New with a hot spot

I finally dropped the land line and went wireless with a JetPack 4G hot spot.  Up to now it is working great.  I do have the speed that I expected and connecting all my devices to it was very simple.  The only problem is that since I dropped the land line I lost my movies on demand from Directv and also will not be able to pay for PPV with the remote.  From now on I will have to go to their site (Directv) and do the order and payment on their site.  Besides that I don't seem to have any problems.  Any comments, good or bad???

So you dropped your cable (I assume DSL) internet but maintained your satelite TV?  You should be happy with that decision as long as you can keep your data plan under control.  4G LTE speed is great, but with that great speed comes great responsibility.  Stay on top of your data plan and you will be happy.

I would also recommend making a habit out of shutting down your mobile hotspot when you are not using it.  These devices are not intended to be an always-on device like your previous cable internet device.  This assumption is one of the biggest mistakes that new Mobile Hotspot owners make.

Thank you for your info.  I did have the JetPack on all the time.  I will turn it off when not in use.  The only thing I have to figure out is how to pay for the PPV movies on Directv.  I Know I can do it through the iPad or the desktop but I have not figured out yet.  Thanks again.  Carlos
