We spend much of our time at Fill the Funnel training and writing about Web Tools for Salesmakers. In other words – software. This post crosses over that line for a rare recommendation of a physical device – Cellular WiFi Intelligent Mobile hotspots.
I have been a satisfied user of a cellular USB modem for several years, allowing me to connect from any location that I find myself in within the U.S. Just plug it in, fire up the software and I get an internet connection. Easy connections anywhere are truly a requirement for me as we run our entire operation in the “Cloud”. No internet access means that I cannot do my job, so this topic is considered mission critical for Fill the Funnel operations.
Recently several wireless carriers have rolled out a new device they call Mobile Hotspots. These new devices are different in that you can still use it in the same manner with a small USB Cable connected directly to your laptop.
