I’ve been using Verizon Wireless mobile hotspot (MiFi) for several weeks now and simply love it. It’s simple to use and I like it better than my wireless broadband card. A wireless hot spot provides your computer with a WiFi signal. The hotspot then connects to the Internet via high speed cell phone connection.
The MiFi, reviewed here in this video, enables you to get a WiFi signal from wherever you may be (assuming you cell phone signals can reach you) and share it with others.
What I don’t like about Verizon Wireless MiFi is that when plugged in to the wall (to charge) there’s no way to turn it off.

While every mobile professional needs a broadband wireless card, the card gets its power from the computer it’s being used in. A battery (or plug into the wall) powered mobile hotspot can provide you AND others with WiFi access to the Internet at the same time.
