Best Data Plans for a Home Internet Replacement
We're working from home remotely, homeschooling, researching our next stop, banking, keeping entertained and staying in touch with friends & family - all of which require internet access.
Nomads need copious amounts of high speed mobile hotspot data for use from smartphones, hotspot devices and routers. Or be able to utilize unlimited data on a cellular enabled tablet for conducting video streaming & broadcasting.
This guide is kept constantly up to date with our top data plan picks for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile an Sprint - plans that are suitable for RVers and cruisers needing a home or office internet replacement.
The selected plans are easily obtainable for consumers and provide the most amount of usable high-speed hotspot data or on-device tablet data for the lowest cost.
