If you're considering a Verizon hotspot purchase, it's probably better to go with the Novatel 6620L or the Netgear AC791L instead - both of which will give you more capability and much more 'future-proofing'.
NOTE: The Novatel 5510L model is now discontinued, but due to its basic XLTE support we do not yet consider it totally obsolete.

The 5510L is nearing obsolescence. If you have this hotspot, we recommend planning an upgrade.
