The Bottom Line Business travelers will find the Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L an excellent companion thanks to its fast connection, nice set of features, and long-lasting battery. Its expensive and limited data plans, however, might steer casual users away. The Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot 890L is one of the best choices for travelers who can afford Verizon's limited and expensive data plans. The Samsung LTE Mobile HotSpot Pro's superfast 4G LTE speed and exceptionally long battery life make it a great buy on its own, but its juice pack feature sweetens the deal that much more. The Novatel Wireless MiFi Liberate is arguably the best mobile router AT&T has offered yet. Business users who need a superfast mobile Internet connection will be happy with the Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot SCH-LC11. Others should be aware of its expensive data plans and hot temperature.
