. That’s when I suggested taking the NETGEAR mobile hotspot with us. He was able to complete one draft in the car while I drove to our destination.
It actually fit nicely into our sunglasses holder in the car. Then later that afternoon he completed his other football draft using the NETGEAR portable Wi-Fi hotspot. Everything worked out!
The NETGEAR Zing Hotspot is a little smaller than a cell phone. It’s lightweight, portable, and easy to use. I can now take Wi-Fi everywhere I go without eating up my data plan on my phone, plus have portable internet capabilities for my laptop and iPad. The sharing feature is great too. Now friends can jump on my hotspot with a temporary password when we’re hanging out.
If you are always on-the-go like our family, love to be connected to the internet, or need to be connected for work purposes, I recommend checking out this cool device from Sprint!
