That tends to require a cell phone with a data plan. Price that out to see if that meets your budget.
All apologies in advance but I'm starting to read where internet access in an emergency post more often. Wouldn't an emergency be something rather life threatening? A phone alone would do for that?
I am a senior citizen. I have an Acer D250 Netbook. It has WiFi ability built in but I would like to be able to connect to the Internet via a cellular broadband internet server from any location in New York City in an emrgency. Are there any limited use plans at a reasonable fee? Do I have to purchase a USB Modem? Thank you.
