So you are looking for Mobile Internet Solutions and aren’t sure what to get? We get this question a lot so don't worry.
We’ve helped thousands of customers get better internet on the go, and the information below will help you better understand what solution could be best for you! This post is a bit long, but the goal is to answer your questions, potentially some questions you didn't know you had, so please read along to learn more.
First, mobile internet is a complex topic and no one solution is right for everyone. Unfortunately, that means there are a lot of choices.
To help you save time, at MobileMustHave.com we put together bundles of products that check most boxes for 90% of our customers who want fast, reliable mobile internet. Details below including our Bundle Comparison Chart links.
But there are still a lot of options and technology you'll need to familiarize yourself with to make the right setup choice for your unique needs. For this, we've developed our MMH Insider Membership packages. Through a partnership with the Mobile Internet Resource Center (MIRC), we are able to not only offer our members great discounts (that usually pay for more than the cost of the membership) but also give you access to unbiased educational content to help you make an informed decision, stay up to date on this constantly changing industry and give you access to a community of mobile internet reliant nomads.
We encourage customers to start by joining our membership to save money on your purchase and to have a place to go for information and help as you get further down the journey towards location independence. But even if you don’t join, do head over to MIRC and take advantage of the loads of free content they offer to help with getting started.
While we feel that education is a strong key to success in staying connected - we understand that not everyone has the time or interest in essentially ‘going to school’ first. And that’s ok - even if you opt to just select one of our bundles as a quick start, you’ll still find value in our membership packages beyond the upfront discount. As you get your system setup and start to have questions about say... data plans, installation, best practices or are wondering when its time to upgrade components of your setup .. you’ll find your membership delivers value from day one and into the future with full access to MIRC. And, only members of MIRC get access to our advanced technical support forum and content, where you can get additional configuration guidance from our combined staff of mobile internet experts.
So what internet package is right for you?
A great place to start is with our bundle as they have everything you need to get started. All of them come with a Pepwave LTE Advanced router that has built-in wifi, and a roof mount antenna which greatly improves the ability to receive service for both LTE-A and Wi-Fi. All of our bundles also work with all carrier hotspot plans. Please note the ship dates on each listing to ensure they will arrive in time.
Below is information about popular bundles but before you get started we recommend watching a detailed video that walks you through some basics on the internet and the terminology and then explains each of the bundles. Some of our newer bundles are not featured but the names of each bundle remain the same, just with newer versions so the video is still easy to follow. See our bundle comparison chart for up to date bundle specs/comparison.
Below is a summary of our Popular Bundles. We have also created a handy bundle comparison chart to help you with your decision.
Our full-timer bundle is very popular and friendlier on the budget. You get a CAT 6 Pepwave that had two sim card slots (one sim is active at a time) and is compatible with all major US carriers. You get the modem, the roof antenna, and the DC power cable in the bundle, everything needed to get started with stable reliable internet. This bundle works great with Netflix and streaming and is a top seller for folks that don't need the crazy speed or dual modem features of the above models. Full Timer Bundle Link
Our top selling bundle is the Ultimate Road Warrior (updated to VR2 for 2022) bundle which now has an upgraded processor for faster throughput and a CAT-7 and CAT-12 modem combo making it ideal for T-Mobile, Verizon & AT&T. Previous generations were not optimized for T-Mobile. The Ultimate Road Warrior can run two cellular data plans at the same time. Paired with a Roof antenna, this is our top solution but really shines when a customer has two data plans so it isn't for folks who aren't ready to spend money on two data plans). It does work with just one data plan if you're looking to future proof. The Ultimate Road Warrior LE is optimized for AT&T and Verizon only but adds additional wired ethernet ports.
If you're looking for the fastest possible download speeds with maximum compatibility for the latest cellular bands and technology then take a look at our Speed Demon Bundle. Now be careful as everyone just assumes yea I want fast! In reality, having two modems rather than a single faster modem is usually better for reliability long term so choose carefully based on your needs. The Speed Demon bundles are available in a super-fast CAT-20 version or the newest 5G Version which are linked below. Again all bundles come with a roof antenna, modem, and dc power cables for your convenience.
From there, once you have picked a bundle you just need a data plan. You can bring your own from your existing hotspot (not a phone plan or tablet plan, has to be for a data only device) but remember those are often throttled with data caps even if they say they are unlimited. Check the fine print. Data plans are available from MobileMustHave.com at checkout if you want to keep things simple and know everything will just work. No contracts, cancel anytime and get access to high-GB data plans not available to the public.
