Upgrade to 4G device?

we have a 3G hotspot card, but it is getting touchy. Want to upgrade to 4G, use it only when we travel but our cabin is not in a 4G coverage area.  will it still work there?

A 4G LTE broadband device will revert to accessing the 3G network when 4G LTE isn't available.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Thanks,

We’re looking at the 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4620L or the 4510L or the 890L – any preference?

I would suggest checking out the other discussions on the community and see what the other users are saying.  I have no experience with the devices personally.

I would avoid the hotspots (SEE *)  and go with a Pantech UML290 combined with a CradlePoint MBR95 Router, the Pantech UML290 also has an antenna adapter port so you can add a 9.5" Full Band Outdoor Omni 3G/4G Antenna or a Cellphone-Mate 3-Watt 2G/3G Direct Connect Amplifier to increase your 3G Coverage if you need to.  I think this scenario would be the best option for you. You can get the gear at 3gstore
