You definitely deserve the service that you pay for! Do you subscribe to prepaid or postpaid wireless service with us for that Mobile Hotspot device? Are you connecting using the wireless hotspot or by tethering with a cable?


What's the connecting device's operating system? Are you using an Android OS, Apple iOS, Macintosh, or Windows OS system to connect to that device?
