I use an iPhone on an AT&T data plan. I depend on the personal hotspot feature while traveling on the Hudson Line of Metro-North. The Internet connection is generally reliable, but once in a while I get no connection along the whole route. (The phone will show a successful connection, and my laptop will join the phone’s network over WiFi, but the laptop will never find the Internet.) Earlier this year there was a period of several weeks when I could seldom connect. When the connection works, the speed is slow but usable.
Am wondering if the situation is better with Verizon. Does anyone have experience with personal hotspot on this commuter line?
