Clear Spot Voyager

The Good The tiny Clear Spot Voyager can provide Internet access to up to eight Wi-Fi devices at a time with fast 4G connection speeds, has good battery life, and comes with affordable unlimited data plans. The device immediately works as an Internet source when connected to a non-Wi-Fi computer.

The Bad The Clear Spot Voyager doesn't support 3G, Wireless-N, text messaging, and doesn't have a clear battery life gauge. The mobile hot spot doesn't go into sleep mode, so the battery runs down relatively fast even when there are no connected clients.

The Bottom Line Supercompact, affordable, and with fast performance, the Clear Spot Voyager would be a great mobile hot-spot device for those who live and travel within Clear's 4G coverage.

Clear Spot Voyager

If you like Clear's Apollo mobile hot spot, you'll probably love the Clear Spot Voyager. The new mobile hot spot is relatively tiny, just about the size of a very large pebble, and can provide unlimited and fast 4G cellular Internet access to up to eight Wi-Fi clients. For computers, whether Mac or Windows, that don't have a built-in Wi-Fi client, the router also works as USB 4G modem when plugged into a USB port. The device's battery lasted a good while in my testing and it comes with unlimited data plans that start at just $35 per month.

The Clear Spot Voyager is not perfect, however, lacking a clear battery life gauge and the support for 3G, making it useless when out of areas with 4G coverage. For its price of around $125 (no contract required), however, it will make an excellent investment for those who live and travel within Clear's 4G coverage. If you travel more widely and want a 4G device that also supports 3G, which is more ubiquitous, I'd recommend the T-Mobile Sonic 4G Mobile HotSpot.
