Review: Ellipsis Jetpack MHS900L for Verizon by Franklin Wireless (Mobile WiFi Hotspot)

The Ellipsis Jetpack MHS900L is an update on the Ellipsis Jetpack MHS800L and is in Verizon's lineup as the carrier's most basic mobile hotspot. It is often available with their prepaid plans.

If you're considering a Verizon hotspot purchase, it's probably better to go with the Inseego 8800L or Novatel 7730L - both of which will give you more capability and much more 'future-proofing'.
