Here are two things we know to be true — one is obvious, but the other may be new to you. One: We like to surf the internet all the time and everywhere — even a mile high in the sky. Two: Constant connectivity doesn’t have to cost you a fortune anymore, not even when flying.
Sign up for US Mobile’s Unlimited Wi-Fi plan, and you can count on receiving unlimited Wi-Fi on 20 leading airlines including Delta, American Airlines and Virgin America and access to over 30 million hotspots in more than 120 countries for a flat fee of $10 a month. And you don’t need purchase a cellphone plan (talk, text and/or data) with US Mobile to get this Unlimited Wi-Fi offer.
Each plan provides unlimited Wi-Fi access for one device, so if you wish to have Wi-Fi connection for both your laptop and cellphone, you would need to purchase two plans.
Best bet for travelers
For frequent travelers, this is a pretty sweet deal. Compared with the cost of Gogo’s monthly airline plan, which is $49.95 (not including Wi-Fi on the ground), US Mobile’s $10 per month offer is a great deal. Also, travelers can skip the costly cellphone plans for international travel and enjoy free access to a network of hotspots around the world.
What’s a Wi-Fi hotspot?
Hotspots are wireless access points, typically in public locations, where you can take your laptop, tablet or other mobile device to connect wirelessly to the internet. On the hotspot Wi-Fi connection, you can stream your favorite videos, browse the internet and send emails without using your cellular data.
Don’t forget, though: Always use caution while using an unsecured public Wi-Fi connection, and avoid mobile banking or shopping online.
How does this plan work?
- Order the Unlimited Wi-Fi plan on US Mobile’s site
- Download the iPass app at iTunes or GooglePlay
- Go into your phone Settings> Wi-Fi to see the available hotspots around you.
- Click on the hotspot you want to connect to and get instant free data access
