Internet Access in the Car

access internet while travelingAll the cool gadgets, gismos and games have transformed how many travelers pass time in the car. However, with the advent of smart phones, people increasingly want to access the Internet on a variety of devices. If the device works from cell service, you likely have Internet if you have cell coverage.

However, many iPod Touches, iPads, and tablets can also be used to access the Internet, even in the car while traveling. You can create your own “hot spot” in your vehicle with what is called a Mobile HotSpot or WiFi Hotspot . Most major carriers offer these, such as Sprint and Verizon. All you have to do is enter your zip code on this Sprint page to find out what’s available in your area. This is ideal for accessing the Internet while on the road, in more remote areas, camping, fishing, etc.
